      Interesting. What's the value of that?

      PS: I've been talking to Dan about a set of rollers too. Could you tell me a bit about the purchase process? You can PM me if you like =)

      If you don't me asking, how many miles and at what price did you get that TT? I'm looking for the same setup (black with baseball) with low miles and it's nearly impossible to find dammit. If you don't want to publicly disclose the info, I'd really appreciate a PM or email!

      yea ill have to do that, u can kinda see it in the engine bay shot i posted
      i dont have half caps, im using BIG washers that are flat (my boy uses them on his ari ride set up)
      reason for the washer is because with the polo bushing the strut caps stick up super high with the design of the polo bushing
      this lets it sit almost flush with very little play room between the new "strut cap" and the body of the car

      Yeah I used the CNC at school to cut them out. I'm positive that even half caps would not work
