      it would be a shame to see it go after all the hard work you've put into it, but i know the feeling very very well. Good luck with the decision making

      yes she will be finished and sold. going to be stepping away from the vw scene and need to focus more on the drift car and race season and probably build/sell some slide cars. updates soon to come

      oh you dog you! that looks awesome. The drift cars are consuming all the time in the shop but i think its time to finally punch this thing all the way through.

      No need to do a ton of work to make a quick reliable mk3. Case in point:


      Drove out of that snowbank without missing a beat BTW

      nice ! thats awesome , nice too see jettas out there!

      ok i wrapped up the drift car for now and got the mk3 back into the shop.

      making plans for the updated fuel cell since the last one was much smaller since it was only a drag car . and plumbing it up to so it can be feed externally.

      but between now and then i've been kicking myself for not doing this earlier so i decided to seam stitch the engine bay and rain tray area while i'm at a stand still. also welded in the factory coolant bottle brackets in. mounted them a hair lower to fit with a upper strut bar.




      first progress i've shown in a long time

      get back at it! building the car was fun for sure but now that I've had some seat time I'd much rather be driving the car than wrenching on it!

      well some rear trunk reinforcement was added


      was added to support this fuel cell.


      15 gallon intake . mocking up the external fill and plumbing now.

      also see if the motor would crank . which it didn't. apparently starter was seized from sitting (BFH didnt work either). luckily i have years of spare vw parts around so another starter in and it cranks for the first time in years that felt good. slowly

      alright . progress has been made. lets kick it back to the last week of march.

      sorted the fuse box , took me about 5 hours to figure out why the car wasnt cranking . had to jump a few pins and finish some connections but FINALLY SHE CRANKS


      Now the air part was next. Got a obd2 aba throttle body. used the mk4 intake hose accompanied with some additional piping , installed the maf and filter. most of this setup is just temporary .

      picked up a bfi pcv barb and catch can also oil pressure gauge and sending unit. (all not installed yet)

      then spark. dug up some old eurosport thick ignition wires . and got a good working coil. can of starting fluid quickly confirmed we got spark

      now fuel. we ordered a bosch 044 fuel pump and fittings, k&n high flow fuel filter, fuel pressure inline gauge, some AN fittings .

      planing out trunk configuration . this seems like the best layout so we can have a full size in the trunk with tools and first aid , spare extinguisher aswell with the battery and fuel cell. going to try to keep this as balanced as possible .


      we are running hardlines under the vehicle then rubber at the engine and cell.

      heres basically where we are at as of right now. should be making noise very shortly

      Rocking... for rallyx... ditch the spare, the runs are short and the pits really close.
      if you're thinking rally sprint or stage rally its time for a new cage.

      well finished up the fuel system got fuel pressure to the rail.



      rough draft picture before everything was clamped down and secured .

      then mk4 throttle cable was installed and along with a new manual clutch cable.

      5 gallons on 93 into the cell and vroom . started almost immediately. started to idle right away. oh that felt good .

      first time in my ownership has the car ran and been able to move under its own power.



      next interior . finish canadian hvac box swap to non ac, get the dash in place . mount up foot rests, fixed buckets and harness's
