    Now here is some picture of the car at Dubshed.. really enjoyed meeting everyone there and have to say thanks for everyone helping me to get it to this point..

    The last week 2 weeks coming up to the show I really worked all the hours I could and was up to 2am-3am and back up for work in the morning.. then I had a test with Tyco in England so I left my dad a job that day with the wheel… Have to say he did a great job.. And on the last night it was a late one but this was the car as ready as I could have it…

    Now the engine was in and all fitting how I wanted I had a mk5 induction kit for the R32 to modify for my own car… I started by mounting the front intake tunnel where I wanted it and working from there.. This is how it all looks now

    After this I did a drawing and got some brackets made for the front calipers to fit. Also went for some wheel spacers as there are a little close to the wheels

    Next I put the engine back in and test fitting the new rad that I got made for the job with front facing fans to give me a little more space in the engine bay. Also I got it made with a pressure cap so I could lose the water bottle. Now the car was starting to come around with very little time but putting the engine in and running before I got the car sprayed is really paying off now.

    When I was waiting on the rest of the parts to be sprayed I had to keep moving so I completed the rear of the car in sound deadening. Hoping this will make the car nice and quit inside. Turned out just as I wanted with not much extra weight

    Next was the last batch of parts to be sprayed for the engine and drive train. As it coming close to getting the power plant back home… also went for some mk4 rear calipers and got them sprayed to match the front.

    This Disc set up I went with for the 4 pot Rs3 calipers was the front seat cupra R’s and standard vr6 rears. I also got the rears coated and the fronts at a later date. now was the turn of the brake line… I am not a fan of the copper lines so all I could go for was full braided brake lines. The full car front to back So I went around the car and write a list of all the end’s and bends I would need to complete this huge takes… I got all the parts and fittings ordered and also got a lend of a swaging tool to do the end.. after some time it was worth all the effort.

    With the front end set up as I said before I was going with powerflex bushings so to finish that off I had some Fx Kongsports witch I had in the car before and only did under 200-300 miles. So I went for eibach anti roll bars and vibra technics engine mounts.

    Now it was time for Marty to spray all the rest of the engine and sub frame parts. I wanted these a gloss black and would be easer to look after. Also got new bearings in the vr6 hubs before spraying. Everything turned out so well This is how well the spraying worked out

    Now time to get this engine back into the car so first was to sand blast all the arms and mk3 subframe and powder coat everything and up date the bushings with new powerflex all round

    Now it was time to get the windows back into this car and keep moving as this show was coming up fast… To keep this car good we put down some protective coating where the clips are and where the water try and lay and some extra holes. And all new window rubbers

    This wee car turned out as good under body as it did on top..
