Had a 2 day stripe painting spree

How it is of now.

Going to tear into it again like every winter. Want to put a new rear panel in and a new rad support, a few other changes as well.

Winter jetta gasser goes bye bye come spring.

It's body and interior is pretty good condition, has alot of gremlins that i should be working through but have been busy. It gets me to point a to b for now. Waxed it before winter to preserve the paint somewhat, put some mudflaps on it too. Pulled the jetta euro set-up off so it doesn't get ruined over winter. Hopefully i can make some time to get more work done as it is pretty run down having 350,000km on it but not sure past that as speedo doesn't work.

Thats all for now. Updates as i get time to work on the two mk1's!

Thanks for looking--kane

If it was not spray bombed and had a nice paint job then it would be pretty close to amazing. With that being said, this is the only color I've seen spray bombed that looks good to me. I love the stripes too it would be a fun car

Yep, totally regret spray painting it but with the shitty respray it had and all the clear coat, and i dislike the north american look on rabbit(late west**shudder**) then made the bad idea. In retro spect wish i would have had the new fenders and front resprayed to match the color.

But i do like the cream and black together, nice contrast i think.
