      I picked this car up at the end of November and it was a complete shell there was nothing to it. it was missing pretty much everything. interior harness was gone, fuel tank, fuel lines, brake, and brake lines.

      it is a pretty clean shell other then the key marks on the side. and the rusted driver side floor.

      so here are the plans:

      interior: convert it from ce1 to ce2.. mk2 dash, recaro door cards, corrado front and rear cloth seats, corrado steering wheel.

      Engine bay/motor i am in the process of shaving the bay(nothing to crazy).. with a slight wire tuck.
      EDITi picked up a vr6 about a 2 days ago with around 130k on it. which i the deleted power steering pump, and ac compressor. i am polishing the intake manifold at the moment.

      exterior small bumpers front and back with 16v lip. big trim, 8v fender flares, Ronal r8 wheels 4x100 and then eventually a respray at some point because roof is faded and key marks on driver side.

      thanks for looking

      Probably the best solution is to cut off whole area which is seen in picture and replace it with a new sheet of steel, or get a donor part.
