Rescued MK1 Cabriolet

Hey all. Rescued a 1987 Cabriolet MK1.
Sat for a while on a friends property and was sadly neglected.
Going to need a lot of work but will be a nice little running and driving car once done.
Needs a lot of interior parts annoyingly. since the person who had it before my friend decided to rip it all out to try and make a Race Car out of a Cabriolet LOL.
So far I have replaced all the fuses, some hoses, Headlights, made my own tail lights for fun, recreated the whole harness that runs the Rear lights, Fuel pumps and defroster elements. *The whole harness was cut out of the car*
My daughter helped me with a lot of cleaning and she also helped with removing the Cam cover and belt cover for Paint. She is 4 years old and has been doing a great job. I have been going over a few ideas for engine mods and the like. Planning on Setting up the 8V to run a Turbocharger. Looking forward to getting it all done.
Video 1: Introduction


Video 2: First Polish


Video 3: Paint Choices for engine


Video 4: Harness and Lights.


Hope you all enjoy.\Fixed the double Video Link. sorry about that.

I pulled the stock muffler out it was making a lot of bad noises. Come to find out it was stuffed full of rocks and rat nest.
I replaced it with a 2.5" Resonator.


Still need to finish off the welding and then paint it

Exhaust is done

Finished the exhaust off. It turned out nice. Next I am doing all the belts.




Used the original hangers from the stock ruined muffler.

Progress ^_^

We got some good stuff done lately. Cabriolet is now sitting on Bilstein shocks and struts with H&R Lowered springs. Huge difference in ride and handling.
The AN conversion fuel system is nice too. no Leaks at all.



Next will be working on the Body a bit more and stress bars for the upper and lower sections.

Twin coolant fans done. Much nicer then the single fan and quiet.

Also Started doing all the sound deadening as well.
