I've been working on this for a while now. Wasn't going to create a project thread until it was done as my progress has been slow. I think there is enough to keep everyone interested for a bit. I was shooting for SOWO, but with work and home projects, I have pushed my goal back to Motorstadt 8
I bought the car a few years back as a driver while my Audi was down. It was in great shape and a California car with no rust to speak of. Unheard of in MI. 1.8l 3 speed auto.
I swapped over a Westy grill, lights and support to replace the 12 bar and spent aeros, threw on a set of Vmaxx I had sitting around and Helios interior. I cleaned the car up a bit, swapped the black dash pieces for blue and rocked it like that for a while.
I started to really enjoying the car even with the auto. I had never driven a MKII auto before and they are actually quite fun. As fun as it was, I still liked rowing the gears and just happened to have everything for a 5 speed swap in the garage. As soon as the Audi was back on the road, I brought the car back in, repainted all the black trim and bumpers, swapped in the 5 speed, gave it a good waxing and threw some borrowed Panasports on.
This is how she looked at Motorstadt 6
A friend was moving to Texas and needed to dump some of the stuff he collected oever the years. Can't pass up a good low mileage ABA
I tore it down to clean and freshen up with new gaskets and such. I rewired the engine side harness to come out the front of the motor while this was happening.
Spent alot of time in here poking away at stuff
Time to pull the old lump. She was a good runner, but it was time to go
Before pic of the engine bay
More coming, time to save.
