      Amazing work! I plan on doing this(Mid engine RWD) someday to a Scirocco. I am interested in how you are blocking off the front Cv Axle holes in the Spindle?

      Great work!

      Groovy! That is what I was thinking about doing. So you just lop off the rest and tighten the Wheel bolt on the out side of the wheel?

      Simple but effective.

      Yep. And I know shipping can be ridiculous. Best bet on that front is to try and organize some sort of group buy or hook up with a company that does international shipping regularly (like Newton in the U.K. for example).

      Maybe hit up Andy (polov8 on here); he has stuff shipped across the Atlantic from time to time and is familiar with the best way to do it. He is in the U.K. as well, but I'm sure he could offer some pointers for you.

      That is a gorgeous project you have going; I've been following it from the start. I'm curious as to the suspension set-up you end up with after the swap is completed, just sorting the spring rates and shock rebound damping will be wildly different compared to a "normal" front engine/drive set-up would be.


      EDIT: Reading comprehension > me...I read Eurosport, not Eurospecsport.

      So assuming that is you in the last pic, I have to ask what you do for a living. That's either a serious suit you are wearing or a brilliant distraction.
