Hey everyone!.
Just new here, thought I’d put up a thread of my mk2 jetta big bumper model.When I bought her there was a rat look theme and a black bonnet, but i prefer a cleaner look. She was a 1.6 straight diesel. On the plus side she had coilovers and was fully poly bushed. First intentions were to just polish her up and get her on the road quick but once I started I didn’t know when to stop..I had no intentions of starting a build thread so the pictures are mostly from my phone and there are times when I took no pictures when I should have, so here goes...



Stuff I’ve had done so far:
-Full respray in a bright white
-Fitted a 1.6 td engine
-Newton Commercial sound deadening
-Newton Commercial black floor cloth
-Golf lights and grill
-Doorcards and parcel shelf re-upholstered in black cloth
-Bora gt tdi seats, front and rear

-New radio and speakers for the doors and parcel shelf

more pictures to follow, trying to get the hang of this photobucket thing

cool job smile.gif
when i was getting mine i couldn't get a 3.5'' band because he only works in inch increments huh.gif
so it'd be going for a 2 inch or a 3 inch band.. bit of a bugger really
what's the best way to resize a picture to 1mb?

small update..
this is the car back on the floor with 13 inch steels off my golf..

and i stuck 15 inch hubcaps on to smarten her up a bit..

and just a picture of the seats installed..

the back seat is higher than the original but i can live with that cool.gif

well smile.gif this reply took long enough
he's a friend of my cousins.. bit rare though and doesn't answer strange numbers.. i had a bit of welding to do myself after they came back to make sure they'd hold air, if you want a set i'm sure we could work something out smile.gif

so anyways, got the plastics back on the car..

and from the back

this is how low the car's sitting on the front but bear in mind this is without a splitter tongue.gif

still have a few wee jobs to do over the next couple days but i'll try and post updates smile.gif
