    Craptastic MK2 Jetta

    Well, i don't really post on here much because i have nothing cool to post. But now i'm just bored. So i'm going to post up my MK2 project. Nothing crazy is going to happen, just little stuff for now.

    Well, i have owned 5 ****ty VW's since May of 2010.

    My first VW was a $300 GTI.
    Started:


    Ended: Riced as **** i know. Don't remind me


    My second VW was a 1992 8v Jetta.

    The motor blew after a few months so i att***ed a VR swap and ran out of money so i traded it for my buddies Jetta.

    Third VW was the Jetta i got in trade for my 92.
    1986 1.8 GX


    This car ended up catching on wire because of some stupid ****. But it still ran, i just needed something better to drive so i sold this Jetta to my buddy and i bought my 4th VW.

    my fourth VW
    1990 Passat Wagon 16v 5speed. It had a good amount of misc stuff done when i got it.



    This car is now also owned by the same buddy who owns my old Jetta.


    So after the wagon i had an 85 S10 Blazer with a 350, then a 2.4 swapped 96 Neon, and now I'm back into another dub.

    So now that my past VWs are out of the way, this is the current ****ty VW.

    1992 VW Jetta 1.8 8v. Paid $800 for it, it runs great, drives great, and is complete.
    It came with
    Depo Aero headlights with city lights
    Badge less grille
    Smoked bumper blinkers
    Smoked Fender lights
    Diesel 5th gear
    Stainless exhaust
    Rokkor Coilovers in back
    lowering springs up front (no idea why it has mix matched suspension)
    Red Taillights
    and everything works besides cruise control.

    I got a polished G60 Valve cover for $50 and put that on. Cleaned up some stuff under the hood and painted some stuff. I painted the ****ty teardrops purple, and i have been fixing little stuff.

    Pictures of ****ty Jetta. (I didn't paint the car)






    I'll keep this stupid thread updated with stuff i do to the car.

    Update time!

    Motor tore down for parts to be cleaned and painted and a new timing belt.

















    Hard to tell, but i black splattered the cam and intermediate shaft gears. Also Purple splattered the gun metal motor mounts.

    Just my opinion, but that block could use a good cleaning while it's out too! The rest looks good.

    Yeah, i cleaned it well but the block needs some sanding to make it smooth. I plan on building a 2.0aba/jh head motor soon. So this is just temporary for now.

    Update time!

    Motor and trans is all put together and waiting to go in!





    Can't wait to put this stuff on!






    Rocking some 13inch VW hubcaps for right now.

    Pulled it out of the garage, got it all ready to start and it wouldn't start. Went through a bunch of shit to figure stuff out. It would try to start but wouldn't. Tomorrow we're going to change the MAF, check the fuel pressure and re do the timing again. It's so close to being done!! :wall:

    More pixors of The Whore and some of the exhaust. We used some spare pipe we had laying around, and a Tractor muffler from TSC (Tractor Supply Co.) It's just like a glass pack. I like the way it looks. It has normal exhaust hangers. The chain at the end was more for looks but it also helps hold the muffler from moving side to side. Car also needs a little bit of body work in the back.
