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!
It’s time for a summer sale, if you are thinking about a mk4 motor swap for your mk1, we are offering 20 percent off your wiring harness work or ecu tuning when you purchase an integration kit from us. This offer is good until around mid August. Purchase of the integration kit must be between July 10 and August 15, your harness can be scheduled up to a month after that.
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.
OFF TO PAINT!!
More updates coming soon! Stay Tuned!
Red panels —- Eurohatch (no more problems with the NA license tub) not pictured are the red fenders!!
Looks alot like a part of a discarded “Golden Arches” campain right now.. Needs those other two colors..
Blue panels came from the paint shop next!!
Blue parts looked amazing in the sun, they should have used Chagall blue on more of the VAG line. This harlequin is really coming together..
Three Of four colors completed now!!
Green Parts have arrived!!! Now we have all four colors! We cant/wont hang the green panels until we are done sorting out the wiring harness in the drivers floor panel..
next up motor assembly and painting of the parts for the driveline..
They are here, laser cut, plated and ready for your swap. Includes a boss for our eurovan cable conversion.
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..
