    the foha kit... not sure yet.

    the car? it's getting ripped apart. any parts transferable, that are an improvement are ending up on the Rabbit.

    The steering assembly, and manual rack will end up on the corrado.... becuase it doesn't have one as well as the front seats.

    Wow, I never really liked the FOHA kit, but I bet its cause I don't like small bumpers, if you had a big front bumper and got rid of the part of the kit that extended to the front of the car underneath the bumper I would love it all!

    And maybe big doors and an Aero Badgless grille to top it off!

    I'm new to GenDub

    Hi all...
    I thought I should introduce myself. I'm a California Dubber. I've owned several old school bugs over the years and 1 New Beetle.

    My current ride is an '83 Rabbit Convertible. I bought it 3 weeks ago for a mere $700. It has a straight body, minimal rust, and runs excellent.

    Here are some pics.




    These next 2 photos are a before and after shot to show you how filthy the headliner was before I cleaned it. The original owner that I bought the Rabbit from was an absolute slob.



    I'm going to slowly fix it up as my finances allow.

    I used a cleaner called "Castrol Super Clean". It's hard to miss since it's packaged in a bright purple spray pump bottle. I purchased it at AutoZone. I currently refer to it as The Miracle Cleaner. I also used it to clean up the door panels, degrease the engine, and clean my gas BBQ grill. That stuff rules.

    Im new to GenDub also and just bought a 93 Cabby. I will get the car tomorrow and have it on the road by the weeked. She is in great shape, no rust at all, and I am not kidding and just over 100,000km's. She has a new top and ton of other new parts. I am in the Mississauga area and am looking to see if any GenDubbers meet up around here once a week?

    Welcome VeeDoubleYou... actually every Wednesday (tonite) GenDUBBers meet at the 403 and Dundas Tim Horton's.... mostly in the bigger part of the parking lot facing the rear side of Timmie's.... but you should see them. Check it up in the Canada section (GTG every Wednesday in Oakville).

    newb sayin hey

    Whats up guys... just picked up my first dub (MKII Hatch) with the single headlight conversion, leathers, lowered, and some misc things... but i just wanted to say hey and hope to meet some new ppl.

    I actually ended up getting this car for what the tow cost me... lol so its got 320km on it, the motor was apparently rebuilt... but im thinking either 2L swap or vr6 swap depending on what it costs me. I'm looking @ getting some kyb's or bilstein's and some nice lowering springs, full paint, deep dish rims, 2.25" header back exhaust to a remus muffler, some momo accessories ... well its gonna be an interesting project...lol

    quick question, the stock motor in this thing is 1.8L correct?

    anywayz on with the pics (literally 20 mins after i got it to my storage unit)

    lol No kidding. Car looks awesome but I really wouldn't get your hopes up about 2-3 weeks. There's lots of us on here who got plagued by the "waiting for parts" thing this year. Unless your really lucky its gonna take a little while longer. Keep us posted though!

    PS - I vote for VR as well ... but I'm biased

    Welcome man... good to see more Kitchener people out on the boards...! And from your user name it seems either that you drive a GTi or just have a VR swap on your Golf....

    I know not to bring my baby there, however I'm not even sure I trust VW Dealerships to know how to work with the electrical systems. My car just got over a NON-starting issue. They had my car in the shop every week trying to figure shit out.Techs came to my house even. Turned out it had something to do with a wire harness.

    I got that...Just commenting on the the fact that even VW doesn't know VW electrical (in my humble opinion).

    Actually 2.0. All the money goes towards the one my boyfriend drives. Soon enough I will change the "Soccer-Mom" persona. (basically...I'm a young momma, my son plays soccer and I drive a VW that is in desperate need of a change).
