Although you resolved your issue, maybe this will be helpful to someone. Best i could measure is 24-25cm from firewall to the end of the mc. So audi 80 b4 brake booster and audi 100 c3/passat b2 mc.Thank you, I appreciate that. My trouble now is that the diameter is larger on the Mk2 booster. I do not have an issue with the length anymore, with the Mk2 MC being shorter. The larger diameter is getting very close to the accelerator cable. I will find the cable and install that, and see if it's a problem or not.
I hate it when that happens! Ya, I really like the wagons. Maybe more rare than the coupe? Not sure. Never see any of them anymore. I really liked that car too. I may someday do something with it again.IDK if I mentioned it but the shot of your Daily Driver in your firt posting reminds me of my Dasher wagon that I sold in a fit of STUPIDITY..
Thank you for the encouragement.
I may have purchased one of the last things ever sold from Bry's second yard. An Mk2 hood. 😃 Man, I haven't heard anybody mention that place in years. Thanks for mentioning it. Lots of good memories from the original yard.👍Been working on this car for a little bit, So, I figured it was time to finally make a build thread.
Some of you may know me already. My name's Chris, and I'm a founding member of DOG (Dasher Owners Group).
The original one. That one evolved into a newer one, and I'm sorry to say I've just not been as active with it as I'd like to be. Life gets in the way, much like with my Dasher.
I've been working on this particular car since 1998. About 23 year as of this writing.
My car has seen a lot of changes from the original form, and a lot of changes from my original vision of what I wanted.
And it's seen a LOT of down time sitting in the garage for years at a time untouched.
Those days are over.
I'm very much back on this car, and I've had very good momentum in the last year.
This car's story started out with a part search for my first Dasher, also a 1976 3 door 4 speed. I was starting the teardown of my first one, shortly after someone decided to do a U-turn right next to me. The car was pretty banged up.
SO, off to the junkyard I went, looking for a fender, maybe a couple good doors, maybe the whole front end.
I stumbled on my current car, sitting there in all it's glory.
It's doors were good, had no rust in the rain gutters, was real straight, except for a ding in the fender.
Bryan Wilson of Bry's Auto Wrecking would sell me the two doors for $200, or, the whole car for $300.
I drove the car home, no exhaust and a brake caliper dangling from a coat hanger, and started over.
That was the only time I've ever driven this car, 23 years ago.
The only pic I took of this car before the teardown. Yes, the Dasher wagon next to it was my daily driver.
I loved both those places, but the first one was certainly the most fun.I may have purchased one of the last things ever sold from Bry's second yard. An Mk2 hood. 😃 Man, I haven't heard anybody mention that place in years. Thanks for mentioning it. Lots of good memories from the original yard.👍
