      guy i am stoked to see this all coming together...you're even more fun to be around than normal when you're driving a mk1

      i saw a rabbit VR that Autobahn Speed Tuning built years ago that had a mk3 dash installed in it. the doors were chopped, and they closed with no issue. it was inspiring, and i wanted to have it myself.
      enter the non-cut mk4 dash.
      now i have to get my hands on a set of universal electric window winders, as i'm fairly sure that the units from a mk1 cabby won't fit.
      this car will bring out the hooligan in me again, i'm sure. we can't let my daughter watch me drive this, or she'll think that shoulders and sidewalks are passing lanes.

      I have power windows in my Rabbit, IM me for details on my set-up or there's a thread here in the MKI forums where a guy retrofitted motors to the MKI regulators.

      moved and got a modded mk1 wiper linkage stuffed into it:

      Hey Jay, if you want you can have one of a couple mk1 scirocco wiper chassis/linkages that I have kickin around. Consider it as a donation to the cause. Just let me know. Nothing like OEM goodness

      thanks, claudio! i may take you up on that at some point, but for now, the set up we've got in there seems to do the trick.
      and now, today's updates:
      some new braces to stiffen things up a bit:




      the battery box with a battery in it:

      the last bit of bracketry to hold the dash in place:

      corbeau seat bucket braces in and almost done:

      driver door cut out:

    11. 12-16-2009 04:49 AM #111
      Is there a reason you moved the battery to that particular location?

      space limitations, cleanliness, and coolness.

      all my mk1s have had carpet. it's the sound deadening that gets the boot. as for the backseat, i wanted to keep them OE cuz i've blown my stones for years at the prospect of running matching tweed front buckets.
      kinda like that rat bastard sandor.

      at some point, that is the plan.
      it's also the plan to run a full haldex system from a TT, cage, some kind of 4- or 6-piston front brake upgrade, etc., but you know those aren't going to happen anytime soon either...

      don't think i'll paint it anytime soon. rat look paint quality means i can park anywhere, and people will give me room.
      sweet paintjob = 48 hours of perfection till some douche opens their door into it...

      It seems the battery would be better on the opposite side for weight distribution. It's on the same side as the driver.

      true, but the fuel pump assembly is already set up there.
      in time, i'll rock a deka or something similar. this just happens to be the perfect size for the big battery that came in the cars in the first place.
      as for weight distribution, i think i'm going to have a ton of things working against me. namely the height of the car. have you seen the angle of my control arms?
      hopefully i can make up for some of the cars' deficiencies with a heavier right foot...

      This build is dope!
      Aren't you supposed to run a dry cell inside the passenger cabin? I might be wrong, but I thought these guys need to vent to atmosphere.

      you probably do. as i said tho, i'll be running a deka battery at some point, so the added weight and death fumes won't be that much of a concern.
