      You bet. I'll be running a stock subframe until Eric can finish up the second gen tubular subframe with stock motormounts.

      This is getting on the level of WRC modifications. Very impressive!

      Update: Slow and steady progress. We have basically a van full of parts on the way---Diff, intercooler, turbo, exhaust,. And the list of things to do is still s long I don't even bother writing it down.
      Worked on getting the mk4 dash to fit. Still have to make brackets etc to hold it in place so in these pics, it is just sitting in there a bit out of position.

      Looks good Josh! Glad to see you are back at it. I can't wait to see what you are going to put together with that box of fans and rivets.

      NEAT! I have to ask....
      1) how do you decide what to have "spares" of?
      2) and is the decision to "one off" a part, make it that much difficult to decide?

      We typically only have spares of things that are likely to break while we are at an event---Control arms, stub axles, tie rods & ends, etc. If it can't be fixed in a 20-30 minute service by 2 people with basic hand tools in a gravel parking lot, we generally do not have a spare...

      Not molds, just laying it straight on and bonding it with the resin.
      We will be adding some 1" plastic strips with rivets to make sure it does not get pulled loose anywhere.

      Any pics of the second generation subframe?

    25. 04-20-2010 05:23 PM #100
      Eric is working on a new one with stock motor mounts for my car. Hopefully I'll have it in a couple weeks and I'll get photos posted then.
