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

    1. 09-06-2009 01:48 PM #101
      Installed newly recovered headliner, finally. Not perfect, but much better than the stock quitter from before. Also installed black visors, center console, sunroof handle, smoked dome light, black C pillars, and black rear window trim piece to match.
      Now need to recover the sunroof panel.

      Put together a pvc boost leak detector and pressurized my intercooler and intercooler tubing to discover all the hose clamp connections were leaking boost! And the CO2 pot was not any better! So I am sourcing some t-bolt clamps and hopefully I will find a thicker o-ring for the CO2 pot to fix my massive boost leak problem.
      Hey Evan, I have a low temp fan switch I bought for my rado that I decided not to install as I have yet to see a high temp problem with me being in the mountains. So IM me if you are interested in it.

      My Corrado is also getting a little warm. Have low temp thermo and fan switch. Probably should do water pump and timing belt while I'm at it (hit 55k). Also charger is is need of rebuild, going to have to run NA for a while [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] .
      Got lots to do, and no time to do it. But today it was just a wash.

      Rolled My Front Fenders with the proper tool and still ****ed them up, paint is cracked chipping and fenders dented inwards somehow ??? Guess my GLI is just a beater now as much as I try to make it nice. At least my wheels dont hit the Fenders anymore,not that it matters now.Shout out to Randy at Autobahn Premier Service [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Started getting the parts for my serp setup... VR 120 A alternator, is that overkill? I may just go ahead and get a 90 Amp one... Anyhow, got the tensioner and crank pulley too!
      I just need a VR or ABA waterpump pulley. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Yep, prob going to now, just got to find some of that Trim paint that people always use for the Flairs. SEM , or something isnt that what its called ?

    22. 09-13-2009 02:23 PM #122
      Cool, yeah SEM Trim Black is a very good product, I use it all the time.
      You can find it all over, but I have bought it at Allen Paint off Broadway and at Painter's Supply off Santa Fe. To be honest, you can probably find a better deal online because the stores around here mark everything up big time.
