Alright So this thing has been in the works for a while now. Between moving, moving for work, going away to be trained for work, and having no money at any given time inbetween progress has been slow.
I have gone through about three different engine managments since this all started and finally settled on one I like. I have 034 in both my projects, the audi and this one. 034 Ic and IIc are pretty easy to tune and use and have a lot of support unlike the megasquirt and other systems I used.
The final goal for this car is hopefully going to be syncro, and I have been trying to source some passat parts in canada since I live so close now. but first... buttoning up the other stuff.
Right now the car is at paint and has been since a month and a half ago. It was supposed to be in and done weeks ago but not so much. Should be pretty nice once it finally is finished though. Front and rear fenders are getting stretched, and its going to be Europa Blue.
I picked up some sweet BBS RF Design 5000's for it. Already ordered two inch lips and going to be getting some one inch for the front. I was looking around and was debating what to do for bolts, and came to the conclusion im going to experiment. I want to Copper electroplate pretty much everything. wheel bolts, intake manifold, valve cover, alternator. The engine bay is shaved and in truck beliner so it should contrast well and Go nice with the Europa blue.
Here is a previous thread of the work done to the body. Spent some time on a rotisserie being cleaned up and seam welded.
