Well in September I picked up a BMP 20th GTI. Had a mere 69K miles.
Her is what she looked like then:
My first plans were to get rid of the pink headlights and pink roof. Well they kind of got put on hold when the trans broke the third gear fork. So apart she came.
And well today I just got her back on the road after sitting for about 4.5 months. I have sold the Pink headlights and picked up a set of these:
not these exact ones but ones very similar.
Current project now that she is fixed is, redoing the hood, and re painting the roof. Once those are done I can start to work on the other little things that need to be fixed. I only have about 4 weeks to do everything since the car will be getting shipped to Italy. Why Italy? I am in the Army and just got orders there. I can't wait.
Current plans other than the roof are:
-get 225/40/18 tires
-get an alignment
-raise the rear up for shipping (front is already raised)
-Fix the intercooler piping
-Start saving money for air
-start saving money for better wheels
-Get the driver side Recaro fixed
-pick up an unmolested Front bumper and 20th lip
-Get a muffler with a single 3.5 inch tip instead of the dual 3 inch jetta tip
-Take off the crappy tint
-Hope to god the tranny holds up.
