      Why is it that you never see something till you have one of your own, after that, they seem to be everywhere!

      Yea well, with the other mods I am doing to this car, it will deff set its own bar of excellence!

      I personally have never seen a RHD VW ANYTHING, even at shows I have gone to..

      I may have to bring some Phone Dials to you one day if you'd be willing to blast them for me.

      Hurry up and do work on the car.

      It is kind of hard for me to get work done most of the time since I am a stay at home father and the wife works odd times of the day. I can only do work when the daughter is sleeping or when wife is home for the day otherwise I can't work on it (which is the majority of the time).

      I am blasting this stuff to powdercoat. I have a powdercoating setup in the basement and the VR valve cover is going in first. I still have a few blemishes to iron out on the rims and then they are next..

      Gotcha. Priorities.

      How much would you charge me if I made the 3 hour trip to Reading to get my Dials blasted and powdercoated?

      The black speck you see is a piece of tape that snuck its way onto the cover before I took the pic. It is not in the finish.

      I didn't have a build thread, only a few people knew I was building it until now but I figured since I'm done I would share. Which is why you didn't know about it

      The first is the color that is going on the WHOLE wheel with purple flake added. Then the bolts are going to be purple as the colored ball.

      Super Wet Black a.k.a "Black Chrome"


      Purple Wave

      You should stop by so I can drive your car so I know if I want to finish the swap or not..

      A little bit of floor surface rust on what used to be the drivers side.

      I cleaned it up a bit with the wire wheel, wiped it down with a cleaner, and sprayed a self etching primer on it.

      Soon I have to tackle this problem. This is behind what used to be the passenger side. This is on the floor in the back. The problem is finding this area in another car that is good. I think it is Cabrio specific

      I ordered the powder needed for my rims today. Black Chrome, Purple Flake, and Purple Wave for the bolts.. The powder will be here Friday and I hope to have at least the barrels done by the weekend!
