      Crazy how many tools I've loaned out to never see again, and usually I never remember who I loaned them to...Hand tools, sand blaster, nail guns, saws, etc....Bastards!
      Sounds like old age... My dad did the same thing... he would loan tools to friends and never see them again... now I rarely let anyone borrow anything... sucks not being able to help at times but chit cost too much and too hard to find when you need it.
      Smile it will get Worse!!

      This is the goal for now:


      Maybe eventually this narrowed/low:

      People tend to be more responsible when they own the tools they use. I think it's human nature, I am more likely to loose or misplace something if it didn't cost me nothing.

      Gonna have to go get a new 1 for now anyways, so I can get 2 cases torn down. Just chalk it up as a loss I guess....Need a socket for the flywheels as well.

      No, its actually on 2 195s, 1 205, and a doughnut spare until I can get some other wheels. Found a set of steelies and 185s for cheap with new tires, but I have to make sure they fit (not sure on the offset)

      Heres the thread for it
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...t-intro-thread.

      Im plannin on lowering this one. That way I can drive my lifted vw in the summer, and a low one in the snow

      And to keep it in theme with aircooled, the baja is doin fine lol. It broke a belt gaurd bracket from vibration, so its runnin naked now lol.
