      Stop Please please tell me that is not brake line used for high pressure fuel? Ask windowlicker how that works. it will burst and fire will ensue.

      What?! Am I missing something here?

      Fuel pressure to the injectors ~ 100 psi

      Brake fluid pressure through regular brake lines ~ thousands of psi

      Why exactly will it burst?

    5. 01-14-2011 08:23 PM #55
      Yes but hose made for fuel and it's properetys is different then that for brakefluide. I do hope you are right. I love your project

      Oh! I see what you mean. No worries, only the hard steel lines are brake lines. The rubber is fuel injection hose rated for 180 psi. Thanks for the concern though, and the comment on the project

      Thank you Lido I hope for the same!!

      I had to put the project on hold because my work permit expired and I had to store the car and move away, but I will continue it! After spending a couple of months in montreal with the family I came to Brazil, where I'll stay until my actual immigration application goes through. Good opportunity to pick up a few parts!

      This is my latest acquisition



      One step closer to the dream!



      I just hope I resist the temptation of getting a Voyage here too, i see nice ones everywhere, but none of them go for less than a few grand here

      1965aaron, the link used to be this, but it went offline a while ago... Might still be able to access it cached through Google.

      Banned I may be able to... hit me up with what you need and I'll see if I can source it for you. I've done it a couple of times for people on here like a LSD for Southcross for his race dasher (that was flown in though, too heavy to ship) and a set of fogs for Edcon91.

      Anyway, these babies just showed up in the mail today

      Oh man I was hoping you wouldn't say that! Well this set I'll be bringing for my car, but if I still have space when I come back or can send through someone, and if I can find another used set that's good and inexpensive, could be done for around $200 - $250 shipped, I think.

      Mmm, vent windows...

      How much do polyurethane control arm and subframe bushings run down there?

      Glad to inspire Chris, thanks for the comments! I'll definitely make another trip to NYC in the next few years, my fiancée really wants to go and so do I, I'll definitely let you know! Trips with the Fox are awesome, enjoy the midwest, I went to Chicago with my Fox a few times, and it always behaved well

      j-boogie, so was I! It adds perfectly to the pop-up rear windows and sunroof

      doppelfaust - I will look into it and IM details, that's the kind of stuff that's not bad to ship

      You took the words right out of my mouth. The air flow in mine with the sunroof and rear pop-outs is nice and vents would just top it off!

      So, yesterday not only did the little Gol GTi 1:43 die cast miniatures come in the mail,





      But I also got something I've been waiting for a while; samples of the cloth used in the Recaro seats for the '89 Gti:





      I'll be trying to come close to the interior shown below. Keeping my carpet black, though.



      The plan is to find a set of recaros from another VW when I'm back in Canada, and then re-upholster them with the cloth I order, along with the back seat and door cards.

      The cloth is purchased by the meter, not original recaro cloth but close enough. The width of the rolls is 1,40m and for each length of a meter they are charging about $15 + shipping. How many meters do you guys think I'll need? I am thinking of ordering 7 meters of the solid and 4 meters of the striped one.

      Those seats are beautiful... Let me know how much fabric it takes so I can copy

      They are! I'll ask the company that sells it but just rough guessing, I believe that for making a full interior (door cards, front seats including their back, rear seats, rear side cards) it would take something like 7 meters of the solid cloth and 4 of the blue striped. I'll probably get an extra meter of each just in case actually, you never know when you're gonna mess something up and may take a looong tiime to get a hold of of this fabric again
