      And I should have some updates soon, as the body is almost ready for primer. Shooting an epoxy followed by a high build urethane.

      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 hope some progress is being made because it's looking pretty good that a certain hybrid car will be ready to come your way this summer.

      I believe it was made by Racecraft. I'm going to have a T3 flange welded on soon, since I plan on running a Precision turbo instead of the GT30 this thing is v-banded for.

      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!

      Looks good man! Did you shave the button on the plinth above the plate recess as well?

      Yes. Just used the popper in the center console. If you do that you will need to make some modifications to the popper location etc.

      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.

      Gotcha. Ya, when you take that lock out, it'll stop the popping feature since the linkage connects to it..I'll snap a pic when I get home how I did it.
