new mk1 1.8t project updatet!!

hello boys and girls!
im new but was frequently visiting your amazing site.
respect to all of you who spend freetime and bucketloads of money in improving and modding vw cars to perfection!
you have been a big inspiration to me, now is it time to do it myself!!
im a mk1 fan since my first one in 96` and now i bought a nice and 100% rust free 80`modell that was waiting in a nice and warm garage the last 10 years, i just had to buy it! i came along a 1.8t engine gearbox combi from a audi tt and took it without thinking too long.
there is a lot of work to do so im gonna keep you updatet as soon as
can.firs some pics of the stuff that i allready bought and made for my last mk one that i lost to rust at the chassis you may get the idea behind that car!!

Re: new mk1 1.8t project (35i 2000)

your right!!
the bumper is a dietrich rs2 bumper.
its kinda expensive here in germany as well.
the doorhandels are audi 89 doorhandel from suspension-supply.de
about 55$ with transport... or even cheaper @ ebay
i finally found a intercooler that fits into the hole in the middle of the bumper
just figuring out a way to mount that thing and connect the tubes from the turbo and manifold

i maybe have to drill or cut out some holes for them
ill send som pics when i find a way. stay relaxed

Re: new mk1 1.8t project (otti)

ok i worked on the intercooler and mountet that little su&%$ with 2 solid steel stripes that i forged

now it fits ecsactly in the middle hole of the bumper.
i had to order the samco bends and it seems like i have to wait some more days?weeks? i dont know

today i broke down everything to blast and clean and paint,
so that i have something to do in the waitingtime...


the piping is going to be tricky but luckily im a pipe fitter
