      hello boys and girls!
      im new but was frequently visiting your amazing site.
      respect to all of you who spend freetime and bucketloads of money in improving and modding vw cars to perfection!
      you have been a big inspiration to me, now is it time to do it myself!!
      im a mk1 fan since my first one in 96` and now i bought a nice and 100% rust free 80`modell that was waiting in a nice and warm garage the last 10 years, i just had to buy it! i came along a 1.8t engine gearbox combi from a audi tt and took it without thinking too long.
      there is a lot of work to do so im gonna keep you updatet as soon as
      can.firs some pics of the stuff that i allready bought and made for my last mk one that i lost to rust at the chassis you may get the idea behind that car!!

      your right!!
      the bumper is a dietrich rs2 bumper.
      its kinda expensive here in germany as well.
      the doorhandels are audi 89 doorhandel from suspension-supply.de
      about 55$ with transport... or even cheaper @ ebay
      i finally found a intercooler that fits into the hole in the middle of the bumper just figuring out a way to mount that thing and connect the tubes from the turbo and manifold
      i maybe have to drill or cut out some holes for them
      ill send som pics when i find a way. stay relaxed

      ok i worked on the intercooler and mountet that little su&%$ with 2 solid steel stripes that i forged
      now it fits ecsactly in the middle hole of the bumper.
      i had to order the samco bends and it seems like i have to wait some more days?weeks? i dont know
      today i broke down everything to blast and clean and paint,
      so that i have something to do in the waitingtime...

      the piping is going to be tricky but luckily im a pipe fitter

      today i got some new pads and brakelines for my
      corrado g60 front and 16v rearbrake setup.
      i hope they work well with the original discs, we`ll see...
      tomorrow my brakes should be back from sandblasting
      so that i can paint and mount them...
      what would you think would be a reasonable price for
      sandblasting the whole body???

      hello guys
      i talked to the guys at the sandblasting and they didnt really like to blast my car ,i quote: im not shure about the underside i maybe have to spend hours just to get that done!
      not amused i say!
      so what would u do with a completely partet car and no rotationary?
      check it out


      i had not only undercoat to fight with i also scraped and scrubed an awfull lot of tar from the underside i hope tat it finally can go in sandblasting and prime.
      oh i got my cousom driveshafts btw unfourtunately they have been a little on the pricey side of life (400$) with shipping i hope they r worth the money

      stay low-go fast

    31. 08-28-2007 05:00 PM #31
      Dude that driveshaft is the coolest thing ever! How can nobody else see that?

      Great work on the car, dude. It's gonna be a beast.

      OMG the driveshaft ftw.
