      I had to drill out the stupid hex screws that hold the drivers side seat belt latch to the door. Damn things stripped like butter...
      Now I'm safe again.

      I pulled the backseat, used the lug wrench to take out the rear seatbelts (i couldnt get a socket to fit, wrench was perfect) and ripped out a bunch more of the back: because i can. I also bummed around the junkyard for a while, the dub got me there

      I finally hack jack the 22mm socket to torque the front struts all the way, take it for a spin...... Great.....
      Looked at it... jeez... have so much stuff to do... paint, bumper proper fitting, molding, change side mirrors, get new bucket seats, fix the dash, fix the a/c, swap a xflow on it.........
      Are we ever going to finish?

      On my Younger Brother's Golf, we've been:
      Dual Outlet Exhaust Manifold, Dual Downpipe, TT 2.25" exhaust
      Getting the intake polished
      Have a 270 Cam to go in
      Lightweight lifters
      AMS Chip is on the way (though UPS ****ed up, and switched his shipment w/ a VCR...)
      BUT, we had to take a Hiatus to have my CRX's Crankshaft pulley kick our ass...

      I tried to find the cheapest place for parts for my swap.
      I looked at germanautoparts.com, bmaparts.com, autotechparts.com.
      Looks like I'm ordering my waterpump from german auto parts.

      I repaired a tire and my monza exhaust came in the mail today.Im kinda dissapointed in the quality of this product came a little chiped up, paint on resonator looks as if it was placed in the bag while still tacky.The welds do not look profetional.Other than that looks good cant tell whats on the inside.i cant wait to hear how it sounds.......sorry i had to vent to someone about the way i feel about it

      Sorry to hear that. I've heard good things about Monza.

      I mocked up my phonedials since my adapters just arrived yesterday (BIG [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] to MotorsportTech ) Re-hung my exhaust since the rubber hangers on the muffler snapped. And contemplated whether or not I really want to sell the damn car and start over with the ratcoupe

      I just received a brand spanking new 11" brake conversion for it.

    21. 08-02-2005 11:48 PM #46
      Just looked at it, sitting all sad and lonely on the side of my house. It's awaiting completion of it's VR swap. (1 1/2 years and running), gotta get the wiring sorted. (I got a 16 month old boy and an 8 month along pregnant wife, so I don't have much time these days)
      Damn, I want to get it finished.

      Fixed my damn cat. converter which fell off the other day and did a DIY smoked tail light job.

      Today I polished the lip of my new old 15" X 7" RDs, maybe in a cpuple days I'll paint the center and detail the caps.
      pic before polished

      Last minute:
      I buyed 4 BBS RA wheels, they appear to be from a Helios Jetta and it was a very nice deal. The question is: should I repaint them? they are in excellent shape, but I don't have an Helios...
      they are like this:
