VW has 2 bolt patterns 5 x 100 or 5 x 112 the 5 x 100 wont work with the 82 mm bearings i used and if i use the hubs as they are i will need to buy 2 wheels due to the 5 x 112 bolt pattern so i can buy wheels and rotors or i can have these modified

Beautiful car and coming along nicely. BTW, what trans is this? How close is the bolt pattern to the GM Metric pattern? Thanks.

well i will say that i cost my self about $600 doing the hubs and axles they way i did i should have just used the stock hubs and the passat and fiero axles and welded them together . if you look at a VW passat axle you will see that the 2 axle shaft ends are welded in a tube all i needed to do was cut 1 end off then make a bushing and slide the cut off fiero axle in to the right length and weld

Now will this make it easier next time you need axels or just all around more expensive?

Here is WI, many companies are looking to hire trained machinists and CNC operators. I've been to New Hampshire, and It seemed like there was a pretty good industry base. Surprised there isnt many openings. Have you tried contacting any job recruiters, it's no cost to you. I get calls from recruiters just about every week looking to fill engineering openings.

One is never too old to learn. The fact that you know how to do all that, and can find the letters on a keyboard is a good sign that you can write some simple g code and set up an operation.

**** , I was going to say I used to work for 2 different company's up there doing construction but then again it's winter layoff time, however come spring if you still don't have any work there's a company mirra out of Georgetown ma that's always looking for CDL drivers ( you would have to labor a bit as well ) but the pay isn't the best but they have a lot of work

Ah, very close then. I live in VT, but my Fiero is stored and worked on at my parents place in Goshen, so I go right through Lebanon. I'd be curious to check out your project some time. Maybe spring time when I get my '88 out.

I used to work for the VA office for this outfit: http://www.oasisalignment.com/

Can't say it's great work, but it's work. They like machinists because you already understand numbers, tolerancing, spatial relationships (prependicularity, parallelism), etc.
