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
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...

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

I mocked up my phonedials since my adapters just arrived yesterday (BIG 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
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.
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.

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:

LOL corey your awesome! Its cause your car is the hotness!
I got my car started after a 3 week water pump change!
Golf:Washed, waxed and buffed it. Added a qt. of oil and checked to make sure all zipties are secure
Jetta: Fixed the rear wheel cyl., replaced an overly due axle. Fixed my starter
GTI: Test fitted the motor, stripped the motor down. Had my fabricator redo the combustion bowls, installed the Spec stage 3 kit, Sand blasted the enginebay, installed the new tie rods, balljoints and new rack, bead blasted my 11" G60 calipers in prep for caliper paint, sand blasted my MK4 rear calipers, re routed my guages, did some wire hiding magic , Disassembled my turbo in prep for ceramic coating and some polishing
VR6: on engine stand: stripped, hot tanked, reamed....basicly rebuilding from the ground up, bead blasted the enitire rack in prep for powdercoat, labeled VR6 harness, stripped and cleaned rear beam. This will be my winter project soon as i find a MK1 to drop it in
Disclaimer: I forgot a few things as its late and im pooped
Tomorrow is body work day. hint butter smooth enginebay on the GTI
towed over the mk3 donor car....stealing the 2pointslow before i ship the shell out to anyone willing to pay a small chunk and tow it away. then i started tearing apart the front end.
i needed a break by dusk so i went on a little night-time photoshoot. i swear im getting better at this night time thing....
I just looked at my GTI today. I'm waiting until this weekend, I'm picking up a new exhaust (it currently has none). I'm also going to fix the rear hatch lock, passenger door handle, and driver side window regulator. Then my friends I will be driving the hell out of it! A2's rule!
fixed my hella brake light and put on a momo look alike streering wheel was going put in my new horn but got too lazy might do that tomorrow
and maybe i will do my fog lights tomorrow just still not sure where i want to mount them thinking of cutting the grill by the head lights but that take alot of work
