So as I said in the trading post section, I'm thinking of doing a Jolf conversaion this spring if I can find someone with a black Jetta who wants to trade front ends with me. I was just wondering how much work is involved in this conversion. Is it something someone who doens't know anything about body work can do?

Also, if anyone with a black Jetta MK4 is interested...let me know. (Is that a douple post...oops )

i've seen these things down in half a day. as long as both people know what they are doing then it shouldn't take long.

I don't think it matters.

GETTA = Jetta with GTI/Golf front end
JTI = GTI with Jetta front end

And you are right Josh, It doesnt matter.

Swap takes alot less then 1/2 a day...We did the mk3 on in about an hour working half-assedly. I know a kid in allentown with a black jetta who wanted to swap...but that might be to far for you

I dont think thats a word Dakoda!!!! :lol: But the more I look at Jtis, the more I dont like them. It a really cool idea, but I think it makes the car look too long in front. I do like the jetta front end though. It looks mean. They didn't make Jettas in Satin Silver, so I won't be doing the swap anytime soon.
