Nice work man, looks really clean! Don't lower it, looks good as is
This car has been "ready to drive" for a month or better.. it has been illegal to drive for longer.. I finally got to put a couple hundred miles on it this weekend. I should have done this a long time ago......
1985 Westy Golf GL Base model
Leak free sunroof - (non sunroof car)
Roll up windows
3 speed wipers
8v power plant
Thats about the list of its "options"
03 24v GTI Engine,
93 SLC Rado trans
98 ABA GTI K frame,
Full ABA GTI disc swap
FT & RR Neuspeed swaybars
Recaro Flat Bolster seats
2.5 Borla/TT exhaust
Thats about it, New parts from axles out to hubs, cleaned up some trim, hunted a few "westy" parts, dusted off the Turbos, took us about 6 months from dropping it off to paint till today..
Love it hate it, whatever, this thing is fun to drive.. no im not lowering it..
Big thanks to SR83 for its "Glam photos"
The black jetta is 12v dizzy swap shrick manifold, customer car that we finished last year.
Rest of its pics are here
Ill add some regular pictures later...
simple, yet exotic...i f'in love it
This car is amazing man, there is absolutely NO reason at all to lower it! Awesome ride height, awesome car!!
What the hell is stance?
-1986 MK2 GTI. Big bumpers and door conversions. Quad round grille. One-piece BBS rims. Going for the OEM style I hate dubstep/todays music, I hate slamming cars, I hate widening wheels, stretching tires, and I hate unnecessary subwoofers, what now? My MK2
I am waiting on a friend of mine to come down and chase my friend in his 24v rado and my 24v, through tunnels, underpasses, ect...
The car is an NA rocket, you know how much fun a 12v mk2 is, this literally is 2x the fun. Its considerably faster than a 12v mk2, even that shricked mk2.
I am going to get a couple more pictures later in the week. I am not sure when my videographer will be here.
Had a great time going to and from sowo in this car.
Had it weighed before we left. Fully fueled, no driver, 2250lbs.
Specs on an 85-87 golf in base trim like mine says it was 2375 lbs. I am missing the boat anchor bumpers, i have slightly lighter seats, no ac parts, no radio parts, no power steering, that's about all I have cut out. Running mk3 brakes and coils, but it is a full interior.
love it, not sure Id want to slam it, but maybe lower it a little more?
Sounds good, I am planning on driving it if I dont have time to finish the DC, (which I havent spent anytime on in 2 months)
Ill see if I can get the info on the mk2 meet..
