      Boo old single stage paint
      I'm starting on the bodywork tonight, after I finish the engine mounts, and getting her to run a little better. Right now she's running on no 02 sensor and no knock sensor, she runs pretty good but :-x. I picked her up on tuesday, she had CIS problems, timing problems and ugly seats, which I kindly swapped power recaros . Now onto the pictures! I'll keep updating as the bodywork progress's this week, ultimate goal is to be finished my h20, as I already am staying at the princess royale, booked my room already. Raceland coils are on their way, tracking says thursday. She has 100+ miles on her, odometer isn't working, at 107k right now.






      btw this is what I do at work

      Thanks, Raceland coils are on their way! I'm looking at my box of parts from germanautoparts, which includes front strut mounts, rear poly mounts, all new engine mounts, new plugs, wires and a distrib. Only thing I have to decide on now is a color.

      Rust is nobodys friend. I was installing my raceland suspension, when I saw a tiny spot of rust under an old repair. The car was hit here prolly about 10-15 years ago. They did a pretty nice repair I thought. I had to cut in a few new patches. This is how I spent my saturday.



      I got lazy and forgot to take pictures after grinding a lot of seamsealer to finally make it clean enough to weld... Heres where I finally made my patches.

      You can see the racelands in this pic.

      Then I just spotted it.
      Pictures this morning of the coils


      Reverse rake... for now. I need to raise the back, and drop the front
      Today I will be welding the patches in that fender. I decided to save the fender because most of the bodywork will be behind the bodykit anyway.
      More or less this is how the car will look for h20, as I will run out of time . I will spend this winter getting it ready for paint and rebuilding the head. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Punch list on saturday included.
      1) Install new Knock Sensor
      2) Install new 02 sensor
      3) New plugs
      4) New suspension + Mounts all the way around.
      5) WELD
      6) Treat control arms and engine subframe with POR15.
      7) Get por 15 on my hands because the gloves broke, and now my hands are black.

      Who's going to h20? I will be staying at the Princess Royale. Hope to meet some of you guys

      Orange...I like that.
      I'm picturing that with black euro bumpers and black body kit for contrast.....that would be sharp!

      I'd definitely do the body kit in black for the contrast - it would be a real head-turner, and it would accent the body design very nicely. Give it a true "euro" look.

      Just in time for Halloween too!
      Seriously though, I'd do it that way.

      LOL the paint doesnt match


      See you guys at h20

      So been messing around here and there with her.
      Updates are the following
      Got a new engine for the Scirocco for a 9a swap with about 50k on it, blew very nice on the leak down test. Going to throw some new valve springs, and lifter in the head along with a set of shrick 276's.
      Pulling the motor soon, so I can jam / clean up the engine bay.

      I'm almost done with the bumpers johnny. I'll post pics either this weekend or thanksgiving weekend.
      Also looks like I'm closing on a deal for 11:1 83mm pistons for my 9a block too.
      I love black bumpers though

      More I look at both of these cars the more I want to stay red, but at the other time, I want to be different.
