    Thread: What did you do to your "Dub" today?

    1. 04-08-2011 09:19 AM #751
      Done recently:

      20th AE lower center console with cupholders
      Brushed aluminum look with Scotchbrite pad
      Remote antenna extension (amazing range now!!!!)
      K&N drop in with air box modded
      Spray paint exterior plastic trim including lower valances and radio antenna mount

      Installed Monday:

      20th AE suspension (coils and shocks)
      Strut mount bushings
      Tierod ends
      Alignment
      Dunlops…225/45/r17 on my Audi Fat Fives
      Prothane dogbone mount
      Brake pads, rotors, flush, and new fluid
      Serpentine Belt

      The car now sits lower and more level. Believe it or not, I got a 1.5” drop in the back and 1” drop in the front. The 2.0 suspension was crap!

      Just ordered the Audi TT/ R32 control arm bushings Tuesday.


      To Do:

      HD control arm bushings install
      Grey leather door cards for rear doors (looking for a set)
      Replace rear door window molding (looking to purchase)
      Finish install of window regulator

      Possibly window tint if I can find it installed for a good enough price...$140 for my 4 door hatchback is the best quote so far.

      The day after I installed it, we had that little rain/snow mix. I drove it home from Red Robin with no problem. Got home and took the filter off to see how wet everything was. The Filter was wet but the pipe and everything else way dry. Water isnt really an issue unless u submerge the cone and create a suction.

      TONIGHT!
      On my way home after dropping off my daughter my car quit at the intersection of Chambers & 40th. When I got home I confirmed what I suspected.


      I'M ABOUT READY TO PUT A MATCH TO THIS THING AND TAKE IT TO THE JUNYARD!

      Technically it is a VW-Porsche so I think it will be OK to post in here. I put the original wheels back on and raised the front. Gotta take it back to the tire shop, they put one of the tires on the wrong direction, didn't notice until I was raising it. Had to roll the rear fender lips slightly to keep the tires from rubbing.

      How it looked when I got it.


      Pics from this weekend.

      One down one to go! The GLI is back on the road. I wonder how long it will take before my brother breaks something else.

      Back on the road! I got her running Sunday night. Took it to the car wash tonight after work to spray off engine and check for leaks. I rebuilt a junkyard head with HD intake/exhaust valve seals, upgraded to a MLS head gasket and ARP bolts. I'm sure glad Casey mentioned that Scirroco 16v was at Colorado in the junk yard thread. So far so good.

      Went for a drive and just enjoyed the sound of the stg IV grenade that I finally got in this week, plus was in awe my new oil cooler and the sub 200° oil temps after a spirited run .

      Does packing 9 teenage orphans into my Golf wagon count as doing something today?
      Course I once had 13 younger ones and two adult teachers in my Golf Country...

      Ahh Africa! lol

      Shimmed the rear spindles to correct my rear toe on the rado. Drivers side wheel bearing was feeling rough so I swapped that out too. I think it is time to look for a donor car since I do not think I will be sticking with a charger less engine!
