Need help with a Scirocco mk1 project
Hello! I recently got motivated to start a mk1 Scirocco project after seeing this on BaT;
http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1979-volkswagen-scirocco/
I had a 1980 mk1 when I was 19, and it remains one of my all time favorite cars I've owned.
My biggest complaint with my mk1 was the lack of power. An engine swap (like that '79 from BaT has) would be perfect.
While I am handy, I feel an engine swap might be a bit much for me to take on.
Can anyone suggest a mechanic that might be a good fit to partner with on this project?
I was originally going to reach out to Fix-Im Haus as they are near where I live, but saw there was a Yelp review that said they weren't a good shop for older model work.
Thanks!

I have a friend that is having DJM handle his G60 swap.

Cool thanks. Now that my mk1 has arrived there are some more pressing issues.
Mainly the windshield. Anybody have suggestions for a glass place in town that may stock?
