Dash bezel for the Rabbit = CarbonFiber
Little update, nothing serious, fixed my headlight switch, ordered a new one for 20.00 and swapped it out, and fixed some wiring that was split. Now my running lights work! No more getting pulled over
Changed the axle today because the boot was torn, and it was starting to vibrate a little, Warranty swap,
More carbon fiber work done by me to come, and brake line work.
Not really a update, got a new part in today Been trying to get my hands on one of these forever now, got it for 20.00 BAMMM!!!
I still need a RT Fender, RT Door, and Hood so let me know if you see any around in good condition.
I ordered a Polly Trans Mount from BFI so ill install that when it gets here
Some more problems with the rabbit, it likes to shut off at lights sometimes, I think I just need to tune it, not a big deal cause im going to swap the engine soon enough anyway
The steering has some play in it, so I need to get under it soon and check it out like 1/3 turn play, its annoying
I saw this on Top gear last night, they where doing a challenge and they where driving through cali in a taxi cab, and theres a nice 84 rabbit gti behind them, heres a picture
Ill add my GLi build to this Thread too. Two for one Special, just to show what Im up to.
So here it goes.
That Axle is a Raxle with a upgraded new longer Joint for slammed GLi's Marty hooked me up, and hopefully this takes care of all the vibration issues ive been happen
Powdercoat Wheels White
Its on 4 Jackstands right now downtown where im working on it, UNItronic is shipping my ECU back (STG 2 91 octane) Cant wait for that
More to come
Today Im going to finish changing the Oil, The drain plug was striped from the previous owner, Im going to install the driver side axle and then go give her a bath, May work on the GLi today too who knows, more to come in a few hours
Like I said, more of the GLi build:
Cleaning up the engine bay, painting, and putting new clamps on
Intalled Raxle and Cabin Air Filter
Today, Installing new t-bolt clamps, painting calipers, and starting on the wheels
More Pictures to come, The rabbit runs great, just need to swap mastercylinders!
I don't mind the look, but god I think it'd look soooo much better with these wheels polished.
OP I wish I could just fast forward to the build being complete. I was REALLLY hoping it would some how be waaay more progressed at the end of this page lol.
Went to UPS and picked up my ecu, Installed it, and let it idle for a minute, I could tell it started better, and the idle was nice and steady, I cant wait to get this on the road, I might put it on steel wheels just to drive it for a week. ha.
New master cylinder came in for the Rabbit Cant wait to install it, and start driving the rabbit again.
The wife and I did some carbon fiber work tonight, covered this Decided to do it because the fabric was falling off, and I tried to glue it back up and it turned out ****ty, I was going to cover it in some new fabric but everyone does that, so I made it carbon fiber, just need put another coat of resin on it, and then clear coat/polish!! Stay tuned to see the finished product, and then I may make the two pieces I made for the rabbit a while back have more 'shine' im still learning as I go on, and getting better and better at laying it.
but now the rabbit wont hold a idle after I changed that master cylinder, so I gotta retrace my steps,
its a never ending headache with all my cars lol
two wheels on with tires. Now just gotta paint the other two.
going to paint the tow hook white, and front vw emblem.
o yeah and new stickers for both cars
just doing little things right now to keep me busy
