Loving the build I'm just about to start doing mine so might have to pick your brain for help. Just brought a aeb engine for almost nothing and got a 02a gearbox and the mounts.

Here is another Modification i have done to the front end of the car. These plastic inserts are great quality and made by Bouchay from our very own Mk1 Golf Owners Club.

I just had them sprayed the same colour to match the car.
















All Complete



On the Car



As you can see, the Silver Ports are for the Air Filter and Oil Cooler. I have made custom gaskets using leftover Hoses on both sides to prevent any scratching off the paintwork and to give a good solid fit.



Now its to start the dreaded wiring, luckily i have Rubjohny on hand for advice aswell some great right ups.







My Soon to be new air filter once the MAF has arrived



…and, the worlds most expensive tool bench  :mrgreen:
