So I figured I'd start up my project thread again now the all my pictures are broken in my thread on GMF, and well TS is gone.

Thanks!

Sadly those are older pictures at this point pre accident, things have changed a little bit since then.
This is what the front end looks like now:

And there was always this side quarter panel damage that was there when I got it.

You might recognize this steering wheel I'm using now...

Despite all that damage and whatnot, I have been working on getting prepped to fix it, I've poured too much time and energy into it at this point to just let it go and find a new chassis although that would probably be easier esp since I have the 93 laying around.
Few picks of some of my parts hoard and messy garage:

And I've still got all kinds of performance goodies that were planned to go on sitting on my shelves still in the boxes.
All kinds of OEM goodies from Japan.
New OEM parcel shelf from Bowen.
Turbine Tech Front and Rear Strut Braces, yes I managed to find a set somehow!
Front and rear whiteline sway bars 22, and 27mm.
Glass headlines and clear corners,
A few things I can think of off the top of my head at the moment, anyhow, it's a long way from where I wanted to be with it, but the accident set me back so now I'm working on getting the body sorted out. Hoping a new thread will help keep me motivated.

Ohw nice too see a red Mk2 GTi.
That was mine first Suzuki back in 2003.
And yes I still regret letting that car go.

Looks like you have enough to do in your spare time ;)

Got an appointment at 11:30 tomorrow with the body shop to take over my used parts and figure out how much the repairs are going to cost me. In preparation, I put the new hood on so they can see what they have to work with, I couldn't figure out a great way to fit it in the car, I'm going to put all the rest of the parts inside the car to drive over. The new hood really makes the damage look even worse. :( Well here's to hoping they come up with a reasonable number to charge me for the repairs.

Sorry about the rotated images. I'll have to fix them later.
