Damn that's close.
Will the magic of a high speed grinder improve the clearance situation without compromising the component?
Getting something caught in there even for an instant would not be good.

Was invited to display my car at the OpenRoad VW grand opening sunset beach party yesterday. The trucked in enough sand for an 18" deep beach volleyball court. Best dealership opening I've ever been to. Food was great, drinks were great, and the volleyball tournament was a huge hit. Every member of the winning team got a golf R for the weekend! Pretty impressive dealership too.

Fun weekend at the Great Canadian VW Show. Started with a VW drag racing night at Mission on Friday and ended with the show on Sunday at Concord Pacific.



It was hot as hell, temps were 34C when the runs again. Super fun group of cars to watch. From 20s air cooled 70 year old bugs to an mk3 golf (team All Race) that did 9.5s at 156mph.

This one:



I got a chance to race this VR5...pretty fast but I still got him! 😏









Despite the heat, and a 180lb passenger, still managed 11s!



(Run on right with passenger)



The show was huge...filled concord pacific over 400 cars and thousands in foot traffic came through













Took home first in class!

Thanks! Definitely been a labour of love (and sweat and blood) and countless hours in my garage. It's been fun coming up with custom solutions too since the platform is so new.
