      I startet my life as a 1,6 in April 84" But then a Crasy Dane found me in germany with a price tag of 100 euro... He then took me back with him to Denmark and took me apart...

      Plan with the car,is that the engine is to be swabt with a TD from a Passat from 96...(was free an only 34k miles) and completly respray in NimbusGrey.... seats have been modyfide from a Audi A3 from 98...

      Some pic's of the Projekt so far.....

      the seats are awsome, how much did you had to modify them to fit?
      I do work on cars, anything short of engine and transmission rebuilding can be done. welding, custom and aftermarket as well as regular repairs. IM me for details, shop is in WOodbridge.

      I had too cut and weld one of the "legs" of the seats... take some pic's later to show you... and then cut of the front bracket on welded a plate in 4mm with 2 holes in it to hold the seat,,,, took me 30 mins per side.... the rear seat was a diffrent story... A frame has been made to give me a Audi look(dobbel trunk) where the mounts for the top of ter seat is..... the bottom seat took 5 min to install... 4 smal tubes have welded to hold it...

      would like to see where this goes
      I'll be honest, not the biggest fan of the colors on the engine. But i'm sure the finish product will look very nice. Very pleased to see that you picked a TD though

      It's gunna be replayst with a TDI or PD TDI in like 2 years.... The reson whey I put a TD in it is that petrol is 8,90 Dollars gallon in Denmark... Diesel is ca 7,60 Dollars a gallon... plus 150 bhp is easy to get on those engines...
