finally got me the 83 rabbit gti 1.8 8v that i have wanted for a longg time
traded my old 88 jeep comanche 4x4 for this
well they are the same cars i fiberglass bondo-d the body line to blend to a point.. havent seen it done b4 so i figured id do it.. and i would like to eventually drop a vr in it. i also have a supercharged 8v engine i could put in. havent really decided yet my money situation isnt quite where it needs to be yet due to going to school and all. i can only think of a couple people round here in the oakland county that own mk1's. the mechanic that taught me has a 84 diesel L flat black. gotta love those diesels. i need to make some connections in the area for ppl with vdubs, i would like to truely be a part of the community.
i also had the bumper off because i took the absorbers out as u can see and welded up some solid mounts out of angle iron and shortened it to sit closer to the car. ill post some pics in the morning. also made a y pipe and it has dual magnaflow tips looks nice
dude next time my car gets dirty (or dusty) i'll remember to draw some boobs on the rear windshield
thank you for inspiration
(no comment on the rest of the actual drawing....)
decided to do some caliper rebuilding because they were seized..
did some media blasting and refurbishing work
all painted up with some high temp paint
planing on blasting my dust covers on my brakes and having them zinc plated soon as well as some new brakes... i also need to figure out how to re size my photos using photobucket...
red calipers is the shiz
my 81 are red too
more and more parts cleaning.. tore out my rabbit head liner today.. plans to add some lighting and some sound mat.. can an ipad be compatable with megasquirt? would be nice to build one into the dash for music, tuning ect..
Love the car...been looking at MK I GTI's...been thinking about doing one as a rallyish type build. This is about what I'd want mine to look like.
What are the wheels?
1980 Diesel 4 door Rabbit L - yellow one
1981 Diesel 4 door Rabbit - tan one
One or both soon to be among the living...
yea i love the mk1 rabbits, for me the less seams in a body the better it looks to a point, and the wheels are ASA 16".. and the paint is actually a VHT 900 deg brake caliper clear.. hard to find in stores i find its the only one that works fairly well.. funny story she just blew a fuel line so im taking her off insurance and going to start the tear down so subscribe and enjoy my journey with me guys.. thanks guys
changed my mind on the engine ect.. i decided that a 2.o is way to common... so either 2.5l turbo. awd.. subaru or rotary engine with rwd!! but any ways i started gutting the other day..
