So I am posting my current projects to share what I am now doing with my golf after not driving it for a couple of years. The pictures do all the talking so I will add a brief description of what you are looking at!
This is what it looked like in it's prime. BBS reps and some camber shims I made up with a custom speaker enclosure which you cannot see.
Needed a new turbo setup to go faster so went with a precision 5858 with matching wastegate. Redoing IC piping, and making custom manifold to meet new turbo position.
Custom machined manifold flange I made on the mill
Purge line holes added
Decided I wanted 3 piece wheels but couldn't make a decision so I began preparing to split RPF1 to make into 3 piece to suit my plan for wide body steel fender flares
After splitting the wheels and drilling them to suit 40 hole lips/barrels
Of course I had to upgrade the brakes too, so I got some brembos from an EVO and make some custom adaptors to fit my car. I required a couple of prototypes to keep caliper close to the new R32 rotor (which I drilled and slotted for looks)
Very little clearance between calliper and inside of wheel face. Good enough though...
I made some custom center caps with o-ring to snap into the inner groove of wheel faces. I made add a personal logo or trademark. Still undecided
A pic of R32 rotors drilled and slotted. Add visual stimulation to overall wheel coolness factor
Pic of size of lip I will be running front and back (11'' wide in front with 6" lip and 13" wide in back with 7" lip)
These arent' actual lips but merely the back of the wheel after I split them on the lathe. They do however represent the approximate size of the lips/barrels I will be using.
This is a concept for buck development to make patterns and in turn make steel fenders for car
And here is just throwing some ideas around. The fenders will not be so sharp like that but more of a gradual curve coming from higher up.
Here are some pics of camber shims I machined for customers and friends. I make custom machined shims with toe correction any camber angle for mk1-mk4. They are good on alignment sheets so they are proven to run great.
These are -3
