My OEM+ build thread with a twist: Einkaufswagen's Build
Cars Owned: 1999.5 Jetta VR6 GLS, 2000 Jetta VR6 GLX, 2001 Jetta VR6 GLX, 2001 Jetta VR6 GLX, 2004 Jetta GLI 1.8T, 2000 GTI 1.8T, 2004 Jetta GLI 1.8T,
got my car back from NGP today. Had them do my timing chains, cams, and clutch. Would have love to do it myself but didn't have the time to do it before H2Oi . Never made it to paint but i guess that will just have to wait until after the show. See everyone at H2Oi
wow didn't know anyone still kept up with this thread. Ive done a few small changes here and there. I guess I haven't updated this thread because I want to finish the car before posting any pics. I don't have any recent pics so ill just leave you with these
GLI Calipers w/ Adam Rotors
Reupholster headliners & pillars
a new look for my wheels
last pic i took of the car back in january
Haven't really updated this thread for a while so heres what ive been up to
passat aluminum ring gauge cluster and face mod
picked up a set of GLI calipers. Still haven't finished painting all of them yet. And why not a new set of Adams Rotors
and a recent pic i took with my new DSLR
more to come
So it has been a while since i updated this thread. And I have gotten enough done to post for a decent update. I got back from vacation a week before H2Oi with my headliner and pillars stripped and no fabric. Wheels still needed tires put on and balanced. With the help of a couple friends I managed to get the wheels some rubber, with no air leaks (first time rebuilding multi-piece wheels)the headliner was done the night before we headed out to OC. I have to say im pretty happy with the how came it out.
