    Agreed... no more of every part needing to come from overseas.

    Update: 15/05/2024

    I'm backkk. I've been troubled with gossip that supposedly emissions are becoming stricter, making it extra tricky to get modified cars across the pits... so I'm giving it my best shot to get this thing passed now, before it's too late.

    Door cards were my last major mod that I've had to do! First of all, repaired the bottom of the driver's side a while back because it was cooked... must of been soaked wet for a while. Then, the mk3 dash sits probably a good inch or so wider either side than the mk2 dash did, so I had to 'scallop' the front door cards to fit the dash. I basically traced the dash onto the door card, cut it, and fibreglassed the cutout section of the door card so it sits hard in against the door... then with the handy work of my dad (what a legend!), recovered them. Also made a new door pull wire for the inside door handle as I was missing my passenger one... Stoked to have it all mostly done!! Still need to make a couple window winders as the current ones hit the dash so they just need to be stumpier.

    Now onwards with the little details... clearing codes, realigning the steering wheel so its not upside down lol, get my washing fluid system to work, thennn... I think I'm good to book it in, and hope for the best that it gets through Mk2 2dr Project Car (1.8t swap)Mk2 2dr Project Car (1.8t swap)Mk2 2dr Project Car (1.8t swap)

    Cheers,

    You know if you had a MK1 you wouldn't have so many issues.

    Or maybe twice as many problems.
