    Default nine-deuce Jetta

    Bought this in september of 2008 right before turning 18.


    Immediately started wrenching on it


    The car had many apparent problems, and many other things were broke and I didn't even know about them (actually the whole car was trashed). So this is what I've done to it since buying the car.

    First thing to do was to fix the floors. My seat was rocking under acceleration since the base was rusted.


    That was not por-15, its actually shitty undercoating, and now its coming off, so I'll have to redo them this summer.

    The I encountered cooling issues. I ripped everything apart and replaced all the cooling parts. I also cleaned the bay...




    Oh yeah, ready to hit the rainy summer of '09 with blown rear shocks, amongst other things


    Blown shocks = buy coils.

    We all know racelands ride like crap with helpers and full height bumpstops. I cut those and removed the helpers. It gave this:


    Threw my seats from my old '89 Wolfsburg in the car.

    I also have the backs in.

    Autumn '09, the 325000km old 1.8l was showing its age. Valve seat were shot and one night it started bucking violently and having a lot of issues. Got myself one of those 2 liters from a mk3 golf with about 150 000 km on it. Also installed a single round front end.




    Now that part sucked. I had the engine in and everything. It would start but not run properly. I replaced every possible sensor but no cigar. I spent the whole winter/spring swapping the damn motor and I couldn't drive it. I finally took it to a shop in the middle of summer, it happened to be a loose injector plug, so it would only fuel 3 cylinders.

    Summer of '10, I got myself 185/55/14 federals, repainted steelies, painted manifold to match the seats, vented front brakes and a eurosport exhaust.






    This winter I replaced all of the rear brakes. Everything was either blown, seized or rusted beyond recognition.




    I decided I wanted to go lower. Montreal has such beautiful roads to do this kind of stuff.

    I had to pack more heat. Got a pan.

    And steel checkerplate

    And paint


    I wanted to run 15's this summer, but I got a deal on 16x7 and 16x8 Porsche 7 slots instead.


    Test fit


    Plan is to run a 35mm adapter all around, giving me a 17mm offset in the back for a slight poke and a 30mm offset in the front for some tuck. I already have cut fenders in front, I'll roll the backs and clearance shouldn't be a problem. Falken 512's in 205/40 are in the plan too. Since the wheels are slightly dinged and curbed, I'll probably paint them in light silver.

    haha dude builds a sweet car and everyone loves the oilpan more than anything else.

    nice work. front end swap was a good move, looks really good. not sure why you took the helper springs out, as im pretty sure they fully collapse under the weight of the car, so will not effect the handling/ride at all, but will make your springs uncaptive.

    keen to see pics on the rims

    good choice for rims...but in that car color I guess it will look better if you polish them

    And, no, it wasn't just the pleat in the pants. It was a full fledged man-love-car boner.
