      99 Passat Wagon
      09-30-2012 01:27 AM #1
      Im new here, love this site so thought i would share.....Got this 99 1.8t wagon like 2 months ago from an old guy, bought it with 80k, he didnt drive it much, lol, had new tensioner, timing belt, water pump, ect installed at 70k...all records, papers, keys ect. Im stoked, good score for $3k, clean car. Havnt done much, fools be broke these days, all in due time.


      got some merc rims

      unfinished box im making at work.

      donked out

      lowered some

      decided to make a rack

      slats looked to plain, finished it around edges, then it looked like a baby gate

      made wood rails, looked dumb, too round like it belongs on a bug

      made removable metal rails, im used to aircooled ****, so just did something similiar


      Decided to remove packing from inside the coffin today, i hate fiberglass, itch itch


      my welding sucked but got the job done, stupid thin ass metal


      now just wait for my coilovers to come in, roll fenders and sit this bitch on the tires

      Caught me off guard, but it turned out very nice! Keep it up.

      Definitely needs smaller wheels, Conestoga is not the look for that car.

      Got some coilovers for my car, did some sanding and resprayed rims, also some new center caps. Did some ghetto fender rolling but turned out nice, Def looks better squatted down a little more.



      used a wood closet rod, heat gun, didnt heat it that close, was just for pic, lol lol

      Little patience, heat, and rolling over and over at different angles, worked perfect.




      deck of cards comes in handy for something other than poker, lol.
