So I picked up this 1989 GTI 16v back in January 2021. I've been away from the VW world for a long time. Guess I've come to my midlife crisis.

Car has 89,000 original miles and run and drove when I got it. Cosmetically it needed work. It was 40 shades of Tornado red.

After a year and 8 months I'm almost done with it. Just have to finish re-assembly and cleaning.

Wow, this thread delivers.

Mind if I ask what you did as far as rubber goes? Rain gutters, windshield surround, other window rubber, etc.
I was lucky enough to come across a 1991 GTI parts car, I grabbed all the rubber off of it, cleaned it up and installed it. Not perfect but way better than what was on the car.

Got me drooling over here with these awesome progress pics. I’m like Vince McMahon falling back in the chair right now
