Looking great man! Can't wait to see it all painted up with those wheels
Looks like a promising build, I'm in for the end

Made some progress today, got the drivers door removed and stripped of seals, glass, wiring, etc. Got it straightened out, and ready for primer. I took a few pictures, but they don't show too much so I won't bore you guys with them. All I have left to do on the shell is straighten the rockers and it will be ready for epoxy.
I also picked up a Cabrio trunk lid for the trunk recess and emblem, hopefully getting started on that soon.
Thanks for the support guys.
If I Remember Correctly (IIRC) the hoods were $30, and all VW dealers. They're blowing them out because "nobody" drives Mk3s any more. A/C clutch for VR6, normally ~$450--> mine for $60. Makes me wonder what else they have that they are blowing out. Awesome stuff Darren. It'll look great.
PS: I may want the engine bay shot ~soon.
Got a little work done yesterday.
Buttoned up the fenders, got them flared how I want, they're ready for primer now.
And started to tack my Cabrio plate recess into the hatch. Pretty excited that the trunk lid I got came with a mint VW emblem, which fits the Golf hatch perfectly, so I don't need to worry about finding a new emblem. Also, the wiper hole will be welded up soon.
In her current state.
Can't wait until she is in paint!
My plan was to shave it as well, I really don't need it to work since I have the popper.
But a little update, I shaved the wiper hole, and finished up my welds around the plate. Just need to do a little finishing with a hammer and dolly and get it smoothed out.
