      check if the lognuts fit perfectly, if not just get new ones that do.
      these tires seem grippy

      I'm going to buy wheel studs and lugs anyway I think to make tire changes easier. Also maybe small spacers. I test fit the rears and they seem to be the perfect size for this car... They go great with the flares you sent me [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] These wheels are real light and are very classic looking... right at home on this car.

      I highly suggest getting pressed in studs and at minimum tossing a couple good tack welds on them.

      So HUGE thanks to Larson for stopping by saturday and working on some mounts with me :bow:We got the side mount done... it aint pretty but fits and works perfect! I still need to paint it but...



      Also got my new clutch, and the clip on the throw out bearing that attactes to the fork was broken off :cry: so had to swap it with the clip on the old one. I'm missing one blot to the pressure plate so I didn't install it yet.

      Installed my clutch, megasquirt stuff came, painted my header with bbq paint, and grinded the axles to fit the hubs.

      Larson was back for round two and fabricated up this rear mount today... very niccce!

      So now the motor is fully mounted, cross brace in, clutch cable and shift linkage. The cables are a little long. Going to try and get the head on and exhaust figured out this week.

      Heads on, axels and timing belt. Need to figure out my alt/water pump (not alot of room). Coils need to be raise a bit, a arms, drive shafts slant up and my oil pan and header are only a few inches from the ground

      So I'm trying to piece together my accessories and I'd like to use the stock water pump and this rabbit alt. I was thinking I could just order a spacer for the alt pulley to line up get a small v belt and be done... but I can't find anyone who makes the spacer? What can I do?



      Also went to my first SLMP and had a blast!

      spacer = flat washer.

      or just get the right alt/pulley combo.
      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      Never mind. I found a spacer for the pulley and then used spacers to move the alt itself over, so it should work just fine

      Alt is pretty damn close now. Also bolted the shifter to the tunnel (could be higher but will do for now). And found a piece of steel lying around and will use it to hold my other gauges. Going to order a small honda radiator and new water necks tonight.

      Sam I had no idea you were almost done your swap already, that awesome! The goal is to have mine on the road by mid July for the next "track" event at SLMP. I should start working with Larson soon, but till then moneys real tight. Just trying to keep pecking at it.

      I'm not sure if I need any parts you may have but I could take a look. And I guess I can offer the same if you need and spare 16v bits. later

      Done a little more work... shinny breather plate tapped with a fitting. Freeze plug in the the block. Just need to decide where to mount my catch can. Decided to use the passat radiator for now so i mounted that. Ordered a front water neck and will make a list of silicon hoses to order. After that I can mount the throttle bodies and start running the mega squirt. Tried a tiny v-belt but still need a smaller one. Taped on my front lip for fun but the whole kit needs a lot of work and some paint before I fit it to the car. Should oder more parts this week.

      Also did another auto cross!

      So did the alt on the ac mount, extended the arm and used the 8v pulley. Should work great, can't believe I didn't do this first. Also mounted the catch can a ran hose to that. Now need to find more stuff to work on while I wait on parts and money.
