      Took less than an hour to install the blinker setup. The hardest part was getting the wires to come out (the tool wasn't as strong as the tabs on the terminals), but I managed it with a set of pliers.

      I started to weld up the prototype end for my rear track arms. I had to stop, as my batteries in my speedglas is dead (not going to burn my eyes). I have 4130 Chrome-moly tube and hardware coming in to build the final units out of.

      Hmmm let me see - put the finishing touches on this lot....
      1. Re-Painted the STaSIS with G2 & some clear
      2. Scrubbed down the wheel hub(s) and painted in flat black rust paint
      3. Swapped out STaSIS 14" rotors for 13" Rotors
      4. Put back on the road wheels (Forgelines)
      5. Finished up the XM wiring
      6. Put back the remaining EURO Gray interior panels
      7. Finished swapping the EURO Gray seat covers to the US frames (Hog pliers, rings etc)
      Today / tomorrow will be completing the "Puting all back together" then clean, then some PICS!

      No mods at the moment, just detailed it, just like I do once a week, the perks at working at a VW dealership!

      Tried to "break-in" the back seat. Not quiet big enough for me and my lady friend.


      that is freakin awesome.....my last girlfriend left such horrible snail tracks in the back seat of my GTI and my new girlfriend had such a problem with it, that i had to get trade it in for a whole new car!
      all i did with the .:R today is drive her to work, but yesterday i spent the day issuing lots of premautre wear on the brakes and tires at seattle international raceway

      ahhhhhh......i freakin love my car!

      We took a 165 mile drive on Sunday; the thing is the distance from Dorset, VT to Williamstown, MA is only 45 miles. The twisties showed up and she would not head for the barn. She just kept asking for more tarmac to eat up.

    11. 07-09-2007 11:19 PM #61
      Drove it 30+ miles (thats alot for me for one day) and bought her a Pioneer D3 with bluetooth, ipod and xm hookups.
      Yes I own and love VW's. No, I do not think they are the best cars, nor the fastest cars. I do not like airbags, stance, expensive ugly rims, dubstep, drifting, hipsters, penis crushing jeans, neon rims, corvette rims, massive amounts of stickers, shocker stickers, or grenade stickers. I do not hard park, I just park.

      I got the R a new home. 1400 sq ft loft!
      its in a historic part of town and 1/2 a block from my favortie bar in town. Also a few buildings away is the mayor, and hes a cool guy. Im super excited to do some renovations the the place and start moving in. I just picked up the keys today!
      More pics here: http://images2.rdefined.com/v/Memphis-R32/Loft/ (thank you for the hosting Rdefined, I love you)
      The green and blue building are both mine.

      The R snuggled in its new heated garage with drain. Hello winter car washing with plenty of room to work on it

      Oh yea and a freight elevator that goes to the living room.

      Here is my prototype part. All chrome moly with the exception of the outer end which is mild steel, but my final piece will be chrome moly as well.

      FINALLY got the zipties off of the midlle lower grill and the retaining clips back on. Joey modded the headlights and the wife picked out her new wheels/tires, Hopefully they will get ordered on Monday, and on before Waterfest. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
