Re: Engine Frame Dimension

Hi Michel, Thanks for the reply. How confident are you that your frames are original? I've measured nine frames, four complete sets, plus one and all measured at, or close to 905.

Greensand = Baby Poop Yellow
Heck Garry. One of my S3s is Greensand and I'm trying to convince myself that I like it so I don't have to do a colour change. A colour change to me is all the under dash panels, inner sills etc.

That comment didn't help me one bit.
