So, lost no time and started cutting yet more parts of my car





Removed



Before - blocking



Now front end can be bolted in place to go for further measurements



Started bringing more roll cage parts



Installation kit



Everythng was dressed in alcantara if you recall







Started by opening free the tabs to see where they sit roughly



I figured I'd better start installing it, since this wasn't very fixed in place - lol









Started getting somewhere











I am pretty sure interior will be crazy once I finish it.



Played with my wheels a bit, pretty sure, we will be staying 245 in front





However, I am currently having difficulty in sourcing a rear diff - supra, dodge viper maybe. If anyone can help let me know

Cheers

more to come



Mike

Started putting more cage parts in place, and bolted everything in place









The smile on my face after we installed this







Then I needed to make measurements where to drill to bolt these



Still unsure of where large (darker) plates are used

INstalled one leg





Rest will follow

Cheers more to come

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they go under the other plates as strengthening?

Well, that was thought as well, however, they dont have the holes drilled which is weird since everything is bolt on in the kit. I wish it had some instructions

What is more, there is not enought flat space where the bolts exit for the plate to sit properly

Does this help?

Installation Guide


Alternatively, their contact email is service@wiechers-sport.de, I'm sure that they will respond to any query about fitment.

No problem at all, I enjoy reading your project threads, so any way that I could help is worth it.

Keep up the good work.

Found the cam gear that was hiding





Gotta check for clearances for the forthcoming front part fabrication





Red lines indicate cutting marks



What is more, some parts that my friend designed, appeared in our garage in the flesh





Such a lovely feeling









These three brackets are to be welded to reinforce the structural integrity of the mount



Oem Toyota hardware, plus Audi hardware, plus custom hardware



Toyota gearbox mount will sit like this in situ



Let's see





Very pleased with results





More to come

Cheers

Mike, that is absolutely the way to do things!

With this transmission mount now complete, is the engine now fully mounted?

More updates then.

Found this in my garage- which looks familiar to be honest



Oh yes, now i remember





This amazing way to keep the hood open by Vi's Engineering i think we can even sell these



Good thing is that the hood could close in place with engine in situ





Then it was angle grinder time - yeap that's me with my favourite tool



Marked



I knew I was more into surgical specialties rather than medical oncology



Removed





Leaving us with this



Grabbed the OEM piece as a template



And then my friend from Corleone Garage, aka "the tall" made something out of nothing





Hmmm that looks good



Just a template for some measurements



Things were better than we hoped



Minor issues that can be sorted mostly.

Then I cut some more parts from the lower part of the front structure - will get to that later



Time to throw on the RS4 bumper to check some things



Tom and the Tall were happy needless to say





And so was I



Look at that







Lots of room for radiator stuff it seems. we shall see





I know there is A LOT of work ahead of us, but seeing the car like this after all this time, surely makes me smile



Cheers



Mike
