Few little jobs left to do, bleed the brakes, realign a few clips and re route the clutch cable.

MOT booked for Thursday morning  :-\

Few more pics:









List of jobs to do after wedding and honeymoon, pre-trackday. But I've got most of July to sort them  ;D

Drove it a short distance yesterday, shift tower has play in it, so will look at replacing it before the trackday. Have a vibration from the powertrain to chassis which I'll work out and tweak. Other than that, so far so good.

Cheers

Pete

Fresh MOT this morning, no advisories but always nice to get it up on a ramp and dig around underneath... and plan what to do next!

I can't make the Polo Show/Social thingy either unfortunately!

I'm sure the MOT man loved the fact that someone had such faith in the road-worthiness of their car that it arrived on a trailer...

I am curious about the driveshafts. How did you go about it? Custom, G40 or from some other model? You don't mention it at all. I already know that original G40 ones probably wouldn't take the power and snap.

It's described further back in the thread, they're bespoke, using a 100mm Mk2/3 Golf inner and a Mk1 GTi Outer  ;)

Alex - Yes at some point! I've been giving the paint some love tonight, it's fairly hanging!

Back from holiday, car made it to the wedding  ;D

Many horsepowers here (1812bhp) and many litres (18)



Updates to come soon- 02J so far holding up, hits the limiter in 5th fairly quickly (circa 135mph) have to do some tweaks before shakedown at Blyton Park on the 25th July.

Cheers
