Matts 1981 VRirocco

Matt wanted to be able to jump in his Scirocco and drive it everyday, without worrying about the failing CIS system leaving him on the side of the road.   To overhaul the 1.8 and rebuild the CIS system was a realistic option, however after looking at the cost of the rebuild he realized he was well on his way to a later model motor swap.  Even better.  Better mileage from an 02 controlled fuel system, more power, easier to find parts. Win-win!

On to the evidence!!

How To Install Our Parts by VWDIESELNET

Ryan over at VWDIESEL.NET wanted to build a tdi swapped caddy using our parts.  He went way beyond the call of duty and made a set of videos documenting the various parts used, and how he installed them.  Check out the website for more awesome videos on keeping your VW on the road.  http://www.vwdiesel.net

24k – Sal’s Vr6 Swapped Mk2 Golf

Sal Robertson, co-owner of S&P Automotive, bought this car a little over a year ago. Having owned and built a lot of different VWs, he decided to let this one sit for a while whilst he decided ultimately what direction to go with the car.

sp720-130

To kick things off, Sal shipped the car off to his painter to have the car resprayed in the OEM LE1V Gold Metallic, thus beginning with the car’s moniker of 24K.

sp720-113

While the car was away a low mileage 24V VR6 and a 1995 2.0 GTI donor car were sourced. The 4 lug suspension, coilovers, Nuespeed F&R sways, 10.1” brakes for a base were reappropriated, and a host of new parts from axles, and brakes, down to the tie-rods and some hot cams were thrown in the mix.

sp720-106 sp720-105

After getting the car back, Sal went to town. Inside an awesome set of low bolster Recaros were placed in the front and matched to the OEM tweed on the rears and the door cards. The dash and plastics were re-dyed to the original dark brown, and the cluster was treated to some Autometer ES gauges to keep an eye on things under the hood.

sp720-108

The car presently rides on those pristine Ronal Turbos IIs and perfectly fitted Kumhos, but we don’t know for sure that those will be permanent…

Eurobumpers and e-code lights finish up the exterior of the car, keeping it simple and classic.

sp720-143

As far as entertainment, and the sound system… What better soundtrack could one have than a mildly massaged 2.8 24V VR exhaling through a 2.5” Borla exhaust? IMHO, none. Whilst idling, the car gently purrs with nary a loud rumble to clue you in on the work that has gone on; until you hit the pedal on the right, that is.

sp720-147

Some might call it too simple, saying that it needs some 16 by eleventy wheels, mad camber, and tires that look impossible to mount or drive on. But, this car… clean, classy, and 24K all the way.

But we can’t forget about Seth’s Jetta!!!
Another fine example of S&P Original goodness, when Seth saw this thing, he had to have it.

sp720-133

It wasn’t in its current state when he bought it from Sal & Perry, it took a little of Seth’s imagination and S&P’s elbow grease to fit the 12v vr6, complete with fully polished Schrick intake manifold.

Yea, those are common, just roll out to your local bone yard, they’re everywhere…
While Sal chose the old school feel with the golf, Seth felt that the original Recaro Trophies just werent quite what he was looking for and opted for front & rear Recaros from a Mk4 GLI.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all about keeping certain cars true to their vintage roots, but there’s a lot to be said about a slightly more modern, comfortable seat, that’ll hold you through the twisties.

img_8952

These days, low seems to be the only thing people think about when “building” a car. And though I’m a fan of all aspects of suspension and wheel fitment, I have to say, its quite relieving to come across enthusiasts these days who can build their cars and drive them, rather than garage queens and speed-bump dodgers.

Thanks for the opportunity to shoot your cars guys.

The rebuild of a 96 harlequin

We will be documenting (as we can) the rebuilding process of a 96 VW Golf Harlequin edition.  Full respray, updated driveline and a refreshed interior..   All chassis parts will be refreshed with new parts.

This is chassis number 101 of 264 produced in 96 only as a Volkswagen promotional vehicle.

 

Our friends at RossVW have a great write up and history of the harlequin model.  Check them out! http://www.rossvw.com/harlequin/

 

Back to Project VRlaquin

We received the car in less than a desirable state.  At one time it had been resprayed (poorly) yellow over its colored panels.  The joker seats were in rough shape, it had the usual mk3 rotten floor boards, a fallen door hinge and crushed rocker. vrlaquin6
