Refurbished the mk1 gti frontbrakes and placed them. Finally m12 studs! So the widened steelies are now mounted on the front as well.
The mk1 is pretty much done for the trip this summer. After the trip the engine swap will begin.

Haha, the roofbox you mean. Well that thing was such a winddrag that my 8v was going slower and slower up hill, had to downshift the thing. Didn't go faster then 140km/h... still pretty neat for a 27yr old engine.

@pictureshowman: me too, but the art was build on a shitty base... unfortunatly, that's what we found out when we where stripping the car. I have a photoalbum of the build and finished car at home, it's a lovely memory.

Back to the mk1, still slow progress. But have you ever seen one of these:

Is this a factory build or someone with special skills?

Amazing! Especially in fine condition like that!

The only other Mk.1 Swift convertible I've ever heard of was this one that was owned by the Vice President of General Motors in the USA...

Update time! I've installed a third brakelight, made a custom grillogo, scored a 4-1 exhaust manifold, and started removing the old engine.

Lucky it's not too structural there.

Are you equipped to repair, may cut it right out and call it a cold air intake?

It will be repaired, I might find some more rust.

I'm going to clean the whole engine bay. Battery in the back, windowswashfluid will go out (gonna use the pump in the back and hook it up to the front), etc.
Then the bay will get a fresh coat of paint and the gti engine can go in! :mrgreen:

Needs to be finished before july, because I'm going to SuzukiCamp Germany again!
