      Andy.

      I'm loving what I'm seeing thus far. Your use of the dash cubby is ingenious.

      You said a "washer filler neck delete".

      Explain. I'm curious now.

      Picked up the air ride kit from powdub

      - Dash cubby gauge set up
      - Worked on my trunk set up for the compressors

      i wanted to "clean" up the bay abit but still use the washers...so i took the neck out but left the tank in and capped it off at the top.

      Close up shot, please?

      I like the idea.

      I hate that ugly stem, but need my reservoir for obvious reasons.

      ya ill take some later today for you.

      you have to:

      -move the coolant tank to the side (2 bolts)
      -take out bolts/one bracket out (that holds the filler neck)
      -take neck out and cap off

      That's awesome dude. Thanks.

      How hard is it to fill now? Not that it matters because I rarely ever have to refill mine seeing as to how large the reservoir is.

      it seems i never have to fill mine up in the gti too but the ford thats a different story ha...


      you can re-use the neck but dont push it on all the way or a flex funnel when filling.

      After standing in the freezing cold and looking at the actual reservoir, it's very self-explanatory.

      I promise is the last time I'll bug you... but where might one find the cap you used to block it off?

      Thanks again Andy.

      Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.
