Pretend you have a flower seed. This flower seed makes a beautiful flower, but the catch is it takes a lot of work to help it grow. You put in all that work, watch it grow and grow. Right before it blossoms someone cuts it down right in front of you. 🙃
5 UPDATE: Winter is coming fast and it's time for another teardown: This time, front end.
Suspension arms have been removed in order to refurbish with new polyurethane bushes and paint. A MK2 subframe and steering rack await with Polyurethane engine mounts and rack bushes again, all rebuilt with new components. Engine bay maintenance is also being done with hopes for a new alloy radiator, coolant re-routing ( @skidnation ) and obligatory replacement of the water pump and timing belt.
At this rate I'll be pulling the engine to paint and do some tucking of the loom in the bay.
Big shout out for the help so far to these bois:

So the Motorsport season comes to an end. It’s been a fun year. Really pushed myself and the car to the limit, sometimes over the limit 😬. Managed to do 8 out of 10 rounds and collected 6 new class lap records along the way and won my class. That’s a good season. Bring on 2019 😁🏁
