      Yeahhh but it just means I'll have battle scars on my fenders. Then when I graduate, not my daily and back on air I'll have even more of a reason to have it spend sometime in the body shop

      No it's still there. Just wasn't happy with the way the brackets fit/worked. Might try something different later

      It is funny how that happens... I did two back to back installs. First GTI was a complete horror show, huge PITA, but then my GTI was so easy everything came out with no issues.

      I had to remove the axle bolts once on my TR GTI. That was by far the worst install. It took two days simply due to having to take breaks before I murdered someone.
