Hello MKI owners. I would first like to say that the cars on this forum are humbling, and are the motivation I need to keep moving in a forward direction on my own car. My daily is a MKV GLI, but I have wanted a MKI since high school(circa 2001)when me and my buddy drove the wheels off his 4 door Westy diesal My chance to fulfill this desire came in Febuary of this year. My wife---knowing full well my craving for MKI-goodness, facilitated the purchase of my new baby.....my 1988 cabby
I snagged her, running--for $800. She was in OK shape, but had numorous issues. Having a solid daily, and having waited a LONG time to own a MKI---I decided that instead of putting her on the road strait away, I would try and make this car the way I truely wanted it to be........clean, quick, and classy. Wheather I ultimately succeed in the above is yet to be seen.... I will say that having jumped in with both feet----with little MKI knowledge, I do feel in over my head a tad. Anywho, a few progress pics........
