      This won't be anything fast pace or crazy just wanted to more or less have a place to document my build, have to backfit some of the older stuff now.

      Bought this off of Rocco87 here on vortex for 3k

      9/2/09

      Cleaned exterior, got it ready for a good buffing. Parts are orangish and pink. Hopefully a good buffing will help.


      100% Stock, 164k, needs some TLC with the interior.

      NA Headlights, new fog glass, and a new headlight switch

      Switch was bad, and someone messed these up pretty badly

      Thanks It looks pretty good after a buffing but you can definatly tell its been resprayed in a couple places, and some clear pealing. It will need new paint sometime but thats always last on the list in my mind.

      looks nice

      but why bother with another set of NA lights? upgrade to ecodes, you'll be happy you did

      Not my first corrado, I know the NA lights suck, but my NAs were broken and filling with water.... these new ones were in really good shape and only 75$ off here. New ecodes with wiring is over 500$ now, it'll come later, but Its a weekend car right now at best. Trying to get everything 100% before modding to much anyhow.

      Paint does look great! Red looks awesome when its really shiny. A lot better than when they are chalky. Your interior is in great shape too. You should treat your seats with Leatherique though, they look a bit dry. It will soften the leather up and make it last longer.

      Save up for Ecodes!

      The same way it attaches to the mk4 jetta I would presume, there is a round coller piece that a clamp sits down in to secure it to the shifter since these dont screw down like the corados.
