    It looks great! I'm working on the exact same areas. Although my work is not looking as nicely done as yours.

    A couple more of the rear end mocked up and the rear beam end plates i changed from the mk1 layout to a mk4 golf pattern to accept a mk4 stub axle and mk4 sealed bearings it also utilises the points a mk4 caliper carrier would which is a dual purpose caliper for the handbrake too

    the end floats about a bit, I keep planning adding a screw to press against the tracking to lock it .
    The ability to swivel the end is brilliant though.
    I had a B&D one many years ago thats why i bought the evolution one .
    The cable is cheap and nasty as per every tool they make.
