Finishing the TDI Golf

Posted in Customer Cars, Fabrication, Services, Shop Projects with tags , , , on January 29, 2010 by dominationchassis

Well it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is finally coming into view. We are finishing up the details on the noSPARK Rally TDI Golf. Fuel lines and pump have been run, the SCCA approved FuelSafe cell is in and the frame for it is built, the skid plate has been made and everything is undercoated.

This car will be ready for the Sandblast Rally in South Carolina on Feb. 6th. So if you’re going to be there, be sure to check it out!

On with more pics!

Work is progressing very well on the noSPARK Rally TDI Golf. We have finish welded everything into place and set the ride height on the rear suspension.  We made a cover for where the spare tire well once was and will be doing some seam sealer this afternoon. There are pictures coming once I get them edited.

Stay tuned!

More Progress on the noSPARK Golf

Work is progressing nicely on the TDI Golf. We are going with a 2000 Dodge Neon rear suspension, which obviously is not made to fit, so everything is going to be custom fabricated.

We’ve got the neon all cut up and are beginning the process of setting up the neon suspension to test fit/mockup.

Next up on the list at the shop is a 2000 Volkswagen Golf Rally Car.  This car came in for some body work and suspension work.  We have something special in the works for the rear suspension including a multi-link setup.

Here are the initial pictures of the teardown:

This is the current project in the shop which is in the final stages of build. It is a MKIII kit car from Factory Five Racing (http://www.factoryfive.com).

This car is powered by a 4.6L 4V S/C V8 from a 2003/2004 Ford Mustang Cobra. Factory ratings on this motor are around 375/375 hp/tq. This should be a pretty stout vehicle when finished. Here are a couple of shots:
