The slow gti
« on: 24 June 2011, 15:13 »
Thought it's time to start a build thread and I'l do both cars in one  :laugh:


Bought the gti 8v because it was mint, one lady owner, fall VW service history, leather, ac and 25,000 miles  :smug:

Wanted to keep it standard and keep it in a garage, that didn't last  :grin:

I'm getting VW badges gold plated with the gti on the rear quarter trim, and other bit's  :wink:
I want cl indicators and rear lights too.
engine will be super charged eventually, but spending money on the vr6 for now as it needs it.

Just fitted these with fresh Yokohama's pradas

First of all I got rid of the wheels and put the gti wheels on.
lights, mirrors and coilovers are next on the list to change.

Then I will attack the rust and paint.

need 6 branch manifold and decat  :laugh: got a straight through pipe, but want to hide the backbox.
inside need some work and tiding.
then the engine work will begin  :grin:
so many things I have forgotten but I will post everything I change and add.

need to take headlights apart again to paint the back casing  :embarassed:
yellow indicators will go for the orange ones
not to sure about gold vw badge  :undecided:
next will be the wheel colour, and pressed plates
I'm thinking about selling the vr6 and put the money towards supercharging  :evil:
