I've started on my mk1 cab 1.8 20vt cupra project
Last year I bought a cab which was supposed to be a "fun" car on the sunny days and might even be my gf's first car, but it all went different than planned....
I drove it in the winter and for about 3000km's and one day a Porsche Boxter pulled up besides me and wanted to race (my exhaust sounded optimistic ), I kind of could keep up, but a few days later the engine died
As you guys might allready know I don't like to fool around with used 23 year old stuff, so I just bought a 2000/2001 crashed cupra of a friend.
He's using the body for racing I'm going to use the rest for my mk1 cab!
My boss gave me a space in one of his buildings to use for the cab project, but I have to be out in February/March so I have to be quick to have it at least rolling by then!
Pictures of how I bought it:
Had a set of 14" banded steelies made and powdercoated them black
This was the last day it actually drove, lowered the car another 2cm's and put some 1.5cm spacers on the rear and 0.5cm spacers in the front...
Looked pretty good if I can say so myself
Last week I got the key to building I can use for the project so I put it in there and started stripping
Raised the car a bit
Luckely there's no rust at all under the front fenders
The endresult for now:
Hopefully this junk is coming out asap!
