I'm really getting crazy about my rabbit again. I don't mention it much, but its name is Irwyn. Not quite sure why I named it that, but it seems to fit the car. When I'm alone out in the shop, I make vroom noises and simulate going through the gears, downshifting into a corner, etc. The car's outside, so I don't sit in it much, however. Damn I love that car. More than any other car. Because it is mine, my first car, paid for it myself, and do all the work myself. I get frustrated, but I love working on it.
Anyway, with the show coming up and all, I'd like to get it nice. Much nicer than it is now. Maybe a little interior work.
First order of business is getting the NA diesel going again. I changed the head gasket over x mas vacation, but never finished it up. I also cleaned the engine bay up even more while I was at it.
I finished reasealing the injection pump last night. Tonight, I put the bracket for the throttle cable on. What a bitch, those springs were a pain in the ass to get to go on.
Suspension plans are-
H&R race springs
Appropriate strut bars, too.
If anyone has suggestions on anything they think would look nice, please, please let me know! I'm thinking of sticking with a 4 button gti wheel, however, I may go with some old wood momo wheel. Going to get mk3 steelies for it, most likely.
My custom shift boot. I love it. I'll paint the rod someday.
Aftermath of my battle with the IP. I won.
Edit- More pics!
dat bitch ass injection pump!
