      Yes! It IS about the rust Thanks so much for the help Raffi! We're going to tackle more shiz on Saturday. I need to take pics with a different camera cause nic doesn't have his patch cable.

      YES! Those wheels look rad. I will be sandblasting the ones we have. I would like them to be polished though...
      Update from wed:
      Notched some supports to reinforce the frame rails. Cut around the "extra" tail light holes and made plates to fill them. Cabby tails will look nice. We also filled random some rust holes. I got to weld a little which was cool. Raffi helped out a ton. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      What is the log manifold origianlly from? Looks like it has the inner flange holes drilled out on angles similiar to a 16V. Maybe I missed something on the first page but if you were looking for an Audi 5000 manifold that sounds to me like you are building an 8V.

      I misspoke about the 5000... I would need an s2 20v mani... The 5000 has oblong ports. Sorry about that. This log mani was originally on the motor I bought, but MadBunny had sold it before I bought the engine... it's back to it's home now

      wfa = waterfest alteratives
      as for the "Schwa-stkah"
      this is what i ment; an upside down "e" is a schwa, and a stikah is a bumper sticker or a decal as seen below, it's a play on werds per say...

      I'm all about the GC. He's sellin his sleeves that have good spring weights for a decent price. It's hard to find used GC sleeves because people snatch them up so quick. I'm on all day everyday and still have not been in the right place at the right time
