Blood, Sweat and Gears. The Build to Euronited 2014

The few months before a car show is always the most crucial time. You dedicate your time after work and your weekends to building your car to show car standards.
This was the case for Wojtek's 2006 MK4 Golf CL, A 2.0L, 5 speed Manual transmission. Not a single power option on the car (manual door locks, crank windows, manual mirrors no cruise control etc.

This thing was as stock as they come, but Wojtek had plans for this car.

His biggest decision was to swap out the measly 2.0l for a VR6!
Being a former mechanic I applaud Wojtek for doing this at home especially during our winter season here in Canada. You will never catch me working on a car unless I have a hoist and a heated garage!

After the completed swap it was either 'go hard or go home' and let me tell you, Wojtek went hard.

Here are a list of mods that followed:
-All original from Germany OEM Euro Spec front and rear bumpers with a 4-motion front lip.
-OEM Euro Spec Stubby mirrors (electric and heated)
-GLI sideskirts
-Air Lift suspension (XL slam front struts, Firestone rear bags with Koni yellow shocks, 3/8 lines, V2 management, Duel 440 viair compressor, long skinny firestone tank)
-Fully custom built trunk to fit the air suspension set up
-Schmidt TH-Lines wheels (17x8.5 with 205/40/17 Falken ze-912 tires, 17x9.5 with 215/40/17 in the rear, Schmidt Flat chrome flat caps)
-Magnaflow Exhaust
-Rear wiper delete
-Helix HID replica headlights
-Single fog light (driver side)
-Euro Switch
-Full GLI Power Leather seats(heated)
-GLI pedals with dead pedal
-OEM wood grain shift knob
-4-inch double din Kenwood DDX-319 head unit

The car has never been winter driven, its been to SOWO and H2O.
Currently at 113, 000 KMS

Here is what the finished product looks like:





Wojtek will be attending Euronited in Mississauga, Canada on July 13, 2014. Here is more information below:

"EURONITED CANADA is Canada’s premiere all euro car show & shine, previously held in Port Credit the past two years now has a new home in the village of Clarkson Ontario on the lake. Our set date is July 13, 2014 so mark your calendars. Euronited Canada will be raising money once again for the Canadian Diabetes Association and collecting food donations for the Mississauga Food Bank (The Compass - Clarkson, Lorne Park and Port Credit division) this year again also, it’s for a great cause and we hope to see you all there! The show & shine has been in operation for several years now and with the first couple of years being hugely successful we are back again for 2014! The whole idea is to have an all euro car show close to home in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere. We believe this location is perfect being in the village of Clarkson Ont., because it has charm, and heritage, a waterfront trail and backs onto Lake Ontario."
