Oxer finally started on the front tubs.

9180242522_49e662065e_b.jpg

As you can see the passenger side had a bit of damage from a previous owner...

9180242602_7f25b380d4_b.jpg

9180242678_ef7f9baa96_b.jpg

9180242772_62dce0b8da_b.jpg

Cut out.

The rad support will be removed eventually, but before Oxer does that, he had to make the right hand side tub up with the clearance for the turbo's compressor housing.

9180254384_e0e5cc343a_b.jpg

9180254450_e23754e0fb_b.jpg

 

And thats as far as he got with it. He will get to the same point on the other side during the week, then with any luck next sat he can remove the rad support and make the skirts up. The radiator is here (MK1 VW GOLF), just waiting on the cooler and then we can start doing the removable tube rad support.

And for good measure, Oxer went to take photos of a friends car, so he snapped this of toli's RX7 with wheels thanks to Kriss.

Havent made much progress lately...

9298506877_355175e9a4_b.jpg

 

Now to make the inner skitrs. The factory ones oxer cut out as you will see in the following pic arent straight, its a bit of a pain in the ass to fold and bend sheet to make them suit the factory piece with his limited tools.

 

9298506961_4bc3da4fc5_b.jpg

 

To make it easier Oxer made up a tube section which he will also use to reinforce the mount for the removable radiator support.

 

9298507053_07b8b691ff_b.jpg

 

9298507169_d811da5daa_b.jpg

 

Lots of grinding to make it silky smooth

 

9298507269_f237158116_b.jpg

 

9298513873_c6e9449007_b.jpg

 

Then to start making the rad support mount...

 

9298513927_ddfa6f24fd_b.jpg

 

9298514009_93813256d8_b.jpg

 

And since toli's rear bar add-on came in, he wanted to mock it all up. Close to how it will sit, only instead of oxers 17" M7's, he'll run his 16" M7's. Pics for the stance kids lol.

 

9298514173_bb5bd761e9_b.jpg

 

 

9298514289_d55410e576_b.jpg

 

 

Oxer was trying yo convince Toli to let him give the car an intense flame job, but he is extremely far from convinced.

So oxer decided to finish the front drivers side.

 

It was raining pretty heavy and he was planing on using the clothes line pole to bend a curve into the sheet. He found the next best thing..

9335887562_80c4a15303_b.jpg

 

9335887642_090d394de3_b.jpg

 

He also did a little bit of stitch welding, wont make much difference, but meh.

 

9335887704_9fd891cef0_b.jpg

 

9335887786_878d22ffcc_b.jpg

 

Then he broke the top off a bottle of beer.... Since its against the law to waste alcohol, he did what any man would do, use paint filters and filter the beer into another empty bottle.

 

9335887858_ac50e66f57_b.jpg

 

Time to make the mounting points for the rad support which he is yet to make.

 

9335896986_58b8c39880_b.jpg

 

9335897084_e5804dfc9b_b.jpg

 

Over the years brake fluid had taken its toll on the drivers rail. Surface rust covered it all the way under the car and it had even caused rust under some of the painted surfaces. Toli got under and brought it all back to clean, bare metal.

 

9335897156_949171bee8_b.jpg

 

Oxer finished shaving the holes on that side, Cleaned it up and put it in etch primer.

 

9335897364_f5c92f214e_b.jpg

 

9335897248_0a9a089303_b.jpg

 

9335897428_b28838f1be_b.jpg

 

And thats as far as we got, by next weekend we hope to be at the same point on the other side.

So Oxer finished the metal work about 6 weeks ago..... His been busy with many things and at the end of the year will no longer have space at his house to do work like this, so we are VERY VERY Greatful...

Anyway....

Cooler, radiator and oil cooler are all mounted to the rad support, and can be removed with it.

The bonnet(hood) doesn't sit 100% because the rubbers aren't in it.

The car is now back at home where it will undergo further modifications.

update guys,

my bro toli decided to make Labour Day long weekend holiday worth while...

he loaded up the s2k broken gearbox & the PPG gear set into the bak of his daily fg falcon UTE and headed for SA...

he was fortunate enuf to stay with friends which made the trip cheaper...lol

on Sunday, Sam Charlick from Neat Gearboxes contacted Toli to meet at his shop and drop off the goods...

Sam is a awesome guy, he spent over an hour with Toli showing him his parts that we pre-paid for and the new shop inside out...

after smashing first gear here is wat we have discovered so far...

What you’re looking at is the auxiliary gear (PPG call this the drop gear).

It munched the oil pump drive gear.
