  • Getting ready for the build

     

    Nearly ready to start bolting some bits on to the red Mk2 we had back from the bodyshop end of last year. We have decided to start building the car as a little show piece, to show whats possible with these new mk2 shells. First parts to go on will be the axle and suspension. We will be using top quality Rix Engineering components with Group-4 Bilstein dampers and coilovers. The build will be based on tried and tested Group4 parts including a fully floating atlas axle, Bilstein coilovers on the rear with 4 link and Watts linkage. Front will be Rix struts with Bilstein inserts, adjustable TCAs, compression struts, alloy top mounts and Grp4 alloy hubs.
