did u clear coated ats cups?
what tires do u run in front?
anyway jetta looks awesome!
Hello again just an update to let everyone know that we haven’t forgotten about this car and that we have just been busy with other stuff. But there has been progress and here are some pics enjoy.
Decided to go with a semi engine bay flush once completed will be going back into the body shop for an engine bay re-spray. Got loads more pics that I will be update soon until then enjoy…
Another update the engine bay is finally finished and red oxided. The paint has been ordered and hopefully will be going on so. We want to get a wrinkle like finished so need to do more research on that.
Also once the engine was taken out of the Corrado we found that the turbo manifold was welded by an amateur. After looking at this we decide that this should be changed as we’ve done everything properly and this would be letting the project down to put this into the car.
And the boot trim has been cut down and fitted.
Hope you like
Hey looks great! I love the color, very clean. I'm not ussually a fan of Chinese tails but they look pretty good!!
hello little update for the engine bay...
I talked about wanting a wrinkle finish soooo here it is
also got g60 steels for the winter but they tuck right in and disappear into the flared arches so they are now up for sale/ swaps...
with beetle hub caps that i was guna run all four are also up for sale...
I have never seen another set in th uk and have not been able to find out much info about them all the info i have is what the seller told me... but they are up for sale at the moment
ok a little wheel update
Found some porsche 928 wheels going for cheap round the corner from me so I went and picked them up today... they need to be stripped and refurbushed but they where going really cheap and ive always liked them
Then I swapped the G60 steels I had for these banded opel wheels
on 195 50 r15 brigestones with loads of thread left in them...
And now im confused so wheel recomendations welcome

I hope that helps and I’m glad you like it
Time for another update
The banded steels have been sold mainly because they are not wide enough for me. 7.5 and 8.5j just didn’t look right. In the future I hope to band the standard 14” steels that came on the car to 10j and 9j. I’ve also sold the 7j Porsche wheels and I’ve sourced another pair of 8j’s
They have been skimmed to remove the groves above the holes in the wheels I prefer this look and will be doing it to the other pair
And I shall be looking into getting them p slotted (that’s if I can find someone willing to do it)
As for the rest of the car bits have started coming back from the powder coaters
The rear engine mounts are by Flo-Flex and the rest of the car will polyurethane bushes throughout and everything powder coated gloss black.
And painted the last few body parts
be prepared for the poly haters to come knocking now....
love it, great work youre doing
