Mk3 16v GTI Project

Postby mjbampt » 22 Jun 2015 21:05

So quick intro to my second Mk3 project - after having owned a 8v for a good 5 years and it slowly disappearing into the garage in the sky I decided to bite the bullet and buy a locally owned 16v ABF for my next project :

This is how it looked when I 1st drove it home :

She was pretty standard apart from those awful wheels :sick: - few bits of rust here and there however most importantly the engine and underneath were solid

So pretty much straight the way I began swapping over some parts from my old mk3 before I broke out the rest of the parts I didn't need - got rid of those awful wheels and begun to plan my list of mods and most importantly getting the rust and bodywork sorted :

Within a few weeks I had it slammed with a complete front end swap, stainless twin cat back system and hella all red rears sitting like this in time for ultimate dubs :

Over the next month or so....... a whole list of parts were bought and sourced while the car was prepped for bodywork and paint :

The plan was simple - cut out the rust, remove the arch trim, paint a new set of custom wheels :D
