I thought it best I start a new thread, although allot of the parts I'm going to be using from my 5dr technically it is still another car. I'll also most likely be taking a slightly different direction on this one too (no promises though ;) )


For any one who hasn't seen what I was up to with the previous car, MonK-E's old GTI


Any way new car, new motivation, new ideas and what not

Take it easy..... don't over do it as you will end up with 2 cars that are half done

haha yeah, The other 5door tub is  free to any one who wants to collect it, ill just sell the other unwanted parts off 

 

I think I will just keep this one as a fast road/occasional track day car with a touch more focus on making it look nice. lol I might even keep the interior, though I haven't really fully decided that yet. Either way it'll handle well and go quick ;)

Cheers Chris. I give you a shout when im at that stage :Y:


Not much for making plans any more as they always seem to have a habit of changing. But I want to stick my AGU engine in and up grade it to run on later management. Obviously I'm going to stick all my nice parts on what I've taken off my old car.
If it's ready by apex I'll be there

Not much happening this weekend, unfortunately the Mrs is working all weekend so I'm on child minding duties. Still here's another pic of the car, it's already been lowered 30mm on b4 sport shocks and has 25mm rear spacers and 15mm front. Other than that it's pretty standard.
Obviously the suspension an wheels aren't staying on there as they are no match for kw v3s and TD pro race 3 wheels.

So glad this has finally ended up in your hands its always been more apealing to the eye without the extra doors,im quite surprised you havent put the wind deflectors on the blue golf yet though.

Yeah I'm rather pleased as its a nice free upgrade. so many things to do, its hard to figure out a plan of where to start. I think mechanically speaking ill start at the back and work my way forward  

 

blue golf is a 5door, they wont fit

I would start swapping the engine and suspension upgrades.... unless you want to seem weld or put a cage into it...

No seam welding on this one (takes far too much effort) and possibly no cage as I think I might keep the interior.

 

 

The engine needs at least a set of rods before it sees its new chassis.

 

which is why ill start at the back and work forward. I am still going to brace the rear beam as I've wanted to do that for quite some time and it gives me an excuse to give the beam a new coat of paint. Also will be fitting 256 rear callipers which I'm going to make my own stainless steel spacers for as I'm far to tight to pay for some ;)

Rods are the future. Tap that torque, and tap it hard.

Made a start on the rear beam today, just stripped it down and started cleaning it up for strengthening in a couple of places.

E02A2818-8826-46A3-8992-95F7B96AECB9_zps


Some people might remember my plan from earlier. I'll recap anyway.

I've spent a fair while researching the design of the rear beam and how it flexes. Which has brought me to the conclusion that the best way to modify it would be to copy the discontinued VWMS reinforcement plates that get welded between the stub axle mount and the beam pivot.
This design keeps the dynamic camber ability (the reason the beam pivots are at an angle on the mk4) without restricting it. But reduces unwanted toe deflection when cornering hard..

They used these only for one season but that was only due to homologation rules not really allowing this type of mod. I'm not going to be racing so obviously those rules do not apply to me

Hopefully start fabricating these tomorrow :)

just a note for you it could mean the wheel can hit the axle so make sure you have the right wheels before you start ;)

Plenty of clearance with 7"wide wheels and 15mm spacers. Won't actually need the spacers but I like to keep the track reasonably square front to rear ;)

Yeah this ones going to be a bit different. Still after performance based handling (obviously) and I'll still be taking it on track days now and again but I'll be pushing the boundaries of my abilities in other ways on this ;)

I think the mistake I made with the other car was taking it too far without good enough facilities to support the sort of work i was doing i.e. having a empty double garage to work in as welding outside sucks when the gas constantly gets blown away with wind.

Yeah I would like a 4 sided flame retardant canopy, I have a large gazebo but that wouldn't last 5min welding and grinding in it.


Made a good start on the beam today. As with all good fabrication you have to start with a bit of C.A.D.
So I made a template up and cut it out.

6032DB77-5A7C-47FD-A3A8-F74A3F3BAAC8_zps


Once again I may have gone OTT with the material. 3mm plate is a bit of a pita to bend in a vice but after a fair ammount of thrashing about i managed to get it in to shape. Then I proceeded to weld it on

Aye the rear axle looks well, i'm interested to see how understeery or oversteery it all turns out.

 

Good luck with the new build.

looks very good but you need to grind back a bit of the seem so you can put back the plastic cover that keeps stones away ;)

I'm not quite sure what you mean bud, not that I'm actually going to reuse them any way.

8FAACDAF-8667-4D79-B4ED-60FB41F19627_zps

If you mean the two little threaded stubs that hold the brake cable bracket, it doesn't matter about them as I run the cables at a slightly different angle/placement due to the side exit exhaust. Plus the plastic brake line clips are going as I'll be running full braided lines up to the chassis. No need to worry mate I have though this through ;)

sweet that was what i was on about but if you are running full braided lines you can route them differently.

Just need a new brush attachment so I can finish cleaning the rest of it up for a coat of paint
