      Just got these in the mail today:



      The fogs are a little pitted but these were an awesome deal so I'm happy. Since my bumper's off right now they should be a little easier to make a custom bracket.

      Me too I missed having them. Driving at night with just these projectors and no fogs didn't give me too much visibility, I can't wait to get these on and see a little better.

      Fogs aren't going to do much for visibility besides lighting up the sides of the road 10 feet in front of you better

      I'm planning on doing HID with these later on so that might help more with visibility.

      An update on the car with lots of pics, changed the timing belt tensioner on the car:



      And my dad helped me mount the fog lights, and since the bumper was already off the car, was a little easier:



      Here's the bracket we made:




      The passenger side needed the plastic trimmed for an easier fit so an electric grinder was used:



      Then I got the rest of my christmas present in the mail today:



      So now I'm running 20mm in the rear and 12.5mm in the front Here's a before and after of the rear.

      Before:



      After:





      And a driveway shot:

      yeah I was just thinking that i should debadge my trunk to make it look cleaner. I think if I make enough money over the summer I'm going to pick up some ecs coilovers, and as for wheels I'm waiting for the right moment where I get some for a steal, but so far it's been a long time

      What do you use to debadge? a heatgun? and does it rip off any paint?

      previous owners are nice like that sometimes. I'll have to look into it more.

      That brown leather is so sick. Nice car. Some coils and wheels would be prime.

      Thanks! And yeah I can't wait to get it lower with a good set of wheels I think my favorite wheels are porsche twists or lm's so eventually I want to get a set of one or the other. I would only be able to afford reps though even then it'll be a while.

      any type of thin string like fishing line, run between the badge and trunk, get a corner to peel up.. and go from there.. you a little goo gone to get adhesive off. then use a good compound wax and buff it of wax it really good. just keep waxing and it will look perfect

      I tried floss when debadging my Jetta, such a pita. I broke it often and it made me wanna . I feel like fishing line would have worked much better. Also plan on debadging, clean is good. Leaving the 4 rings though.

      thanks guys!

      I have some fishing line somewhere, I was thinking about using floss but since you had problems with it I'll go with the fishing line. Right now the car is in a situation I just bottomed out and now its making noises when I downshift if anyone can help me out I already made another thread.

      I think I know what it might be. But in other news, I learned how to lower cars in photoshop so here's my result:
      Slammed:

      And this is the height I'd probably realistically take it:


      If anyone else wants to see their car lower I'll help out
