      I would almost take this thing over my 20th year

      Love everything about it, especially those turn signals, look so dope.
      A white top would look pretty unique but it would get dirty real quick.
      Props.

      Yeah black would be easiest to keep looking clean. Doesnt actually have to be clean haha
      white on white with the wheels and painting the rest teal is what I would do...

      Keep up the good work!

      Ahhhh this car is so clean. I recently added a duckbill and custom blinkers to my cabby I'm debating what to run stance wise though =\ your running chopped springs? How much did you cut off?

      Nice work man, I for one like it. I love the turn signals. If it weren't for the cops around here I'd shave the bumper on my MK1 but I'd probably get pulled over and harassed so I may go for a clipper kit or something similar.

      Wont bolt on.

      Side exit is going to be loud. Buddy of mine has one on an E21 and even with a turbo in the way it's annoyingly loud. Mostly a function of the inability to run a reasonable resonator/muffler/combo.

      You deserve a medal for saving that poor car.
      Who would abuse a Cabby like that?

      Two ways I could take that.
      Maybe you thought I meant you, and not the previous owner.
      Or maybe you are being sarcastic and meant that as a joke.
      If you don't think that car was abused based on the way it looked in the first photos, you need serious help.
