Bracing for impact
The thin heat shield between the gas tank and exhaust pipe is what I'm looking for. PM me if you have a good clean one.
I've looked online at the usual places, eBay, gap, mk1 autohaus. Etc
Can't seem to find anywhere. Anyone know where it can be found if at all? Will see if by any chance it is still available from...
Took off the rear beam and tank
Ok, so i had some time to get some work done today.
What Hal said...
Well.... Too short, too much glare, too many nice Vws, not enough red cars. Now get back to filming!!
I want to be entertained!
Seems like another weak point exposed! Now go back and fix it! Looked like regular connecting rods etc., I would have imagined at that point most or all the bottom end would be forged.
That same area under the hood in the rain tray, if not we'll seam sealed or if the seam sealer has cracked etc might cause that. I would recommend you pull out the cover and take a good look.
Thanks for the input Hal will be looking at the padding.

I was thinking goes my something like this but less intricate...
Valid points guys.
I'm going back to the drawing board lol
I took a close look at the mounting point sheet metal and I thought it was straight initially it actually is on an angle and will be...
Ya I plan to brace them together and also maybe brace another arm someplace to the undercarriage just to keep it all locked in, wood is strong I'll see when I drop the beam.
Well started on the project
Got 2 super duper casters and we dabbed up a set of stands.
I made them a bit higher than ride height do have a bit of room when it's going to be on the ground. And to...
Not cool dude,
I Don't really care who likes me on here or not etc., but Fred Is a good guy and is one of the few guys on here ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING do help the scirocco community. So before...
Thanks for the input guys!
