Page 4 :: Ripped out Vmaxxs, and went to stock for a week. Then replaced with Bilstein PSS9 for some actual dampening and future performance tuning.
Page 5 :: OEM Tornado Red 'DTM' style stubbies
Page 6 :: Turbo parts begin to arrive
Page 8 :: MKIV tubular subframe research project begins. Replaced Arooga horn.
Page 9 :: Turbo build begins. We didn't just slap parts together. Attention to detail was key, and no corner was cut in making it seem like it was OEM in aspects that matter most. For example: Spent almost 2 days looking to auto parts stores to find proper pre-bent water hoses to re-route the heater core lines.
Page 15 :: Corrado spoiler mock-up. Never went through with it, still debating on machining billet bosses for it and painting it black.
Page 16 :: Turbo build is done (for now) let's call it stage 1. Took some winter shots.
Page 17 :: Time flys, New GTI Recaros, Euro Notch Spoiler, New 3" Burns stainless exhaust, Red Winter LBs with Blizzaks
Page 18 :: New splitter, H2O, break 1st splittler, buy 2nd. Fabbed aircraft style exhaust heat shield for bumper. New Clutch, new glass lenses.....
Page 19 :: Stubbies re-done in black, Waterfest 17; and headspacer, studs, and pump ordered.
Page 20 :: Headspacer, studded block, fixed cracked exhaust manifold...quest for more power!
Page 21 :: OZs get "Flat Bronze" Powdercoat, and get a set brand new BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2 Tires, a new release from BFG that outperformes the KDW VF-Mounts, TWM SS.

i've never gone to D&B.
lol oh and BTW for those wondering i'm upgrading the rears pretty soon to 11". With the brembos in the front it makes it almost look like there are no brakes in the rear haha
i didn't even wash...just dusted it and then quick detailed it.
i keep a bottle in my trunk where the fire extinguisher would normally be along with 2 microfiber towels and the california duster with me all the time during the warm months

not to say your car isn't pretty
haha right now it definitely seems that way doesn't it? I guess the style i went with just gets more of that feel. Lol if i get to make it a 24V Vrt this summer like i want to it'll be even more function over the form. But i still have some body mods to sort out that i want to do. Shave and mold a littler here'n'there
and thanks about the hat man, can anyone guess what mag that is under it?
