I will have a answer in the next couple weeks. I just got confirmation that my tranny shipped from Shep yesterday. Game time.

Hey brother, that's a really motivating progression of a build you have. I'm taking the slow road as well and really like your plan. Is there anything you would have done differently?

Yeah I am on my 4th homemade splitter. First I used Birch (wood) then moved to an aluminum (foam in the middle) one. It attaches to the 3- 14mm bolts that holds the small tie bar underneath. 2 attachment points in front wheel well and 2 attachments on bumper beam. I will have to get some pics up later. I took me a full day to create pretty simple IMO

Thanks man. My car has really progressed slowly. I learned to drive the car in stock form to limit than I found the cars weaknesses and went from there. I wish I would have bought an RS and not a MR to start with....

I am pretty stoked finally having a nice cage. One of my good buddies built it and it came out great IMO. I can't wait to see how rigid the car is now.



On to the pics. This past week I have been slowly working on the interior. I have been removing unnecessary wires, full interior paint job, roll cage an so on. What a PITA the interior has been never again (so I say)

Yep good ol rattle can. I was thinking about using a sprayer but in my situation spray paint works just fine. So far 4 cans worth.
