    Thread: Imoldgregg's introduction/half @ss build thread

    1. 05-03-2012 08:15 AM #1
      So I've owned a bunch of mark2s a few mark3s but last August I got my first cabrio and just fell in love but unfortunately i totaled it on the way to h20 so I figured I go a little older and picked this up

      Wheels I picked up for it

      Springs I got from volksfest that I'm still not sure I wanna put on or not anyone have pics of a cabriolet with a 35mm drop? I really want coilovers so I might just wait :/

      I'll trade my wheels off for coilovers if anyone's interested thanks for looking

      Thanks I have the rest of the trim I just have to sorce some clips to put it all back on. The wheels were in extremely rough shape when I went for them but I wasn't goin to pass the up for the price. I still have 2 more to polish then I have to order tires I'm having a really tough time deciding on what size to run. The wheels are 13x6.5, I was thinking 185/60?

      That's a pretty decent cabby you have there! It looks pretty clean and free of rust. Should be a good project car

      And for the trim clips, go to MK1 autohaus on ebay. They have all the little clips and what not.
      Here's the link to the store:http://stores.ebay.com/mk1autohaus

      And for the Vogtland springs, I've seen a mix of things with lowering springs that have a drop of 35 to 40mm. I've only seen two cars (both cabbys) with Vogtland lowering springs.



      And



      For all I know, they are so similar, it could be the same car with different wheels haha.

      But I would say the Vogtland's drop is definitely more than what they say it is. That's not a bad thing, but if you want coilovers, I would just sell the springs and go for the coils unless you like what you see in the pics. At least with coils you wont really have to worry about your car not sitting the way your want it to.

      I'm pretty sure that I went a little over board with this one it looks to much better than the rest I guess its time to go back over the others
