Unfortunately, the vr hasn't been running like it should be. So I've hooked it up to vag-com and found a few issues that need to be sorted. Ordered some parts, as well as the suspension components so that i can finally get to the cx racing coils.
Hey guys, been busy with another set of midterms and finally got around to replacing some of the parts i had ordered 2 weeks back. Unfortunately, maintenance>coil over install so i had a day replacing a few parts and issues i ran into.
Upon finding this:
I got around to repairing the harness that appeared to be chewed/melted, installed some fresh oxygen sensors, and the knock sensor, as well as a good throttle body cleaning. Poured some fresh coolant in and the car is running how she is supposed to.
Played around with the coils, got the car sitting pretty nicely. Coils have settled since this picture and ride great. Couldn't be happier with them.
And I've ordered myself one of these since i can't stand that stock wheel meant for a bus.
Yea thats my plan as well, my sisters heading to europe in a few months gonna get her to ship over a few of these lips.Awesome price I'm definitely going to hit up a dealer when I return to Portugal again. Plenty of SEATs over there.
In the meantime, my wheel has come in and I've got it installed and working, what a nice wheel it is!
Ill grab some pics this weekend.
Just ordered these for my interior...
Ive decided that the blue visors aren't going to look all that great without the rest of the interior being done, so I'm going to pull the headliner and pillars, spray them black and rewrap the headliner in a black suede most likely.
Whats everyone using as an adhesive for headliners? I read up that the 3M Super 77 is garbage, and the 3M Super 99 is what i should be looking for. Can anyone with experience confirm?
The dash, knee panels, front and rear center consoles, glovebox, door cards,and rug is all blue.
Or you can find a blue Colour Concept interior. I'm pretty sure the Canadians got these as well in small numbers.
And these Euro Recaros look sweet
Been taking the interior apart to get started on the pillars and headliner.
Yesterday i found some time to do a few smaller things, added the cluster rings, and wired in a rear fog. As well as city lights in the dual rounds.
Material came in for my adapters/spacers.
Painted the a and b pillars and they came out looking perfect! So happy with them. Only pic i have of them is this one in the background.
Polished the lips on the ROH's for the daily.
Got the 512's mounted and threw them on the car
And one pic of my two babies..
You can never go wrong with an ABF though
Picked up some paint supplies for a few misc items and stopped by Euroline to check the status of my custom muffler. And i found out that the muffler is being manufactured and tested this weekend ! Should be in sometime next week
Got the ecodes and badged grill finally back on for the daily. Im progressing with the headliner on the gti and filling in some rash on the modena faces. Didnt do much this weekend as the exhaust cracked and opened up right after the cat and before the resonator on the golf. Ended up fixing that this weekend instead of doing work on the gti.
Pic from a local get together, next to a friend of mines VRT.
I finished painting a few pieces last week..
Looking all sad without a front end..
And the latest I've been working on..
Filling in some rash and scuffs.
I still have to go over each and fix a few more spots but the majority of it is done, wheels should be redrilled tomorrow or tuesday. Ill take some pics of the process at work.
Wont be doing too much today because of the EURO. GO CROATIA GO
