      yeah i though about getting one too but so many other things need to be fixed on my prject. Go new = less problems, but going different is a gamble with big payoffs.

      not yet...still think im going with the rear seat deal....could be cool, and they wont be muffled by the top with it down, if the went in the rear decklid......ill be making that soon too...with green indoor/outdoor carpet....lol

      i was thinking of rear mounting the speakers so they dont stick out too far from the seat back....well street sign...., then making some weirdo grill to protect the speaker face...

      My guess on the exhaust difference comes from the German built Cabby vs the US built Golf. I'd just pony up the extra $$ for the new one that will be guaranteed to fit right.

      For the most-part, I don't approve of "Rat-style" builds. They start off bad and get worse until the car gets junked or parted out.

      However; I like the time and attention to detail you are putting foward on this.

      This is...strange.... and amazing.... I think I've discovered my cars long lost twin.

      You have the exact same outlook as me, the whole "I don't give a sh*t about what's 'proper', I'm gonna do what I want!" Awesome! I love seeing other rats, but with this one I feel like I'm staring at my own car, only different colours.

      So you can put leds inside the glass to make it look like a halo? I want to tun this upside down. Do you know where to get the leds?

      Usually you buy the lights with the LED rings already in them. ECS carries these FKs with the Halos already fitted: http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-...lights/ES9477/

      No, Pepe wants Halos. Sorry for jacking your thread.

      Can you post a picture of the hole in the housing? Depending on the style, you may be able to just pick up a cheap replacement pigtail at the parts store.
