Not another build thread..more of a timeline (pic heavy!)

Well I've had the ol girl for a little over a year now and she's gone though a few changes. For a car I wasn't supposed to have more than 4 months, she's been a trooper and next to my ranger, this is the best $1,000 I've spent on a vehicle. Started on 12/10/11 looking like this..bone stock 01 SE with 168,000 miles



Couple weeks later she had new shoes and then a little blackout session started (minus tint). Did the taillights, foglights, grill, markers, headlights, emblems, wheels and debadged



Then for most of the summer she stayed this way..always muddy and serving as a daily driver while trying to keep miles off the svt. I added a Reese hitch to pull my quad and then redid the foglights yellow


Fast forward to oct/nov and then some stuff and things started happening. The stock wheels were painted olive drab and wrapped with hankook icept tire for snow duty while the svt was tucked away for hibernation.


Then came the mudflaps (which are now black)

And since I started getting bored with the interior, I decided to start messing with that. Camo inserts for the doors and a John Deere print were in order along with painting the shift knob olive drab



And lastly a couple weeks ago I obtained a Yakima roof rack and this is how she sits


Still have many plans for her: sap spoiler, off road lights on the rack and a push bar for the front just to name a few. Any questions as to why..because rally beater happy new year everyone!

Edit: just got my plates in the mail..

Svt

I can match my wheels to my glocks?? Why didn't I think of that? Haha. Nice car though. It's amazing how much those mudflaps change the look.

Lol there's too many of them as it is and who knows when I'll do anything again. Everything done has been done out of boredom to keep myself from buying a different car

Go for it! And yes I agree..the flaps are awesome and it's cheap to do if you get a little crafty. A buddy of mine had them a couple years back for his svt so technically I stole the idea from him

I know. My idea was going to wait until my VW was as closed to finished as one can get.. then I was going to post a 'Not Another Build Thread' thread making fun of all the half assed build threads already in the showroom..

But now I can't. Because you stole my title. Lé sad.

It must be a great feeling pounding the beater daily in Mi, while the trophy sits in comfort away from door dings, potholes, salt, s etc! Love both rides for their unique beauty!
