      SoWo was an absolute blast. I had a great time hanging out with some old friends and making new ones







      On the way home my GPS inadvertently took me through THE US-129, The tail of the dragon. It was a blast.

      For all the air ride haters out there the car was STOUT, it handled it so well that my oil temps started to skyrocket I really need to figure out an external oil cooler setup. My buddy took some videos on my phone. They are uploading now so I'll probably post them sometime soon. It started pinging pretty bad and we were just bull****ting most of the time while following some cars.

      The tree of shame


      Just in the one run through I saw 2 bikes and a car off in the ditch. This was on a dry sunny day. Also had a biker try to commit suicide into me around a corner. I was on the outside, in my lane

      Finally found a good place for the stickers I've been getting from buying sht




      Took off the compo's for a little bit. Its crazy but I kinda like it more on the sebrings Its nice not having to worry about bending a wheel or scraping a lip.

      I like it with the Sebrings on there also...looks dope either way but, I agree, not having to worry about messing up spendy wheels also makes life a little less stressful.

      A few more I found from SoWo




      A few days after I got back to Ohio I guess I was driving a little too low and way too hard Destroyed the inner portion of my drivers side axle. 50 bucks later she's as good as new

      Sorry I haven't updated in a while.

      Not much new to report on the MK2 front. I did get a Golf R tho Loaded Candy White 4 door.



      I havent driven the MK2 in weeks and I'm considering putting up the GLI for sale. The wheels are already on the chopping block.

      Well its been a year since this has been updated, not much new to report. Traded the car to a friend and three months later I missed it Picked it back up and did a little bit of cleaning up in the bay. I need to get some time to find a few electrical gremlins, but other than that shes good to go.





      And one of the .:R

      So I finally had a chance to dig into the car a little bit this weekend. Figured out that the battery drain I had was literally a drained battery fan decided it didnt like the battery anymore and chewed a hole in it.



      Fan shroud looked pretty nasty, was one of the things I hated most in the bay

      From this:



      To this:



      Its not perfect, but it will do for now. I want to get a better rad/fan setup that can be hidden better.

      Gotcha. I'll see if I can make it out

      I still need to put the fans back in. I picked up a smaller battery so theres a ton of clearance in there now.


      Might be going to pick up a Touareg tonight
