I was bored.... more mk1 toe hooks made
ordered some Carbon fiber, for the dash, and interior pieces.
Got the GLi up on jacks painting the calipers, powdercoating the wheels (all valley powdercoat) and sending my axles to marty in florida and he is going to rebuild them for me. Pictures to come with that also.
I have a question, I have a EuroSport upper strut brace, Eurosport lower control arm brace, and a Autotech front sway bar, is that to much? should I loose the sway bar for better handling?
Little update, nothing serious, fixed my headlight switch, ordered a new one for 20.00 and swapped it out, and fixed some wiring that was split. Now my running lights work! No more getting pulled over
Changed the axle today because the boot was torn, and it was starting to vibrate a little, Warranty swap,
More carbon fiber work done by me to come, and brake line work.
Not really a update, got a new part in today Been trying to get my hands on one of these forever now, got it for 20.00 BAMMM!!!
I still need a RT Fender, RT Door, and Hood so let me know if you see any around in good condition.
I ordered a Polly Trans Mount from BFI so ill install that when it gets here
Some more problems with the rabbit, it likes to shut off at lights sometimes, I think I just need to tune it, not a big deal cause im going to swap the engine soon enough anyway
The steering has some play in it, so I need to get under it soon and check it out like 1/3 turn play, its annoying
I saw this on Top gear last night, they where doing a challenge and they where driving through cali in a taxi cab, and theres a nice 84 rabbit gti behind them, heres a picture
Ill add my GLi build to this Thread too. Two for one Special, just to show what Im up to.
So here it goes.
That Axle is a Raxle with a upgraded new longer Joint for slammed GLi's Marty hooked me up, and hopefully this takes care of all the vibration issues ive been happen
Powdercoat Wheels White
Its on 4 Jackstands right now downtown where im working on it, UNItronic is shipping my ECU back (STG 2 91 octane) Cant wait for that
More to come
Today Im going to finish changing the Oil, The drain plug was striped from the previous owner, Im going to install the driver side axle and then go give her a bath, May work on the GLi today too who knows, more to come in a few hours
