Hey so i figured i would start a thread on my mk1, which now that the r32 is nearly built, I am turning my attention towards.
bought this one two years ago.
As some of you know i drove it for a while but since the thing was yellow sticker material i decided to retire it while i continued to collect parts, a hobby i have had for nearly 10 years now.
I have owned a number of parts cars, and have always wanted to make something different, interesting out of the a1 chassis.
At the moment I'm still throwing around ideas, but a front or mid engined rear wheel drive setup is on the cards.
I have not decided on powerplant but i think most of you know the kind of thing im into so we will see where this goes.
In my office i have fresh bushings for the whole car, new weitec coils on koni shocks, new seals everywhere, cleaned and mildly tinted windows, chrome wing mirrors, a perfect dash that will be trimmed in leather or alcantara, a bunch of stuff to fit straight into the refurbed chassis.
The following photos are old mainly, and i have ditched the vinyl and tartan idea for dry carbon, i have carbon fenders, hatch, bonnet, spats, euro bumpers in the mail. but hey i thought id post them up anyway, I will send the chassis off to the sandblaster pretty soon and the doors hatch and bonnet of to the paint shop soon.
Swapped in my wheel, and golfball shift knob.
Cool stuff though just came today
i also have got a hydraulic handbrake, and a dual master cylinder brake bias box, to run each end of the car seperately, mk3 stub axles and wilwood rear disc setup might give a hint to whats going on there are some clues in the photos too.
Subscribed . The R32 is going well Pedro I had the battery replaced that's what was causing the problem, as the battery needed replacing. I have always loved MK1's I was considering 1-2 months ago a project it may happen I just have to find a rust free shell.
