I went to H2O International this weekend in Ocean City, MD. It's a VW show, but a lot of different cars showed up in town for the weekend.
The S2000 behind it was on the pinchwelds!
Interesting mk1 was hacked to the ground. It looked cool, but I would be afraid to ride in it!
I like these wheels.
Terrible pic, but the wheel fitment was very precise. Flush within .005" I would say.
This was pretty clean.
I spy Raychem DR-25 heatshrink on those wires :)
I wish I was normal and capable of building a simple car like this.
This Corrado was one of the cleanest cars at the show, but the owner was the biggest megadouche I have ever encountered. There aren't many people that make me upset, but I really didn't like his attitude.
Back to work!
I got the cylinder head in place.
And torqued the head bolts. 33 ft-lbs, then 44 ft-lbs, then +1/4 turn, then +another 1/4 turn. These are really tight!
I had to make a tool to torque the bolt on the camshaft pulley. 2 bolts, a Taiwan prybar, and a little welding.
New oil fill plug bolt for the A/C compressor. This is 3/8-24 thread in case anyone was wondering, the rest of the thing is metric.
Alternator and A/C compressor in place.
I installed the timing belt tonight.
Distributor timing marks aligned.
Intermediate shaft timing marks aligned
Timing covers installed!
Only a few more items to paint, then I'm ready to start the bodywork on the car itself!
