    Thread: MK3 Cabrio fixing, tuning and other stuf

    1. 01-29-2020 06:02 AM #1
      Greetings from finland. I just bought an MK3 Cabriolet and next there will be a lot of repairs. Yearmodel is 1993 and car was imported from Germany 2004. Engine is 2.0 8v. I’ve already ordered:

      - Coilovers
      - ABS sensors
      - Front and rear brakes
      - Wheel bearings
      - Idle valve
      - New top

      Paint is scratchy and previous owner has painted some spots with spraybottle, so something needs to be done.

      Repair pieces arrive for fenders. I am now preparing the car for the over wrapping. I'm going to change the color completely because I don't like that red one.



      I was surprised how shy that was with 7,5x17 et35 wheels. Now there is 20mm spacer and rear wheel looks much better.

      Old left rear spring was broken, so now was indeed the right time to do this.

      Looks really good! If I understood you correct, you are wrapping the car? What colour were you thinking of?
