It certainly took more cutting than I expected. Soon I will post some pictures from what it looks underneath the dash.
I am watching this one!
Holey carp this is going to be one unique and fun ride when its said and done. Props to you for taking on a project of this size. I cant wait to see it finished and rolling arround.
Cheers to you

Well, good job on picking up an S2, wish I could get (and afford) one here in the states. But when you get back to the rallye, please do something different with those wheels, and no bigger than 16".... it is a MK2 after all. 18's are just too big, and all black wheels are very uninspiring, especially considering the scope of that project.
To sum up the wheels, you can do way, way better than that.
Definitely takes someone with determination and persistence! GL!

What is something you learned last year that you are going to do differently this year?
Hey, great build and a lot of space in your garage:-)
I have some Questions:
Did you get the MK5 Heating and Cockpit in without cutting on the body of the rallye right below the wind shield?-you had to make a hole för the A/C lines in the middle of the firewall...thats clear, but what about holes for the loom and where are you gonna place the abs? right behind the engine mount like in the MK5. You have the MK dash console mounted. Are you going to yuse the polo servo steering or a mk2/3 Servo or maybe something totally different? Some photos would be really nice.
There is a lot of cutting involved in the fitting of the MK5 heating, and yes you have to cut out some space from the wind shield right below the ending of the wind screen here I will give you a link to some pictures of how some guy did it to his Golf MK2 in Germany.
I did a bit more cutting then him but you will see when I'm ready to show you. everything is a mess so first to clear it up and then will take some pictures. The wiring holes, well they will be done as on the MK5 and the ABS will be done as this guy on the link I gave you. As for the servo steering I'm still thinking of how to use the electric motor and the servo from the MK5, and if that doesn't work then it will be the Polo servo steering and pump.
Why not using a electric power steering like one from a vauxhall(Opel) Corsa.
Like the one in this link:
Today some parts (of the many that I ordered) arrived so here they are:
The front disc 323x28 punched from Seat leon Cupra
and here they are with the BREMBO's
OMP Competition Belt 3", 4 fastening points x2
and more to come

Well nothing much is done to the car because I'm still waiting for the parts. I bought front Control arms from a Golf 3 VR6 so I'll be ordering a MK3 VR6 sway bar from NEUSPEED. I'm still waiting for a mail about the shipping quote to mu country
the powerflex for the front axle is the only thing that came
I also ordered adapters for the brembo and been waiting for them for a month. They newer came, so I email ed the firm that I bought the adapters from and they told me that they haven't sent them yet because they are inserting some new features on them
In the mean time I will be painting the complete front Axle with the control arms
