Coming back together. Ordered custom axles from Frank at Driveshaft Shop. Got the new hydraulic clutch line rebuilt and ready.



New clutch master installed in the old space, not cut and past unfortunately...





Ordered Corrado 5x100 hubs and have already recieved 5x100 -> 5x130 adaptors. I'll put my energy into The Ragster until the axles arrive.

It's getting love in my mind, but not really. It has been on the back burner till I can get the Boxster/bug off of the lift. The lift is smack dab in the middle of my wife's handicap vehicle business, so I'm really being an ahole being on the lift as long as I have already. Soon as they are both back in my little corner of the shop I may work on it again, but really I just can't wait to get the Bugster started up, so that might still be a priority!

Finally did a little work on the UBRDUB. One of the steps involved in putting the new tranny in was to replace the recycled steering rack with a dedicated part.

Engine is back home again, need to get everything up and running with the tiny turbo setup before I go big(ger, I know you BIG turbo guys are snickering). Need to fab up the new shifter linkage, hopefully its not reverse of what I had so far.



This "custom" custom bracket was a pain. It would have been fine just being custom, but I had to go and put everything in the back of a bug, so part of my superstructure got in the way. Narrowed and tapered it, hopefully clearance is adequate.
