      Today's progress...
      Kickin the day off...Nik layin out the wood and drawin up some lines

      Trunk torn apart

      Michel fiddlin around with the management

      Baseboard being laid

      Hey...there's a hole in that board

      Keeping the spare tire


      Management mocked up. Setup is tentative

      Cutting out the top board/cover


      Quick snap. Booty content x2

      Pics don't do the cover justice, but Nik cut out it out nearly perfect! The curves of the board hug the curves of the trunk liner

      Thanks again Nik and Michel for making this build go perfectly so far!!

      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] That's what you've got on your new Jetta right?? Like I posted in your thread, looks gorgeous! I've always admired your previous builds and definitely your photography.
      Can't wait to get those bad boys in and experience a world of difference.

      Thanks man. I love the quality of them. Can't say anything about the ride or drop yet, unfortunately.
      Nothing much to report, but I figure every little update is worthy of being documented...Kept the frame and false floor at Nik's place. Michel sprayed it and sent me a cell pic

      After gathering all the other knick-knacks and doo-dads over the weekend (wire, distribution block, missing fittings, lumber, etc.), there was one we weren't able to avail of, which was a PTC 3/8" fitting. It has been ordered and work will be done when everything else comes in.
      The rears are said to be arriving to ORT this week...which means I am supposed to have them sometime NEXT week.

      Still pushin forward with this build, of course. The clock's winding down and Wuste's almost here. Got a few things done though.

      Layout:




      Odered an OSIR O-Pod Dual Gauge Mount for the 2 Viair dual-needle gauges:




      I suppose it'll sit like this?:


      Also tore out some of the interior panels under which we'll be running the power line. Don't have pics of that mess though. lol

      Rears are said to be here by Monday. Tuesday, we try to wrap up the management and whatever connections need to be made, as well as last minute layout tweaks.

      Yeah, that's what I last read in your thread. Wish I had all the know to be hookin sh** up all on my own. Haha..We're all runnin really tight schedules right now, so it's really hard to come by free days when we can all get together to work on it. And as it is, there are only 24hrs in a day. haha

      And oh damn, pics are up?! I gotta check that out!!
