You're better off having an oversized Panhard bracket on the chassis end and keep the axle mount as short as possible.

If it slides sideways there needs to be slack in the cables.

No doubt Marcus has it well covered.

I've had situations where it's dozens.

I've fitted 2litre engines in cars that came with 550cc engines and that is a task.

A quart in a pint bottle? No a gallon in a pint bottle.

How will you colour change the pockets.

VW were never generous in providing instruments.

Nah!

Too truck like when your car isn't all that large.

You're going to have a lot of people (particularly car guys) scratching their heads trying to work out just what it is.

Why not Photoshop the front of the vehicle in the colour (or close to it) you want and see if it looks better or worse.

Some virtual cutting and welding is easier than actually doing it.
