Title: VR Project
Post by: dubaudi on March 01, 2008, 09:26:37 PM
Hey here it is the VR project is finally becoming reality. It will take some time to build. Big thanks to Dan (Dubzentrum), i got a motor and most of the necessary parts just a few things to pick up. And thanks to Hardey (Hardeys Motorwerks) for getting me a bentley manual. In the coming weeks i will post picks of the removal of the old motor and the progress i make, much the way Andrew did. Thanks to Kevin for the vote of confidence and the offering of help if i get stuck. Ill keep you posted.

That would be great. I am welcoming all the help that i can get from anyone who wants to lend a hand. I am looking for some people to help finish smoothing the bay. i am not an experienced welder and i could really use some help with that. also taking out the interior.
