Zed's Build Thread....

Post by m15 vw on Sat Oct 11, 2008 11:30 am

Well I thought it's about time Zed had his own build thread seeing as he and I have been through so much. Here goes..

I bought him in 2004 like this as I couldnt afford a "proper" corrado vr6 (by proper I meant one that was running). A cat d and in the middle of being broken for spares...

If only you knew something about cars you could have done all that work yourself...

And when the hell did you get the Cream Recaro's, they look so much nicer in the Blackberry than the old set up.

I'm assuming these aren't available from VW any more? Might be worth checking out Passats with the same roof?
