    My EK9.... take 2

    Nice one Irf how did the paint lay on top of it? The white Sika is slightly whiter than the oem finish, I was going to get some champ white to touch it in, but with it drying out pretty flexible I was unsure on how the paint would sit on top

    My EK9.... take 2

    no, the original seam sealer had just started to crack, it wasn’t bad at all, so after giving the area a good degrease and clean with the APC and panel wipe I just laid some on top. I done a bit research and chose to go with the SikaFlex as it bonds to paint, metal and plastic. It stays...

    My EK9.... take 2

    Cleaned the areas up with some APC and panel wipe, let it dry thoroughly, blew it out incase any dust settled then used white SikaFlex 527AT to fill in the hairline cracks. I did buy some sealant tools but found my finger worked better at smoothing it out. Was gonna touch it in with some...

    My EK9.... take 2

    4350rpm @70mph in 5th gear... this is with 205/50/16 tyres That’s exactly my thoughts mate, I think a 4.9FD or/and a close ratio kit would be slight overkill for a street driven motor
