      you did a number on that stance buddy. Lookin real good. I might rock it hoodless when mine gets back on the road because I'm too poor to get one.

      Looking good Will. Is it just me or does it look like your motor sits flatter than the vr6 normally does??

      Thanks guys,
      reasons for the "hood" ride:
      1: Broken Hood Cable
      2: Bad Motor mounts. Especially the front.

      I wasnt about to put a dent in a VR hood, so I took it off for safe measure.

      Punk made a very good observation. That sucker lies flat cause the front mount is done.
      Stage 2 derlins coming, just awaiting goodies from 1stvw parts and BFI.

      I guess it just depends on the car....

      I think this looks hot. The stance and the lack of hood and the wheels give it a muscle look..

      I see a guy around my way that goes without a hood on a Corrado and it looks unfinished and low budget...

      But then you see all the cars Performance VW shows withot hoods and they look smokin!

      This one looks hot.

      delrins are probably going to be excessive...

      I have the yellow ones and my motor almost doesn't move at all, feels pretty damn close to stock

      are you going to do the delrin subframe bushings as well?

      Maybe too excessive for this set up, but I have gone nuts, and will be going very far in debt soon for the next phase of this cars life. Provided I dont lose my job this week.

      hood is actually fine, resting comfortably in my dining room.

      Like I said with a bad front motor mount, I didnt want to risk denting it.

      Broken hood cable is just a bonus.

      BTW, anyone know a good way to remove the rear glass from the hatch without destroying the seal? Or will a new seal be required and cutting the old one out?
      I have never taken the rear glass out before, and you can tell by my post count im a noob.

      its 50/50 for me removing the rear window without trashing the seal
      the seal is $150

      rear offset is perfect for once, not all "hood" and poking

      I can at least give you this hint. take your time in cutting the silicon from the backside of the window. Make sure you cut all of it before you try and remove the glass.

      True story... ask my buddy ben who got cocky and just pressed on my hatch glass that ended up all over the floor

      if by paint you mean clear then YES.

      Carbon, Gold, & Polish. Who else besides me do you know that is crazy enough to blend all 3? And pull it off?
      No one else. Thats right.

      EWW.. Paint it or don't do it.

      Your car looks good but get a lid on it

      Also those delrin cross member bushings are super annoying to put in. You have to pull it and you better have a press cause thats what I had to do.
      They were so hard I just took them out and put newer stock ones in. Much better IMHO

      I'm thinking about it. Gives me a good enough reason to powdercoat the front crossmember while its out, and then the subframe too.

      not feelin the no hood thing... reminds me of the rusted _______ (insert body panel) trend.
      so you'll be doing the hatch and the hood in carbon?
      is the weave a dark green? :figures crossed:

      not feelin the no hood thing... reminds me of the rusted _______ (insert body panel) trend.
      so you'll be doing the hatch and the hood in carbon?
      is the weave a dark green? :figures crossed:

      I had to be like Remuz2fly4u, hoodless in 09.

      Im putting on the carbon hood for fixxfest, which will be the last show for the car (for a while). I have plans for the carbon, dont worry, and thanks ein for a wicked idea.

      Zack, your car always looks sweet man. Can't wait to see it next spring man! I might tear mine down this weekend..... Gettin ready to send it up to NJ to Dave to do his magic as he does some ridiculous paint work.


      Thanks.
      Spring? probably not for me, I will be doing slow work.
      Congrats on your car getting painted by Dave. And was this a plug for me to get Dave to paint mine too?
