      Whatever happened with the leather covers? Did you get to install them?

      Not yet. I have them sitting in my bedroom. I just don't have a shop locally that I trust to do it. I also have another set of seats I need to pick up - So I never have any car downtime.

      Also just secured some wheels!



      I have a thing for Futuras.

      Will start updating the thread a bit more.

      Probably within a few weeks, if it's possible. I need to figure out the hub bore so I can have adapters made. Picking them up this weekend I hope.

      I am wanting to do them all machine/brushed with a tinted clear and gold bolts. But that will take some time to accomplish.

      =)

      Thanks for the bump Z.

      I've been sitting on the wheels for a bit - waiting for all the pieces to come together.

      Ordered a new axle from Parts4Vws - will be here today:

      *Pic for reference

      Also ordered new centercap as one was completely tweaked and effed from MemoryFab's refab shop. Ordered from Koenig guys in Germany (A recommendation from Brandon Jordan) - set me back $125 shipped.

      *Pic for reference (my original set)

      Just got paid for some design work today, so will be ordering tires today!
      215/40/18 Falken 912
      225/40/18 Falken 912

      Also looking to fix the washer tank exploding the other week. With rain coming, i'd like this to function.

      Hartmann RS4 reps will also be up for sale shortly... Looking for $500 + Shipping (tires not included)

      On to some pics!

      This guy broke - come to find it has broken before and had been superglued back on...
      Made my own plug so the washer jets will no longer be used.


      Got all clean on that ish while I was in there.


      Zach - Key Grip. Doing work.


      New Axle it it's native environment


      New Axle got installed. Also confirmed that ball joints should have been replaced (my fault for not ordering) as well as tie rods probably. Will stock up on these parts and do these in the next 5k.

      Thanks!

      So update, front right is still making a whirrring almost faint barking noise.

      I am wondering if all of this is actually coming from the shock, or a subframe bolt. I am getting to a point where I have no idea what is going on with the front end.

      I feel like I want to buy ALL new stretch bolts for everything...not really sure what else to do.

      Something just feels loose in the front right.

      Probably ball joints and tie rods?

      I'm calling ball joints or sway bar bushings based on how the noise sounds under load but not on flat ground.

      But we will be doing tie rod ends, ball joints, and sway bar bushings for Ian soon, so it should eliminate any and all noises

      Ian- you should try and order a new dust guard from KW for the weitecs. I can also check if I have one from the original V1s I bought, I think there might be one in my parts box

      Car's been feeling like poo - so ordered some new FSB bushings.

      Tried to order these on ebay before and while the seller stated MEYLE, they were cheap chinese knockoffs. Second round, Ordered through 1stVWparts.

      Purchased c clamps, new stretch bolts, some new rotor screws and new OEM bushings.
