Default Bora TDi 4Motion build thread

Hey everyone, I've been a member of TDICLUB for awhile and today i thought of introducing myself and start a build thread for my Jetta.

TDi love started for me when a customer lent me his '04 Jetta Sport for a week. Since I've always driven boosted Civics before this, you could imagine how much gas I would go through on my daily driver. Driving this Jetta for a week on the same tank of fuel sold me! Immediately I started looking for a Jetta TDi for myself. About a month later I purchased a 2002 Jetta TDi with about 240,000 kms. Great car. I did small mods to this car before selling the wife's Pontiac Wave and giving her this Jetta. I bought a 2000 Jetta TDi off a customer since he really didnt want to continue his TDi build. The motor blew shortly after. Then this is where it really shifted into overdrive. My 2000 Jetta was back in the shop with a blown motor

As it sat there for a couple weeks I noticed some rust popping out in spots and it really bothered me. Off to the body shop. At the same time, we got an R32 at the shop for parts. We used the motor and drivetrain for a mk3 swap we were doing. Obviously looking at this empty shell I wasn't going to just let the floor and rear components go to waste at some junk yard. Immediately I started my 4motion swap and build.

Here are some pictures of the car and the build. Feel free to post your comments and ideas about the project.

This the car when I bought it:

I can't wait to see how this turns out. This car would have made VW some serious $$$$ in the US.

Floor all prepped


Floor completely removed, properly at the spot welds


Floor pan installed and ready for welding and seam sealing


Camber


Finished!


Rims ready for paint, GT3 replicas. Painting them black to match the GT3 look.


Ready, painted Z4Z4 Black Magic Pearl from the mk5 GTi


Since I had all the parts from the R32...decided on the R dash and the climatronic swap and a TDi Sport cluster, yes IMMO3 cluster in a IMMO2 car

Got the car back from the body shop


Ksport Pro Coilovers for R32 are in


Time for re-assembly


Another shot with handles on, its coming together


Rear bumper in, more assembly


MK5 style mirrors for MK4 (still unsure about these)


Climatronic fully functional


Decided to add a Passive keyless entry, smartcard, alarm with push button start, love the electronics


That's it for now but I'll post more updates as I get some more work done on the car. The shop is really busy lately so I've been only putting in an hour or so here and there.
