I always get a lumpy when I see this.
Another useless textual update:
CCW's are going bye bye. It was fun for a little having wheels on that end but after going to h20 and seeing them on the first three cars I laid my eyes on was a bit disheartening. I'll be going back to 17's and running something most of you have seen before. I think this will be the final set of wheels for a while and I'm going to start working on my air management in a serious way to match the wheels theme
Update: big project this winter is so clean up the management and get the hardlines in. Not the most epic of projects but seeing as I'm at school and the car is in storage I can only work on it over breaks.
So being home for break this week I got a few things taken care of. I placed the order for all the air goodies I need... 7 port 5 gallon skinny tank, purchased a second 400c compressor and I have one laying around so i'll be running 3, don't ask why. All new water traps (really wasn't happy with the Numatics) and all the needed hardware and fittings for the hard lines.
Big thanks to Will, again for all the help.
Sadly I wont be able to start the majority of the project until winter break, but I started the prep work today. My current wood frame bounces around allot and doesn't fit flush. As many of you know the MKV trunk is not perfectly square. There are allot of things perturbing out and the back (toward the rear seat) is less wide then the front (in front of the hatch) This wouldn't be an issues except the lip from the trunk hangs over
Spark notes: To make a suitable stable frame like I wanted it had to be pieced together once in the trunk. After talking to GTIzlatko at H20 and seeing his setup I followed his lead with my own touch. I created a frame that expanded once the front piece slid into it's slot. Holding it firm in place.
I have the false floor and some other little things made but can't show them yet, gotta be a little exciting. Again I know it isn't much, taking it real slow since I don't have all the parts and I wont be able to finish until Winter Break.
Will have more shots of the car with new wheels and some other stuff soon
Heard the UPS truck outside my house today and went outside to see what came. The driver was inside the truck moving things around for a few minutes. When he came out he told me he had like 3 boxes and a few long packages.
What came in..
New tank, all my new fittings, flow controls, compressor new water traps and the long packages were bolts of fabric.
With the new frame made I started laying things out.. Not good enough. Got back on the phone with Will and ordered another compressor and some wiring needed to supply more power.
Theres allot more then what is shown in the shot below thats just what I fit in the frame for a quick cell phone pic.
