      Hopefully, which car do you plan on bringing?

      I'm probably going to cut a few corners on my engine bay so I can finally drive my car. I figure I can always re-do it next winter if it bothers me enough but at this point and time I'd much rather hop in my gti and get 25+ mpg and have fun driving instead of get in the boring, money-pit zr2 and get 14 mpg babying it. Plus now that it's getting nicer out and peoples' cars are coming out is making me get the itch to drive mine

      This year it will be the 2...well it better be. I have to get new hard lines, fuel injections lines, fuel pump and a subframe but that can be done little by little. Getting some body work done at the moment which should be done this week. Hopefully the guy does a good job, but we'll see.

      Took a quick picture of underneath and one of where I'm at with the engine bay.

      Hopefully by the end of next week the engine bay is done with primer. I need to go to a paint store and see if they can find the color of my car so I can pick up some paint. All I know is that it is a PPG brand of paint and next to tornado red it is pretty different.

      Rushed the bay this week & got it finished. I wanted a textured finish to hide as much as I could and get my car on the road asap I miss the sound of it so much.

      Anyways on to the pics, I should of taken a bit more time in a few places but if it bothers me enough it can always be done down the road.





      I have to respray my subframe this weekend and finish prepping my windshield frame for paint whenever I get to that. Also want to order a few parts before I put my engine in so hopefully I can do that within a few weeks.

      Thanks, I still have a few things do to before the car is back on the road.

      - Order new tie rods, a few exhaust gaskets and the corresponding hardware, brake lines, a windshield and seal.

      - Finish the body work on the lower windshield frame and paint it.

      - Clean up engine/ trans and install everything.

      I'll finish up the Rs's in between everything and order tires once the car has been on the road for awhile and all the bugs are worked out. I plan on refreshing up the faces and polishing everything 100% next winter.

      I'll let you know as I plan on doing it myself, I already have a windshield but need to pick up a new seal.

      Anybody have input on a windshield seal? I'm either going to get one from NashTdi or one from MK1autohaus on ebay. Any input?

      So I ordered some parts from GAP on Friday and today I finished my windshield frame. Really happy with how it turned out seeing as how I have 0 auto body/paint experience. The color seems perfect so far I just want to wet sand it tomorrow and give it a final coat.

      In primer

      Wet sanded

      Paint

      looking pretty good. You'll be able to tell how close the paint matches when it's all back together in the sun. It's not a very big part though so even if it's off a little it won't be very noticeable.

      I just got mine resprayed as well
