I want to see more updated on the car Lewy!! :)

So I've been doing some research for my audi mods and been thinking hard on my wish list for cabs new look. This is going to be long term project people, but this is my list of goodies for the car.
 
-  Take car completely apart and check all body work, inside and outside, I want to make sure the shell is 100% rust free and do some mod's
-  Take off clipper kit and go small bumpers, looking into custom one off piece bumpers
-  New engine - G60-16v or 20V (easier to go 20v route in US) \
-  Clean smooth engine bay.
-  Upgrade brakes - Pedal Box
-  Electric power steering (Corsa steering set-up)
-  Refurb interior, thinking about going old skool BMW dashboard, but I love the mk1 dashboard so much, might just custom that a bit! (still thinking on this one!)
-  New wheels
-  New suspension - researching on air ride for the audi, I'm really wanting air ride for the cab too now, might be able to get a good idea buying 2 of everything!!

I'm doing alot of research at the moment on engine conversions and air ride, so if you have any good links on engine conversions and air ride, let me know please.

Feels good to be mod'ing the cab again.

Well I've been busy currently on holiday in UK and France, and managed to go to the mk1 AMG Show last weekend :) loved it. I so want to buy more mk1's and send over to the USA with me.

You can view AMG pictures at - http://www.vwgolfmk1.org.uk/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=70

I managed to start going through my load of spares I've had at my parents garage and I'm amazed at what I've found and forgot about, so am now sorting out parts to keep and what to sell on forums/e*ay!

When I get back to the USA, start to clear out the house garage and start really getting to work on the car. I promise pictures :)

Been working on brakes system on mk1 and used the following pages, thought would be useful for other :)

In short the rear brakes locked up, so taking everything off for complete refurb.

The BLACK SOY Cabriolet is now back in the UK and I will be putting this up for sale in November timeframe. I will post full details here and in the FOR SALE Mk1 section.

I don't really want to sell it but I have too many other commitments and some of the toys have to go.

Well its time for me to clean out my mk1 spare parts, I have a complete garage full of mk1 parts. I am going to be back in the UK in October, if you want a mk1 part, PM me and I will reply with details. Too much to list out, I have used (complete mk1 golf gti broken into parts, less main shell itself and new parts)
