    well here is a teaser pic like any one cares that much


    rabbit is rusty and beat and need a lot of work but its exactly what i wanted. I'm to the point where I've done everything bolt on possible to a car and the only way to define a car as your own is to really modify it to a point where the average other person couldn't. the jetta was nice and i wanted to do all those frame modifications but in the end it would have required a paint job that wouldn't have came out of a rattle can. and well right now in life i can't afford that. so hopefully the rabbit will be around for a wile. at least a year.

    any way plans are Raise control arm mounts, towers, 3in frame notches, section frame rails, rear drop plates, drag around for a year and then next winter it will be finally time for my get a air cooled. more pics in a bit.

    what is the final offset on your 16x8s? ~et20/et15? i have never seen 16" come anywhere near pulled off on a mk4 and this looks pretty decent - i almost dont believe you lol. i dont know why people **** on mk4s really, i like them. they are the new mk2, if that makes any sense.

    i really liked your calypso.

    subd for progress on the mk1

    Wow, you have no idea how much your mk1 has influenced on my car build.

    Pretty much because of this picture



    my euro mk1 looks like this at the moment (it was red and with round headlights a year ago)



    Keep up the inspiring work !

    Very nice! You should check out my intro in the Noob Intro section. I've had a healthy obsession with VWs since I was 16.

    next, hopefully. I've wanted one for so long. i kinda move through cars quickly. idk i get board and then supper regret my choices.

    like i owned this turbo diesel caddy on air ride for about 2 months. then decided i was tired of 30 year old daily so i sold it for the mk4. happy to have the mk4 but still look back and regret selling it. i didn't build it. it was one of the dudes from 8380 if you fallow VW companies

    i really love that color. but if you could tell my by past 2 cars I'm a sucker for green's. the only reason i have the tan rabbit is because 1 i traded and 2 this dude on vortex named uberdork has a spray bombed ratty tan rabbit that i found the build thread with i was like 15 first getting into VW's and it made me want a rabbit.

    More pics of my current beater because idk I'm whore.











    and some quick pics from when i was young with my first mk4 i don't really admit to owning it because mk4 kids are dumb. butttt idk this forum does not really judge.









    guess this has gone from a build thread to just my personal photo dump. its bin warm out the last 2 days so if it stayed like that ill tear apart the front end of the rabbit and continue my real build.
