      I bet you $1000 your car has major rust on it, but it's cool. I'm from Chicago. I know what it's like to jack up a rocker that is mostly rust. It's not a good thing

      But anyways.

      Aren't all vws money pits? And it's not as bad as it looks. I haven't spent much money on it so far. And when I sell it, it's all profit

      Cars out here go for more than back east.

      Been following since you first posted this thread. Didn't think much of the car, might have been better to find something cleaner. But not that I'm seeing progress, it's coming together and you are definitely putting the work in. Bloody fingers and all. I have faith in you. Keep doing what you're doing bro.

      I got it used. Just pressure washed it. Still need to shampoo the interior. Also, my ecode harness came in today. So I gotta throw some lights in and wire the bish up. Gonna wire up my rear fog too

      I find it funny that people think the car is such a pile of shlt when all they are goin off of are a couple pictures of the PO's JDM dream lol Ya the car was a bit rough but considering the car was traded for an east coast rust rabbit, all the money goin into this car is all for upgrades! In other words he didnt have to pay $1100 for a car and then start throwing money at it for upgrades, but hey..... haters gonna hate

      I've ha like 3 hours a day to do work. It sucks but I'm really surprised I've made it this far in this short time. I'm glad I have some good friends to help out

      And every mk3 I've had(except minty) has been swapped or has had black. It is a must for me cuz who really likes tan?

      I wish I still had a pic of my daily before unricing it from the previous owner. Perfect motivation for this car haha.

      Cliffs: Checkerboard spraypainted hood. Melted ebay head lights. 2.0 auto. Trashed Gl interior. Dents on 75% of panels, and oxidized paint. Grill from a jetta, cut to fit Golf lights. Ebay flip up headunit stuck up, you get the point.



      Think of it as a blank canvas that you can build from exactly how you want, since everything needs replaced anyways. That was my thought the whole time.

      I got faith in this one being saved.

      Personaly I think its fun to take a total pile and and do a complete 180 on it! There is a certain satasfaction you get from the before and after! This is a fun build and I'm stoked I can be a part of it!
