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!
