      Update for Sunday: I didn't even look at it today. I spent a big chunk of my day at my buddy's garage pretending to help him on his project mk1.

      Yeah, I just ordered some 15x1,5x28mm with 17mm heads to crank em down. The stock lugs are 19mm thus too fat for anything I have to fit within the adapter to tighten them properly. Also have new metal on its way for above engine flooring. Also have stock front door glass waiting to be installed... work has been keeping me really busy though.

      Laura! Hi!!! How are you and Michael doing!? Any plans for coming up for any shows this season?
      So a quick update for everyone else... I haven't really been doing a heck of a lot since its end of quarter at work and it gets crazy. I did manage to do a little work on the rear cargo area this weekend.



      So the bad metal has been trimmed and the new metal has been trimmed a little and all the well welds have been drilled out. I'm hopeful to have the new to me bits installed within the next couple of weeks. 8)
      And before I forget, it turns out that, for Porsche applications, the adapters from CIP1 do fit the stock 19mm heads... unfortunately, the socket needed to fit said OEM bolt doesnt. This is due to the proximity of 2 of the holes to the lugs that attach to the adapter itself. So what do you do? Either find a place that has 14M 1.5 bolts with a 17mm head (Although H&R used to make them but no longer you can have the wrong kind shipped to you by Eurosport - Ask me how I know - I'm kidding, Ivan and Hubert have been awesome sorting this out). Another option is to trim each bolt to a smaller size so a thinner socket fits in the hole or C (which is what I had done) is to trim a 19mm socket in width to fit. A local machine shop charged me $30 to do it which was a deal considering that bolts from CIP were going to be close to $70 before shipping.
      So now that I can properly fit the spacers, tire shopping time.

      Good stuff man. I got the new Rancho Prostreet trans in the beetle the other day. Today I slapped on a new set of P/C's and buttoned the motor all back up. I'll throw the motor in tomorrow morning and take it for a shakedown run/ring break in.
      the wife will be glad to have her kitchen table back lol

      because the rust was gotten too poor too try to riding safety in the futures. I'd think that it was the correct things to does for the car two.
