      nice little project man, i say go big or go home, but its always nice to have a quick turnaround on a car so you let it sit in the garage for 2 years and be nothing but pissed about it

      Didnt get much work done on the car this weekend, the 8v comes out and goes to new owner hopefully tomorrow, and will be making a call to lugtronic to see what they can do with the haldex if I decide to go that route.

      The wiring is starting to make me nervous already, but I guess Ill learn as I go

      Next step is to get the car down to nothing and get the whole body Acid dipped, anyone done this?

      I'm excited to see this take form. I just picked almost the same car as the start of my new project. Be my inspiration.

      Thanks!

      This week im hoping to get all of the electronics and wiring out of the car, need to figure out how to get the windows out, and start shopping for a subframe and a transmission.

      Would a o2m not be a good idea on this one? What tranny should i stick in it? (probably will end up around the 500whp range)

      Ya but what about the 500whp this car is going to see? my 12v turbo made 357whp and was told good luck with the 02J if I wanted anymore power.

      Anyways, got ALL the wiring out of the car and am headed to the volkswagen graveyard this weekend to find a mkIII subframe and some other goodies. I lucked out and found this guy who has TONS on mk2 &3 stuff

      Thanks! Im still working on stripping all the sound deadening from it, hopefully the car will be ready for media blasting in a couple weeks, decided against the acid dipping. After that getting a cage welded in, and seat rails for some sparco's i may be snagging for it.

      What color should I paint it?

      Nice, can't wait to see progress.

      What is the build date on the car? Is it a 3VW VIN? Reason I ask is the car is 1987~earlier spec.

      So stoked on this car being built in CO. After a few of the best ones leaving and others spending their time on silly mk3s its cool to know that there will be a few new ones coming up.

      Who is building your cage?

      Heck yes! I cant wait to get this one going, will get some update pictures this weekend, but its more dismantling stuff, getting ready to be media blasted. And I have a good friend at PFI motorsports that will be doing the cage after the blasting


      Other than that I am hunting a transmission, cant decide between the o2j or o2m, and will be picking up a Precision 6266 T4 .81 for it and lugtronic management
