I'm just on 35mm springs, I got some swedish things called lesjefors, they're pretty good. I was going to get some koni's with the 40mm drop but I'm kind of glad they stopped making them lol. It's way low enough for my travels as it is.

As for the bushes on the lca don't forget to buy the audi TT/R32 ones, they're far better than the standard ones, part number is 8N0 407 181 B
I found the regular one just went poop withing a few months where as these are on their second car lol. I used to have a seat hence the user name.



It was pretty funky but rust was catching up and getting the panels etc was really difficult. They only made them for a couple of years in that style and only a few came over here. Most of them stayed in spain.

Damn that sucks about the oil pan. I just measured my fender to ground on my Golf: 23 3/4" inches, no oil pan problems...*knock on wood*

As said I have a spare lol, as long as you stop when you here that loud CRACK! lol the engine will be fine once the new pan is on. You also get those hybrid ones, shallow ones and engine spacers, all of which I think would be lighter than adding a big heavy plate to the front.
I'd have a plate if I was rallying but I'm not so I wont

yeah i ordered the hybrid plate , defenetly also going to get a metal skid plate(panzer)... im not shure about the engine spacer tho, sounds like a very good idea but also kinda complicated, idk maybe its just me. When i replace my oil pan im going to try to fix my old one; take it to school and re-weld the hole shut since its not that big(pencil tip size)

Anyways i think the hybrid plate and a metal skid plate(will buy it anytime before winter) will be enough..i guess i didnt evaluate the gravel road well and didnt pay attention, its not like ill be slamming my car anytime soon

Ok soo here is another update, its been a while..
I got my order with the replacement oilpan, ordered a hybrid one since ive heard good this about it and they are much more durable.Also you can see in the following pic i got a roof rack,it was all rusted up and had no key but for 20$ i couldnt pass it up..

here is a comparison picture between old/new. you can see were i got the hole next to the drain plug on the old pan..

also since i couldnt drive the car for a week, i decided to paint my front end diy style just to make it more or less the same colour. also while the fender were off i coated the frame with truck bedcoating a certain spots to prevent corosion..

final product(not bad for rattle can, although i need to redo the hood):

also i yesterday i went to a car meet called "JDM monday meet" were mostly japanese cars meet up, and i found out they took a picc of the jolf yay;

thats all for now, i still need to change my lca bushing and tie rods and as soon as thats all done im probably gonna get some JOM coilovers. Also my friend may hood me up with .205 nozzels.. And ill also need to finish smoothing/paint my trunk

well it was supposed to be the same but my car has already been repainted in the past by a previous owner soo i suspect thats why i couldnt get a perfect match, i knew this would happen, but its just too make it look more or less the same, i would love to get the whole car repainted in the futur, but its not on the top of my list atm..

Nice conversion...actually silver is probably the hardest colour to match after it's been painted.

What colour were you thinking of painting it?

Well the paint is not my top priority right now, but when the day comes these will be mychoices:
1.dark gray (like on the gli jetta)
2.reflex silver
3.some sort of brownish colour

for now the job i did seems to be good enough, will see how long it holds up..i also might add a plaid pattern on the hood since it needs to be redone, and i also have a friend that is gonna make me a nice grafiti tag in the inside part of the hood soo that should be cool..

Isn't your car reflex silver? The wing you painted isn't, you're car looks like mine regarding the wing. My car is reflex silver but the wing isn't yet, it will be at some point though.
Anyway what's your colour code?
