      Nope... ur bus lug pattern is 5 x 112. My Porsche 914 mag rims are 4 lug and 108 i believe, so it'd take expensive adapters to get them to work... same reason i didn't end up using them on my Fox.
      It was a cool thought anyway. They do seem pretty rare... i've only found one pic of them on the web so far, apparently off a 77 Porsche 914-6.

      Nice... real nice. I knew you guys had been busy with it. I was down that way since i have a storage unit just down the road, so out of curiosity i drove through there & saw ur doors open & heard the power equipment going, but decided not to intrude uninvited...lol. I kind of had to be home by the apocolypse anyway....

      Hey... i might actually be in the market for one of the better coil-over systems if you guys know of anything, run into anything, or know what will work with my car, maybe even with the solid mounts up top. Something good but not horribly expensive. Theres a lot of up/down play in my drivers front strut mount, and i had those done maybe six months ago, & this would be the fourth mount i've replaced since i got the car (counting both front sides) and i'm sick of replacing them so often. I don't know what the deal is... maybe i just got a defective mount, but its annoying me. They just don't seem very reliable. Thats the basic issue really, but i figure, the rear struts need replacing too, so it might just be sensible to put the money towards a kit that i can drop when i want to and maybe a lower stance might take some of the pressure off the mounts. I'm considering all my options anyway.

      Don't know who of you already knows this, but Wasserwerks 10th Annual Show-N-Go is on Sunday June 5th 10-4 @Langan Volkswagen 167 Hartford Turnpike in Vernon CT. Entry fee for vehicles is $10... a little high for working class people, but it says something about free food vouchers on there & doesn't seem too far... upper central CT based on the Wikipedia map... haven't checked it on the GPS yet. DJ, Prizes, Food, On Site Tuning, & Vendors.

      Its also the season for the shows at Mark's Auto Parts in CT too... not too far from Bradley... Monday nights 5-9, but only when the weathers good & things are dry cause its on grass. But thats always a big show, FREE, lots of cars (all types), and some VW guys (most from CVA i think) have been showing in a row in the back & there's a special VW night there August 22nd... if it doesn't get cancelled due to rain like last year.

      Planning on it... unless its pouring. Spent a lot of time cleaning, compunding, & waxing this week... still not done tho... the paint was getting pretty dull & chalky in places, so its a bit of a project... and did some upholstery/trim work thats still in progress. Put my Aoogah horn back in... well.. actually a slightly newer one i picked up recently. Plus i finally put the new top on the Fiat... still have some finish work to go there too, but it looks good. Been busy...lol.
