      well.. i have owned this car in the past. Some of you may have seen it when the former owner had it SLAMMED on 13x8 ATS classics, with the full racing stripe. I havnt done much to the car yet.

      I found an internal headgasket leak, and the valve seals decided to give way. I almost lost motivation and gave up. But due to a great tax return, new love was found so i started gathering parts to rebuild the smurf mobile LA5T jetta. The body isnt perfect, but **** lookin pretty. I take no credit for the front end set up, or really anything as of yet. Soon however ill be calling it MINE again. Onto pics yo!

      Day after i bough it.



      wheels i bought yesterday, tires are toast.



      Time for sandblasting?



      cleaning after work today:





      and, the new motor. JH/ABA hybrid. just need to get some motor mounts, fluids, a header and a block off plate and she will be in very soon. oh, and a new clutch.



      cheers for viewing!

      is there anything i need to know about doing the JH/ABA swap on Digi2? I see lots of builds out there, but people seem to be running them on CIS (mk1's) or with Carbs.. which doesnt help wither. I think i have almost everything for the swap... any extra info would be AWESOME.

      thanks!

      well, a good friend of mine wanted to do a small photoshoot of the Smurf a few days ago. So, here are a few teasers (more pictures available on his Flickr - Ajax.Photog )

      I hope you enjoy!
