      A German thing, and a not so German thing
      12-25-2011 03:36 PM #1
      Well I should have started this 3 years ago when I first bought the car, but now that I have some free time I'm going to put one together. I'll start from the very beginning....
      The day I fell in love and drove her off the lot

      The first Photo shoot


      And some more pics from after I lowered her

      After I cracked my bumper in Philly


      Started cleaning the bay up and added the mini keg heat shield which I replaced with my enormous AEM


      H20 2010



      front end makeover







      337>towtruck

      More to come as I go through my hard drive

      A German thing, and a not so German thing
      12-25-2011 10:42 PM #2

      At CBTuning

      Then came the time to build the Moda's









      Then I added a rack because we all love em


      With the lowered Radio Flyer




      Then I added a fairing

      And at VAG Fair 2011 I realized that in order to run a fairing on the rack I would need to run smaller wipers. Over an hour drive in pouring rain with no wipers

      But it was worth it for this. Not bad for the first and only time I showed it. 8 people in our club showed and 4 of us placed.

      Then when I was jacking the car up to check the rear control arms I found this. Remind you there was under a year and maybe 7000 miles on them.





      So I addressed the rust sent the arms out to get rebuilt and spent the following 2 weeks trying to get the POR15 off of my skin
      I also too this off because of obvious reasons. Thank you PA roads for sucking

      And I got the car back on the road just in time for H20 2011


      Hey Jimmy

      This is why I'll be showing next year...Less cleaning up afterwards

      And Then I reached the point of no return and decided to lower her as much as possible
      Ultra top secret TT lowering parts




      I need to take the front collars out and remove the rear perches now and roll the fenders
      Random interior shot

      And this is how she sits now

      Getting in and out of the garage is a bitch and a half

      A partial project

      Thanks stranger! I was never one for documenting much, but I figured it was a time. And the control arms will need to be replaced in a matter of a year is my guess. As long as they stay free and dont cease I'll use them.

      Well I did some work today. Then I realized I had lent out my torx drivers and never got them back. Guess I'll be running out to get some this week.

      Problem is how do I jack it up to get to the coils
      My guess is I can jack the rear up and put it on stands and that will be enough to get under. And if not I'll just jack it up at the rockers and add more dents

      I'm going to go buy 2 more stands and jack it up from the rear and hopefully it will allow enough clarence for the jack.

      if you drive it up on a 2 x 12, will that not give you enough clearance? An 8ft 2 x 12 at HD will probably only cost $3-5, plus maybe 25 cents/cut to have them cut it into four 2ft pieces. that'll give you an additional 1.75inch clearance from the floor. just a thought.

      Those are 2x8x4's and I would normally just add another piece to make it 4" high, but the motor is ripped apart so I can't move it . oh the situations I get myself into haha.

      But since you haven't destroyed your pinch welds yet maybe this:

      Hmm I like the hockey puck idea. I may need to do that if my current plan fails.

      So small update. I tried to jack the car up by placing it on the tow hook area (where I normally do) and realized that the low pro jack won't lift high enough to get the jack stands under. Guess its time to try the hockey puck

      I made these lifesavers back when I had the slammed mk3...


      They work like a charm. The two step up makes it easy to use and lets you clear the lowest fronts. The top is just over 3.5 inches and the stopers are commonly used
