Supercharged MK3 cabby

And so then I had this sitting on my driveway
then we did this a few pics during the build
I have this little box of tricks including a nice shiny new 9-10psi pulley
New seats mmmmmm very very comfy, and have got a plan to get rid of the white FK logo on the top too
Harnesses with padded supports, the only piece of non white or black on the car apart from the calipers !!
Old coily rings versus new !!
Better shot of the wheels, have been finished with a polishable top coat for extra shiny shiny
Engine is in, sounds amazing and that's without the charger on !
So I gave her a quick clean today, excuse the awful ride height this is at working height oh and its not fully built up yet which is why there isnt any headlights fogs etc !!
So it's obviously had a complete respray in VW Casablanca white, completely stripped the car and checked everything one front wing needed to be replaced and one small bit of rust which had to be cut out and welded at the rear apart from that really solid ! I have done/helped with all the work on the car apart from the final coat of paint and it has been bloody hard work at times taken almost 8 months to get it to this stage and I have learnt so so much but I have enjoyed every second of it
Cosmetic mods so far :-
Audi 80 door handles
rear numberplate recess smoothed
interior completely stripped of sound proofing etc for weight reduction
custom dash and interior center section
all interior plastics re-sprayed
custom seat frames
tinted headlights rear lights and indicators
works wheels powdercoated in gloss black
Performace mods so far :-
G60 gearbox internale
B&M short shift
312 front brake upgrade
stainless brake hoses
fully polybushed front subframe
new rear discs and pads
new adjusting and locking rings on all coilovers and fully refurbed
plus loads more ARB's strut braces etc etc etc !
Mods to do :-
Engine bay smoothing and re locating ancillaries
custom rear interior setup
probably loads more I have forgotten !! this will all be done by myself over winter for the car to be ready for Ultimate Dubs in march, fingers crossed the aim with the charger and the other engine mods is to acheive 300 bhp / tonne and the car will be mapped and sorted by Vince at Stealth Racing and will then get it corner weighted to see how far away I get !
