So here is my MK1 project, I bought it a few years ago off of vortex. It was towed up from Georgia to the Niagra area of Ontario, where I picked it up and towed it to the east coast (Nova Scotia) it was and is an on going project. For the first while I was just collecting parts and itching to get started on it. When the time came, I got it in the shop and started stripping it down to just a bare shell. I made a stand for it and flipped it on it's side, but after working at it that way for some time, I found it to be a real pain not being able to spin it to get at different parts from different angles. So I bought a couple of engine stands and some square tube, after some measuring, cutting and welding, it is now able to spin to almost any angle I want to work at. I have been extremely busy and haven't had the time to put into it like I would like to do.
The drivetrain is from an 03 Wolfsburg with 79,000 kms
