Golf mk2 R36

Recommended Posts

Because I want hold the mk2 shape and inside but with an better engine and axles etc, I have find an mk2 from 1987 what have driven only 22.150km for starting with.

Because this car is like new, I don't want destroy the basic and will change only the necessary metalwork for the engine swap and make the choice for leave this FWD

There are a lot mixed feelings for what I'm doing with this car but it was an 1.6 with Automatic gearbox and is not my cup of thea but I like the outside a lot and make my choice for changing the technic and build a car what I can hold for a long time.

The car how I have buy:

Now it's time for the engine :) First I has an new R32 BUB engine but Someone want buy this and I have sold and buy an new R36 BWS back with a lot luck:

I have also make ready the pedal box with hydraulic clutch. I have make this a little stronger because they will crack sometimes when there is in an stronger clutch etc

I have also replace the mounting point from the Master Cylinder so the clutch will less heavy and drive better in my experience. I have bought both bepals new so they have new bushes inside and I also try to buy and build this car with much as possible new parts.

whoa! brand new R36 motor! you lucky lucky man!

 

What pedal assembly is that? i used a corrado one but was a cable accelerator.

This pedal assembly is from the mk2 G60 and will be the same as from the Corrado and do have the cable accelerator also, but this is not install because I have make an bracket for the new electric pedal what I need for the R36 engine and will I post later :)

Time for more pictures from this R36 project :) A lot people would see this car complete clean, but I will make a car for driven and not for show only. I try to find an midway between functional and what I like to see and is not easy.

Because I don't go for an complete cleaned engine room, I have make the choice for using the stock Coolant tank so I can use the stock R36 hoses. I could use the stock coolant tank bracket from the mk3 or mk2 G60, but I have make them by myself  :)

I have cut the big beam where is on the front mount normally for making more room for the belt and it will safe a lot weight.

The wheel-centers are E50 with 5x100 and I order them new from BBS because I don't like the adapters. For now I think that I will use the 0,5 outer rings in 17 but I don't have them yet.

There has been some really special builds on here over the years and this is definitely one of them. Makes me a little jealous I don't have access to the room and tools you have in order to build this

Wow! Amazing work so far mate, and such a clean base to start with. I've never seen that 'ice' method of cleaning either

I've not been on here for a couple of months but will be back to keep up with this thread now!
