      Decided I wanted to fix the little bit of squeal in my front brakes at low-speed stops. Little bit of 100-grit sandpaper did the trick (left is untouched, right is sanded).



      Also, I don't remember how thick the pads are to start with, but I have 7.495mm of pad left (not including backing plate) after 47,640 miles. I think that's pretty good. And those are just plain old Jurids.

      So in the process of doing that, it involves taking the wheels off, and I figured since it has been 11,000 miles, I should rotate them, and while they're all off.. clean them, too.





      Yeah, three of them are made in Canada, one is made in Britain. Weird how that works out.
      We need a series like this state-side. I'm in if there is one, or will be one. VW Cup 2015, anyone?

      Finally welded up my rocker exit exhaust I started monthes ago, and threw it on.

      Rebuilt a late mk4 shifter box, and swapped it out with the worn out Mk4 one that was already in it.

      Threw some more parts at the bench polisher.

      Then forgot my camera when I left for home.

      Oh nothing, just thought I was going to finish today and ended up cracking the plastic area of the radiator.

      Great things to happen on Memorial Day Weekend, when parts are so easy to come by

      I am the worst for providing pictures.


      Still waiting on him to show up with it. But I'm in the process of finding a new shop space, so when I move (read clean up the mess) everything I'll have an accurate inventory of trans parts. But If you need it before then, I can source and build you one forsure. I can get full core trans all day no issue. Any idea what you are looking for gearing/final drive wise yet?

      Looking for something a little longer than what I have now (the 16v o2a), first and second come way too quickly and I drop into third way too deep and come out of power. Basically looking for something very streetable that's not going to kill my slip times when I really start putting down power. Do what you think is best, no rush, will probably have the $$$ in about 1-2 months.

      Yeah. Those are fun. Take the bumper off. 100x easier since you can put a 1/4" drive socket on the back, and hit the front with a cordless drill.

      Fixed corroded reverse light connection and replaced the front rotors. Pads were almost new, but the PO must have either turned and/or warped the old rotors. They wouldn't pass safety inspection.

      Swapped in an 02J with a Bildon Motorsport LSD. New custom gear selector, Sparco seat with harnesses, Momo wheel, new vented rotors, green stuff pads, fat H&R wheel spacers, helmet hanger, VW SCCA contingency decals, waxed it and took it for a good beat run on some fun NH backwoods gravel roads to make sure it hooks up. No more 1 wheel peel = faster laps.

      Replaced Serpentine and V-Belt. The Serp was pretty worn, and the V-Belt was . . . scary. Glad this was a proactive and not a reactive operation. Bentley is now dirty. Have Tie Rod assemblies on the way from BlauParts.

      Took off my grille..trying to get to the foglight screws...14yrs of plastic going brittle...pop...ping...snap...clip pieces flying at me, thankyou safety glasses...removing the bumper, started with the 3 screws on the bumper then popped the two wheel well plastic stops and then got distracted by the grille...removed the backing plate, then the emblem.
      Thinking I might paint the grille
      The OEM fogs with the smoked refector/blinkers are growing on me...
      I have the white bulbs still on the blinkers and they look OK.
