it was like i was playing "where's waldo." :lol:

by adding "fog lights" to "i got rid of the yellow" you could have have eliminated the
guessing game. =)

What's the brand of that flywheel? Is it also "euro-drive"?
I once bought a second hand flywheel that looks very similar to that one; with holes around the fasteners holes. But I have no idea on the brand. Apparently is one of the lightest available for the GTi.

Hah yea I know trust me its been brutal for me to wait this long to get it going... But now at least it will be ready for 2016 and I hope nothing breaks, I just want a smooth year, 2015 sucked, resulting in my swift taking last priority.
So the engine is in and running, great I might add, and I still need to get it tuned. I am really suprised at how good the engine ran right away and it sounds better than any of my other engines. At the moment I am swapping the front callipers out for crx ones and I have to take the rear ones off to paint them black... They were red before. So the car will be ready to go for next spring, and I hope to do a cscs time attack.
The only thing that pisses me off is my pressure plate is really soft after I took it in with the aluminium flywheel and got my 4 pick disc made... I should have bought a stiffer pressure plate instead if seeing if they could make mind stiff. Lesson learned, hopefully it grabs fine, and the only downside will be having a wimpy feeling clutch.

Put some integra type r rims on because they look pretty good and are light. The offset sucks though...are spacers a bad idea for destroying bearings?

we use 10-15-20mm spacers on rally car, depends on wheels... no problems at all.. but if possible, without spacers is best

Car looks the best!

Remember the wheel stud lenght is 19mm. So 20mm should be good.

I'm running 20mm on the rear with oem 7 spoke rims.

It's been a long time since I posted on my car. I bought a house in january and have been working on it, I put up a car shelter for my swift when we got the house in late january when my back yard was all frozen. Now with the thaw and large amounts of rain I have discovered that my property floods regularly. And floods the most out of everyone's on the block........fortunately, where I parked my swift in the shelter is one of the only spots in the backyard that doesnt flood. I'm DYING to get it out but our winter just keeps dragging on and my backyard is still a swamp. I'll be moving the swift and it's shelter into my driveway where I should have put it in the first place. That is if we ever get a summer here!
Don't mind the pictures showing the trashy back yard, the past owner was trash, I have to clean it all up once we get warm weather. Among other thing I had to dig out 4 old propane tanks buried in the yard for decades....some ppl

Since I work at a shop with antique woods, I made up this radio delete panel out of elm that came from an old barn beam. Elm is more or less extinct here, which is too bad because it has one of my favaurite grains.


I really like having this wood accent. It adds to the nostalgia :D

Very nice wood trim especially with the oval knot beside your meter. ..almost calls for a warning light or a USB plug to be installed in the centre of the knot.
