This is my first post on here but I've been reading through through the build threads for a while and getting ideas.
I started rebuilding this 79 doublecab 2 years ago so it has been a bit of a longterm project that I have been working on between other projects.
When I started it was going to be fairly stock just slammed with an lawn mower engine until I had a spin in a tdi bay with a flipped audi box and decided to change direction a bit.

I started back on it a few weeks ago after after a break of 9 months and I am determined to get it on the road for summer.ive put an early front panel on it along with early front arches and I have plated the rear light openings and cut the out for a set of early tail lights.
It was completely rotten when I got it so I've replaced all outriggers and jacking points the complete rear floor (cab area) 2 front arches,cab floor sections both sides,front bumper bulge replaced with an early inner valance.
2 new rear corners,inner middle and outer cills on both sides and some rear arch sections.

I finally got around to pulling the engine out of my 99 passat 90 bhp last week and dropped it in to start planning the next step.

Cheers moominbus too many projects that's why this one has taken so long.

I picked up a corsa b eps unit at the weekend and got the linkages sorted between it and the passat steering column,I've bought a Bedford rascal steering rack on ebay yesterday so as soon as that arrives I can figure out the best location for the eps unit and make up a frame to mount it too.

Got started on my adapter plate too.

Great work. Seems so much more easy to work on a crewcab!

Look at all room around the engine, the many angles from which you can look at it Laugh Out Loud

keep up the good work

Haven't got anything done in a couple of months I've been busy with other projects but I did pick up a 130 bhp passat doner and a set of air bags and air shocks so I am hoping to get back to it in a few weeks.

What condition is your crew cab in?
