had a spare hour 2day so modifyed the from wheels,suspension, couldnt see point of useing mk4 subframe after some further thing,wishbones,to fit 5stud ,not my ideal choice of alloy but they will have to do at mo ,
sorted another homemade mody ,fit central and pimped lmao
trail fit the engine 2day ,as i reckon it will fit fine ,evern with the 6speed as i thought i was going to butcher the inner wings out ,,some things will be a bit tight but i aint going to worry about them ,,my home made turbo fitsand has lots of room ,still ill have re locat the extrenal wastegate
WISH ID not started it now lol ,found more probs 2day playing gess work ,with the engine,its either sump hits the floor or rocker cover hits the bonett, or wacks the old mk1 wishbones then transfor hits steering then my twating manifold wont fit ,so in all had a shit day lol,along with cutting driveshafts lol

ill get rack ripped of 2moz its going to be tight ,fitting inlet ,fan and rad in there and a incooler ,,,plus my dam manifold want fit ,so more chopping is needed lol
Amazing stuff you are doing there dude. As already mentioned - inspirational !
good old fashioned 'just make one' attitude !
so - to bore you with a tech'y question
when you make head spacers etc - how do you get the head sealed to the block ? or do you skim the spacer before fitting ?
stainless sheet is soft and flexible idea for any clyinder block and head ,differnert thickness differnert compression reducers ,once ready to fit,u buy a metal layed gasket ,remove the 2 small brass rivits and only use the outer layer top and bottom part ,then clean refit to the head and rebolts job done,,,i have spare ones if ur after doing one ,ive some for the 2.8 24v golf engine and some for the early mk3 2.8 vr6 engine,,,if i can sort a t5 in a bug ,i can sort this lol
