I'm quitte sure the front will look nice -> wenn the ducktail is on installed. I just don't understand why he is not using a Golf Mk1 frontend, just weld that in and start to modify it.

Since the title of this topic says: Mk1 Wagon

I was thinking about a "strechted" Golf Mk1 or rebuild Jetta Coupe with Golf Mk1 rearend. So I'm hoping he will install a Golf Mk1 rearhatch

@ Melly: you indeed have trouble with the section system...

yeh me neither (about the front end) seems simpeler then all the fiberwork and the rest of the car is all metal too... then again.. mk1 round headlight fronts aren't a dime-a-dozen in the US either

It's still a Fox, and as such, is the VW Parati from Brasil which was sold as the VW Fox in USA/Canada. The Fox sedan is the VW Voyage from Brasil, they are both variations of the VW Gol

(I may have mixed the Brasilian names)

Hey guys just thought I would say hi. This is my car. I am still working on it everyday. i would have liked to do the front end in metal too. (still might) as for fitting a mk1 metal front end ? it wasn't even close to fitting.

I have been welding a bit too, today. It is really hard to get it the way I exactly want it to be (check my project -> link is in my signature). I respect you work a lot.

But I was thinking, you are spending so much energy on that car, why not weld in a Golf mk1 front end (and where I was talking about, rear end aswell )?

Anyhow, keep us updated and have fun building your ride!

won't fit, fox is really something else as a mk1, comes closer to a passat than a golf..

loose the brows (IMHO)
love how the duckbill fits, but it really does need that little grill under the main one you have planned.. just a little too clean now...
