Brackets looking good now and should work a treat. I see you had some left over key steel pieces from main bearing caps to use :idea:

fresh from the tig welders and ceramic coat .
The inlet mani has a different ceramic coat to draw the heat away , instead of drawing heat in like turbo mani.
see how long the e bay ss turbo mani will last with the ceramic coat .

full clutch kit for a sf413 engine to a sf416 gearbox conversion.
exedy cushion button kit and a light weight 3.5kg npc flywheel.
thankyou bewitched for putting me on to npc [QLD] for the flywheel. =D>
im thinking that dwm dave had something do with npc, as there is a part no, even for a gti to 1600 gearbox conversion.

back to rear coilovers,
the protlum coil overs are custom made for the gti with a offset top shock mount, so it fits into the shock tower without cutting and shutting,like ive seen on other rear coilover fits on the forum.
but there is still not much clearance in the tower when i jacked it up, so i use a jack in the tower tunnel hole and added heat to give more clearance.

Where are you mounting the remote cans? Will the remote banjo fitting hit the shock tunnel?

the rear shock tower is not engineered for coilovers. so i turned the ultra race 4 point brace , into a 8 point brace.
as for mounting it i only drilled two holes in the boot floor inline with the existing chassis holes and used rear seat belt mounts which are not used in a convertible
