      My inspiration for this build comes from a cabrio built by 1552 back in Oct 1998 issue of PVW. They called it the silver shadow. I've been wanted to build this car for about 10 years. So finally I'm back in a MK3.

      I'm not going to build an exact replica of it. It will have an abt/BBR widebody kit on it and some ABT goodies.

      And Project Mayhem begins.



      starting the installation of the front flares.



      need to cut the rocker panel to fit these fenders

      theirs some mad prep need on these fenders before any paint. The mold quality isn't that great.


      gaps need to be fixed



      and the rear wheel

      The thick rockers are on a cabrio to support the frame, you'd be better off cutting the fenders.

      The rocker panel reinforcement is the intack I'm just cutting the side skirt skin off and will be notching it to fit the fender. No compromise to the integrity at all.
