I don't change my master cilinder because it will make no difference because the cilinders of the callipers are the same, and my Audi already has brake servo..


well, I made it fit with mk1 legs, caliper carriers for mk1 golf with VWII calipers and the calipers.. but I will give your version a try if i do not have the parts for my one.

I also use the original master cylinder and brake servo on my derby.. works perfectly.

yes, I think they are, but I am mounting VWII calippers anyhow. the smaller brakes will get overheated on track. Yes I liked einhoven got drunk, allthough all the bars closed at 10 in the evening. I work as a bartender and planned on having a drink, but none of the bartenders there could mix a longdrink. You guys have shitty bartenders otherwise I liked it a lot

I think you went to a different Eindhoven than me ....

The vw2 calipers were on a polo g40 so they do fit easily, but the calliper carriers for a g40 are different, they have an extra bracket which causes 13" rims to fit very hard...

I know if you have the right offset on the rims, 13" fits I have got a shit load of parts, so I'll just try different combinations til i find one that seem ok

Nice car for 120 euros. Nice colour. And I like the interior of the car! Very sweet!

The roof, is that original?

shame that they cut the roof out, but a good excuse to make a ragtop polo!
