    New Project VR6 Supercharged

    Opened another can of worms....love it though

    Nice nick Vr6....some electrical gremlins, and persistent water leaks, having stripped confirmed matrix OK, however fan seal had perished and door membrane leaking + 1 membrane missing altoghter! No wonder it smelts of dirty socks in there.

    Great work , I can’t see the pics though , I will take a look at the forum without using Tapatalk and see if they come up .



    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    New rims...

    Hmmm unsure, like the wheels....undecided about the colour....completely messed up the great handling....unfortunately necessary evil as the brakes have to be upgraded as existing brakes have tendency to fade and smoke with heavy use

    Finally started work on the car again, plan to give a clean, de-rust where I can, weld where needed and paint where needed...will chuck some other bits in that I have been collecting as well such as samco hose set, vibratrchnics engine mounts, poly bushes, bigger brakes all round...generaly car is not in bad nick rust wise.

    Blue? How does the Schrick manage the supercharger? An issues with the flap not moving due to the increased pressure on it? Just thinking about engine mods again...
