So, ive decided to do a build thread to keep my progress documented and hopefully get some suggestions on things... so here it goes
bought my first VW, 89 jetta 8v w/ 88k miles on the clock for $500 floors were mint but the rear arches and rockers were going...
First was to correct the beat-up front end... so i bought a parts car, strut towers and floors junk.
Front end coming apart: it was pouring out!
All Done: Big bumper conversion aswell
then i got ambitous and tackled the rear arches and rocker....
Sand blasting HQ:
but i felt it was too much time/money to repair [i hate myslef everyday for what i did next....]
Got it back after repair qoute this is how i drove it home 25 miles...
I wasnt letting anything go to waste.
In the meantime of repairing the jetta, i bought a gti for a planned vr6 swap... haha didnt get very far:
got it into my stepdads barn, tor her apart then she sat.
floors when i first got the carpet up:
once i decided the jetta was out of the game i needed a new car, in came my almost no rust at all jetta coupe
so i swapped everything from 89 jetta into the coupe....
and ended up with this for a while:
but once winter came, i wanted to prepare for the coupes true overhual.
...but i had to do something with the gti because only one space in the barn was mine, so the gti needed to be delt with. Thats about where i am, the coupe is in the driveway under a tarp and snow and the gti has the 8v from the coupe along with every other under car parts installed or partially installed, and im working on fixing the rusted floors...
