      Scott, have you ever thought about doing this to pull your fenders? Or am I 10 years behind?

      Not your typical ownage, but a great watch for anyone!

      If you need anything just give a shout. Broke my arm 5 years ago but I did it at work and got paid for the 7 weeks I was off. That made it hurt a lot less.

      i've pulled the crap out of my front fenders....a few times. also flared out the rears as well. i went from poking up front to being flush. and from mega poke in the back to minor poke. i used the eastwood fender rolling tool to do it all though, didnt know about the phone book method at the time. i've heard of it being done, but not sure how well that works or what the consequences may be. but it sure seems easier than a baseball bat! i spose if i want to pull my fenders anymore i can use a phonebook and just air up/air out about a dozen times

      I'm going to need to roll my fenders and I know Cory rents his, but I'm kind of afraid to use one. I feel like I'm going to end up just ****ing everything about the fender up.

      I always start with napa first anyway. I can usually find what I am looking for for the Jetta at about half the price. Same OEM parts too.

      Oh I know what that little baby is. You'd be surprised! They had some crazy vaccum connecter that lives under the intake manifold for me that I jsut assumed they wouldn't. Sure as ****, they had it at the DC (which is in Point) and I was able to pick it up 15 mintues later.

      There is a chance that I might have that in my garage, from when I broke down my brother's hyrolocked motor. I'll take a look tonight in my parts bin for ya.. If I have it, it's yours for free. But I think I may have throw it away, thinking that there's no chance in hell that I or anyone else would ever need it.

      There is a chance that I might have that in my garage, from when I broke down my brother's hyrolocked motor. I'll take a look tonight in my parts bin for ya.. If I have it, it's yours for free. But I think I may have throw it away, thinking that there's no chance in hell that I or anyone else would ever need it.
      Wish I would of saw this earlier, just went to VW dealership that isn't actually open till thrsday now and ordered it... I was officially there first "parts sale" , only 16 bucks, cheaper than ECS by the time you figure in shipping.. Thanks alot for the offer though
