Was pretty clean for the most part. Low mileage, black interior, few bolt-on’s Already done. It was a great starting point.

Replaced the headlights with some OEM style amazon specials. Bumper had the fog light holes shaved and repainted.

Hit up my friends at Wilwood and hooked myself up with their 13” BBK and stainless lines.

Still has some clear coat bad spots on the hood, but overall looks great.

Also added the Cupra-R lip to the bumper. Much mo’ better.

Autometer to the rescue on the pod and AEM with an oil pressure gauge. Now it’s not so terrible.

    I got around to getting my lower IC pipe remade and getting a dump tube made. The previous owner had put some clapped out intercooler contraption down there as a pipe. Anyways, properly routed and welded now and my wastegate is actually dumping outside the car now. So it’s a win/win. 1159DBEE-B0D0-4FF3-98C4-D63DECC13043.jpeg E2D795F7-C0E8-4025-9AF2-0CA2469AF3B7.jpeg 60A499B1-723C-4323-B9E8-53CBA48F269D.jpeg EF2F24A9-2E22-4710-9AA5-67E584E70A3A.jpeg 9FB08216-FF51-4CC1-B311-7A138A006996.jpeg 8352855E-5A5F-4532-9E6A-6EC6CCE7C903.jpeg

    Great job job on the restoration! You’re right, the details make it all come together. Looks fantastic! Put us down to buy it if you ever part with it.

These are the cored cavity versions meaning the spokes are hollow, allowing these to be super light while being cast. Fitment was spot on with 235/40/18 Firehawks.

These are 13” rotors front and rear with 6-piston and 4-piston calipers. They filled the wheels much better. And it stops pretty good.
