    My Jetta (Build Thread)

    Hey guys, My names Ryan and just thought I would start a build thread sooner rather than later!

    I have a 2003 Jetta GLS. I got it about a year ago and have slowly been adding parts and modifying it.

    Here is the car the first week I had it.


    from there I did the maintenance and got it running perfect.

    Shortly after that I bought some gli tail lights and put them on the car just in time for winter lol. The car stayed stock up until this summer when i started putting more money and really worked on it.

    First I bought a set of raceland ultimos and put them in the car. So far i have no complaints and they actually ride nice from what i thought they would be like.

    I also put on a rep gli front and rear lip.


    I picked up a second trunk off of raz and me and my buddy shaved it just waiting for it to be painted right now




    My interior was starting to bug me a little and i wanted a change so I used duplicolour fabric paint to paint it black. I was very impressed with how it turned out. I also painted my radio pieces a metallic grey colour so it almost matches the gli brushed aluminum trim





    After basically blowing up my front lip (fibreglass) I decided I wanted to go on air. I sourced out a few things and started building my trunk set up.





    and finally all done with the fabric.



    Also bought these for the car for next year. BBS RS-ii. 18x8.5 fronts and 18x10 rears.


    Thats about all I have done up until this point. So big plans for next season. Hope you guys like the car. Here is the latest picture of it.
