Default my rabbit gti

hello
my name is otti and i am from germany.
my expensive hobby made it a necessity to get a better payed job so i moved to norway,where i still live.
i am in the process of building a car up from scratch and ride the bus
shortly after i moved to here i bought my first mk1 84 rabbit (kind of rare in europe i think. i did a lot of work to that car and enjoyed it a lot
i bought the complete content of the sparco catalouge,supersprint exhaust,
lights, chrome parts and silicone tubes.....and more


i loved that car and decidet to drive it to germany for a nice repaint in my vacations. unfortunately did we when we took it apart a lot more rust than we expected difcould specially on the rear axlemounts
there was no hope of saving it and i was really unhappy when we had to crush it.
no time to waste i bought a new shell and begun to work on it


i got a good offer for a 1.8t engine i couldnt refuse
one year later, tons of work ,3000euro in planetickets many hours overtime
she sits like this










the car is copletely white inside engine bay and underside

and for fun:
first start
dnt mind my voice i was exited to hear her roar for the first time
gauges

i hope you like it

Indeed, the blue-white engine bay is a killer
Really nice!

they fit quite well and look for shure better than the strut mounts only some foam tape on the inside to hold them in place.
and they will not rust

i'm not a fan of big bumpers on mk1's but it goes with the style of this car.
there are some mk2 look bumpers on the market. i think Rieger made them??

Wow really great colour combo otti,love the two tone with the blue and white.The engine bay is stunning great job!! I wouldn't change the rear bumper, you could always run it without bumpers which looks really racy and actually quite nice in my opinion.
