With all of the years that I have messed with VW's, I have always loved the Mk3's and never owned a Cabrio, though I have always wanted to buy one for my wife to enjoy of her own. Well, when you get one, it seems that you end up with two - one for parts or a second project. This second car has ended up being a project. I went a few weeks back and bought a 95 Cabrio to possibly build as a project car. Tomorrow, the car will be delivered to me and the strip down of the car will begin. For the most part, the car is in decent shape as far as the body goes, but the interior and top are trashed, along with the motor and transmission. Luckily, it was going to be pulled and tossed for scrap. Today, I went to the auction and bought a 99 Mk3 Jetta GLX for the necessary VR6 swap parts. It will be delivered tomorrow also and the tear down will begin. I will post pictures of the project car from begining to end as I start this project. I have already acquired several parts that I know that I will need and over the next several months, will be buying and trading parts that I have from the donor car to get what I need for the Cabrio. There are several things planned for the car, but the major things I cannot disclose at this time, it will be a surprise to most everyone that knows me, though a few are already aware of the parts that I have coming or already have and they are keeping quite. Tomorrow, I will post pictures of the starting point and as things progress, I will post updates and pictures.
Facts on the project that have been made known:
24V VR6 Conversion
Forced Induction [details will not fully made known until the debut]
Color, Interior, Wheels and etc are all theme based [another secret : ) ].
