profit? just fixing to sell?
Maybe a brisk walk will do.
Lets get a baseline going here:
Bought the car yesterday for basically nothing. 250k on body, 150k on motor/tranny/turbo from a replace under warranty. Sport suspension, pleather, sport wheel, tip, a bunch of stuff spray painted black, a couple of questionable badges, and very questionable headlights.
Day 1 | Assess, and clean:
Previous owner had a big ass dog that apparently was not shy about tasting the snozberry flavored back windows. As well, it inevitably shed like it was it's job. So I started by tearing out all the seats, and doing some serious vacuuming.
What 'chu know about removing stains?!
Some shots of the interior
And some things
So that is where it currently sits. Tomorrow I will continue the cleaning, and start on the emblems etc.
To Do List (in order):
-Remove German flag badges
-Bring grille surround and front rings back to silver
-Fender and Door (respray whole left side)
-Mirror (respray both mirrors body colour)
-Change out headlights to OEM with clear turns
-Wheels/tires (RC's on 205/45's)
Be back tomorrow with some progress.
I did get it for a great price, and it seems to be a wonderful base. Though automatic (which, being a manual driving from the beginning, doesn't bother me too much, as I still have the Golf), I have yet to find rust anywhere on the car, and it's very clean.
Once a few loose ends get tied up it should be lookin proper.
Increased my bug to paint ratio on the front bumper.
Mirrors, coil cover, door, and fender are in paint. Car will go in for hood, left side and rear bumper respray in a couple weeks.
Coils are coming once I stop spending money on photo and video equipment
Front spacers are waiting, rears are the same story as the coils.
Figured I would update this as best I could Photos and better updates to come when things actually start happening.
I found the thread, but there are 2 problems;
1. He used a Dremel, which I don't really want to do,
and more importantly;
2. The picture of how he cut it is dead
As it sits, around an inch off the ground at it's lowest points (in and around that). Geoff may able to say the GTF...I can't remember what the car was before it settled. It's a little bouncy this far down, but I guess that is to be expected.
