Default Rebuild & engine conversion

I have been very remiss in getting involved on the forum - this is my second post and I've had a my 5exi for 7 years now :S I wanted to post as I'm embarking on a new project - clearly I didn't have enough fun building her the first time around so I thought I would have another go! My chassis had sadly started to rust - pictures before and after attached - (powder coat peeling on road accessible surfaces) so I've stripped the car, shot-blasted, hot zinc sprayed & powder coated which hopefully will future-proof it for a while! I'm also taking the opportunity to switch the engine from 125bhp (AGN) to 225bhp (BAM - written off TT Quattro @ 66k ) - I hope I haven't underestimated the amount of effort this will all take, and how much more rapid the car will be when re-assembled!
