      ...and soon as i get the rest of the pieces i'm gonna build a nice VRT powered "Lego dub"!

      Let's begin shall we....
      Starting with a 92 Jetta GL. Only problem body wise is the crinkled strip under the rear taillights. No biggie as i have a new factory skin that i bought for the Coupe.



      Engine that i'll be using is a OBD2 VR that currently has 95k on it. I've owned it since 78k so i know its well maintained.


      That's enough for now. I have more pic's but i'm just letting everyone know that the ball is in fact rolling...

      Oh, that engine will not touch the bay with all that dirt. It will be stripped, cleaned & paint. Just waiting to take this...

      ...off the engine stand.

      Edit.
      This is my grocery getter.

      This Trini is on board with your newest project Dreadz, keeping my eye on it.
      Even though I may look at you with absolute disgust...I do still love you.

      I'd like to see dreads tuck some 18" snowflakes in there. I believe dreads is more than capible to pull off those wheels on a mk2.

      The Coupe was built mainly for looks...with a little bit of speed. This Jetta will be all function over form. I'm shooting for big power with minimal weight. The engine/drivetrain will be "Phase1" of the build. Exterior's "Phase2 & Interior's "Phase3". No fancy shaved bay or shine bits, unless its making me power. Due to some unfortunate problems i had over the winter, i sold off mostly all the turbo stuff i had when i was planning on turbo'ing the Coupe so i'm starting from scratch.

      I gotta do some things to the Audi before starting with the project so it won't start for another 2 weeks or so. But i'm gonna strip the car down to the shell and build up from there. The plan is to have it mostly done by the end of the summer but i'm in no rush.

      Bump as this will be happening in the next week or two.

      Here are some definite facts:


      The VR Coupe will be stripped and junk'd

      Got some new wheels in the works. If i get em, they'll be broken down and refurb'd

      I'm shooting for 600+whp

      I will be stepping my game up on this one.

      More to come...i promise this

      Batan's term is up...I'm Obama'ing this one CHANGE. No mo' Canadian Prez

      And no, not going to H2oi It really bothered me that i wan't going but i'm ok now after i got the ok from the Mrs. to get the ball rolling on the project. She felt bad that i couldn't go as she knew how important H2o was to me. I love Mrs.Dreadz

      Oh, i'll be throwing in some progress on the Audi too. I just order Arnott Gen2 airbag setup to replace the leaking stick bags & some new shoes, some paint and a few other thing will be getting done on it.
