need to update this thread:


It's been sitting in storage for the last year or so, however i've been gathering some parts to throw underneath.

Some bbs rx216 in 17"x7,5J et42, 20mm spacers, 195/40/17 kumho tyres:


Bought a G60 rear axle, had it sandblasted and powercoated:


Build it, everything you see here is brand spanking new:


fitted it:


just need to do some small things now and give it a final polish and coating, then it's done for the moment.

Ken Great Job on this rig! I am in the usa with a mk2 Jetta ASV swap an GLI interior.  I also have a partial GTD intercooler setup :P

I have a few questions:

1) looking for a Bonnett pad,  where can I get one and the mounts?  We didn't get them here in the USA and the intercooler doesn't seal well (high IATs)

2) Looking for one of those seat toledo skidplates,  Anyone know of where I can get one (another item not here in the usa!  I'm getting sick of cleaning the bay!

3) Do you have AC?  I noticed you have a deep pocket under dash tray on the passenger side?  It looks great, but I suspect it will not fit with my AC and power steering setup.

4) Anyone have any GTD parts they are looking to get rid off?  I'm in need of better shape plastics :p

Great Car Ken and keep me posted if you need any bits from stateside.

1) https://www.vwheritage.com/191863835a-under-bonnet-sound-proofing-mk2-golf-jetta that's one option, not OEM though.

2) bought mine on ebay, replica.

3) I don't have AC, I do have PAS. Don't think the deep pocket will work with AC.

4)I don't have any spares at the moment so sorry.

Thank you for the reply Ken.  Been looking for the parts but still no dice! By any chance would you be willing to sell the side and front badges?  or give up the vendor?  my GLI tdi jetta swap could use those here in the states ;)
