Ricerboi Cabrio


Recommended Posts

This is my 2001 VW Cabrio. This car has been my passion project for about 4 years now. Not everyone's taste, But it is mine.

 

I bought it four years ago for 450$ cause I was in need of a car. And since then she has gone from a cheap beater, to a full on project. anyway, here are some transformation pics from over the years.

Stayed like that for a while, Until I bent a few wheels on a NASTY Pothole

Then I accidentally backed one of my OEM Mirrors into a door.... So instead of spending 500$ replacing and repainting them.... I installed Power FD RX7 door mirrors, that work with my OEM Switch.

Around that time, I also made a badgeless grille, and had the hood notch filled, and Hood repainted. Also tried my hand at some underglow... The night before this show. lol

She basically stayed like that for a while. Nothing too crazy, except installing Camber plates up front.

After a while, I went a bit crazy and Raised the Engine, and fiddled with the front suspension to fit a 17x9 +2 setup up front.

And once again, stayed like that for a while. 

 

During that time, I also finished my Underglow, Way too much time into that system... And installed 5ft Takeyari Pipes.....

Anyway, I know it's bad, But I love it. And this is my main Focus. My Datsun will be a fun toy I can Take up dirt roads, and mess around in, while being able to fix cheap and relatively easy. This however is my Passion project.
