      better get on that

      gone through 18 pages now, which is 60 days back. I think I'll go back a year, maybe, then add some other completed builds, like ekkoj's other 2.

      maybe I'll alphabetize, Iunno.

      EDIT: apparently 60 days is how long a thread stays active before it's archived? it stops at page 18.

      did you ever do a build for the black one? I don't recall there being one here, just a "hey, here's the replacement".

      I did start another thread for the black one but it never ended up as detailed and I ended up doing loads without the camera around. I'll get round to doing another one someday

      this makes me want to start a build thread and actually update it with pictures of my progress instead of just posting random snapshots in misc. threads throughout the forums...

      ...but i dont think thats gonna happen.

      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      One of my favorite build threads ever. I want you to know when I first saw the pic of the damaged car I felt actual sorrow. I felt sooo bad for you.

      I prefer to remember it the way it was when you finished it.

      There are some good hybrids.... The ones that burn gasoline and rubber!
