After deathing my old golf....thread here:  Clicky!!!  time to start again.....from the basics.
Went to Isle of wight to pick a shell up from Veedubdude off here for a bargain, with coilies, and front ARB.  Also picked up a shortened recess rear bumper aswell.

**THS intercooler (i already had), Forged IE rods, IE manual cambelt tensioner, Piper cams vernier pulley, New oil filter housing.
 
I got bored today and decided to whip a few brackets off that do nothing or arent needed in the plans for the bay.

Need to get rid of the seam sealer around the edges and the rest of the paint and can start welding bits in to cover up crap, start smoothing areas.

Nice choice of colour, darker cars are better for detailing!


Just noticed your conrods are out of their lubricated packaging, did yours not come ore-packaged or are they out of your old engine? Small end looks a little rough.

Just noticed your conrods are out of their lubricated packaging, did yours not come ore-packaged or are they out of your old engine? Small end looks a little rough.

They come sealed in packing.  The pic is straight out the box/packing.

Probably T04E boosties [:)]

Can I have them back pweeeseee?

 

 

And thanks to all of you that have Subscribed.

 

Highly tempted to get a one of these....

http://www.demon-twe...s-29kg-weight-2

or this

http://www.demon-twe...type=Multipoint

http://www.customcag...an&type=6 Point
That ones a bit cheaper

Set of nice bucket seats, flocked dash, small steering wheel, harnesses and painted inside of car.

 

Still sooooo unsure at minute.

i think they help stiffen up the body a bit, good for handling.
