wow great work
You may want to think about redoing this if your doing this for performance:
Put a nice thick plate behind it and weld it to the body of the car. It is currently welded to a piece that has a lot of flex to it, that bar is pretty much worthless beyond just looks.
Wow this is an awesome thread! All the best and looking forward to your finished work!
Thanks man, that's actually on my "To-Do List". I was planning on cutting the bar out, welding in nice big plates, then welding a new bar.
Believe it or not, that bar does do a fair amount already, especially keeping the rear end square. Pretty incredible. But that's part of the reason I wanna reinforce it, just to make sure it's all gunna stay in place.
got some stuff from UPS today...
^My brother helpin me sort through **** (kids these day... haha)
im still waiting on my front struts to get here, but it looks like i have my work cut out for me for the time being.

Finished welding my throttle body pipe and Diverter valve port.
We're at a slight hold, I blew the motor in my Corrado (daily), and will be swapping a VR into that over the next 24 hours.
Between selling the leathers out of the Passat, the good parts from the G60, and scrapping the Passat shell I should have no problem recovering the money i spent on the donor car.
It's like getting a free VR swap
