Regarding the spoiler, how soon after bonding can you drive it, does it form a strong bond fairly quickly, or are you best leaving it for a few hours??

Mine was left for around 5hrs with tape holding it in place. Was solid enough after that.

@Sabbunsingh

Hi.

Very nice looking van there.

The MB wheels? Are they 8,5" in front and 9" in the back?

Van got put on the dyno. Made an impressive 192 hp and a load of torque. The map that matt from dubunit put on is top notch. Just hope my 5 speed box holds strong.
Dyno run made me really happy so I treated it to a wash and finally put my plate on.ImageImageImageImageImage

@Sabbunsingh

You sure about 8,5 in the rear? I was in contact with MB to check on prices and I got the reply that it's available in three different sizes.

8x20 ET42
9x20 ET54
9,5x20 ET57

All aluminium subframe, lower arms and hubs from a 2016 audi tt.
This should get my geometry to the spec that I want with added castor and much better roll centre.
Also the bushes in the lower arms are solid so better feedbqck from the steering.
A few more bits to come before it all gets fitted.Image
