      When I started in the car world it was the same, same with the generations before me. You should hear the stories my Dad tells of growing up in the 70s and what they did with and to their cars with no money.

      Just decided it was time for a wash and light semi-detail (x2)

      Not I am just hoping that 20% chance of sprinkles doesn't manifest into anything overnight...

      HORRIBLE picture quality...but there it is...cargo carrier!


      I have a 4" rise adapted but I have to modify it...because it hits the bumper before the pins align

      in the picture it's installed straight on the hitch and it's ~3" from the ground when empty...
      I can only imagine when loaded...

      ill have to modify it later tonight

      Sold my VWR (Eibach) springs to some punk from Syracuse. Black, automatic, 2.5 Jetta, with a Jetta R GT style rear spoiler (horribly painted), some aftermarket rear bumper, 16 inch black wheels with red lip, some eBay halo headlights, and red front bumper mouldings. Whatever, I didn't say anything as long as I got my money... lol

      So I left the lips semi gloss and added a red pearl/clear over the white&gold pearl intercoat with the original silver base. Love the outcome. In sunlight its stunning

      Installed the CTS Catch Can, no fitment issues. Looks great, will update after a few weeks on fluid accumulation. Also installed the Honeycomb Conversion Kit... Word to the wise: You'll need a new front emblem with it. Found that out a little too late. Otherwise, it looks great, no fitment issues. K04 goes in next week, D2 coilovers, and the front lip/side skirts.
