Happy Xmas guys!,
Good news! The bumpers are on the way to NZ.
Big thanks to Alberto for pointing me in the right direction.
And Macvwnut for selling me the front...
Looking forward to finishing it off!
I will be doing some jobs on the MK1 in the mean time...

Yes it all led back to ebay but the timing was great!
I hadn't seen a bumper on ebay for 12 months and then 4 appeared!

I've been driving the Rallye around for 2 months now.
It's awesome! I'm only running a stock AGU with a chipped ECU
It has plenty of power for a daily.
Thanks to all those who helped!













My Mk1 has had lots of improvements and I'm going to the track this sunday.

It's just in primer. I wanted to road test it incase the fiberglass bubbles or cracks.
Paint will be next.

i think we can now officially declare volksforum the "insane rallye builds" forum. So much great stuff going on here lately.

Mk1 looks very nice aswell! What kind of BHP does the engine in the Rallye give you? Or hasn't it seen a dyno yet?

The rallye engine is a stock AGU with a superchip, downpipe and fmic
I haven't dyno'd but around the 180 mark???
The airbox in the mk1 was a piece of foam I pushed over the itb's cut out the holes and then I used cardboard tube to make the shape. wrapped in sign vinyl and then I just fiberglass'd over all of that and soaked it in water and picked out the card and foam;
pretty rough as It was all done in a hurry. I'm going to make a gucci carbon version next.
