      Hope so too man. I've put all on hold till I get him back. Spoke to Gaz suspension an there are willing to make some custom rare shocks for the build at a very good price so I should get that killer stance I been looking for as suppose to the Amy Winehouse effect I've got going on at the mo.



      Killer Mk1 stance (this is not my Wide Boy just looking for this kinda stance)


      Mk2 stance


      The Amy Winehouse effect (High as a mother****) but not for much longer


      Anyone looking for more info on Gaz pls see the link below.

      Yeah the Gaz guys are a good bunch I spoke to them at the Autosport show a couple of weeks ago about making me some custom suspension for my Corrado V8

      Maaaan, disappointingly still nothing at this time. I got my rad back the other day. (pix to follow). My fuel tank needs braising but I'm not jumping to do that as the I'm not sure if the position of the Haldex is gonna change where the tank will need to go. GRRRRRRR!!! Frustrating but out of my hands at this time. I should know more tomorrow, hopefully.

      Thanks for looking all the same. The encouragement is appreciated.

      It's a good suggestion, but I kinda like the idea of the thin metal box that contain the highly flammable liquid to stay outside the car rather than at the back of my neck if you know what I mean. So fingers crossed I'll be able to keep the modified tank.

      Would you believe the cheek!!! some company has lifted pix from my thread and are using them to sell manifolds.

      They didn't even bother to edit out my pineapple juice carton. These guys are 'taking the piss' as we say here in England.







      Any advice on how to deal with these mo'fo'?

    12. 02-03-2011 02:21 PM #152
      Call them and complain?
      Have someone write a cease and desist letter that sounds real?
      Kill them?

      Cheeky buggers! Even putting their own watermark on them!

      I would email them and politely ask them to stop using your pics.

      If that doesn't work then its time to start hunting for them on forums and making their business difficult. Hopefully they will respond to option 1...

      Unfortunately if you didn't watermark them in the first place there's very little you can do to stop them (short of expensive legal shenanigans, which really isn't worth it).

      You never know though, if they lifted them from this thread in the first place then they may well read that you are unimpressed and do the honourable thing and remove them. In which case hello to them and well done for doing the right thing

      Why not uses syncro and coverts it to Haldex via Dutchbulid.com? It's easier, cheaper, and can handle the power...

      Good suggestions, thanks man. I'm gonna give them a call and see what cheeky response I get. I'll keep you posted.

      Are you talking about, the axle itself? I looked into that, but having it fabricated will give the same results and also a bit cheaper. One thing, it would have been faster tho, considering the present set backs.

      Did you get a response from those monkeys that took your piktshars?
      and did you solve your issue?

      Thanks for looking man. Called up the company in question and the manager said he'd take them down but wanted me to send him an e-mail tell him what I want as compensation and he'd work something out. So I'm gonna look into that and see what the resolution will be.

      I'll keep you updated.

      So things have slowed down considerably and I might have a couple of months to wait until I can get the back axle sorted. Not great, but not the end of the world. As a result I have been looking into a few other options just in case.

      Option 1

      Go the Ikea route and get a flat pack Syncro to Haldex DIY conversion kit from Dutchbuild, then have it welded in place. Tricky, but possible.


      Syncro to Haldex DIY conversion kit from Dutchbuild

      Dredward suggested I send my old axle to Dutchbuild and have the conversion done for me but sounds quite expensive and would prefer to have the car within driving distance so I can keep an eye on the progress.

      Here are a few pix of the Dutchbuild completed article compared to the the standard syncro axle.

















      If you wanna see more pix check out the link below.

      http://www.dutchbuild.com/index.php?...id=102&lang=en


      Option 2

      I could get the car back get the Emerald ECU wired up and have it running as a two wheel drive for the moment. I'd have to get the radiator in place and finish off the plumbing work. I would also have to get the petrol tank braised and mounted in place. I would however run the risk of having to move it around or even relocating it if the axle takes up more space than I bargained for. Not good.

      Gonna read up on this axle conversion thing and see if it's a viable option.

    23. 02-10-2011 11:10 AM #163
      Tough decision.
      Id probably get it 2WD for this year and when next winter comes dive into the rear end.

      I think I'm gonna have to do that.

    25. 02-15-2011 05:54 AM #165
      So it looks like I will be going with option 2. I was looking forward to having a go at welding the Dutchbuild kit in place but it might be more trouble than its worth seeing as the original cradle has been already cut away.

      In addition, not to take anything away from the Dutchbuild kit, but I think seeing what another engineering firm comes up with in terms of a back axle cradle for the haldex can't be a bad thing. Who know, there could be a much more user friendly way of doing this. It won't hurt to see what Greg comes up with.

      I should be getting the car back next week all being well, so I'll be back on it in a couple of weeks. I'll get it all wired up and running, but not mapped.

      In a couple months Greg will pick the car back up and get the axle and prop shaft in place. Hopeful I can get the car running before the summer.

      Why not raise the strut towers in the rear? A bit more work, but might be worth it to maintain travel while still achieving the desired ride height and not having to dick around with mismatched parts and shockvalving/spring rates.

      Sorry for the delayed reply.

      I want interior of the car to look as original as possible so I'd rather get modified struts. Thanks for the advice tho. It is worth considering.

      Yep! here you go.

    31. 06-17-2011 08:07 AM #171
      Well, it's been a labour of love, and unfortunately not much has happened since I last updated this.

      It'll looks like the recession has taken it's toll on this build as well everything. The company that was putting together my back axle has gone out of business. So I've been waiting to get car and associated parts returned to me. I'm hopefully that the car is in good hands tho so i'm not worried to much about it.

      I'm told the company might me starting anew and they'll be finishing the back axle soon. I can only wait and see what happens.

      Thanks for looking.

      I'm sorry to hear that you (and all of us who follow this thread) have to suffer because of the recession. I hope that your build gets back on track as soon as possible!

      I hear you. Time are hard but VW is a religion. We'll find way to thrive regardless.

      Thanks for the encouragement, it means a lot.
