      I wish I had a detached garage. Then no one could hear me swear and throw tools

      I'm in the same boat as you, my car is on a battle with rust and losing quickly. But I've got some plans

      90% of the mk3s around are in a battle with rust and losing quickly haha, mine also being one of them .

      looks like your project is coming along nicely bluntman, looking forward to see the final product

      actually it is i was scared ****-less when i striped my car and questioned my sanity on building up this shell..iam no mechanic..but iam handy with the tools , and have amazed myself at how quick and trouble free everything is going together(removing the auto pedal cluster was a bastard and putting in the manual one was even more so) but iam loving every minute of it now and learning the intimate secrets of the MK3 make-up lol

      cheers everyon and thx for the positive comments

      haha big up date

      heres one door card done.....ill have the rest done tomorrow along with the complete interior done and sunroof changed..then i just need to do 3 brake lines , zip tie tie-rod boots then i can fit the motor in and install my exhaust





      next





      and this



      so i decided to wire up my city lights(tied int daytime running lights) and jump my 110 relay with a 30Amp relay so i will be able to have city light's w/fogs , daytime running lights w/fogs and high and low beams w/fogs


      but 1st i need to disable DRL here's how

      To disable DRLs, many people say to cut the single yellow wire behind the fuse panel to disengage DRLs. That works, but since we are in there, all you have to do is disconnect it from the connector. Therefore, if you want them back in the future, all you have to do is plug it back in rather than solder.





      Then replace this relay(will enable all fog light options) with a jumper or the correct way and use a
      12VDC/30A SPST Automotive Relay Model: 275-226 | Catalog #: 275-226
      which u can buy at the source or CT
      Pictured here



      here's a pic of stuff needed(the bulbs are amber bulbs to use as city lights instead of the whites supplied)




      then i may install the rear fog light as well :wink:

      The rear fog is pretty simple to install as well. Just have to drill out the back of the taillight. Very useful when you have someone riding your a** so close you can't even see their headlights. Give them a little warning shot

      Dutchsider:
      God damn these f*cking Mexican built rust boxes

      Such nice cars for the money, but the quality control is showing with age


      Same boat here, Luckily I bought my car rust free but I don't have a garage so even though I don't drive it in the summer, it still sit's outside year round and some rust is starting to develop within the last few years sitting outside now 24/7. I need to find a garage so I can tear it down, build a rotisserie, and compleatly strip and por-15 and recoat the wells and underbody. Damn mexi-german made junk...
      Yeah Right!
