getting the last few parts together. but i haven't been sent any pics yet.
but i know the battery is being put in the trunk today, and the new top is being installed Friday or saturday.
xpost from my MK3 thread
this was just sent to me
and i got these parts.
this heat shield is 1 of only 3 NEW ones at dealerships in the country. all 3 just happend to be here in Phoenix and it was delivered to my dealership just a few hours later. score
and i got this on eBay. a MINT condition black boot top cover.. double score
and yes the table cloth ROCKS dont be jelly
yup they told me that.
i needed anything to cover up the area instead of using the crappy looking one from the GTI. plus i didn't want all the fuzzy stuff on the sides, we would have cut that off anyhow. just needed this piece.
you may want to call them and say you don't need them. they seemed clueless as to why no one picked them up.
of course its gonna make it

i also wouldn't say i am a cabrio fan, but i've had the MK3 GTI VR6 and Jetta GLX in the past, and wanted to complete the trio of body styles.
i've been told the swap is 98% done. Just need some new properly fitting plug wires and the C2 flash should arrive today. it should be running by days end!! s hit just got real yo
because C2 contacted me. and its a NA VR6, the software isn't brain surgery or anything new.
It is an Audi Exclusive color called Ipanema Brown Pearl
If you are looking at brown a few of the others i was looking at were: Audi Teak Brown and Porsche Macademia Metallic,
well i finally got to go play with the car again today for the first time in a while. I didn't want to get in the way of the masterminds doing the real work, so i figured i could do some arts n crafts type stuff... like putting Rattle Trap sound deadening material in the car. now this is no small task because you need to be a master of a box cutter and a little roller wheel and the ability to cut shapes to any shape you want and not conform to anyones guidelines.
so here's some pics
i wasn't using the heat gun, it's beyond my skill level of equipment. it was just in the pic as a prop
don't forget the trunk
and a few other things i had no part of doing
then an oil cooler popped outta nowhere
OEM cloth tape wrap is CHERRY and awesome
lets count the numbers
