here's where i'm at right now, need to clean and paint the engine bay;



fitted wheel and gti arches:





axle really needs to move back, but that's easy because of the leafsprings

pressed new Claus von Essen rubbers (shore 65-70) in the engine- and boxmounts

not much progress as i was tuning my bike with a new set of cams, carbs and exhaust..
I did order more stuff like a mechanical clutch and cable, late cabriolet long axle, 4 new cv joints, scirocco 16v brake cilinder

Still doubting which wideband lambda controller i should choose, Innovate, Techedge or Zeitronix..

And i still haven't chosen a colour. I need too, cause i need to paint the engine bay and am probably using Sikkens Yacht Paint, but they're limited to 16 colours and i need to go see them in real life

O yeah, and i need a new right rear light because Alain's neighbor accidently smashed it with his trailer

towed the car with Alain to my own garage yesterday. Unfortunately the motorchain slipped off the forkliftspoon and broke the oil sump
luckily nothing else got damaged, but these alu sumps are expensive!

That sucks, but at least it's an easy fix.

i did some research and found out Seat Ibiza and Cordoba Cupra's with ABF motors use the same steel pans all early VW bigblocks use
they only hold 0,5L less oil but i'll keep an eye on my oil temp anyway

price difference of 160 euros makes it worth a try

So that makes it not only an easy fix but also an affordable one.
