Hey do you have wheels on the car yet? Curious to see what size wheel/tire combo you used and height you set your coilovers too. i too am filling the bumper holes but going above and beyond on mine. Love watchin the build. Comin out sweet
Looks good! Make sure you don't get too paint happy! I would make sure to sand the mating edges where your mount bracket and starter will make contact! Don't forget the concept of grounding electrical components! I can foresee a beautiful car getting put together and the starter not doing a damn thing the first time you go to crank it lol but so far, so good! Is that the stock close ratio tranny?
I ask about the ratio because if you want to swap your 5th gear, now would be the time to do it! It is easy to swap while the tranny is in the car with mk2...but the mk1 frame hangs over the 5th housing. I only recommend it because you could replace the TO bearing at the same time without having to chisel off that end cap and funk up your purdy paintjob! You could kill too birds with one stone and end up with lower freeway RPMs. Just a thought while it is out. Lots of people like that 5th gear but I think the high RPMs can get old when you just wanna cruise with the top down
Keep it up! I want to see how the tops of those frame rails turned out after you shaved them! I wanna see that split welded up smooth! That gap makes me cringe every time! My fender bender that just F$*&^% up my crabbit might buy me a welder to I can do my own bodywork too.
"By $2000 dollars in damage you mean go to a junkyard, buy a welder, a new compressor and keep the change...right"
You have had me so inspired with your ambition!
that means a lot buddy, thanks
Yeah, i saw your car it hurts me every time i see one get ****ed up by someone not paying attention. but hey, its a chance to learn a few things. what ever you do stay away from aftermarket fenders, they are a BITC* to make fit right. i spent at least 2 weeks cutting and cursing at mine to make them look half decent.
