      nice for an a4 with a built 2.0 and a hta 3076 on it

      i removed the door sills when i had an old body kit installed. i plan on getting some facelift sills installed. so you mat see some black. i need new sills mine are all scratched up.

      veryy nice.... yes thats the exact information that i wanted to know! about the sills. but it should be nice because they are perfectly straight... should look good.

      Taken me a while to reply but it is most definitely worth it.

      After much back and forth comunicating with Ari,we finally agreed on width for dishes and i can say he made the right choice.They are certainly fresh as opposed to seeing them on many VW's.Must congratulate you on coming 2nd and especially on a "Work in Progress" condition.

      This is the 4th set we have built/supplied parts with, 2 of them are in the UK and the other in Canada and it seems to be getting popular with numerous requests and questions.

      I look forward to seeing the car completed for H2O,which i will be attending, and the many other great cars that are being prepared.

      Congrats again to Ari and look forward to seeing the car in the flesh.

      Thank you for the kind words Jeremy. I know the communication was nerve wrecking, back and forth but i learned tons of knowledge on custom wheels and made sure the calculations were right so that everything would fit.. On the stock body there was too much poke but i believe with the pulled quarters it will be perfect...
      Sounds good about your trip to H2o I will be looking forward to meeting you..

      cheers!

      I just checked tracking and the trunk should be coming in today...
      -also im speaking with someone on AZ about purchasing his hood... About half a year ago i noticed that i have a slight pushed in spot on the front of my hood.. You cannot see the dent from first glance but i noticed it when i tried to open my hood... The mechanism just works harder than before.. (its bent somewhere )

      My only request is.. Please smooth the flat edge on the bumpers It looks so odd with pin lined fenders and a flat edge bumper. Delet the door lower edge mouldings as well. Other then that looks good.

      Yes the lower edge moldings are being shaved.. but not quite sure what you mean about the flat edge bumper... Once the fenders were done. the molding continued onto the bumpers... I THINK that might answer your question

      look at where the fenderline is, or was. its a flat edge you pulled the fenders now so that edge is gone. When you do this the bumper still continues this edge. you can see it in the pics you posted. Im saying make sure you get rid of that flatedge. It looks weird when fenders are pulled and the flat egde is taken out and the bum,pers still have it

      Looks dope dude! Reminds me so much of my car... I love it

      Cage looks nice as well. I went through the same process as you, first it was silver... then I decided I wanted it polished, and then finally went with the gloss black. I like what you did. Reallllllly excited to see what the car is going to look like when it's finished.

      Are you going to be running a rear seat? And what front seats are you running?

      Keep up the good work

      thanks man means alot ...
      yeah the cage was purchased green then i wanted to polish it... we got half the cage polished and but then everything started slowing down and some of the dark shades were appearing. so i found one of my silver/chrome sprays and just did a test and it was soo much nicer and shiner then the polished mild steel...
      yeah im still gonna run seats in the rear.. gonna cut two nice holes in the plastic panels by the seats to get a factory look...and unfortunately still gonna run the stock seats... no cash but new ones bound to come sooner or later...

      by any chance do you have any pics of the floor mounting of your cage? i dunno if i shoot cut the carpet or have just drill it through the carpet.. i gotta think of something clean.

      you must mount the cage feet under the carpet. cut the carpet arount the car bar and slip it back over when your done. if the cage is mounted on top of the carpet and you get into an accident the cage can slip and shear the bolts, folding the bars around you..............not good. that s the way i did mine and myy buddy did hid. he got hit in the rear at a dead stop by a woman doing 45 mph and the car crumpled around the rollbar. good enough for me.
