There are a few build threads that I like to read through and see the progression of the builds. So I hope I can return the favor with my 87 build. Its going to take some time with a wife and a kid and bills etc, but hey I guess it will give me time to really think and "experiment." anyways on to the pics and plans.

Plans -
Coilovers
( not slammed )
Polish the teardrops or some type of different clean wheels. ( does anyone have mk2 steelies ? )
Random interior bits of interest.
obviously clean and restore the interior and body.
fresh paint.

I can fully appreciate a build when wife/kids/bills are a factor. Nothing wrong with taking your time. I started with the mindset of a 2 year build and I'm past that and no where near finished. Slow and steady is the pace for me. In for the long haul :thumbup::popcorn:

Ive got many of the electrical demons squared away. the person that owned this before did some shady shady stuff electrically.

example : hidden amp hot wired to the tailgate button ? wtf ?


should I do corrado steelies or polish the teardrop/silverstones ?
