Damn that looks good
i was going through some old pictures today and thought i'd post them up.
i bought this car last may, so its been almost a year and a half. been through a lot with it, and theres way more to come. i've had a ton of problems with the car and i'm a broke 19 yr old, which doesnt help at all. anyways, here's some pictures from the last year and half.
a few weeks after i purchased the car.
got into an accident after owning the car for a month, so i decided to do a jetta front.
one the way to the junkyard to cop a jetta hood.
got the front end back together, didnt have money for real paint of course, and i live in florida, so we all know what that means...
then i picked up some leathers and got rid of those hideous grey cloth seats. and if you couldnt tell, the red spray bomb looked liked ****, so i had to switch it up. the nutmeg came out a little better but it still looked like ****, but i rocked it for a while.
after a few months of enjoying the car, this **** happens.
put the steelies on :-/
more **** broke.
and then the work began, fixing the rear quarter, shaving the hatch, and painting the car hot rod flatz vintage burgandy pearl.
sanding down 2 layers of spraypaint and half a layer of primer was not fun...
before i could finish painting the car, i had to swap in a new aba.
and all back together...
then the car got sprayed.
and right after that i picked up a set of shooters for $80 and spent $120 on getting them powdercoated super gloss white.
this was like christmas...
and then i finally got the car put back together, and got the wheels on.
went lower and pushed the camber in. bad idea.
put a scirocco 16 valve axle in there and that solved the problem. got an alignment.
and this is where it sits now...
now that you've wasted a few minutes lookin through all these stupid pics of this busted ass car, you're pissed off. i apologize.
