I Currently own a MKII 16V golf. The shell is in less then pristine shape and requires ALOT of rust repair, I loved the car but it is in no way worth the trouble that would be required to save it. A few of my good friends where aware of my situation and knew I really wanted a clean shell to swap my motor into. Yesterday I got a phone call offering me a red 4 door jetta shell for $400 bucks, followed by a MMS with this picture:
The 16V from my golf will be dropped in along with my transmition, manual rack, and wiring harnesses. the bay will be cleaned and painted bed liner black... Areo e codes will also be installed for coolness.
Would you recommend using flux core on the firewall??, how did you make those filler plates?, im doing mine soon, looks good so far
I used the MIG on the fire wall because the Flux was not working at the time, I would say uou should be very patient setting up everything with lots of practice on sheet metal before you do your welds.
I made carboard templates from behind the wfire wall transfered them to sheet metal got fit right then tacked into place! Thanks for all the encouragement!
