      sweet project man! think I met you at the dubs for ti ts show in Maple Grove, I had the satin green slammed bug. Thinking about getting my Mk2 back out next year again. Nice to see you're going full on with the build here.

      i'm hoping to have my front end put together in the next 2 weeks. i need to order my por-15 then i can really take off with progress. i'm gonna go big and pick up a hobart welder soon so progress will slow as i save up funds.
      progress from today
      chrome is over-rated i'm definately going anti-bling with this build

      done. not top dollar but good for on a budget build

      kids helped too

      I've done some work in the past few weeks.
      short runner and fuel rail are fitted up and mounted. 440cc injectors


      subframe cleaned up and painted with chassis saver. its just like por-15 only you can buy it at snavely and dosch and its 35$ for a pint.

      oh and the new wheel i picked up at h2o from the guys at orchid euro

      thanks. heres a little diy for some who might not know. i wanted to paint my distributor to match my engine.

      at the bottom there is a roll pin. grab a punch and knock that out


      then pull the shaft up through on the rotor side but be careful there is a washer in between the rotor and the base of the distributor. unscrew the sensor and carefully slide that up and out. then mask and paint

      installed


      brakes rebuilt and installed, new front wheel bearings, 10.1 brakes

      one of my favorite ongoing projects, glad you're still working on it. Whatever became of the wooden wheel surround? Not that the other wheel isn't sweet as hell and all..

      no i just picked up that wheel cause i'm the other kind of wheel whore. i love unique steering wheels. the wood scirocco wheel is still my end goal for this car. its collecting dust at my dad's. i should get on him since he's unemployed at the moment.

      tail light tint is a tranpearant candy apple red i bought at a craft store in the model car section

      oh sorry i forgot to mention it comes in a spray can. you just have to do good prep work and they will come out nice. i imagine a clean clear coat will make them even better
