brakes from a opel vectra will fit onto the Mk1 without adapter brackets, you can use 256, 280 or 305mm VAG discs dependant on wich caliper you use!

cheers

LOL on the Rusty Jones sticker.  :)

Strange that you imported a US-built Rabbit.  Good luck finding a vent window, they are very rare.

Good luck with the project!!!

Which transmission are you using?  Are you doing a dash swap too, or just modding the original for the cluster?

Is that a box of spare parts in the back seat on the in-car video? ;)
