    Polo 6N 1999

    Hello all, I'm Pete and a new member, I'm hoping that someone will be able to solve a frustrating mystery. In February my son fitted two new wishbones and ball joints for me. Three weeks ago it was mot'd and the front tyres which were fitted new in November 2106 were shot at, embarrassingly shot at. I suspected that as the wear was so severe over a short period that the wishbones were the wrong length and pushing the strut out at the bottom. I took it for a geometry check and it was discovered that both tracking and camber were miles out, far too much for the type of work carried out. I contacted the parts supplier but they say that parts supplied are correct, I know that this is not the case and I am having difficulty tracking down (excuse the pun) the reason for this. Any ideas out there?.. I hope so. Pete

  3. Right, so I've given myself a project for this spring, and it's to fully rebuild/restore my polo 6N and reveal it on May 24th at Unphased15, I know this is an incredibly close deadline, but I'm determined and will try my best! To do: Pre rebuild; Fully strip car to rolling shell (Inside & out) Engine bay; Clean/grind engine bay Panel up, cut and weld engine bay - IN PROGRESS Fibreglass/filler engine bay Primer engine bay Spray engine bay (White) Extend & hide wiring loom inside chassis legs Body; Weld/fill side repeaters (wings) Weld/fill aerial hole Weld/smooth wings into sills Install 6N2 boot Install MK5 Golf boot badge/handle Smooth left & right grilles on 16v front bumper Smooth numberplate recess on 16v Front bumper Prep body for spray Spray body Interior; (If I have time) Dye/replace carpet (Black) Custom made 6N white leather & carbon fibre dashboard Custom made Carbon fiber trim (Including entire center console) Custom upholstered white full leather Audi A4 B5 seats (Modified runners super low stance) Custom white leather & carbon fiber door cards Re-upholstered roof liner (VW logos) Rear seats removed Deck & carpet out boot and rear seat area Build/install sub, speaker and amp enclosures Build double battery enclosure in spare wheel well Audio/wiring; Run power wires from engine bay to boot for batteries (Through chassis legs) Install sub, speakers & Amps Running Gear; Remove subframe & Suspension (Pre engine bay prep/spray) Re-Install subframe & Suspension (Post engine bay prep/spray) Install rear disk conversion kit Install coilovers (Loooooow) Install camber shims (1.5 degrees) Re-install engine/gearbox/master cylinder Install vr6 radiator with in-line filler. Relocate washer bottle to boot Optional; Install smoke screen (Just for a laugh) So there we go, I'll post photos and cross out what I've done. ;) See you guys in May ;)
  4. I'm trying to find the right camber bolts for my 6n2. i have AP coilovers. i have tried these ones (ebay no 330529773472) but they do not fit. I don't know what to do. there is a lot of pot holes around my area so i need camber bolts so the wheels stay 0 degrees.
  5. Hi everyone a quick question I am trying to put camber on my rear wheels to try and save my tyres from scrubbing. But I have been told I would be able to get more camber if I use the normal bolts for the adjust rather than buying camber bolts, does anybody know if this is true and if so is there any special tools to make it happen. Cheers guys
  6. Hi guys! I own a 1998 1.6 8V variant which I love to bits but could do with some lowering / stiffening (sea sickness prevention measures). In addition, I would love to install a camber/caster plate on top to set it up correctly. Now, since the Estate version is pretty rare and people don't seem to be doing much work on them, I'd like to hear from the guys that have already done it. Here's the suspension I'm after: http://www.ap-sportsuspensions.com/ap-sportfahrwerk-288.html It offers a 40/*60 drop which imho will set the car just nice (it's really high atm). What I fear though is that camber might go to + in corners as it's a classic MacPherson setup. Would love to know if anyone used this suspension and what camber/caster plates to go for. Any feedback, info and suggestions are appreciated! Thnx in advance!
