Ok, Sump is off, and all broken parts are also off engine. Ordered new replacement parts.

Also rubbed down and painted Radiator support bar, and front cross member and fitted them along with the Custom made front Solid Engine mount to allow engine to sit lower (so bonnet will close) and also reduce engine movement,

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Crossmember

Also got delivery of these adjustable coilovers yesterday

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Coilovers

Fitted Brake fluid resevoir and topped up with fluid for now just to stop rubber seals from drying out.

Finished fitting VR6 pedal box and fitted pedals. (what a bitch of a job!!!) affraid

Once its cooled down over night (cast needs to cool slowly) thenm tommorow i will Braze it with Brass to make it double as hard then wash out all the Crank area with Parofine, make sure its all gleaming and no swarf etc left inside. Repair Sump, refit then rub engine down with wire wool and paint it black.

Decided there just wasnt enough room to play around between the pulley and chassis leg

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture041-1

So... out came the engine AGAIN
I marked up where abouts i needed to cut the chassis leg

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture043-1

Then cut top and bottom

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture044-1

Re-fabricated chassis leg and re-welded

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture045-1
Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture046-1

Gave me an inch more gap to play around with Cool

Meet K.A.T. MK2 Golf VR6T - Page 2 Picture047-1

Also hand polished upper part of inlet manifold by hours of wet and dry. Eventually came up well and painted detailed areas matt black
