      alright so i just re-circulated the heater core lines for the time being. realized that after two cases of pabst the other day it is possible to put the a arms on the wrong side embarrassing, however i wasnt the one to do that... either way we realized they were wrong when the sway bar made contact with the axles. switched those over and got the front wheels on so the car is no longer on jack stands. gonna work on some more wiring and other loose ends tomorrow. if i get anything worth-while done ill snap some shots for ya guys...







      have a good one, goodnight yall

      Nice car!

      Quick question: I just picked up the same wheels for my 97 vr6 gti, and I was wondering what suspension you are on and if you are running any wheel spacers in the pictures.

      Thanks!

      im just on a 60/40 H&R cup kit. and no spacers on the car. thinkin about pickin up a set for the rear to get them to sit flush with the fender. however you may want to run 205/40/17 tires on them so you dont rub your fenders. unless you have them rolled. mine rub like hell at the moment. but im rollin my fenders soon.

      walked out into the garage today and noticed a small puddle of coolant under the car. traced the leak back to the t-stat housing. pulled it off and found that not only is my gasket broken but it had been hastily installed with some sort of sealant prior to me owning it. gonna try to get that taken care of tomorrow and hopefully back together wednesday morning and get some tuning goin on. not really any kind of rush now that the classics are cancelled...

      heres a little update for those of you following this. went to a local yard to get my needed coolant system parts and got what i needed. when i got home pulled the t-stat housing apart to put my t-stat in and found that the housing i got looked to have had overheating issues of sorts due to some melting inside the housing. went back to the yard to swap with the only other vr and when i pulled it found that it was cracked in two places. mine is only cracked in one. so tired of tryin to track down solid used parts and gonna just order them new tonight. figure i havent cut corners to this point why start now, its only money right? hopefully have the coolant system back in check by the end of the week. gonna try to get a fender roller this weekend and get that taken care of so i can save whats left of my brand new tires .

      oh and it snowed last night and today kinda ridiculous considering i was wearing shorts and a t shirt two days ago but whatever. gonna try to get it on a dyno here soon so i can finish up the tuning and finally have this back on the road.

      have a good one yall

      Gotta love the silicone moon-tune. My buddy's triumph had pretty much every gasket replaced with silicone when it got tore down... smh. Can't wait to see this thing back on the road.

      I may have just missed them, but do you have any photos of your battery relocation? I took the tray out to paint it, and started looking at some ammo cans i've got laying around, and wheels started turning... Just trying to get some ideas on placement.
      Don't get nervous.

      i dont not have any photos of the battery location, it was relocated to the trunk before i got the car. its not mounted down or anything, one of my plans is to do a rear seat delete and cage eventually so i can run new seats and harnesses. but anyhow my batt just sits in the spare wheel well. nuthin special right now.

      got the coolant system back in check and the car is running, fenders were rolled today by (PA-TDI) he did a good job and now i have no more rubbing and also he is a pretty legit dude. found out that the neighbors arent fond of the exhaust on the car but its whatever. all in all it was a damn good day with some good friends, ill get some pics of when im not so tired.

      good night all.
