      Today...I repaired both front power windows which were inoperable...what a PITA!!!!! I had to quick rig and repair the power supply wire in the passenger side door jam wire boot...

      Now I need to figure out how to rewire the whole thing...

      EVERYTHING is negotiable...to a point SHOOT ME AN OFFER...the worst I can say is NO

      -I wish there were more hours in a day.

      Did the passenger side tinting...looks like crap around the bottom...that is the hardest part to get tucked under the window trim and remove the moisture...but it will do for the coming summer
      Better to go ahead and remove the window glass and it would be so much easier. Going to try that with the rear side windows.

      Washed it and then swapped amps around until I get my new box built. The old amp needs to go in the woman's car.

      Finally installed one of my zr1 chargers on my ABA. Something up with PCV cause I'm blowing oil out of dipstick tube and funnel is broke.

      Took off SRI, fuel rail, and some other odds and ends from old Golf Sport that's been sitting. Cleaned them up and polished some. Debating on installing with charger or selling.

      Got the hardware i needed to mount the t-stat housing pieces to the engine. Installed all new coolant parts from the crackpipe to the t-stat housing.

      Found 4 OEM VW bolts to mount the coilpack on ebay for $10 shipped.

      Next purchase will be new coolant hoses for the entire engine.

      Drove it around town, snagged a broken umbrella on the exhaust and dragged it all the way home.

      Well i been on the hunt for some wheels that I don't see so often. I found some ABT's!!! For dirt cheap too!!! F'n mint son.




      On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest. What would the rare-ness factor of these wheels be ? I know they are not super rare though.

      But anyways fixed my motor mounts again for the 8th time. They are done!!! Washed it and thought about selling it. Nah!!!
      She keeps tellin me you should sell that POS everyday. And then I consider the alternative. A quiet, boring, lil eco box. And then when im on the on ramp to the highway I punch it and wind out 3rd gear and hear that intake and the exhaust together in perfect harmony as it rips a humongous hole in the ozone layer and causes the spontaneous explosions of tree huggers faces . I my VR6!!!

      Decided it was time to swap the mid pipe for the new one cause the "soup can" wasn't holding up. I took it apart, got overwhelmed by all the rust and decided to put a new clamp on a different, but old pipe and mid muffler and call it a day. Returning parts is fun!
      Exhaust
      Then I took it for a spin to hear how it sounds, was satisfied for a $4 fix and parked it. As I was driving away on my new toy:

      I see a bird land on the roof, take a few steps, let a big one drop, and fly off. I just kept on riding.
