Giving a 405 Sport Wagon another chance

Recommended Posts

Detective Coating is who I use, he’s a friend and they are located in Virginia.

They have many different ways to get in touch and Justin would be the one to answer your question, I just send it and he gets it done for me.

This was extremely ease to install but unfortunately they don’t clear 15” 205 GTI wheels, I end up ordering 3mm wheel spacers and same wheel bolt and washer kit as I did for rear wheels.

Savo, the 607 i just fixed up has enormous breaks, the calipers are 2 piston, i know the disks won't work they are 5 bolt, but the caliper may bolt on 405 knuckle, the bracket bolt spacing looks identical, may be worth looking into, the 607 is an older model now and part prices are lower

Lately I’ve noticed small oil stain where I park it and I keep everything clean and organized so this is totally unacceptable! 
 

Oil was definitely leaking and it was gear ⚙️ oil and it was coming from speed O ring/speedo adapter and luckily I had all parts in stock! Most of these parts are OEM and this is perfect reason why I keep/buy x2 or more parts for these cars and every time I use something out of my stock I immediately reordered whatever I used so I have it for next time.

While I was at it I noticed steering rack boots stared to show cracks (everything was replaced when I was waiting for engine) so might as well replace them while I was in the neighborhood. Factory material on these boosts is very thin so they don’t last very long time, I also used good old MT90 oil and would not ever use anything else.

Wait a minute mister! You had steering ram bushings in stock as well? 😉

I should also add that wheel spacers came in with new lug bolts and washers.

Few weeks ago crankshaft vibration damper failed, luckily I was close to home and no damage to timing belt cover occurred. Took about two weeks ro receive parts from UK 🇬🇧 and took me only about an hour to replace it. She’s back in service 😉
