Please post a pic of how your engine bay looked when you started, and how it looks now. You can do the same for the exterior if you made a big improvement.

Maybe in a while we can have a vote and see who wins for "most improved mk3" for engine bay and exterior.

Please try to keep the pics 800x600 or smaller so the page does not look all crazy and take an hour to load. If you need pics resized or hosted I'll be happy to do it for you.

Here's mine to start it off:

WOW! All of those are nice, some you can't even tell it was the same car to begin with! I think this thread will give some hope and motivation to people just starting their projects as to how nice it can be with hard work and dedication.

Wow nice work everyone! Here is mine, it started out bone stock. I don't have a stock bay pic so the one I posted is a generic stock pic. But I do have the before exterior pics (except for the vents). She is still a work in progress....

Okay, here's my car:

It had been sitting in this guy's driveway for like two years w/ a tarp on it, because it had a BHG, and wouldn't start due to a CPS issue...(noob :nono:).
