diary of a mk2 life, R content

I wont bother yall with the long drawn out story so ill give a real short one and then pics, if you have questions jus ask and ill answer, so my first car ever was a 91 jetta alpine white that my dad bought for me in 96...

and its last state before it sold


my dad passed away while I was in Afghanistan so..long story short I wanted another mk2 but this time I wanted to make something nice so I bought these to make me a nice alpine white jetta



quick summary to today my family has grown so we dicided to rent a house since apartments are small and I needed to raise money to make this move happen so I sold a lot of stuff I had including my project but since then my funds have built back a little and jus happens that my new project popped up on interwebz and for the price and the fact I wouldn't need a color change I couldn't pass up the opportunity to restart my project up again.. so I picked up a 92 gli with the vr6 swap already performed, im gonna rip it apart restore and redo everything over nicely...



and yes that's alo my cobra in the back lol along with other cars I have lol

Haha. I wish I had pics of my mk2 from back in the late 90's. Everything was very different back then. Good luck man
yea man the whole vw scene was so different everyone was more unified and helpful and now its filled with toolbags that trash talk you if your car isn't the 'fad' which is why ive kinda pulled away from that and im getting back to jus doin me and goin to maybe 1 or 2 shows a year ..... not interested in scene points or being accepted, too old for dat sh1t lol

Cool project. My first car was also an alpine mk2 jetta. And sure enough, at 30 I am still driving a mk2 jetta. I have tried a few other things, but the mk2 jest feels right. Looking forward to seeing progress.
will have pics on progress soon, jus rounded up some parts I need yesterday so in about a week ill be posting pics of progress:thumbup:
