      Yeah, you don't need a sway bar. Haven't had one in a long time in my mk4. TT/R32 spindle/LCA swap is a nice project though. Car handled much better after I did it.

      I dunno yet on the motor. After I'm done with the suspension and brakes then I will build up on the motor. Nothing too obnoxious though.

      Cool. Ya I plan on doing the same in mine. Want to get it handling and stopping better and eventually get about 250-300whp out of the thing. Lots of work to do yet though. Let me know if you ever need help with anything. Not too far from St. Paul.

      Cool man thanks. I'd for sure like to check out your Beetle. PM me sometime we can hang or some s#!t. It's looking like my Audi sold so I'm gonna have a good chunk of change to play with here soon. I'm thinking Apr or Revo and some exhaust to match up to the downpipe and a little growl I've got some EBC slotted rotors for the front but I need some rears now and SS lines.

      My build thread was posted long time ago.. It's under the knife now doing AWD and turbo kit. RSi OEM kit is ready to put on after it done.

      I will update the thread when I have gotten some free time.

      Looks good! Don't shave the fender lines, it's been done and they're very prone to cracking which looks terrible.

      I've never really liked the convertibles, but now I'm changing my mind. NIce!!! Oh and I agree don't shave the fenders. I looks kind weird.

      Well Mine is on hold for a little while. Got some family thing that take priority. As soon as there's some thing new I will post

      Thanx...I wont shave em now. I drive it everyday so it will crack if its prone to it. The trunk actually opens and far better than I expected. But its more of a rear glove box than trunk...lol

      Oh..the dash was easier the second time..
      Check this out tho..not mine...found it after I did mine...great info.

      Family issues have pushed any projects back on the car for now but I did address the front and rear badge issues. I did the factory blue and white on the front and I thought this was cute for the rear Well atleast the badges aren't fadded and gross looking.

      I sold mine ... hence no more build.

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      Looks good! What has all been done to it? What's with the shut off valve?

      Ha Ha, where do I start. She is a rebuilt 18t, with forged rods, baffled sump, peliquin LSD, new water and oil pumps, Franken F4h-t turbo, 386cc injectors, JBS exhaust mani, milltek full system to include
      sports cat, full R32 front brakes, 300mm ECS rears, Weitec coil overs, Whiteline ARBs front and back, Tyrolsport smic converted to a water/air charge cooler, with a meziere pump, and frozen boost rad and fan. RSI Cup body via VW Racing in the UK, and three sets of alloys, including a original set of RSI OZ 9" by 18", that's about it. One pic below from local show a few weeks ago


      Regards Lenny

      ps if you wish to see a full thread go to GTINI web site and look under the section ( general tuning )
      and you will see the build thread RSI Bug is on its way guys
      pppps and the shut off valve is just below an auto air vent, which vents off any air in the water/air system.
