Hello,

 

hmmm, already two months without news... times goes so fast!!

 

Here then some new feed for the followers:

 

I have started to subscribe to the TMF+, as I know I will have to make some orders in the near future. Panels, replacement parts, trimming...

 

Then spotted some adds for replacement panels which I will need (mostly NOS): rear valance, A-panels, front wings. Some Heritage, some italian made, everything new.

 

And today I put my big order at M-Machine for the main and boot floors plus other repair panels I need.

Now I can wait 5-7 weeks due to the production time for my MK4 floor with the right stampings ;)

Hopefully I will not get worried due to shipping costs after this time...

 

And I have a roll-over jig from rolloverjigs.com which I slightly modified to be able to put some castors and painted.

 

Concerning the mechanical part I found four good-looking 998 Cooper pistons with raised D-top which I hope I can build on my engine to get the right compression with the 12g295 head.

 

That's it for now,

I hope I will be able to do another update soon.

 

Cheers

Gilles
