Post coils and Axle flip.

1980 VW Cadyy LX
Started life as a 1.5 diesel truck and once I got it, things started to change. The diesel had a blown head gasket and needed to be rebuilt. Kyler and I decided, to hell with the gas milage, let's make her scream. So...
We pulled the diesel and found a 1.8 8v to swap into her.
Roundlight clip to solve frontend damage
Raceland coilovers up front
Axle flip
Mono wiper
Shaved rain tray
mk1 gti vented rotors
mk1 calipers
no mas bumpers
gsxr turn signals up front

I'm sure I'm missing some stuff.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
