Cheers chaps, trying to get a constant flow of progress!


Couple lunch times of fab work, oil cooler brackets this time. Will all be sunken into the down piece of the slam panel and sit behind the bumper, a few mods and addition pieces to gain more airflow to the core soon once I have a bumper to mock up with.

Step by step pics of each process just to show how it's all made

Blanks cut, marked and dot punched
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-81

Holes cut to size, then corner pieces cut to shape ready to bend
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-83

First bend done
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-82

Set up in the folder, set over the end of the bed to allow second bend. If I bent the ends first I wouldn't have been able to use the same folder for each fold, so would end up with different radius'†

mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-84

Bent either end
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-96

Test fit
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-95

Same process again for the back piece, blanks cut, marked and dot punched, pilot drilled awaiting next size up.

mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-85

All holes drilled upto 6mm then two outter holes to final size of 12mm. 6mm central drill used for centralising the hole cutter on the 4 middle holes.
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-86

Hole cutter time
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-93

Bending to allow for the thickness in core to end tank size.†
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-92

Bend 2†
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-87

Test fit with the end brackets and centre section
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-91

End brackets didn't slot in as nice as I wanted so modded the cooler ends so the cooler could slot back into the backets and be nicely fixed even before the bolts go in
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-90

Fits much better
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-89

More to come over the next couple days guys, cheers for reading Smile

No I didn't dude, I got the caddy one through work which is the same as this on just with out the fancy black fittings. I got this one off g60nik off here he never used it so worked out cheaper. Think automotive are the nuts, give them a ring and they will sort you out Smile

Afraid not, we don't sell them but I would advise maybe calling think auto and see if they could maybe beat it, that is a very very good price indeed! The one I had for the caddy was just over £200 but due to the black anodised push fittings. Did look smart though!

Ha wouldn't expect a more helpful comment man! Glad I'm heading in the right direction!


Few more from last night and today, the bottom of the slam panel I cut out made the rest really weak, so I decided to fab up a new bottom section†

Haha clearly to much time! Could have had it done by now if I wasn't so picky!


So finally after pissing around with a lump of steel for 3 hours I finished the slam panel pieces! Can weld it all up tomo so imagination will come in handy now Smile

Thanks to Dan for making me these, billet replicas of original radiator mounts
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-118

Tacked on ready for mounts to be cut in and fitted on the modded front panel
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-117

I kept the radiator mounting holes from when I chopped the front panel up, so cut them out into single recesses, folded to sheet with a hole in as new mounts. Still need to be cut into the front panel. The rad and cooler with sit level in the bay not wonky like standard as that really irritates me big time!†

Quick mock up to check clearance with the head resting in place
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-128

Grinder happy with the slam panel, cut the old piece out and tacked the new bits in,†
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-126

End cap brackets for the oil cooler welded and ground before tacking it all up
mk2 golf mtdi build-daily to be - Page 5 Photo-125

Most of the pieces in place, still needs tweaking to get maximum clearance for the intercooler and good flow to the oil cooler, the bumper slots over and covers it perfect so mods to the bumper soon
