      I thought about it but this seemed a little easier. Kind of regret it now tho. Puts more stress on the weld spots while working on it.....oh welllll

      that is gonna look really bad.

      when we did mine we only peiced in. the problem is that you have to use a flat peice to fill in a curved peice. thats whare a lot of sanding and testing is needed. i used some mesh behind the spot that i filled. this gave it some strength so the plastic glue wouldnt crack around the seem.

      i have no clue why you would cut it like that. that is gonna be all out of shape

      To be honest its lined up pretty straight. I measured it out before cutting and made sure to make it as far from the bend as possible. Still needs work but I will get it right.

      That and when its on the car and all clipped into place it will bend to shape...is what im hoping haha. Wont be perfect but nor am I.

      Chris, did you get the B6 resi?

      From that angle, I think it looks good man.

      You could always use some of that bumper reinforcement mesh stuff if it doesn't seem strong enough.

      And that all brown goodness you were talking about...be soo good.

      Yeah I got the B6 res. It doesn't fit right so I had to make it work. Maybe it turned yellow cause I used some engine degreaser on everything a while back...

      So finally finished my exhaust project..i hope. test pipe installed and had my buddy fab me up a 2.5" down pipe. little better throttle response, louder, and can hear the turbo alot more clear (not sure how i feel about that yet )

      butttt when we welded the exhaust up the tip got pushed closer to the rear valence and im starting to burn through that a little bit.

      Going to New Hampshire to pick up something pretty tomarro too!! I will be sure to keep this updated.

      Im switching to wood grain trim from the silver...so it needs to goooo.

      Alright heres the first look. Cleaned them up a bit more but still have a few things to work out like switchin the dash trim over, diode for the air bag light, and make the main bolts for the driver seat more solid.
