      I still have a bunch of photos from the shoot. I meant for this to be in the feature, but I forgot to send it.

      I like the headliner samples

      Perforate black leather would look prime.

      I just winged it. I made a cardboard template and just traced it onto particle board. From there I just had to trim it to get it to fit. Wrapped it with fabric I found at the store. Glued and stapled the fabric on.

      I had trouble too. My one strut tower has 5 holes I think.

      IDF makes a jig to make the perfect cuts. It's like $100 though.

      Make a couple copies of the template in the manual, cut those copies out. Spray some spray adhesive on the backside and stick it to the bottom side of the strut tower, the circular template fits perfectly. Use a center punch to make some divots on the spot that you need to drill out. Then drill, it'll take a while.

      I tried that but it didn't turn out too well for me.

      Just ran into a friend and she told me she saved me from a ticket. Two days ago I passed a cop and he swing his car around. I was sure he was pulling me over for no front plate but instead he just turned away from me. Turns out he was on the phone with a mutual friend and she recognized that it was my car and she asked him not to pull me over.

      He didn't like how low I was, that I ha d no front plate, and something about my inspection sticker (which is legal btw). He would have been mad when I aired out and showed him my military ID and my NJ state police card.

      idk if ct cops really care about ride height here, last summer i pulled into the milford meet where tons of actually nice cars go, like porsches, rx7s, supras, etc and i pull in and a cop pulls me to the side. at this point im at 22.5, so im freaking out thinking hes gonna have me towed or what not. instead the guy gives me a 100 dollar ticket for having an air freshener hanging on my windshield.

      Change ride height every time he turns around.

      Did a Vag Com dyno today for Gonzo. While I don't believe the results are as accurate as a true dyno, I was pretty surprised my the results.
