    Think you will find they can only be fab'd. I used mk1 rear stub axles and just had the stub machined down to give me a 10mm spacer on my mk1.

    We were hoping to bring someone into the Entrepreneurs section to make them, but this has been slow of the ground.

    As MK1G20VT says, get some Mk1 (or similar drum-brake) stub axles - & throw them into a local machine shop.

    you get brackets on some of the lupo's that would make good spacers
    they are 9.5mm and the holes even line up
    you may need to trim some of lugs off
    they cost 10 each
    the p/n 6E0501466A and 6E0501465A

    i will try and get a picture up

    @mushy. thats a great price on those spacers
    cheaper than sourcing a second hand set of drum stubs

    Bit of a trim round with 1 cutting disc, take the burrs off the edges and it looks good to me:

    Mk1/2/3/Polo/Ibiza/Lupa all the same I believe?

    There may be a date cut off when this changes - anyone?

    They're rear caliper brackets I guess? I can't figure out why they needed to make them [:s]

    Our 'win'.

    It's academic, but I'm guessing they're fitted to Arosas too?

    yes it for rear caliper to bolt to
    as far as i can see it is only the lupo that has them

    i got them to see if i could bolt 256mm rear brakes off a V5 or 4motion
    on to the mk2/3 beem
    but it has been sat on my desk ever since
    now i have a sticky caliper on the 4motion
    i will try it in the summer i still have to make some spacers up
    it will probably not work but just want to see

    you could but it is all down to cost and most paces that do this want to make a bob or two
    you really need someone to do it as a homer
