      wonderful job man!

      when you had the black rims, looked liked mine did back in the late 80's

      i had black gti w/ enkei wheels the looked like BBS wheels w/ 1 big lugnut, also had kamai rear spoiler.

      brings back memories, i was bad to that car but i was 18ish at the time.

      best of luck, sticky side on the road!

      Thanks man like all of our Volkswagens they're a work in progress lol the paint needs done BAD as in cut and buffed but I'm pleased with it she gets me to work to the gfs house etc it's broke down a few times but nothing major I fixed it all on the side of the road lol.

      Yeah I need those wheels back on I miss them so much I'm in progress of redoing them the same way they were before but the right way I want them glossy not flat.

      And I rip the living day lights out of this car I feel bad running it like that but it's way too fun I'm wondering why I'm only getting low 20s fuel mileage lol!

      Great work saving a MK1 GTI, reminds me of my 83, I really wish I still had that car. Nice to see another PA VW guy too.

      Oh ok not awfully far away I'm a lone gun down in the redneck boondocks where everyone drives lifted diesel trucks so yeah lol.

      Couldn't find no body shop to do my pin striping so I did it myself best $15 I could've invested!
