      Might be giving up on wrapping this thing already. I guess I'll see how I feel tomorrow after I try another panel, but so far the roof and hood are horrible with wrinkles all over that I can't get out. I'm just not good at this. Should've just saved this money for a respray this spring

      Cactus green > vinyl white. How bad is your paint? It looks nice in the pictures. How far away from Bethlehem 18018 are you?

      I agree on the first part, I just wanted a change and to cover up the rock chips without spending 2,500 or whatever on a respray right now.

      It looks good in pictures and from 20 feet away in person but up close you can see the front has literally a million rock chips.

      I'm in Walnutport 18088. 15-20 minutes from Bethlehem.

      I guess I'll just finish this. If it has wrinkles, oh well, it'll only be a few months until I get a respray.

      So, anyone want to buy 25-30 ft of 60" wide vinyl?

      Gave up on wrapping it since I'm now 100% getting a respray this spring. I just didn't care enough to give the vinyl the time it needs to get right. But now I had to rattle can over the washer caps, side markers, and bottom line of the trunk wich I had fiberglassed and it looks like absolute ****.

      Now do I stay Cactus or go with something completely different?

      ^eh, if I change the color it would be something not originally available on a B5

      The thought of brand new Cactus makes me wish I could fast forward three months though.

      If you guys don't mind a 4th wheel for a b5 meet let me know when you meet up at Sheetz, I work like two miles away. I met James before too, actually bought seats off him for my dads old b5 a couple months ago.

      Man, that cactus looks goooooood! Makes me want to find someone to shave my bumper, side markers and and door molding.

      Thinking about pushing the front wheels out at all?

      oh joy. It seems like every 1.8 owner on here currently has or has had an oil leak recently.

      IMG_0877 by ZVincler, on Flickr

      oil leaking from above the oil filter, also red and white crap around there, so I need a new oil cooler. Could be worse I guess.
