I have this car in my sight for over 12 years now .my partner in crime is a very conscious and tidy worker... his personnal project has taken different step ,directions and .....alot of time .
the rabbit has been repainted 3 times , sandblasted completely each time (beach party in my garage anyone ?) the project is almost completed ...no more changes ..( are u listening ?) i hope ...I'll try to update with various pictures everyday ...
different step( it's been so long ...i might forget a thing or two )
-1st resto / touchup ...circa 1996-97
1st complete sandblast ,painted pearl white
completely fonctionnal hydraulic corrado wing
complete passat glass sunroof(and when i say complete....
swap vr6 corrado 95 automatic ( at the time ,the only tranny available ) lol

5 bolts hubs fitted (complete brake corrado swap )
-2nd step (6 months after)

That's crazy. It's comforting knowing that there are people out there worse than I am at finishing things. Although your car looks a lot better than mine
