      So my first vw was a mk3 Jetta loved that car rusty as **** but still cleaner then anybodies around good Ol louisville I rebuilt everything on that car lots of goodies it was quick to me drove it to the max everyday had the typical problems chains leaking everywhere dirty as **** and just ****ed up by the time I got done with it it looked like this
      I did some trading and ended up with a BMW then got a Audi then I did something crazy I bought 2 corrados the one that "ran" was a white 1990 g60 which had been converted over to ob2 vr6 turbo and then I had a 93slc with no title and no motor got the cars on a deal and slowly just getting the motor back together and trying to bring this thing back to life on the budget I got lol but here is a few pics I'll get into what I've done so far in later post I'll try and keep the pics heavy for what's to come thanks for looking

      Thanks getting ready to rip everything out of the inside have no power in the back when you put a fuse in radio spot speaker smokes? Sun roofs of track and under the dash is a nightmare going to be ripping out the heater core for a fresh one and just fix everything

      ^^^^ reason being for this is because the shell has over 300k and it's ****ing nasty plus I got all these electrical gremlins hiding around like for instance somebody decided to install my fuse block ass backwards so this is more **** to be done this pic might make you sick !!!

      And somebody at some point tried to install aftermarket radio and this car has the aktiv system long story short they stuffed speaker to big in all the holes ran everything together with ****ty connections and somehow tapped into the amps in doors since I've owned the car never had a radio so we tried to install it put a fuse in the block and both door amps go up in smoke they are old and junk anyways but damnit man ..... I have to either make a harness or rip the one out of the slc parts car ... Either way blows Ill get better at these pics I sware
