S&P Mk1 Fan Shrouds

A custom radiator like OURS needs a custom shroud, well now we have one.  These aluminum shrouds are designed to be used with our radiators, they can also be fitted to a stock mk1 or mk2 radiator with minimal user modification.

 

We are using a high quality, well balanced 10″ 1650 CFM fan.  The fans can be purchased separately HERE.

Finishes for the shrouds will include, polished or raw aluminum, for an extra fee we can have them powder coated.  We will be offering an option as a complete cooling package with our radiators, already wired with a relay and temp sensor all you will need to do is hook up a labeled power and ground, plumb the coolant lines and you’re running cooler than before!  Check out the shrouds in our store NOW!

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

MK1 02J Transmission Mounts Are Here!!

They are here, laser cut, plated and ready for your swap. Includes a boss for our eurovan cable conversion.

 

mk1 02j mounts includes cable boss for eurovan cable clutch kit
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also arrived, another shipment of our mk1 02a/j shift linkage kits

These give you a great alternative to trying to fit the cumbersome cable box into your mk1.  No cutting or welding required, you keep the stock linkage in the tunnel.  No console modification, no drilling holes in your firewall or dealing with pinched cables from the very sharp firewall bend on the mk1 cars. Shortens the throw over the cable setup..

Projects for customers we have been working on

Over the past couple months we have finished a few projects you may be interested in.

 

1983 Rabbit GTI o VR6 Swap

We took a tired 1983 GTI and added 1.5″ of steel to the rear arches and 1″ to the fronts, had it painted factory black, and stuffed a VR6 into it..

 

DC 016 DC 015 DC 014 DC 018 DC 017

 

 

 

An early westy front end was cloned from parts we had and the existing core support.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stewart Warner gauges set into a mk2 dash panel lets the owner know what is going on under the hood.

 

 

 

 

 

1990 Jetta Coupe

We rescued this coupe with a blown headgasket on its VR6 swap.  After looking the car over we decided it needed a complete redo.
