      Youre excited? hahaha, imagine how I feel.

      Ive decided to stick with the caps that I have and just put my money toward a proper powder coat.

      Agreed, the interior stuff I have planned will look pretty out of place without a black headliner.

      are yours chipping, or could the finish just be nicer?

      they arent chipping per-say, but the paint is comming off in a few area's probably from something under the paint, or lack of prep in that area...

      and the finish could be nicer, im going to re do them with heavier coats, and more clear.. i thing that is the trick

      Good call, I dont need to tell you how much of a difference the prep. makes. Im hoping to get a good price on the powdercoat and call it a day.

      Also got the shift boot on after some struggling. Imagine trying to put a baby sized dome over a 2L pop bottle....actually, dont imagine that. Point is, it was a bitch, but i got it, and I love it. Pics. tomorrow.

      After speaking with my uncle Ive established that a media blast and powder coat is going to cost $150/wheel. SOooooooooooooo, they will stay silver this season at least, the chrome valve caps wont look as good, but oh well, at least the finish on the wheels is nice.

      Plus, thats more $ to put toward Koni's

      The poor thing wouldnt turn over today. It has been cranking really weak lately, and I have full acc. functions so Im thinking the starter motor has burnt out...that, or the relay for it is crapping out.

      Anybody know where that relay is?

      edit: Just ordered the Bentley on manual on CD-ROM, which I should have had from day one.

      Looks like it was my battery, I didnt have time to boost it earlier as I was on my way out...it turned over with a boost.

      New battery mod tomorrow!

      Thank you, thats exactly what Im trying to accomplish.

      the black door handles look exactly the same today as they did when I painted them. I would HIGHLY recommend painting them to anyone who is considering buying them.

      Shaved the rings off the trunk today...oh noez, how will anyone know its an audi!!!!11

      Anyways, I love the way it makes the lines on the trunk look, but there is a slight discoloration there which pisses me off. I polished and waxed it but its still there...wet sand may take care of it...

      so hot man, love the look, and license plate frame is super clean.

      A little rubbing compound a nice buff with a wheel should clean that up nicely

      Another thread sparked my interest about this; where is my cluster from?

      Someone said it was not a 97 cluster, but its obviously not a '00 '01 cluster because it is entirely red.

      The guy who I bought the wheels from had a 99.5 avant, and he had the old style cluster...like older than mine, so Im confused, that doesnt leave any other model years, lol.

      Geoff,

      Your cluster is correct for your car, you have the trip computer. Not sure about Canadian market cars or the 97 model year, but for 98, 99, and 99.5 the trip computer was optional on the 1.8t in the US.

      Nice meeting you last week and I'm glad you are happy with the wheels.

      Happy new year,
      Tom

      I've been losing lots of keys lately
      I don't know what that means but maybe
      I'd be better of with things that can't be locked at all

      Geoff,

      Your cluster is correct for your car, you have the trip computer. Not sure about Canadian market cars or the 97 model year, but for 98, 99, and 99.5 the trip computer was optional on the 1.8t in the US.

      Nice meeting you last week and I'm glad you are happy with the wheels.

      Happy new year,
      Tom

      Ahh, very good.

      Great meeting you too, cant wait to get the wheels on. Did you end up picking up those RX's?
