What built in CAM program are you using? I have HMS Express in Solidworks, but I am seriously considering switching over to Inventor as my default CAD program.

I am quite enjoying your build log thread, especially the photos.
I have often looked at my Passat power train and wondered how nice it would be in a 7 build, should the Passat ever deteriorate to the point of being a donor.
So far it is running strong at only 12 years old, but on the other hand who knows what the future may hold, if not the motor at least the IRS setup.

This new employee of yours looks more like
ex--commie comissar with that red
scarf, you should give him a broom
and old-butch to keep the place tidy,
instead of touching mechanical stuff.

ROTFL !

Steering done. There is a small amount of flex on the first knuckle coming out of the steering column. I will add another heim joint there. It is solid though.

some pics of the new aquisition......

Compressor and a dryer.

What a difference the dryer makes. Plasma cut 50% better, no water in the line at all.
