Don't Like the red brakes but nice start
To be honest, I’m tired of blowing up the “What did you do to your MkV today?” thread and figured I would start my own (seems all the hipsters are doing it these days). It'll basically serve as a place to dump pictures and show the progress I’ve made. Anyway, I purchased the car on December 13th 2011, a few days after my 22nd birthday. Once I sold my BMW 3-series I knew I was going to buy an MK5 and waited patiently for the right one come along.
Day I picked her up:
(Bought it with tint, not sure of the %...I’m going to have it removed once I get pulled over for it)
Took advantage of the weather & painted the calipers two days later.
…so much wheel gap
Smoked side markers…grill stayed like this for only 24 hours.
Filled the holes on the shield & painted it black
snapped my smiley in half trying to remove it
De-badged & LED plate bulbs
Votex lip, subtle spoiler & back to OEM side markers
Bought these beautiful things…
…Mike aka Minor_Threat installed them & I took some pictures the next day
Twisted the fronts down 5 threads & the rears settled a little. My friend Anthony snapped some shots a few days later (which came out great)
Bought some plasti dip
So it's been a month and this is how she'll sit for winter. GLI side skirts should
be on by next week and I've been searching for a set of wheels to refinish for
spring but haven't had any luck
Welp sorry for wasting your time

crazy what a difference the plastidip makes. Most vortexers disagree, but I love black wheels! lookin good How much thread do you have left? I'm sitting maybe a TAD bit lower, & i've got 14 threads left up front & 8 in the rear on my ksports. I was debating between these 2 coils for a while.
you gotta lower that thing.
Picked up a set of wheels today that I'm not crazy about but I couldn't
decline the offer. I'm going to clean them up, although they're in great
condition, and determine whether they'll stay or not.
Parked behind my boss's R8 today, snapped a picture during lunch break
& four hours later it was stolen
the LEDs using the origional housing...takes a few minutes.
us awesome hipsters all have timelines
vette wheels eh? kinda curious to see what they'll look like on your car

That sucks your bosses car got stolen, kinda weird at the same time
