      So I'm bored today bc i did a bunch of stuff to the car yesterday.

      post up what u've done to ur car yesterday, or just..lately.

      Some of u might be wondering why i picked "yesterday" instead of today?
      Because chances are, whatever you do, it has already been done before.
      also, it adds to suspense and ahh **** it, i was bored!!!!!!!!!!!!! OK?!

      disabled DRLs
      by covering TFL pin in headlight switch. taking out the switch was a pita!

      Removed Door Chime relay
      La Cucaracha it was a pita to get to the relay but i wiggled n yanked n ripped it out.

      Programmed Banjo key fob
      Finally got a spare cut at Home Depot and this process was very easy. done in less than 1 minute!

      DIY Red Smoke Red tails

      Used overlays, soap n water, kitchen knife and a hair dryer

      before

      after

      and some more views bc i really like how they turned out. not for everyone, but it is part of theme that i've yet to complete.


      thanks for looking

      i just finished painting a pair of plastic mirror cap (the little plastic gizmo that covers your side view mirrors) 'cause some douche bag stole mine.

      i did a pretty good paint job considering it's my first time painting since third grade and since it's from a can from Canadian Tire.

      hey question for you american boys: is there an American Tire down there? aaaahahahahaha

      I resealed the cabin air filter seal and cleaned my airfilter. I also realized that when my fresh air blower fuse in in, all electrical power disappears. WTF???

      tore most of the motor out doing a head gasket, new fan switch, new coolant temp sensor, and new fan control module. now i'm cleaning everything as i put it back together so it's been going...slowly. oh and a new chrome VW badge on the back.

      why does it have to rain on my days off?
