    Hi and welcome to the forum, cant speak for every mk2 but mine was in a bad state also i have no exact knowledge of where about's in holland it was from if its was close to sea side then but would explain why the rust was really bad i also went a bit overkill on some of the repairs only because it will be an ornament and with me for as long as it runs. But some of the areas like scuttle corner, rear arch tubs, battery tray and filler cap are the common rust areas on a mk2

    Small Update: Shell went off to be painted last weekend hopefully second time lucky and should have it back soon which means things should get exciting as its mainly just get things back on and mot it. And my little helper the driver taking it away. With the shell gone its freed me to do some other finishing touches to some bits one being the ply floor, had to wait for some interlagos fabric from Mexico but the wait was worth it happy with how its turned out. Stapled some 3mm foam to the ply, bit of overkill but added it as an additional acoustic layer. The fabric was just enough The outcome. Wanted to do this for ages but timing wasn't there now finally got round to it, Jetta boot lock plinth with the lock deleted. And painted the rear spat arch guards to match Not got much left i can do while i wait for it to be painted so might be quiet for a while but appreciate all the comments
  4. You certainly got a thing for the cars sitting ultra low, like the look of this was after a 280momo steering for ages literary as i bought an omp one noticed you collect and sell cool rare ones.

    Update: Final push to get few little bits done shell goes for painting next weekend hopefully have it back some time end of April so i can crack on with completing it. Decided to ply and cover my boot floor, rising it up slightly means can have a nice even flush surface. Ordered more Interlagos fabric which i will finish it off in. Dusty old boot. Template And the result Bought some sound deadening also so far only done the boot floor will get the insides done once's its back and dust free. Moving on, one thing i never like about the jetta tailgate was the horrible hinge springs. so bind that idea and gone for gas struts but had to make some brackets to reinforce the mounting positions utilising the hotish weather managed to paint what i think is the final bit that i need to paint, which is the shortened drivers side drive shaft, over the weekend i went and helped to get it balanced or rather pressed back until it was true quite fun process. using the tt dash the 2 middle vents are going to be obsolete so using them to house some gauges one temp and the other boost. adapters Finally this is a little premature but got offered some tyres cheap so decided to dress the RS wheels, nothing crazy stretch wise and the rears still tuck under the stock arches but had to arch roll them. 195 40 on the 8.5J and 205 40 on the 9.5J Update soon

    And collected the interior which has come out really well highly recommend them if you have any ideas of your own. I sourced the interlagos middle fabric from Mexico which arrived really quick and actually have some spare which was given back by the upholsters which i'll do some other little finishing bits off myself. Few before and afters. And the other bits done.

    Yeah, the catch can has a little level dip stick which I should still get to and the body will look similar to the oil filter and blend in
