man you should have conserved the wheelarches after painfully grinding them down....look at all the flyrust on there now!!
somehow it looks like the front mask doesnt fit??
or did you just hang it there to see how it looks??
I know I should have primed the fender wells I will grind them again and strip the paint in the bay then por-15 the front
I'm not sure about the front... it is welded on, the fender wells will need to be extended to meet the new front. Remember this was a NA GTI
did you try to put on the euro fenders already? do that first before you start working on the extensions, this is just wierd imo
Sanded and primed more, got some free paint, spray painted my valve cover and booster and got a new timing belt and full gasket set in the mail. Hoping to paint the bay, reassemble the motor and trans with the new gaskets tomorrow. I'll get some pics up tomorrow aswell.
On a sad side note we lost one of our dogs around 11:30 last night when some punk flew done the road in a truck. They never go in the road and rarely go out that late alone. I didn't get any sleep and was quite depressed today but working on the car helped. Thats three pets this year
this was our youngest and funniest little guy
So I sanded the worst spots and resprayed it. Then i started to reassemble and started to mock up the motor/trans so I can start working on the mounts. I also mounted the passenger seat and made some strap inside door pulls.
Also had a job interview at the mountain and it went really well so hopefully in two weeks I will have a full time job!

Quote, originally posted by vdubspeed » when you get tired of the eurovan clutch cable and want a honda one, I have a cable and custom bracket I made I would sell ya cheap.
Project looks great though. I like how you did the fuel cell
So what so great about this honda cable vs the eurovan set up? Just curious...
I can also take more pics around the fuel cell if anyone is interested, it came out really nice
I was laid off because its seasonal work making snow. Not much got done on the car my shift was noon to midnight and most off my free time was spent sleeping...
So new 16v driveshafts installed. New head bolts installed. Looking for parts and getting motivated to finnish it!
^^^ sprint 5. I'm really happy with them they fit great even though I'm on the slim side... can't wait to get some seat time
Megasquirt on the way! also picking up some wheels and tires this weekend! And a foot of snow last night, its gonna be a good week
