here is my build thread

Post by t53a » Jul Sat 07, 2007 7:45 am

well the rocco is goin under the knife soon. i just put in an order for tie rods, ball joints, new empi 100mm axles, and poly upper strut bushings front and rear.

the old brown 79 rabbit is gonna be parted out, donating its .71 5th, reverse, front struts/springs (lower/stiffer), cross drilled and vented rotors, radiator, and its 4-1 race header.

at the same time the hoodride its getting power brakes, new pedal cluster and steering column.

progress will begin once parts start to show :thumbsup:

sweet! that is a sick car, i love its stock body lines and stripes, it should be awesome, the poly bushings are a win lose type thing, youll feel every vibration from everything, but it will be one solid ride, well worth the extra filling loss :mrgreen:
