      Well I haven't had an VW daily driver for the past 2 years and I decided to change that. So I traded some parts for a Corrado.

      I got it looking like this.



      First thing was first, got rid of the stock shocks with ebay sleeve overs.


      Second thing I did was get rid of the RS front bumper for a stock SLC one.




      Then I traded my friend some wheels for these Corvette Saladshooters.


      I started shaving the bay soon after.







      Somewhere in there, we started pulling the fenders




      Then an test panel got sprayed to see if I liked the color.



      Then we sprayed the bay

      [img]IMG_7696[/img]
      IMG_7710




      Tight Fit


      And what the bay looks like today


      Still not finished obviously, need to paint the valve cover and intake manifold and get the radiator and coolant lines figured out.

      Also, I am swapping to OBD2 since the motor is out of my Gti and freshly rebuild and patiently awaiting boost(again).

      And A HUGE thank you to Jason(I Like Primer) and Dustin(Yetta 4x4) for all of the help so far!

      Still working on the wiring and trying to get the car running. But it's being a pain in the ass since the previous owner decided to cut the wiring harness at the firewall.

      Thanks, still need to dial the stance in, but my main priority is getting it running. Then I'll worry about the stance and exterior paint.

      There are a ton of swap writeups (FAQ & CCC) and if you wanted a VR, maybe should have "purchased" the VR

      i would have bought a vr if i would have known about the vr when i bought mine. I was very new to this Volkswagen thing and didnt know engine options at the time. now i am more educated on the subject and if my rado didnt have 300,000 miles on it id sell it right now and get a vr hah, but its been a learning experiance

      I'm interested to know why you have no ecu power. Post it when you find out, I'm sure you would anyway though
      Long hot but isn't there an ecu power relay?
