      Great work so far. Keep it up!

      Im going to have to do the same thing. probably have more rust than that.

      What made you decide to relocate the ECU? Not that i think its a bad thing, id think its pretty smart to get it out of the rain tray just dont see many people doing it.

      Go figure, someone in here is actually doing work, and people have to try and talk sh!t.

      If the so called build isn't just bolting on coils and 9" wide wheels so it looks childish, on a rusted out faded paint beater, and then acting like its a show car, then it's not for the Vortex.



      Not my style in anyway, and that interior is just beyond gaudy, but for actually doing work.

      That headliner is barftastic. Golf front on a Jetta blows. Bozer hoods haven't been cool since about '05.

      But it's your car, and I think you'll definitely "finish" it. (They're never finished.) Enjoy the 'tex hate. Keep up the work.

      Who cares what people think anyways? just do what you do man. Its actually nice to see a young guy doing all the "real" fab work on your car. Good for you. I think you are well on your way to a fun car that YOU created. GL.

      If it's a mk3, that's about the only option.
