      Had a great time at H20 as expected, even though my GTI wasn't there, was great all the same. Ran in to some good people and some I have been waiting to talk to / meet up with for a while.

      Stopped and talked to Larry and scooped a rear strut bar. We shall see if it makes it to the car, I like how they look, but I'm not sold on touching the rear towers..


      Spent most of the weekend cruising around with some buddies and their .:R's. My Passat did it's job. Solid ride, just had a little coilpack problem on the bridge, but it's nothing a little JB couldn't fix.



      GTI progress is still underway!

      Since that strut brace really isn't functional anyway what i would do is not even bother bolting it into the strut towers. Go get some felt put it on the inside of those mounting points, and just expand it till it sits tight between the towers and holds itself in place. since it would be purely for looks that'll solve your problem of not wanting to mess with the towers, and also if you want more space itll be easily removable.

      Yeah. I might just put it in place and use 3M tape...then cover the sides with the carpet. We shall see.

      Car is currently done with primer. Time for final blocking and then cleaning / scrubbing before paint

      You shouldn't even need 3m tape the car it came out of it was literally just expanded till it was tight enough to hold itself in place

      This car has taught me patience.

      Anyone have anything to say about the van-wezel vr lips? (not jom). I'm sure they aren't perfect, but my OEM CL lip is pretty beat....

      Stupid to have a fresh car with a crappy lip...OEM or not...

      There not perfect no but slightly better. I think if you look on euro enginuitys page they showed a video of crashing the van Wetzel into a curb it eventually broke but not as quickly as otheres

      Thanks thanks. And it's possible it may have a new set of shoes to roll on. Scooped a lil somethingsomething. I also ordered up a vanwezel VR lip. They seem decent. Can't get my hands on a OEM one yet.

      Teasers ftw.



      And yeah. This color is absolutely sick.
