      Looks good grey

      The coolant bottle connector looks odd though, maybe dremmel it down so it doesn't "protrude" so much...

      I have about 100 feet of each gauge wire, from 22 down to 4. I also bought a box with about 1000 sorted shrink wrap, and about 60 different crimps.

      Then its cut, solder and fun. So far I haven't had any mishap other than damaging the fuse box plate. Everything works perfect and no codes.

      Hmm. Where did you order all of it? I wanna do it, but I'm not sure if its gonna be a waste, as I'm having the bay shaven with the motor swap...

      got the update and its still NOT working... screw tapatalk... i only am really pissed because thats the only way i can post while at work lol.. plus i never knew how to post pics with my laptop... but the phone can do it easily. now i actually have to go the NEWB faq and start trying to figure out how to host pics...

      regardless i'll be working on the car tomorrow i'll be posting pics on my facebook for sure.

      if anyone would like to add me on the fb please feel free to pm me and i'll add you.

      tomorrow in plans
      get piping for intercooler laid out and ready.
      wiring needs some routing
      battery cables have a new idea so i'll attack that
      going to local vw wrecker to find odds and ends. searching for some hid leveling sensors
      might... MIGHT get some lines made up at a local big rig shop. they custom build anything. i'm considering having them make me some stainless lines like the clutch line.
      last but not least- going to guy try to find an wideband AFR gauge. i'm seriously considering the PODI or one of the innovate set ups.
      should have some progress tomorrow.

      found my new wheel set too... dont need to have the 7grand price either. so MORE cash can go into a FULL motor build. depending on what the vw wrecker in my area has for grabs i actually may end up buying another motor... that way i can just rack it and start the process of big turbo,internals,headwork and more can go down slow and steady...

      this has been a HUGE work week for me so it's nice to have wed and thurs off to get a little underhood love done.
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      it looks very good!

      it has a very nice flow to it. the black of the valve cover looks good with the battery cover and fuse box.

      and the lack of apparent wires makes it look cleaner.

      very nice OEM+

      Thanks lol. There are a few other little things I would like tackle. But step two was to clean it after a long dirty winter.

      Well I was home this weekend so I got to play around with my car a little. All I got to do was delete the windshield filler bottle and I shaved the tabs off the coolant bottle, paint it, and tuck the wiring underneath. Not much, but there will be a lot of work done to the bay in 2 weeks from now





      I used a dremel to cut the tabs off and it seemed pretty smooth but once I painted it you could really see the imperfections



      Also, when screwing it back in my thumb pulled the paint off in too spots so I have to repaint it when I'm back

      so i bought some new wheels.... just gotta throw that out there. so the rest of the tucking has been put on hold. it's going to be pretty cool i think.

      18x8 et around 37 so get ready! plus they are Exactly what i had been looking for style wise. just NOT the cost of custom wheels and/or waiting for a company to release them in the U.S.

      just ordered the spacers, and tires. so it'll be nice to be running new wheels that i actually am happy with!

      regardless jimmy!!!

      LOOKS GOOD!!! just cut that plug off. i dont mind sending you my old coolant bubble that is shaved already.... just let me know!
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      Thanks man. Yea it def would look a lot better with the plug gone. I'm thinking about buying a coolant bottle like the one on the BW rabbit from HEP. I'll still keep your offer in mind and let you know once I'm back home!

      The bigger one I used I just warapped a little bit of tape on the end of the tank it and made it snug enough for the plug.

      not even SOWO ready, but this is how it looks as of yesterday. i covered some wires later... but then i removed the intake mani in order to clean it, and 2 o-rings got damaged... o well.

      thanks!

      i still have some more things to do during this weekend... then it will look REAL good.

      imma polish some more parts down there, clean the already polished parts, and then: picture time.

      right now the car has no intake mani nor coolant, nor coolant bottle lol... which is perfect for cleaning stuff.

      so, i have been polishing for the last 3 days...

      long story short, i was doing a coolant flush, and i decided to remove the mani for proper mirror polishing... on wednesday afternoon... lol

      the plan is to mirror polish some parts under the hood... which included the mani.

      upon the removal of the mani, 2 of the o-rings fell from the mani. I made some calls and in the end the OWNER of HEP sent em a text with the o rings info... The funny thing was that i found em! but they sold em as a pack of 100. i'm going to send some 35s to tom@aptuning who has been more than helpful... i will keep some 60.

      if ANYONE ever needs some more HEP mani O-rings, let me know.
      pack of 100:


      after 30ish hours of a lot of sanding, wet sanding, rubbing compound and mother's polish this was the result:

      me, almost done... at this point sanding was done... i was just going to start with the rubbing compound and mother's polish


      all done. its a mirror now.
