nice ride bro!!!

Thanks, I'll get some up ASAP!
W58 will fit just fine. You will need the front half of the driveshaft from the donor car as the auto driveshaft is a different length. W58s are pretty plentiful, so it shouldn't be hard to locate one. Nice MkIII! Looks like a nice starting point.
Thank you! You are right, there are quite a few W58s for sale near me, more than I expected.
those rust spots look pretty bad. what do the frame rails and subframe look like? i'd make that priority over w58 swap.
The rust spots aren't as bad as they look actually, the frame rails are good and the subframe is fine. The only rust spot I am concerned about is on the passenger side quarter panel, it's a small hole. Though I've located a quarter panel that I am thinking about buying.
