Loaded up and headed to Hotrod's Automotive Paint Supply for its Mipa Paint makeover. Have the Rota Grids and mock diffuser inside so we can put it together and see how big we need the fender flares and skirts to be. • • • #mipapaint #paint #bodywork #fenderflares #rotagrids #rotawheels #widestance #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
The one thing I keep going back and forth on is the rain tray. Keep it or ditch it?! • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
The Scirocco is out in the sun for the first time in months! Time to load it on the trailer and head to Hotrod's for it's Mipa Paint makeover. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
The Scirocco is out of the shop! Time to play musical cars on the trailer and take it to paint and body. While it's getting fancied up it's time to pull in the Golf & start working on the VR6. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Front end completely stripped, wheels back on and on the ground. Time to roll it out, load it on the trailer to head to paint & body! Just needed @redskinsproud to give me a kick in the ass to get back to it! • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Finally got the tank out of the Scirocco! This was the last piece I needed to remove to get the car to paint and body. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Exhaust and Shift Linkage all gone. Only thing left to remove is the factory gas tank and fuel lines then just a few things to trim off. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Door glass, rear quarter glass, headliner and remaining wiring is all removed. Going to work underneath it tonight to pull the exhaust, factory gas tank fuel lines and anything else that's not needed. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
I've been keeping up with all the weights of the parts I've pulled off the Scirocco. Last night the 60lbs of interior pieces have brought the total to 410lbs. We still have the headliner, glass, OEM fuel tank, exhaust and a few little things to go. I'm hoping to shed over 600lbs before I add the roll cage, harnesses and racing seat. The few things I need to go back to figure out is like the difference in weights from factory parts vs new stuff like the coilovers and such. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
The challenge to myself tonight was to work on the Scirocco but keep my hands OFF the cutting disc. I showed self control and opted to removed the rest of the interior. She's almost completely stripped down except for the headliner. I started on it and the dang foam layer underneath was stuck like chuck. Nope... not tonight. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Flashback Friday... man I miss that 'ol Cabriolet! That was one sweet handling car and it had some crazy torque. SCCA, Drag Racing, Hillclimbs... I put it through hell and it took it! #flashbackfriday #volkswagen #cabriolet #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwcabriolet #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Rainy night, already wet so why not get started on that Refurbishing that Carbon Fiber Wing with a little wet sanding. Looking soooooo much better already. Going to pick up another 1500 sandpaper sponge tomorrow to finish it up. The sandpaper was so worn out it was hanging off the sponge. Calling it the night. • • • #carbonfiberspoiler #carbonfiberwing #carbonfiber #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Dash support mounts evicted! Changed my mind about the minimalist dash. Not going to do a dash at all now. Looks good as it is. Just going to paint it and mount the gauges right to the steering column support and upper firewall. Put a 5" Autometer Speedometer and Tach w/shift light on the steering column support. Mount four 2 1/2" Autometer Gauges to the right angled towards me. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Ditched the rear bumper, removed the exhaust and trimmed the bottom to fit a massive rear diffuser. @redskinsproud made up a mock diffuser out of HVAC duct so we can get an idea of the size I needed to fit right and get the look I'm going for. Have some more trimming to do but it's getting there! • • • #reardiffuser #diffuser #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Not much left of the interior wiring. Just need to figure out which ones go where because I want to leave the wires for the power windows in place. Why? Well I really don't want to hunt for new door panels and manual crank window assemblies for this old bastard. Unless I go to sheet metal door panels... hmmm.. • • • #ihatewiring #saynotoelecrical #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
So... All the wires under the hood have been evicted... and I didn't shoot myself in the face. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Opening the jets on the R1 Carbs at Ronnie Hall Racing. We were told by Bogg Brothers that 170 or 180 jets would work well, so we split the difference at 175. Should have the carbs ready to rock tomorrow. I need to get on the fuel cell. I didn't think we'd have the carbs tuned this quick! ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
