      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

      Sorry man, not gonna paint it. But if you still have that part i need, Friday is Payday.

      I'm thinking about it. Gives me a good enough reason to powdercoat the front crossmember while its out, and then the subframe too. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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.

      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?

      got the mounts from BFI. Im going to enjoy my teeth rattling @ idle.
      New Chin spoiler and hood cable are taking forever. BTW its not a 90mm or a 50mm.......its more awesome than that.
      AND, since i am in career termoil, no carbon hood ordered, and no hatch install yet. Ill be putting the stock hood back on after the new cable arrives.

      Nah, I had the option, declined to do it. they even made me confirm it on the computer screen, and i said "yeah, thats nice"
      Looked better on the screen.

      HA, This was a forethought, I actually was told 12/28 for my plate to arrive. I ordered the plate the tues after h20,and amnot going to do as much as i liked, due to certain loss of income. Im searching for opportunities.

      well. if you are happy with them.. cool..
      I liked the old florida tag with a single orange in the center..
      I used to put a round VW sticker on the orange and cover it. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I preferred the 1990's style Florida custom plate that had nothing but the shape of the state in the middle in orange, and the word "FLORIDA" between the lower mounting holes... I hope when I reach "antique" status according to the Florida Statutes, that I can run my old custom plate from the 90's... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Stg 2 BFI Derlin mount in up front, too lazy to do the rear, but my motor still jumps a good bit when goosed. Im pretty sure that will stop once the rear is put in. I will be getting the Trans Mount in Derlin as well.

      Ahh....no hood allows you to see and hear everything.

      UPDATE:
      well....the "hood" ride epic continues. I got a new hood cable, but did not get the new trunion with the bolt for adjustment. As soon as I get one of those, I'll be in business.
      Plans are to pull the core support back out, cut the tab on the driverside frame rail to allow the radiator to sit correctly, put in the new cable and put it back together.
      I did get the stg 2 derlin front mount in, but have been too lazy to do the rear. Too broke to order the trans mount so this Is where I get stuck. The mount did add a noticable amount of power transfer, and I kinda like the rumble felt through the whole car. Raw.
      Attended Fixx Fest 6. Took the win in the Corrado/Scirocco class. Thanks to the voters for the win.

      Week of thanksgiving sucked, but I managed to work on the Rado.
      The HVAC controls had melted 2 times, and I found the culprit, blower motor resistor.
      I ripped apart the dash guts, glovebox, center bezell, and did the hvac control swap once more. Again using a MK3 controler, with the plug wired to the Corrado style plug allowing full backward compatibility to get another OEM Corrado spec one later if needed.
      Oh what fun this was, but the HVAC fully works again, and I have heat in time for the Floridian winter. Yeah yeah. like 40 degrees.
      Was going to do climatronic but that got kinda screwed....more on that after pics.

      old one:

      new one:

      Dash ripped apart.

      Best $20 I spent at H20 this year.

      so that is all working, but alas, I am not.
      I was let go yesterday from my "career" which was a joke that I now see.
      I have to make a move but hell, Dedication:
      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Corrado not getting parted out or sold under hardship. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The Benz is a completly different story, and would be replaced by a MK2 if I had to.
      Next project cause I couldn't afford the eibach bar for the front , was a more affordable rear bar. $22.00 to be exact.

      here's to going back to school. haha

      Sorry you got the can buddy. Sell that Benz and drive a sht box daily. It hurts at first, but you grow accustomed to looking like trash and it numbs the pain. I did it! Lol nah, its not that bad. Mk2's are good daily's.

      I wouldnt mind setting up a nice little labratory at home, rebuilding VR6's is kind of peaceful to me.

      Who knows but again, the car goes nowhere. Ill lose my house before the Corrado.
