New toy (mk1 jetta)
« on: 14 March 2013, 12:45 »
Hi all thought ill post a few pics up here

So here it is:













Plans for now are to do a few bits of tidying up and raise it up on some new wheels then run it daily until the G60 lump is ready as it sits like this at the mo



So my main focus will be rebuilding the engine and get it ready to drop in

Sweet motor.
We had a maroon Mk1 Jetta when I was growing up and my friends had one in that blue colour too.

G60 transplant will be great.

Good work, carry on  :cool:

Sweet seems to be the popular response here.

Very nice, looks super tidy for it's age too. Love it.

Wayne, is that a genuine hint for the plate then?
