      You got your grill filled and painted at a shop? Mind letting me know how much they charged you as that is one thing I need to get done before WiTW.

      I know prices may vary, especially with location difference but a ball park figure so I have an idea is nice. Thanks btw. Car looks great.

      so here are the rs's i picked up for pretty cheap but they need alot of love


      getting rid of the 1 in. lips and getting 2in. lips for the front


      2.5 in. lips im keeping and repolishing


      3 out of 4 waffles were in good condition. i had to take a rubber mallet to one of them




      started wet sanding the 2.5 in. lips. started with 600 800 and 1500 grit. theres still more work needed to be done but i made some progress. im gunna use 1800 2000 and 2200 grit and see where i stand from there.

      before and after progress


      thinking about doing polished faces with black inserts


      new 2in. lips to replace the 1 in. lips


      old hex caps and center caps.

      just got some new hex caps and center caps

      Restoring a set of wheels like that and then seeing your hard work pay off once they are on your car is going to be mad gratifying for you dude.

      Put these on real quick. Didn't really like them when I saw them on other R32's. But they grew on me. There a nice little touch.

      i love coming home to things like this.

      finally got my autopilot v2 digital controller.


      i was going to mount the controller in the cubby but i think it might look silly because of how small the new controller is. might mount it in the ashtray or get maybe a custom molding. ill have pics of the new controller and new trunk setup when its complete.
