Just picked up a Cabrio today. It seems to be is really good shape and I got it from a mechanic for Jim Ellis. Looking forward to getting this one sitting right and putting my own touch to it.

Couldn't stand looking at it in 4x4 mode any more so I dropped her down. I also redid all the lower black trim and blacked out the grill and VW emblems.

Well I got rid of the blue wheels today. Decided to throw a little aircooled flavor at it. I just did a quick job that ended up not being so quick. I didn't have anything to get the tire shine off the rims so I had some bleed through but they shouldnt stay on the car for too long so I am not worried. Hopefully I will be getting my adapters in the near future so I can make a wheel change....

I haven't done much to this car at all. Ashley is driving it everyday though. I did pull the tint off the parking lights and tightened up the top latches. I also picked up some wheels for it but I am not sure I will use them. I like the look that it has now.....
