Well, not so dope like other cars around here but I'll show my work in progress for springtime (I hope)
The patient is a Golf I bought around 2005 and unused since late 2006. 54cv oilburner, the damned car broke alot of things at same time while
I was studying and had no money for it.
Now are better times and I want to resurrect it. The donor was a Seat Toledo TDI 110 what make the swap pretty straight forward... Almost
plug&play ! Besides of that, I want to give it a 'modern feel' to drive because it's 2011 now, not 1984 !
Now the pics of the process.
The car sat like this at the begining, council abandonment award included:
Dismantled and towed outside by my daily for a extensive wash... A Passat 20vt
This is all the rust from the car:
A bit of matte paint in the quick side...
... And then, sound deadening application for vibrations from the engine and some audio isolation, a little PITA
Next step the roof:
Testing. Perfect fitment !
After that, I got the engine bay painted and start to mount everything again... Now with donor parts:
And sit like this now. I hope this weekend I'll can give it some time !
Meanwhile, the wheels finally arrived, and custom centercaps too... Not too pokey, I want to left the arches untouched and without
And that's all for now... I hope you enjoy !
