The blue one right?
Could you please give some information on the suspension set up? Especially the mk3 stuff in the rear?
Which springs were used exactly? What shocks? and what modifications were made to both?
I want to lift my QSW a couple inches and I really would like to do it this way instead of with spacers. Thanks!!
Thanks for the info. You mean mk3 bilsteins and neuspeed springs right? Do they just bolt right up?
I saw the previous owner of the blue car briefly post up his set up in the for sale thread. I was looking for info on that set up.
Info on yours, or any other is greatly appreciated as well however.
Full steam ahead on the 2.0T FSI swap! I can't sit around planning and waiting anymore. I went ahead and dropped the subframe/drivetrain today. My plan is to lift the front end of the car up and roll the drivetrain out from underneath. Done it once before and it's a bit of a PITA getting the strut assemblies clear, but I can do it. Tomorrow I finish pulling wiring out and finish stripping out the interior. There's only the door cards, seats, front carpet and dash left anyway. Then strip off the body trim and remove the glass (oh so carefully!!!) and I guess it will be ready for stripping and painting...Yikes.
Installed a fresh new front suspension in the 'new' 82 Coupe.
Bled the front brakes in the 'new' Coupe.
Replaced the plugs, wires, cap, & rotor in the QSW.
Disassembled the engine/tranny from the 'old' coupe after taking a bunch of measurements to compare to the FSI/CVT swap.
We'll see what's next...
I bought ANOTHER one. 87 5-cyl wagon autotragik. Low miles and NO rust...MA shore and literally no rust. Thank you elderly owners with garages! I'm going to fix it up and sell it off. I didn't want it to get scrapped. Needs some brake work and an interior cleaning. Pics when I pick it up next week.
I'm thinking I'll dye the seats black along with the headliner and really black it out. I do have the front MK3 Trek heated seats that I'm planning on fitting in there and they're already black also...It's going to be my daily so I guess I'll make it just how I like it, rather than worry about keeping it stock. Plus a warm butt in the Cape Cod winter would be nice.
