      UPDATE: how it sits now:

      Side Shot by Mk4Wilk, on Flickr
      New wheels and ish on page 5

      Can't call it a build, cus theres no serious work going on. Figured i'd be like everyone else and make a thread of my car and whats been done. I take pictures of EVERYTHING i do to the car so bare with me....

      Day 1...summer 09, deal was i pay it off, then i can start working on it.


      a week later went at this bish

      then...before:


      after:

      They needed a good cleaning


      Smoked the sides


      brushed emblems

      Then came a mistake...




      half joey mod


      painted wheels, textured rubs


      Forge inlet, 007 dv, and CAI---excuse the dirty bay


      VDO boost guage


      Then came snow


      Then came ice...and mk3 tires on a mk4....gotta love it (not really)


      the shifter like 2 1/2 inches and started some interior stuff.


      moarr


      then this......


      to this...


      added a fk badgless notch filler is somewhat temporary...wont have the money for body work for a little while...untill then i am pleased.


      with a short break in the cold weather got my tsudo turbo back installed...real happy

      ultimos are waiting to be put on a long with a few other things...jus waiting for the weather to get a little warmer.

      wheels are going to be refinished...not black lol

      ill update as i go a long
