Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. Been looking around these parts for a while gathering info and just can't get away from the mk3 forum .
Anyways, my names Mario and heres my sort of ongoing progression thread.
This here was my first car, a 98 Golf Wolfsburg Edition.
I looked into selling it, but decided i couldn't let her go. So i drove her as it was and kept saving up until i can buy myself something newer.
Oddly enough i bought a slightly older car, came across this low km beauty for a great price. A 97' GTI VR6 "Concept Series" in Windsor blue
The day the deal was made..
When i came to pick the car up the next day, the seller had filled the trunk and back seats with a lot of rare goodies. Pictured here.. (Eibach Round Strut Bar, Momo Ferrari wheels, racks, dual rounds, etc.)
The car didn't need much work other then new ebrake cables, a coil pack, and rear brakes.
Got to work on refinishing the hell dual rounds that were given, and yes those are REAL Hella Smoked Ecodes.
In the meantime tossed the racks on there, and drove her to my dads shop.
Picked up a set of tires to go along with the de's i picked up locally, and a set of clear hella magic colours.
Threw some amber turns at it..
I have full access to a cnc machine shop so why not abuse it, right? Got to work on a 2.9l clone.
I don't have finished pics of it welded, but it was so easy i made another one.
Drove down to Ottawa to pick up this beauty to replace the only rusted part on the car, the dreaded hatch. Needs to be painted, and wiper and emblem shaved.
Finally got around to getting the bezels and grille painted, and was able to put the dual rounds on.
Found out that my grandma is coming to visit from europe next monday, so i quickly found her the part number for this seat lip to bring for me.
Ive been looking for that right set of wheels for a while, and suddenly lucked out with these for a great price..
2 pc Autostrada modena's.
This is where I'm left. Tires need to be dismounted. And my plans include, powder coated gloss white centres, chromed bolts and hex caps, with a polished lip on some 205/40 512s.
