      then hit recirc again .
      this will show the water temp on your heating controls .

      my dash pod is on its way out so reads high . i used it to get confirmation that i'm running within tolerances .

      my car came with the metal water-pump impeller , so that was one less job to do
      my temps may go up when the front-mount goes on , but you can get a lower temp thermostat to help with this if i need it .

      Thanks man. I am trying. I want to get the car mint, and then will start thinking about some bomb diggity wheels again. I want the car to feel and look new and I have a lot of things that need work.

      I'm sorry for not sharing more pics - they are all just around.

      Waterwerks 2011 Day One

      Left Lafayette with Dom (copilot) at about 9am after washing car and fitting oem Bra. Made various stops along the way.



      Oem Bra did not fit properly around lower fender areas and due to flapping at speed, I have officially rubbed through the paint and primer on my fender. It's a nice dime sized HOLE in my paint. Awesome.

      Other adventures were several overheating scares, but nothing major and while trying to check my oil level, the dipstick tube pulled out completely... :-/ So after 20 minutes in a Chevron parking lot, that was fixed and we were back under way.



      Otherwise, car did really well but not worrying about overheating and damn paint rubbage... would be a lot better.



      Staying in Portland for the evening and meeting up with Clun, then hopping off to Tacoma to meet up with the GE and Roti guys.

      Will update with pics!

      do you not have that special screw that comes with the bra that lets the bottom flap attach? Totally sucks about the paintwork

      It was not included and although I have had a bra on my Jetta and actually fabricated replacement clips for that, I did not think it was going to be necessary on this - obviously I was wrong. It was actually not that button that did the damage, it was the metal L that holds onto the fender which is covered in felt.

      Chillin at the host hotel right now, waiting for more people to show... pretty dead here right now.

      That's a very weird spot for it to rub through. Sorry to see that.

      You need clearbra. Just had front half of the car covered following the new paint. My OEM bra is collecting dust in the garage.

      You don't own a TT, you support it: 2001 LZ7W coupe; REVO chip; Forge hoses and DV relo; MadMax DV; , OSIR corners, DEFCON2, 986 seats, 18in OZ Vela II; trunk mat; all weather floor mats; 4-piece Votex kit. My Mods and Primer Porn here: http://public.fotki.com/TTQ2K2/.

      How is that running you $800? You bring it to the dealership or something?
