      Finally picking up the axles tomorrow morning from the machine shop - I've got new CV boots to put on them and should be good to go. Really hope to have the engine in by end of week!

      I finally had time to pickup my axles & re-drilled rotors from the machine shop.. I'm really happy with the work, the axles look great just need a quick black spray job.









      I'm still waiting on my parts from the powdercoater, 1 week has turned into over 3 and I'm getting pretty fed up.. will be finding someone else for future work!

      So nice.


      The carpet kit looks better than OEM! I like how it covers under the rear seat in one piece. I wonder if they are working on producing mk3 carpets.

      Thanks man, the carpet is molded to every piece of the car even the grommets and raised pieces on the floors. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for OEM+

      Parts picked up from powder, came out nice! Glad to get the steering rack mounts coated, the ugly bronze was killing me.









      Started to test fit the engine, the bolt for the VF Tranny mount is way too long so I'm going to pick a shorter one up today.

      Everything is fitting pretty nicely, only issue so far is the tensioner is hitting the frame rail because the cover sits out about an 1" further than stock, I will have to gently bend it in in that area to avoid contact.

      As I said in the original post they were test fit and not actually secured down in any way..2 of your circles are areas that would never be seen and are actually flat anyway

      Made a ton of progress today, engine is in an minus a small run in with the inner fender I think its alll good, nothing I can't fix with some touch up paint.

      Filled the transmission up with Redline and hooked up and aligned the shift cables for the 1st time, goes through gears perfectly and nice and tight with the Forge short-shifter. Awesome feeling to know its working properly and one major thing to check off the list

      Only issue I ran into today was that the axles I received with the 02m transmission are some weird hybrid, the inner CV's are what I expected but the outers are not from an 02m (threaded nut instead of axle bolt), I'm going to have to drop the money and buy 2 new 02m outer joints which sucks but at this point I'm just sick of staring at the car and want to drive it already
