      are you planning on bracing the rear subframe into the cage?
      haldex controller? am i getting ahead of myself here?

      keep it up, i was hoping to be the only awd jetta coupe, but its ok. you are in canada and you have a head start so i can learn from your trials and tribulations

      we haven't figured out what we're doing yet as far as mounting the engine/tranny. we boxed in the frame rails to allow the mk4 mounts, engine and O2J to be used, so i expect that it will be a matter of hanging the motor/tranny off the passenger side, holding all of it where we want it, then welding up some brackets that will bolt to the tranny and tranny mount. sorta kinda basically.

      the cage will be tied into the rear subframe bracing, yes. we're using square tubing (don't recall dimensions at the moment), and we'll be making brackets for the rear diffs' subframe to bolt up to. decisions have yet to be made, but i'm thinking that i want to remove the rear seat upright and deck, and place the fuel cell there. this way, it can stay within the cage, and still low to the ground.

      haldex controller would be nice, yes. there's a couple other options out of europe that i've seen, but i think that getting used to the haldex in a mk1 will be enough to keep me busy for awhile. i literally think that i will need to learn how to drive all over again.

      it's good to hear about other people doing AWD conversions. it's the logical progression for the species.

      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...

      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
