some of you may know the car from h2o or other shows, alot of you probably dont. first ill throw up pics of a little time line of how the car has come along since i have owned it. then on with what im up to right now. i will try to update the thread as regularly as i can. hope you guys enjoy

the day i brought it home


first few things were the usual... badgeless, grill spoiler, suspension, tint, exc... threw on a carbon hood and shaved the markers out of the front bumper for good measure.


ran it like that for a year, then started getting a little more serious. next up was better suspension. H&R race w/ bilstein HD's, and decided it was time for a decent set of rollers. RXII's with powdercoated red barrels, pearl black centers, and bbs caps to finish them off.



next up was to make the engine bay a little cleaner. shaved a few brackets/studs and moved some of the harness around to clean things up a bit. moved the battery to the trunk while i was at it.




then came some bodywork for the outside. shaved the rear body panel and the exhaust cutout in the rear bumper.








the last few touches before h2oI last year were red calipers and a 90mm lip


here are a few from h2oI. managed to get 3rd place in corrado mild, which was a huge suprise to me since the rados owned h2o last year.



and finally how it sits today


most everything is out. only thing left to do is unbolt the mounts and drop the motor out. the plans are full motor rebuild with some go fast stuff, along with a smoothed and tucked bay. probably some more body work somewhere along the ling as well. i guess we will see how carried away i get

like i said i will try to keep this updated, the plan is to have it ready for h2oI this year http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: FV-QR (dasbeast3.0)

Re: next phase of the build.. (vdubmike2)

Like what you are doing with the Corrado. If you need help let me know I'm about 2 hrs away and like helping out corrado folks in the area. What do you have sitting the garage and is that your MK1 Scirocco?

that pic is a few years old, the black g60 in the garage got sold 3 years ago or so. it was a rusty pile of crap that had waayyy too many previous owners hack it together.. the rocco was my dads and got sold last year.

What did you get for a daily? Your dad said you guys were going to look at a GLI.
I have some work on the wagon that I need done if you guys are interested. When I was up a couple of weeks ago I mentioned it to your dad. Are you coming down tomorrow night? If so we'll talk.
