A little bit of progress.  Took the engine and box out in the weekend and fitted a new Rancho pro street to handle a little extra torque and power that the grissly old box would spin to death on.  Given me lot's of motivation now that I can finally see how every thing will fit together and how easy it is to pull it all apart.  Bought a ATV jack for the job which lowered the engine and just rolled it out under the car on it's trolley wheels. 
Some pretty serious rake in this shot  :P

Are you working on this in an underground apartment carpark?

Cheers.  When I was young I really couldn't stand buying a slow old VW.  Then I got here and maybe it was age but really appreciated their style.  Now I'm giving it the heart of pumping adrenaline it deserves - ha ha.  If I was to move back to NZ I'd take this with me - that's how much I dig it's style.

You should have a Melbourne vask meet and take some photos.
 Is it cool fun there?
