      Nice build

      So I assume that the donor is a donor due to the strut towers? how the hell did that happen?

      are you going to swap over the brake setup and electric window's by chance? this looks like its going to be an awesome build just make sure you rust proof everything while your at it , its sucha good investment.
      no one gives a **** how many post's you have.

      we are going to try to keep the ABS from the MkIII and will be using pretty much all of the MkIII subframe. i don't think were going to use the electric windows, but we are using the heated seats!

      and yeah rust proofing is a plus with us. we will be using lots of waxes and sealants.
