      That's because we ordered them and they got the wrong ones in by mistake. That's for a 2L.. VR6 firewall shields cover the whole firewall. We bought the last 3 VR6 covers in the country.

      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.

      and curtis
      of course its gonna make it

      Though I am not a fan of cabrios, that color is money and it appears to be coming along nicely.

      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.

      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
