Electronic Green Mk3 CL
« on: 21 February 2022, 11:24 »
Just picked up this week, guess I better make a thread to document the journey.

First port of call will be getting it a little closer to the ground on suspension that doesn't feel like it was designed as a gyro for a boat. Then some wheel (OMG, that is an absolute minefield, I am so undecided).

Next will probably be interior. I will probably just opt for a VR trim as the OEM recaros seem to be hens teeth these days.

Vento front end I would love, but again, not many about, so may just go for some texture top bumpers, or full on poverty spec all black plastics.

Finally, I really want to do a 3.2 conversion. I love the VR grunt and noise. Yes they are heavy, no they aren't "that fast" but will be more than enough in a Mk3. But I think I have to go 5 stud conversion for that so the driveshafts fit? I've got a LOT of reading up to do.

That looks to be in great condition.

Rare colour - can't decide if it's amazing or a bit painful!  :laugh:

I think with some aesthetically pleasing wheels it would look mint (no pun intended)

Managed to bag a set of heated black colour concept recaros and standard black leather rears  :cool:








A lad up the road has some coilovers he is selling from a breaker, so hopefully grab those this weekend too.
