      thanks, dude. i see the vehicles in your info there. when you going to pull the engine out of that CC and put it in the back of that caddy?

    4. 05-15-2012 11:54 PM #459
      not a whole lot to update. i did manage to finish wiping down and vacuuming up the interior before hitting it with the flat black. i also ground away some corrosion here and there.

      hopefully tomorrow we can keep going with the cage construction...

      some before and after shots:

      that's cuz mk1 owners are royalty!

      mk4 owners become true dubbers when they buy a POS mk1 for $500, bleed all over it, dump $10K into it, only to have it worth $1200 when it comes time to sell. but no one will buy it, because they can buy another for $500.

      i didn't say we were smart.

      quick update. i'm too tired to think. cage is progressing. mk4 dash was nibbled up a bit and test fitted. gotta see if the underdash crossbar wants to live where the instrument cluster lives. otherwise, all is well in the world.

      Cage and welds look great! These things take some decent effort to fit right. Question if I may, why the "X" in the main hoop? Only one diagonal is really needed. Just wondering, otherwise, carry on! Excited to see more

      thanks! yeah, the cage needed a *lot* of fiddling with, and we even need to recut the driver side sill bar because it's not long enough.

      as for the "X", you're very likely correct about only needing 1 diagonal. even the guy that made up the cage for us (www.cscracing.com) said it wasn't necessary, but my fabricator likes triangles, and in his words, not having an "X" means that there's going to be a weak corner.

      my opinion of my fabricator's opinion is that he's always right when it comes to anything mechanical, so i agree with his opinion absolutely. personally, i think that it looks more complete with it. clearly, i'm all about aestehtics. check out that paint job! i shoulda called the car "patches"...

      going back to my fabricator, he also built this in the driveway in our other buddy's mk3 jetta:


      the mandate, as i recall, was to lay the body out on his 5x114mm wheels. slow and low, that's it.

      the car hasn't been touched in about a year because i'm an attention whore and pimp needs finishing, but it'll get some mclovin eventually.

      you can read up on it a bit in this thread: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ension-Project

      well, the motor is sort of in. the passenger side mount was pulled off the old motor and bolted up to the AMU motor. there's a jack under the tranny, and the ratchet strap is tilting everything forward.

      it's tight, but it fits. the steering rack and the flange are pretty close, but i think we can fiddle with positioning enough to get around that.

      the work/life balance is starting to move slightly back away from work, and a little more towards life, which means that some progress has been made on pimp. not a lot, but enough to get me pumped.







      i might be able to get out there this sunday and on monday to start cutting some steel.

      the rear diff needs to come up about an inch, so the remnants of the spare wheel well are getting chopped. once the diff is in place, we'll start figuring out what else needs removing.

      more progress updates as they happen.

      at the AIM sticker. Im a kart guy and I've got about 10 of those.

      Good to see more progress on this. Really curious to see how close the rack is to the driveshaft

      got that at some track event i did a few years ago. i just kept sticking them on the inside of the trunk. i'm considering covering the cage in them when it's done. we'll see.

      as for the rack, it's exactly where the propshaft flange is going to sit, so the rack is getting moved out of the way. details to pics to follow as they happen.

      I never seem to surf the MKI forum anymore but I stumbled upon this...

      Do you think you're actually going to get around not moving the steering rack? I've always seen them moved up so I'm curious what your plan of attack is.

      Great work BTW.

      I'm sure you thought of this but just wanted to mention. Make sure to align the prop shaft in the vertical orientation so it's close to a straight line elevation wise from the output on the angle drive to the rear diff. I ended up cutting a sight slot in my tunnel to get it right before mounting the front and rear, then finished off by grafting in the new raised tunnel. Then again I went the route of keeping the steering rack in place and raising the motor/trans/rear diff to meet my goals (see project thread in sig.) Excited to see your progress though. Mine is sitting in storage across the country Keep up the good work! If you need any thoughts or want to pass an idea by, please don't hesitate to ask/PM me. Happy to share my experience.

      the motor is exactly the height we need it to be, so moving the steering rack is the only option that we can see at the moment.

      i've read your thread and am really impressed with and inspired by everything you've done to it so far!

      i think that my fabricator has already figured out the angles that everything is going to be following. once the rack is out of the way, we can drop the motor back in, line up the rear diff, mount it, then modify the propshaft to fit. after that, suspension and steering.

      thanks for the offer! i'm sure i'll be messaging you now and again for thoughts and advice.

      Love your build so far. I've been planning my GTI to be surprisingly similar in spec and purpose to yours, so this is relevant to my interests.

      Also considering 4Motion down the line as well. Watching closely.
