(About 140lb smaller now, and so the seats are working even better!)
first I never said anything about pleather. And yes leather wears out way faster than syntetic vinyl and believe it or not the factory seats in the R32 are not leather. Most manufactures don't use leather anymore because it is not as durable as synthetic vinyl and because you cannot tell the different between the two side by side its a no brainer.
its not the fact of reliability or drive ability, it is all the other little things....i drove my black car to work very few times, and one of the last times it ended up with a door ding in my basically flawless shaved flat black doors...but now there is a quarter size ding in it....the worst part is/was, it was on the passengers side, so i didnt notice it for a week or so b/c i dont get into that side of the car, i back my car into my garage, so i didnt notice it till i went to wash the car....
i build my cars to drive the piss out of them....but i would rather enjoy that on a nice mountain drive where i dont have to worry about some soccer mom putting on make up and talking on her cell phone running 15minutes late for work who has no regards in the world for my VW with $10k worth of body work done....
We are all on borrowed time.
It's sad when you say that you hate driving your cars, cause that's what their purpose is. ESPECIALLY, if you have put the blood, sweat, tears, and money into building it.
to each their own...sorry OP for the thread jack
Alright, just updated the first page with some more pictures of the progress. Dash Board, Shifter, and E Brake all interior panels removed and dropped off at the interior shop. Dashboard is almost finished if not done already, and the head liner.
dude, if your going to comment read all the posts....i was not hating in any way at all....just expressing my views on driving a car a lot that has a TON of body work...i think i am allowed to comment seeing that i have one of the most well put together widebody mk4 VW's around....
looking forward to seeing this thing done though!

Interior is finally completed and will be installed when the body work is done. For now its all plastic wrapped and put into storage for now. Rear fenders are welded sanded sealed and primered. Rear fender flares that attach to the rear bumper are plastic welded, sealed, molded, sanded and primered as well. Side skirts have been mocked up but need to be extended to the front by about 12 inches. Front fenders are welded and ground to a smooth metal seam. They have a little work to be done at the bottom where they will meet the side skirts. Once this is done and they are sealed and primed, the front bumper flares will be next. In the mean time the jams and engine bay will be trimmed out.
I have dozens of pictures of the interior completed and the rear bumper and rear fender flares ready for paint. I will post up the interior shots tomorrow and the body work monday.
On a side note, the Tranny Peloquin and Rear Diff Peloquin LSD's have been installed.
