So after owning probably 7 VW's the wife and I decided to rebuild a few project cars. Some will be sold, some will be driven, some will be used strictly for audio build "How-To" vehicles. If you look at my 13 Jetta audio build, you will see some of the skills in the toolbox. What you will see here is full transparency. The good, the bad and the ugly... Have an MK4? follow along- everything from oil changes to replacing a windshield will be covered here!
