We got the hard lines installed and the clutch is now all working. The fuel cell and pump are installed and started to run the lines

This is really cool. I feel like I should be amassing the skills to do this so that I can work up a build like yours when my kids get older. This would be a great project for a family of car freaks.

The main skills would be learn to use a tape measure and learn to weld.

Spent some time working on the Locost this weekend, got the IC pipes all done and powder coated and the BOV installed.* I wired up the MSD boost unit and the O2 signal modifier and the RRFPR.* I also got the 1.8L injectors installed

What kind of welder have you been using, looks like MIG? Not trying to be a dick but i would make sure the whole chassis holds up on some light runs before you push it, or put some more gussets/triangulation to beef the chassis.

The turbo kit is all done and installed. All the oil lines are run and coolent lines. I also powder coated the valve cover. Just need to sort out a few wiring issues and it will be ready to start.

Once I have the motor running I will install the VC and take better picture's. I am having some wiring issues and cannot get it running.

VC looks good dude!

I will have to talk to you shortly about getting my B6 cover done in a Hot White.

I want to have some -10 fittings welded on first though.

Send me a pm with what you charge, both if you need to sandblast and if i bring it prepped.

thanks
Matt
