For many of us, there’s just something about nu-wave metal. Whether it’s the modern styling, unexplored territory or just the chance to fit a big set of wheels and bags. It’s an awesome opportunity to get the chance at being unique, but its also trend setting when it comes to being the first to modify a new car. And as Joe (@rampling) found out, that can be quite fun yet a headache of a process.
Personally, I’ve known Rafael, or “Rafa” as everyone calls him, for a short while now. He’s the kind of person any car enthusiast should aspire to be. Rafa might be one of the most humble, friendly, and helpful guys you will ever meet. The first project he had that caught my eye way back in the day was the MK3 Jetta everyone called “El Verdugo” (The Hangman). Probably 5 or 6 years back when the stanced-out/lowered scene was barely starting on the island, Rafa had already been killing it.
