I was wondering what parts do a lot of you look for and can't seem to find? I have a pretty capable workshop and wanted to see if I was able to make any parts for you members that are either too expensive, very hard to find or brackets/adaptions?
Thanks for reading, I'd like to hear back from anyone who has the time.

hi there hyde
a good kit to make would be a conversion for the clutch pedal cable to mimic the kit from south africa, this would involve making a shortened cable and a bell crank bracket and linkage to go betwwen pedal and bulkhead. ... NRuha3TG-M
these arent very expensive to buy if you can find one, they seem to be really rare

Secondly a connecting rod to replace the bell crank system the scirocco currently uses between brake pedal and servo, there is one on the market called autocaven brake bar linkage but again rarity and probable expense limits the use as well as most kit made for mk1 golf not rocco. ... pAyMLHgnQM
i think both of these would be popular upgrades for many people if you can make them cheap enough.

I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!
