Got armor door plates to cover the small rust spots
And tried to wash it the other day, I don't think it did much good. Managed to scrub some of the green gunk off.
And put all the plastic bits back on after a bit of cleaning.
nice nick looking good keep up the good work. yeah you might not see my fox around the block for some time blew out my gasket from the manifold to the turbo the stainless steel gasket cracked. the new one will be here on the 23 of this month
it's a simple fix but take about 2 hours to put in
so when are you going to turbo the jetta
hey man were the hell are your updated im waiting
Not a lot has happened, as far as mods. It melted in July. I fixed it, it broke. I tried to fix it again. Failed....
And now it runs again. Needed a new WUR and I broke a wire replacing the fuse box that made it not run after that. Saving up for suspension now.
I also scored some 15x7 enkei 92 I am going to refinish, and a set of Recaro trophys for $150 from a garage sale in awesome condition.
dam that is alot of head ache keep up the work. oh did you move cause i don't see your jetta at your house anymore. or am i just driving buy at the wrong time.
nice on your own now. im still living with my parent's don't wanna move out for a couple more years plus the fox is expensive to maintane if it breaks turbo cars can be a bitch
just keep at it you'll do fine. just make shure you have something to fall back on.
so how is the jetta doing. and hey ever nead help on the car im just down the road
Guess I haven't updated this in a while.
Here are some pictures.
Scored these at a garage sale for $150, super clean
Out with the old,in with the new.
Test fit of some new shoes. They are going to be a tight fit with the offset.
Got it a bit lower for now.
Had a little issue... stupid helper springs and poor alignment.
Finally got a day of sun here in WA for a quick wash.

Picked this up over the weekend. GTI 1.8 8v supposedly with a g-grind cam in it and an external oil cooler and transmission for $150!
I plan on doing a slight build with it. So far it will be getting a port and polish with some better valve springs and maybe a bigger cam.
