Default Another old VW but i want a build thread somewhere

Ive attempted to keep a build thread on vortex, other forums. but never was at a point where i had the money, skill and ready to take my car to the next level enough to keep others attention. but in the end its just another old VW so who really cares.

I'm going to start by whoring out my old rabbit. cause i miss the thing.








but that shit is gone





so i got this 90 GLI



did a bunch of stupid shit to it. AKA to many stickers
]

but it was my daily and i loved it




h20i 2010


sweet pic with some chick


but as any daily over time things ware out start looking like shit, and being decently low. things just start looking like shit.


so after getting a better job and saving up some money i picked up a sweet mk4 as a daily.
honestly i **** mk4's. but after having one i don't really give a fuck about i have learned to love mine.




and with having a daily the mk2 went into the garage


where i spent my time to clean it up as much as possible


then MK1 madness this past year


Then spent all my time and money to replace all the wheels bearings, tie rod inners and outers breaks, every single bushing on the car, and god tons of other stuff


thats maybe half the stuff I'm not good at taking actual progress pics.

but in the end all this work ended with my car looking (at least to me fresh as fuck) at H20i this year.








but after h20i I've come to the cold hard realization that even though my car is clean, good looking, decent stance. its just another mk2 VW. its nothing special. and although i have hours of work into the car..... there is no real work into the car.

so i picked up a new wheels


and after a test fit i know this is going to take more then a different size tires to get them to fit how i want them to.






so my plans include beefing up my pinch welds with angle iron, plating my frame rails. notching both sides of my frame and raising my strut towers, O2A trans swap, motor lift, subframe beefed up, and some other things. maybe a diesel swap. and who knows what else. need to see where it all ends up. but thanks for caring to read.

Wheels sit nicely, but i assume they rub like a bitch right? Are these 215/40s on a 9x16 or 8,5? Try some 215/35s or 195/40s, add a set of camber shims and call it a day!?

this is going to be awesome! already looks really clean in the current form, but with the RFs and chassis mods, it'll definitely be next level!

errrr this build thread is done on the account if I am trading the car away for a 83 rabbit. but i guess its still another old VW so ill continue the build here. idk my full plans yet but after my minty rabbit got wrecked I've wanted another one so I'm jumping on the opportunity.



sorry for the shitty cellphone pic all i got of the car so far.

Awesome cars man, glad to see you've gotten back into mk1's. I remember seeing your old car's thread on vortex and was all pissed because you had already built what I had planned for my rabbit (mint green early westy)
