I'm building a Mk3 GTI TDI ... the mk4 is a pretty tough chassis but I would talk to Justin Carven from Grease Car about his mk4 build.

Engine enamel like Dupli Color "Grabber Green".

And I knew it would be tight cause those miserable OEM units have a flat section on the tube---and the design that you and we with Xratties have that sockets into the knuckle means we cant change the distance from flange face to strut centerline..it's a beach, mang.
