VW Scirocco Brake Upgrade

Last week we upgraded a 1980 Mk1 Scirocco 9.4″ non-vented to 10.1″ vented brakes from a 1988 Mk2 Scirocco 16v. We also upgraded the brake lines to braided stainless steel and ran a new brake hard line to the master cylinder that was seized while doing the upgrade.

 

Mk1 VW Scirocco Custom Wheels

Meister Werks has an special way to convert a OEM wheel into a 3 piece custom wheel. These VW Scirocco wheels have been machined to accept BBS Motorsport racing lips. We machine these wheels from a 13″ and upsize them to a 15″ using this technique. We can  bolt directly on to this pattern 15″,16″ and 17″ lips and barrels.

After we converted these 3 piece VW wheels, we powder coated them with a base coat of gold and a top coat of candy lollypop red. Masking the flanges and back side was necessary since we have to seal the back barrel with silicone. The front side uses a gasket also made by BBS. Since these are both flat lip and barrels, there is no way to mount the tires. The wheel must be assembled inside the tires. On 16″ and 17″ BBS Motorsport lips, this is not a problem since they are not flat lips. The 16″ & 17″ barrels have a drop that allows the tire mount with a regular tire machine and does not require a gasket.

Pricing to convert these VW wheels to a 3 piece wheel starts at $3000 and goes up, depending on machining times, materials and hardware.
