Because of my oil filter hitting the frame I had to get an oil filter relocation kit. In order to install it I also had to remove the stock oil cooler but since I will be installing a bigger external one I should be ok. I'll be running the lines to the cooler that was installed in the driver's rocker. Once I get the lines put in and the filter relocated I'll post more pictures.

Mocking up my steering column, dash support and pedals. I still need to get the support further in so the steering wheel doesn't stick out so much maybe just a couple of inches more. The pedals will need to be cut and brought up but it should work out well.

I did buy another cooler for my transmission since it originally had the lines going through the radiator. Got a bracket made and mounted it to the back of the engine. I will be getting different fittings that are angled so i can route the lines a little bit better. I ordered a fan from a motorcycle that I will mount to the top of it.

I'm pretty happy with how the uprights came out and how the wing sits on them. I had to make sure that my exhaust lid wing was able to raise and lower without hitting them. Now that it clears properly I can start making molds. Right now everything is just taped in place, I still have to figure out how to mount the darn things.

Hi Pedro, looks like you are making really good progress, if you do have to shorten your peddles don't get too carried away, ideally you want about a 4.1-4.2 :1 ratio on the peddles, you would be better to raise the booster assembly if possible, I'm having the same issue with my Countach build, there is just not enough height available for standard road peddles, and if you lift the booster too high it will hit the Bonnet

G:

The A/C, steering rack, pedals and dash support all came out of the same Passat I am tearing apart. I'm trying to use as much stuff as I can from that car.

Lambo1:

Good advice thank you very much. I did raise them a little bit and now the accelerator pedal is about 2" off the floor and the brake pedal slightly more. If I do have to make them shorter now it would only be a small amount. I will see if I can raise it more now that you mention it so I will not have to cut them at all.

My good friend Carlos let me borrow the right door handle that I was missing. I finished molding it last night and I also modified the handle bucket from the left side to fit the right side handle. I still need to mold the bucket because I wanted to make sure that it would work out first.

Installed the wiper along with the motor and transmission from a 2013 Toyota Yaris. This wiper is very close to the OEM dimensions and it worked out well. It was a bit tight under the cowl but we got it mounted.

Finally finished molding my door handles this past weekend and I manage to get one installed today. Made some standoffs and bonded them in place with some duraglas. I was also able to adapt the lock cylinder from my Passat and used it in the original position of the door handle.
