    Sheridan's S3

    Hi Everyone


    Few of you may know ive wanted a S3 for a good 18 months.
    I started searching for one the start of September. When i originally started i just wanted a bog standard prefacelift S3.
    After a fair bit of researching and trying a few out i decided that I wanted to go a bit more upmarket.


    The spec I wanted was pretty ****ing hard to find so i made a competition of it, even though i had a long list of sites i was checking twice a day :lol:
    http://www.corsa-c.co.uk/forum/showt...e-!&highlight=


    Finally the start of this week my dad comes running upstaurs with Laptop in hand with a S3 that had just been listed on the net and it had the perfect spec.
    2 days later I managed to get down to the garage in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire (250mile one way) and eveyrthing ticked my boxes and put a deposit on it Click here to enlarge


    Here she is:

    The spec has every optional bar one or two !
    • Dolphin Grey (Rare as rocking horse **** on S3's)
    • 58 plate with 43K on the clock FASH
    • Audi Media system
    • Full Bose speaker system
    • Flat bottom steering wheel
    • Recaro wingback's - found mainly in the B7 RS4. These were a 3.5k optional when new ! The main reason i wanted this car.
    • DRL's
    • Loads of other **** i cant think of!

    Im picking the car up on the 15th, should be a sweet journey! Driving the corsa now feels so so slow. But i will be keeping it as a daily Click here to enlarge


    Thats all for now, Thanks for looking Click here to enlarge

    Got the car home on saturday. What a machine.

    Been doing some reasearch. Still cant see any tutorials on how to remove tge wiper and the motor. Im off work in a few weeks time so i will investigate then.<br /><br />Today i had a play and put these on the rear of the buckets. <br />Click here to enlarge<br />But i wasnt happy with how thet sat as the curvuture on the rear of the seats caused alot of bubbles and creases :/ they were also on the large side Click here to enlarge<br />So there off and some smaller ones are getting made up Click here to enlarge <br /><br />Gave the car its first clean. <br />Therefore some generic snowfoam photos Click here to enlargeClick here to enlarge<br />Click here to enlarge<br />For some weird reason i didnt actually take any pictures after Click here to enlarge<br />But heres one of the corsa feeling sorry for itself Click here to enlarge<br /><br />Thats it for now. I promise it will get more interesting Click here to enlarge<br/>

    No idea if anyones interested but heres my little project on my old car thread

    Copied the progress from it with updates Click here to enlarge


    Sooooo nearly had the car two years.
    Quite frankly im sick of it and want a new car but wont happen until about next april Click here to enlarge But then again i did intially guesstimate next summer.

    Therefore instead of wasting money on polishing the turd.
    I cam across this badboy

    BBS GTR3 18" ET50 rim with Dunlop race tire that was raced on a porsche in Lemans and won its category, included in the sale was paperwork to prove and a pic of the Porsche it was on.
    The plan is to incorporate this into a small glass table Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge
    I bought it from a very wealthy chap who buys out Motorsport teams and sells on the bits and bobs. This happened to be one of the spare wheels in a package he bought.
    In his man cave he had all sorts, memorabilia, bonno's old roller, simon cowells SL55 AMG and a few escort MK1's in concourse condition.

    First of all a refurb will be needed, im looking to have it back to something like this.With the help of @ultimawhistler
    A nice polished dish, gold face and have the drum in either black or anthra
    Click here to enlarge


    Within the refurb I will be renewing
    *The bolts. Cant decide if i want to go for chrome or gold :\
    *Valve sleeve with a s****y BBS dustcap
    *Replace the original decals with same OEM ones. - Already Purchased.
    *Gold BBS decal n the outter drum the drum with the help of @crazy geodiegirl
    *Perhaps a Porsche decal on the other side of the drum :shrug1:

    The chap was a little gutted that I was planning on refurbishing it, as the rim had history and was on a good friends car.

    In terms of construction of the table. I haven't got that far yet. I know if i was to just use the rim it wouldn't be very high, i have been suggested sourcing a radinox dish.
    But im on a bit of a budget and im already spending a fair few £££'s on this and i'd like to keep the original main bits of the rim.

    I reckon I will just raise the rim from the bottom with no adjustment and source someone locally to cut a nice side piece of glass Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge

    Although im unsure whether i should just have glass on the inner of the rim leaving the surface for beverages and snacks a lot smaller than having it sitting on top of the rim.

    Love to hear your thoughts on this Click here to enlarge[/QUOTE]

    He found this etching on the inner, which i hadnt noticed as i hadnt cleaned it up at all. Its got a name of D. STEVENS and GT3R after it.

    Heres a quick pic of a section of the dish before and after a little polishing.

    Thats it for the time being. But i believe he has located a company in Germany who sell the original gold paint for this rim, so this is being sourced Click here to enlarge
