      I really like your Golf man. Keeping it OEM is the way to go. And the stance you have right now is perfect, don't mind anybody else.
      Keep on keeping on. I would love to see what else you have in store for her.

      Cheers from Dallas!

      And here it starts..
      Just waiting for a post from you stating you're going full on, Belgian style with fully polished RSs and dual webers on the 8V in a shaved/cleaned engine bay.

      Jokes aside, it's looking really sharp, especially on the Ronals. Keep it up.

      that's not going to happen. I'm totally not into cleaning/shaving an engine bay. Though i am going to paint it.

      Motor is going to look 100% OEM, or with some period correct tuning parts on it.

      thanks, dig the comments. I makes it all worth it, keeps me motivated.

      wirebrushed it like hell(spend about 3 days doing that), then manually filled it and then painted it with motip heat resistant paint from a spraycan and varnish aswell(several coats). The green lid is OEM vw brandnew.

      got some help, 13 year old lovin' mk2's. Not a common sight.



      alternator cleaned up and painted the bracket after sanding all the rust off.


      like new


      front engine mount, with derusted bolts
