      1/3 new alternator tensioner bracket came today from my buddy shane. this one is from a mk1, works much better than a mk2 bracket

      i need to clearance out a little more of the alternator then im going to space out the bracket and toss it in










      also bought, new antenna/base/wire, an early diesel console, golfball shift knob, and need door card speaker grills





      here is how it sits in the bay normally (with a/c, please ignore the black bar its obv not there in an OEM system







      this is how it sits after grinding and rotating it down into the bracket with the mk1 adjuster.

      Ya seriously, When you sell something it's not a "Take your time to ship" kind of deal. Just because it's a personal sale and not a business sale, people think that honesty and courtesy can just fly out the window. Lame

      You build that garage or is "new" to you?

      1/5 got the alternator in the car and the new belt on 25" belt. mk1 tension arm seems to work well. tomorrow im pulling it back out to put on a pulley from a non a/c car. the nut used as a spacer isnt quite long enough and it twists the belt a tiny bit





      rotated 180* down from original location

      i have a new tensioner arm for that alternator coming. custom made. i made the mk1 work, and i dont thing he got my PM that i didnt need it anymore. so im just going to swap it out for the one he made after i powder coat it. i plan on pulling tons of parts off the car and coating them black to prevent rust and for easy clean up. perks of having your own equipment

      coilovers came today...weeks after buying them (12/14) they showed up blown/seized/missing parts. seller gave me all kinds of crap telling me that its used and i should have expected it, and that i was lucky he sent me even one of the spanner wrenches. not to mention i was missing 6 other pieces and they were broken....

      1/12 - missing linkz shifter came in today im going to blast it tomorrow and powder coat gloss black. i put in my mk3 weighted rod mostly because i was curious as to how the difference felt. it looks like its a tiny bit shorter than the oem mk2 one, about 1/8" shorter?















      i think ill do the relay lever while im in there as well. or i may just wait until i order my bushing kit and then do it all at once?

      1/13 pulled the alternator to put the new powdered black alternator bracket in. also i powdered the short shifter black. i plan to use some lengths of square tubing so i can powder the heads of bolts (like the one on the short shifter bracket) so the will match. all this black is temporary for now. when i do the engine swap this summer ill be doing a completely different color pattern. i just want to protect the parts against rust. damage since i know i will be selling most parts later on. i suppose in the event that my engine swap does not go through til next year my engine bay will still look cleaner all black than rust covered. when my sand blaster gets here ill be blasting and painting all the larger parts (parts i cant fit in my oven)
