      Hey Guys,

      So I got another GLI going on air here, I'm sure you guys have seen my car around on vortex (I'm a bit of a whore).

      Wasn't hearing back from Mason-Tech, so i called Andrew at Open Road Tuning, he called me back a couple hours later and we got everything set up to go!

      Thanks a ton Andrew!

      Big shout out to Dustin at Accuair, for helping straighten out some confusion that I had!

      Big thanks to Lawrence, Sam and all the other guys @ Calgary Autoworks!


      More parts arriving in the next couple weeks, keeps your eyes peeled!


      Edit: picture was MASSIVE

      Couple of photos of some various things that have been arriving, and one of the not-so-little guy I didn't see till it was too late.......


      ^ Getting a good polish before it goes on.

      Just before I parked for winter...

      and I hit this, don't ask me how nothing got damaged, I won't get into details about finishing the job....


      EDIT: Pictures working, I fail at interweb-networking.

      I thought I had stuff set up, but apparently I didnt think things through enough, its going to happen, know this.

      It's just going to be a little while.

      I regret making this thread because of this.

      It will happen. Just a lot of problems, got fired, got hired you know the drill.


      Scott, thanks again, you run the show.

      That was the plan, but picked up a cheap winter car instead. Got a good deal locally so....

      Also my neighbor built a big workshop/storage that i could park my car in all winter for a case of beer Lucky? I think so.....

      Scholarships came through, so there's money in the bank.

      Got some good deals today, so stuff is on the way...

      Schroth might be involved


      Also doesn't anybody have any fast(er) polishing ideas for the valve cover?
      This is compared to sitting in the garage for days with bloody hands and various grits?

      So I was having some serious problems getting a hold of Scott, so I called up Andrew at Open Road Tuning, he phoned me right back and got me set up that day.

      Looks like the GLI is going on a full BagYard setup!

      Pictures on arrival.

      Look for maybe an epic air ride DIY?

      Heres the update!

      From my understanding, air ride stuff is on they way thanks to Andrew at Open Road Tuning.

      Forgot to mention that I got some more headlight stuff in today, so i might work on the retrofits this week, while my dad is still away and i get to use the shop.



      Got a few of these...

      And to anyone who is kinda wondering about the build name.

      So I plan on laying frame, I just want to go through some of the stuff I have to do to get there

      I already plan on:
      -Frame notch (how much should I take off in order for clearance of the axle?)
      -Front Sway bar is coming out.
      -Fender liners are already gone and pinch welds are being folded.
      -Rolling fenders slightly.

      Any other ideas.

      yeah you can trim your subframe where the control arms hit , once you get your bags in, take your wheels off have the car on jack stands in the front and jack up your control arm and you can see where it hits.
