I've been talking about this car for so long, I guess I should add it to the build threads.

There is a full web page on the project and it can be found at http://phils-garage.com/Workshop/Projec ... bunny.html.

First here is how I found the car.

Image

Image

The first phase had me chasing parts to replace.

Image

Image

Image

I had some help with the welding, Here the patches are being welded to the doors.

Image

Image

Next the car was sent to the body shop.

(Notice the trunk lid has been replaced with one from an older Cabriolet to remove the third brake light.)
Image

Thirty minuets after it came out of the paint booth.

Image

Next came the reassembly

Image

Image

Image

Image

In the meantime the engine was rebuilt

Image

Finally it all came together!

Check out the new position for the brake light!

GTI steering wheel and a real golf ball shift knob.

I love the way the rear deck came out to make it a roadster.
