      Matt(Dbot) was telling me about this thread. I read it, picked up a six pack of hop slam and headed straight to the garage when I got home. Very inspiring. I love what you did with the rear flares.

      I have what is probably gonna be known as - fredybenderitis.

      I needed a windshield. Needed euro bumpers. So, I did what any sane rocco guy would do, just buy another one that includes spare parts.

      Loaded up in San Bernardino today! Should be here in 7-10

      haha, awesome!



      anyone know how much brake line is required to run all new hard lines? 25' seems a twang short, but 50' seems incredibly extensive. Definitely not gonna cut corners, but at $55/roll for the good stuff, I'd rather buy a 25' roll and, say, a 6' roll is that's all I'll need.

      Ordered 25' of fuel line, and I'm sure that will be plenty...unless I get crazy with the routing. All depends on hopslam consumption that day I reckon...

      What kind of brake line are you using?

      seems expensive

      Yeah, it is retarded expensive compared to some of the stuff I'm finding.

      It's Cunifer. Copper-nickel alloy, 17K burst/3.2K max working pressure, 0.028" wall thickness. Better safe than sorry...

      My brake line experience / consumption for my rebuild:
      I took a roll of 25' plus another 6-8 ft after that...
      If your putting discs in the back, I suggest you scrap the idea of running steel lines on the sides of the axle beam, and just use one SS braided line from the axle beam pivot point, all the way to the caliper; elliminating joints & flares: priceless

      haha...I did think about it, but finally settled on new rocco viper green. For sure this time. Maybe...no, definitely. Yes. Done. Order it tomorrow tom!



      snagged a couple more pics this evening while scrounging up parts to send to sciroccojim:






      Got NLS trans mounts ordered. Hydro clutch stuff in the works. Vintage rubber complete kit in the mail. Ellipsoids ordered (thanks PTF!). New striker pins ordered. Everything gathered up for plating ready to send out. And mk1rocco#2 will be here tomorrow with my euro bumpers, heckeblende, and spare windshield! Been quite an expensive week...

      Before you get color on it I have two last requests:

      1) Check how your keyboard shows what you type because you typed Black (didn't you ?), yet your post shows Green

      2) Please please tweak the passenger fender fitment. It's a bit too low, so the body lines aren't even from the front of the car to the back. Those lines define the look of a mk1 and the fix is easy and well worth it: tweak the A pillar bolt holes so the height of the fender can be perfected, and tighten those three bolts before installing the rest so the fender height doesn't shift while installing the other bolts.

      My Tiguan is black. Gotta have a diverse driveway

      Look at the second pic, there are no bolts in the fenders. I'm WAY too OCD to have funky lines.

      I see cars come through the dealership all the time, and can tell they've been whacked before they come in the door...all lines/gaps will be spot on, I assure you.
