    the swallow tail project has begun.......

    since my mk2 is finished i needed something to get me back into the garage.i have wanted amk1 2 dr for ages so i thought due to my other daily driver being involved in a meeting with a 4 wheel drive.so here goes i thought i would document this one a little

    and back already got out the welder and filled the badge holes soon to be gone the button just waiting on a solenoid

    next to go the aierial hole and the left hand side mirror, who needs it

    put my gti seats from my mk2 in cut down the rear post to sit lower about 2 inchs

    and this is the new profile of the rear wheels with the new spacers in an extra 20mm

    also picked up some chrome internal handles which i just put in to

    got hold of new some low springs yesterday(not low enough) for a steal so i cut 3 coils out of the rear and one out of the front as i couldnt stand that stilts look and damm does it make a difference through the corners ,it actually goes when you point it, took a few inchs out of the height at least it is good to be back on the ground.bought that weber off the golf loon and got to striping it down today and polishing and porting the manifold,will get some pics up soon. anyway here is the new stance got way lower to go but for a start. ohh yer the mk2 is being shot for vwma in the next couple of weeks



    toying with putting these on maybe polished i bought them for my missus mk4 but i like em

    Thought the Mk4 rims were 5 stud? Could be wrong... maybe it was a differnent offset or PCD....but I saw some on ebay a while ago and had them checked out before I bought. They wouldn't fit.

    theres trechory afoot! - clearly, you can see that the photo of the "shiny rims and shiny paint" the car is already on its guts alot more than the later images of the white one with a higher sit car.
    if your just niggling until you get a crazy backdrop style photo before you show us your final photo.. well... i wont do much.. but yeh.. STOP TEASING!!!

    Hey Rednut, DubstarMk2 has two golfs the show stealing Mk2 in the background and his White Mk1. The Mk2 is on display in another thread, I forget which one. I`ve seen the silver one a few times and its a beast.
