    I am with a heavy heart to hear of John's passing. He was very kind, generous and an important key to my understanding of chassis design. you will be missed.

    Hello all, like Jim I also chose a Volvo/Ford electric power steering pump for the CLK build. I found a used one locally that luckily came with the mounting bracket and hoses. I fabbed up a small corner for the pump to live in the front suspension cradle, ahead of the passenger footbox (LHD)...

    Thanks Terry, that's reassuring to hear. . DaveC, I'll make sure to watch that video. That 1996- 1998 era produced incredible road cars due to the homologation requirements.

    Keith D and Daughters MK11 Scratch Build log

    Keith, good choice to go with aluminum for the body, it will be well worth it in the end. And think of all the cool new forming tools you'll need to buy! I'm going down the same road with the Merc. -Vinny

    Terry, progress has been slow, but I love every minute of it. Chris, there is a diagonal in the future for the roll hoop, and the removable x-member over the engine seems like the best solution for engine/trans removal. I wanted to double check the front width before breaking it all apart...

    Making a simple buck or mold.

    Russell, I would suggest making the full body in alloy over a wire frame buck, The car would be amazing. And you get to buy new tools. Its a win-win . -Vinny
