'92 TSI Complete Rebuild From Firewall Forward - Part 18



As I get closer and closer to "finishing" this build, I find myself having a hard time remembering what things were like before it all started. So much has changed, but the last year has been a blur.

In an effort to remind myself of what I've gone through and to help keep me motivated, I started going through some of the pictures that I've shot over the last three years since owning this car. Several have recent counterparts from my build pics, so i thought I would take a break from my normal blog entries and post them up. Some of the pictures aren't the best quality, and they are at varying points throughout the build. But I think they are interesting regardless.

So without further ado, I present a few before and after shots. (in a larger resolution this time due to not having text :))

Well thanks, but I still see a lot of small stuff that I need to "fix". Once I finish the build and get it started, I plan on going back in for some detail work that I'm putting on hold for the moment.

It's been a long road and a lot of hours...but it will be worth it in the end i think.


Absolutely fantastic Craig! Truly a testament to your workmanship!


You need to give me a call whenever you do initial runs I would like to be there to watch it run or .... watch you curse and scream wildly if that other thing happens :p


WHat did you do with your power steering lines there? Just take off the big fat sheathing and bend them to go under the side motor mount?
