      There used to be a thread for these areas, was quite long. Did everyone move away, graduate, or what?

      Clean Silverstone, it's one of my favorite colors on the MKIV.

      The rubstrips look good str8jakett.

      Thanks! Put the last one on today (ran out of tape yesterday), I'm very happy with the results. That means the car is put back together except for the headliner. Beach trip starting Saturday, so once I get back I've got to finish up.

      If you end up with a blue lagoon GLI I'm going to have to kick a dent in it to make myself feel better. My all time fav!!

      Me too.

      Hopefully I'll start meeting all you guys in August/September. Is there a regular enthusiast meet at Tech? And how's the Audi community?

      If you guys check out carclubvt.com there seems to be lots of meets and gatherings already. The first show is sept. 27th i believe.

      the vt car club is open to any make of car's but there are a couple VW's on there already. We can always setup just VW events if you guys wanted to. Like photoshots, events (dinner, pong, etc)

      Nice!

      But currently:

      Playing around with some cheap mods and trying to get rid of those wheels.

      There used to be a quite a few people around here, although I never met any of them in person. Tried to make it to some of their Sunday meets but I was just really busy at that time. Glad to see some people are coming to the area.


    12. 07-28-2008 05:35 PM #12
      Nice.

      Some cheap mods you could do easily yourself with just a little time.

      - Joey mod headlights.
      - headliner

      and then some that involve a little big of $

      - intake
      - bumper markers
      - fender markers

      After that its pretty much time to spend the big bucks

      Dude you def. have to help me take apart my headliner and rewrap it. Cause i have NO idea how to take all that ish apart. haha.

      And finally, someone in the area who has a spot and tools to work on the car. I was worried i'd be stuck in the school parking lot with minimal tools.

      This may be a better introduction of what we are about. 2009 AMG C63 just came in on Friday!!

      Now for the JTI.

      This is what we do for fun, make videos and drive around.

      I really hope you decide to join our forum.

      Love to help, but I'm no expert, this is my first time around for everything as well. I can definitely tell you what not to do!

      Houston - I joined up as well, but haven't looked around much. Seems like a nice place and some fun times. Nice JTi!

      I'd really started to go stale on my car the past couple of years and I was to the point of wanting to trade it, but instead I got laid off of my job for a few months and the boredom set in. Worked out good for the car though.

      Sounds like a fun meet, headed to the beach that day though. Plus, the car will probably still be in pieces until I get back.

      Just a few of the progress:


      Still have to reinstall the rub strips on the side, and then tackle the headliner, which scares me.

      Ahh yes, and one only the VW guys will get:

      i wasnt going for just the g2g. Was suppose to go down there to pick something up as well so i thought i'd swing by the g2g. I've been to the arlington g2g along time ago. Was 7 cars or so only and after that it just died out i think.

      I really enjoyed it, very relaxed compared to Myrtle.

      I need an inspection. I wonder what they will try to make me replace this year.

      When will everyone be here? Drove through Blacksburg yesterday and it was starting to get busy.

      Update picture, stock wheels back for now, headliner still out, budget might kill that project for a while.
