      First Year of shaving conclusion:
      Finally finished up the bay after 5 months of almost everyday working on it.

I'd Like to give a hugeeee thanks out to the cornstatus crew who helped out a ton through this project.

      Big thanks to Ken, Zach, Ross, Rob, Pat, Jason and everyone else that came and helped along the way. Theres no way this bay would be what it is today with out these people.

      Another big thanks goes out to devin (you probably know him from the vortex), for all the info and help along the way.

      Thanks everyone! Alright got some updates soo far, Started ripping everything apart the past 2 nights. Currently in the barn right now chipping away at wiring. Not sure if I want to shave the rain tray, and run the wipers for daily and then take them out for shows. Cause even though I have the mk3 I still want to daily this car, cause its a vw its meant to be driven! So all you garage queens need to grow up

      Got the front clip off, fenders, wipers ect.


      Did a phenomenal job of snapping top fill on the radiator trying to get the hose off haha looks like a nice new shiny radiator will be in the works





      The girlfriend stopped by for a bit and helped....


      Hopefully gonna decide what im doing tonight or tommarow about the tray so i can really start on the wiring!
