Woops.. the angle grinder slipped!!
Back end removed ready to weld in the new engine mounting frame and subframe
Quick render of the new engine mounting solution with the very rough engine dummy in place - the U shaped pates are place holders for the sub-frame I am working on to hold the suspension
Here we have a few of the anodised alloy goodies for the buggy, a nice as these look they are going to be on the buggy for a reason, the oil filter in its standard position is going to be a pig to remove when I need to, so this kit will allow me to move the filter to are better location and also plumb a secondary oil cooler if I need it
Better view of those nice shiny alloy bits out of the packaging
Here is the new intercooler for the buggy, the standard VW one should fit in the front wing which isnt going to work and is quite small so this new one is going to be replacing it!
Another shot of the intercooler its a Toyosport one with 2.5" inlet and outlet
