The original project thread was lost in the move so a quick re-intro then just a lot of pictures to bring it up to date. 1981 Noisette Brown rhd storm w/tan leather interior minus drive train. Plan is a restoration in my home garage doing most of the work myself including a few surprises along the way. I've had the car now for a few years but just started messing with it. Glad I can share, hope you enjoy! Now to bring it up to speed... lots of pictures.
mk4 8v AEG bottom end as a base with a 20v head up top. Both will get attention.
11 pence, enough to by me a loaf of bread!
binned the crappy servo and was planning to do something like this.
The trans from my last build. 02J with a tdi 5th. These gears will be coming in handy later.
the "new to me" transmission(s) 4 cyl 02C
Some gearing comparisons.
So real quick what is going on. I have an R&P from the CCM VR6 that I picked up a long time ago. The gearing from the 02J EBQ was a bit too short especially with the smaller tire size compared to a mk4 (3.938) in the last car so the plan was to build up a gear set to work better such as the 3.389 from the CCM VR.

Yankin stuff off to bin.
built this body cart with some extra material kicking around.
And now the floating scirocco.
More to come as the project progresses.
