1992 VW Cabriolet
1963 VW Transporter
That was only the second VW I ever gave up on..the first being the 91 Jetta that I had in the garage before the Cabrio showed up.
Also the 92 green Cabriolet is now in the garage because its an 'extra car' at this point.

"subculture refuses to let this model vw fade away......they are cherished and preserved in spite of logic and economics."
Gave wheels quick 10 minute polish with polisher I got from Auto Zone. They don't look to great, just sanded them to 800 a week or two ago to get rid of the corrosion and it was a really impatient job tbh...but I like them regardless. Blur in pic = only took one >.>
Tomorrow = Good wash, vacuum, interior cleaning, it should be looking slick.

I survived the illeststance Gangbang of 2011
Started painting everything that's black with a satin black trim paint (gas cap today, bumpers, fender flares, 6 piece trim etc later). Duckbill goes on Wednesday. Still wanna space / lower / get rocker trim / repaint rocker panels and repaint chassis frame rail / replace ****ty 10 dollar grille eventually / replace tail lights and cracked side markers / replace throttle cable / buy orbital sander to resand and polish wheels / replace windshield wipers / replace rear view mirror /
Disregard this btw, just my checklist lol.

I accidently left Vanessa's (my Cabrio) top down the other day and it POURED! Seriously, we got 5 inches of rain and I didn't realize the top was down until after it stopped! My car definitely has a personality and whenever she's mad at me, she gives me trouble. (She also self adjusts the volume of the radio when she likes/dislikes a song but I digress) Sure enough - when I drove her after bailing out all the water and drying her out, while sitting at the bus stop she started spewing antifreeze ALL OVER and overheated. I'm stuck at home waiting for UPS today so I can't go get the parts I need but figured I'd try and make it up to her somehow so I've been detailing the engine compartment and detailing the inside of the car all morning. I figure a little TLC can never hurt...
finally got the right belt for the waterpump/PS and crank no more squealing!
recieved a new CSV in the mail that i plan on swapping out in a day or so. I need to get my hands on new crush washers for the fuel line on the rear of the valve
Sprayed the fender flares today. Was really hoping to do the bumpers as well but it took nearly two hours just to get the damn things off (too lazy to take the wheels off, so the screws were a pain to get out.) It gets too damn dark too fast. I have this big ass garage behind me, if there were no tractors in it I would be going to town >.>
Was happy to see this (not happy about 4x4 status):
Before / After:
took apart the front suspension and put the new coilovers in and then spent some time adjusting them and rolling the fenders to stop the tire from rubbing and i still have some body work to do to stop it
if your ganna be dumb you gatta be tough lol
tight is tight, to tight is broken
