im starting a build thread for my rabbit, im out of school and have a real job now so its time to re-do the daily
this is how i got it a little under a year ago
then i threw out the unevenly cut springs, bought some racelands, gave it a little "character" and drove it like that for a while
got tired of getting pulled over all the time so i painted the whole thing and put on some bottlecaps
and it worked, surprisingly.
but now its time to fix the rust, shave the bay, paint it for real, new engine, seal it up, and maybe get some better suspension, depending on the my funds at the end of all this
day 1 i stripped out the interior and the wiring
no rust here yay!
day 2 got the fenders off found some rust , pulled the front suspension, cleaned up the wells a little, and would have dropped the motor but i got my hoist back from a friend with no pins to hold the legs on so it going to have to wait till tomorrow
for the color I'm going Wimbledon white, always loved that color. was also thinking about doing some subtle OEM styled accent striping kind of like the ones on the CAT rabbit
im building an ABA for it on the side, little teaser of that
plans for that are high comp pistons, 276 TT cam, high rev springs, dual 40 webbers, TT high flow valves and guides, half a mil over exhaust valves (just cause they were out of stock size) not sure on what trans yet still doing my research for that
thats it for now thanks for reading.
updates as they happen...
