Updated pics on page 11 *5/21/12*



You heard me. I've loved the harlequin's because they are so unique and so many people talk about creating one with a Jetta but they are all talk and I have not seen anyone follow through (I could be wrong). Which leads me to today...Saw a listing on the Vortex for a free Jetta (sorry uberslow2.0 and Neptuno) I IM'ed him (Its a Jetta17) and he said no one had made any arrangements to pick it up so I set up a time and date and today we picked it up (well my dad did) Alan said it was a good runner but the auto-tragic is out so for the time being I plan to put the auto from my cabby in it until I can rebuild one of my 4 o2o's in the barn. Throughout the winter I'll be painting it harlequin style, not sure what i'm going to use as the base color as of yet. My GF has been itching to start doing some upholstery work on my car so this is gonna be her first test, something to match the outside colors hopefully. Gonna be badass when it's done. Love it, hate it, I don't care

List of mods that I'm gonna do:
- Shaved trunk
- Shaved front bumper
- Shaved exhaust cut out and tow hook on rear bumper
- 60/40 drop
- Badgeless early style grill
Without further adue, pics in its current state:

I wish cars could be that slammed with suspension in them. I look forward to seeing if this will actually ever get done.

It's impossible, there is no suspension and the front wheels are just kinda floating there.

Re: (insyderz808)

this will be the first, non p-chopped, actually talked about and completed harliquin jetta if / when you finish it.
Pistachio is by far, the best base color out.

Re: (sk8snogo)

no need to fix it - i know of the markIV but considering this is the markIII discussion forum, I didnt think I had to be specific as too which model Jetta model I was talking about.
Now, hurry up and finish this for instant super star status
