Today I finished modifying the tunnel to receive the Golf MK5 selector mechanism .
Started by cutting a bigger hole for the selector mechanism and drilling holes to get it fixed:




the small holes were made to remove the MK2 selector mechanism mounts




did some modifications on the tunnel to fit the MK5 selector mechanism




and here is how it came out:

Some progress was done these past days.
I totally redone the sub frame for the Golf MK5 dash. I newer posted pictures of the sub frame and the work done for it to be fitted because I didn't like how it was done :thumbdown:
So I started everything over again and here is how everything was done:

first of all I bought a new subframe




and the original Golf 5 holders that the sub frame is tighten to and cut them to fit







then more cutting




and then started making some pieces to weld on the chassis that would except the holders for the sub frame










after I welded the holders I cut the rest of the sub frame to fit between the pieces










took the sub frame to be welded and here are the results:







and...










after the sub frame was fitted next was the intake for the air conditioning




first I took a part of the air conditioning to be a little modified







and then everything could be welded




After all of these I had to redo the shifter because it had to move 2 sm back ( it was too close to the dash)

I'm almost finished with the roll cage and now planing on making a support to the suspension housing from the roll cage

Here are some pictures from the roll cage:







And here is the support to the suspension housing from the roll cage that I planed on doing
What do you think?

My compliments it looks great again! Also the support for the rollcage to the suspension housing looks good, this will compensate for the bends in the cage.

shouldn't the support go all the way to the housing though? welding it to the raintray won't do much imho.. the raintray is such flimsy material.

It will be going all the way to the housing but from the pictures you cant see
There is a place where the raintray and the housing come together and there I plan to weld the support

No it doesn't come in the way of the Haldex or the custom subframe part I just needed more space to work and in that space I plan on putting a special battery holder box that comes from a Golf R32 MK5.

Looks good, like the way you did with the engine / gearbox supports. Have you thought about the lower gearbox stabilizer?

I'm very curious about the result after painting.
