MK4 R32 pick up?

Has anyone seen this yet?

MK4 R32 is the base.

Looks like work is still in Progress.

I'm interested to see how it turns out.

Yeah it is local. Near Albany I believe.

I think the guy doing it works at a collision repair shop. It looks like he installed some serious pipe to reinforce the chopped unibody. I'm looking for more photos.

Maybe for a show car. I wouldn't daily drive it

Well it did look like it got hit. But I woulda rather fixed it then chop it up. It's a shame seeing those r32's, 337's, and 20th's getting beat up like that
