      my friend has some corrado seats i was going to buy. i can ask if he still wants to sell them for you... my seats where sitting outside for awhile and looked like shyt. but i "rug doctored" them and other cleaning shyt and scrubbed them and now they look pretty new and perfect. i guess i have to bend the bottoms to fit my foxs rails... tomorrow i really gotta finish this hood scoop....

      Damn son, looks good.

      Does the hood close over that intake? I know the 16v intake interferes with the hood and its the same style up and over.

      Do you think the cam gear would clear the hood without having to cut a hole? Running bike carbs would be dope.

      cam gear fine. cam cover, not so fine. I'm imagining most of us ditch it anyway. Might clear with e30 mounts, but uncertain.

      Such a great build great job man! And what a nice and clean Fox you got thats amazing. I always loved VW Fox coupes, their shape remind me of old Maserati Biturbo coupe haha. Any plans on lowering suspension and modding the engine?

      thank you. right now. i havent done too much. cleaned up and fixed the Corrado seats, and still slowly working on the hood scoop thing. the exedy clutch is going in as soon as i locate a fly wheel. lowering it in the spring. and since the motor will be getting pulled again. and i have a leaky cam seal. i might throw a 268 or 270 cam at it. and slowly aquiring turbo parts. so far i just have the turbo, some lines, and turbo manifold...

      after the black license plate piece was removed, it left 2 holes and some double side tape stuff... i used a hot knife to remove the tape (since nothing else worked) and screwed some spikes in the holes...(for now until body work)

      some final sanded with a wood block and a little more resin. and it should almost be good to bond on the hood. just unsure wether to keep the back closed or cut open (like a crowl induction hood) for heat venting....

      thank you. so much more to do. the aba swap is complete. but theres so much more "upgrades" to do. turbo, subb frame braces, strut braces, corrado seats, etc, etc, etc... i have plans to drop it in the spring. just not sure what route to go... soon is Exedy clutch install and new seals. i think the fox oil pick up is alot for the aba. my oil presure is more than good. the finish the ongoing hood scoop and corrado seats...

      resurfaced. but the side where the clutch doesnt grab is machined too. so i guess its a little lighter without having to rebalance it.


      and yes non stop work on the Fox lol. the engine was actualy going back together and back in tonight but... i forgot to order the rear main gasket but will arrive in the am.. every other seal and gasket i got was right. i got a TDI oil pan gasket because its rubber instead of the cork 1 the aba calls for. a little more $ but worth it. no cork gaskets! so ALL new seals front back top bottom! heh. and new 90 amp alternator the engine will be in tomorrow.

      engine was out and in. would have taken less than a day out. but forgot to order 1 seal and the belt was the wrong size. but NEW Exedy clutch, resurfaced flywheel, rear main seal, front main seal, crank shaft seal, TDI rubber oill pan gasket, valve cover gasket, cleaned everything, and the culprate of an oil leak was a leaky intermediate shaft seal. indexed new spark plugs! there prob more replaced that im missing. but noticed the front 2 bolts on the front engine mount where gone! the front motor mount has a stiffer mount than stock. but every small "issue" has been resolved. runs great. clutch feels good. nothing to complain about. need the rubber piece behind the gas pedal. (it fell apart) i dont know what it its called. so 750 miles at 1/3 throttle for break in.. ehhh... next up. prob Corrado seats finaly and welding up some strut bars and sub frame reenforcement. well heres some pics.
