      After a few hit and runs, having to replace the clutch twice and pull the trans 7 or 8 times for constant issues my cabrio is together. Took it to H2o and actually out for basically the first time this year.

      Front and rear fenders are finished, as well as new euro bumpers and air ride. Kept most of the stuff going on with the car to myself until it was finished. i did the best I could with my own hands and got some help from a few friends.

      Hope you dig it.

      Shaved Euro bumper with an ABT lip. I could easily make a golf front. I don't really like them though

      The greatest thing about this car is the guy that owns it.

      Shame I didn't see you this past weekend my man. Saw the car being driven around by someone on Friday but it wasn't you.

      Looking for affordable, low offset 16's if anyone comes across anything. At least 8" wide and offset under et15 if possible. The lower the better for the rear, those grids are at et-5 right now

      Better have a euro rear rebar on this thing

      Saw the car at h20. Thought it was yours but the flat color threw me off at first. Wheels and fenders confirmed to be yours.

      Plans to match up the rear bumper with those quarters?

      Looks good. But why all the rear fender work??? Better wheel fitment planned???
      She keeps tellin me you should sell that POS everyday. And then I consider the alternative. A quiet, boring, lil eco box. And then when im on the on ramp to the highway I punch it and wind out 3rd gear and hear that intake and the exhaust together in perfect harmony as it rips a humongous hole in the ozone layer and causes the spontaneous explosions of tree huggers faces .

      Yea, when I was doing the wrap I accidentally backed into the fire hydrant in front of my house and screwed up the rear bumper, this is the spare.

      Fender was screwed up by a hit and run. Had them pulled so I can basically run whatever wheels I want.

      Front bumper came from another sniff car. Oh, that's my catback exhaust breh.

      The car was actually Nogaro blue before the wrap.

      I actually did the wrap in my driveway with a little help with the really hard stuff from a few friends. I did it mainly because how little $$ I have into it. It was super cheap. I scored 23 feet of vinyl for super cheap, they bought an additional 15'.

      The bumpers are just over 8' long

      I appreciate the love and I am going to work on the rear bumper when I get a new one. I rubbed through this one basically.

      And I like the wheels on it, just want something new
