  • 16v Cabriolet Project!

    ALRIGHT, I GET TO MAKE A BUILD THREAD. Since the Forums where super dead, I never was able to document a build thread for my crazy mk4 build/coming of age build.

    I'm still trying to figure out the photos thing so bare with me.

    PROJECT DAILY

    what is it? 1990 Cabriolet

    Whats in it? just an 8v 2h paired with a 020

    Any cool shit already? Well yeah, some mivers had the car a few years back and did some awesome stuff, like nuespeed sway bars, mk2 recaros, and some motor work.

    What is my plan? I picked up a 1.8l 16v from a Rocco in the yards, along with some H&R springs and Bilstein shocks, also at the yard. So I'm going to rebuild the 16v make it a digi 16v, then throw it in, throw the new struts on, maybe go small bumpers, maybe bumperless, maybe paint it or wrap it. who knows, that's why we have build threads!

        I had a 16v digi cabriolet way back when. it was fun, but I eventually went with an ABA swap.
        Bad decisions make excellent stories.

          Saw some highlights on the FB. Glad you came to the forums. There should be plenty of knowledgeable, constructive help if you need it along the way.
