      Why not I have 2 sets of caps ....--More just for fun, The badge that fits for the rs caps is the same vw emblem thats used for 1.8t engine covers. Cost 18$ each But only in the blue and white.

      If they were Black and Chrome they might work but blue doesn't do it for me!


      Tires arrived at mailbox today so hopefully more updates very soon



      LBs sanded ready for Primer

      Had the car at Pg yesterday for the whole day and let Jeff work his magic:

      =Raxles are in
      -New R32 Strut mounts- Density line
      -Audi TT Control Arm bushings-all around
      -New Tie rods/ assembly
      -Evolution Skid plate
      -Cleaned and set the ride height
      -New Fender liners

      with winters still on


      Time to get rid of these wheels and put the true ones on

      Tonight I have Peter giving me a hand installing:

      -Intake Manifold/New South Performance Power gasket
      -Valve cover/ gasket
      -Cam tensioner gasket
      -Spark Plugs-Iridium BKR7EIX
      -Throttle Body gasket

      So got a bit of work done over the weekend--Stressful Friday and Saturday. Im not a 1.8t guy at all so this is all new to me. I had a Friend Peter Szigeti (Peter3L) Help me with the install. He is a mechanic at Blitzkrieg Autowerks here in Vancouver.

      This is his car some of you might know Peter Personally



      More of His build and Pics of his car=http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4329309


      What we got up to--Friday night after work swapped the valve cover



      The old one on the inside when we took her off---shows how clean she really is







      Skid plate had to come off to move the crank to right position to be able to loosen the chain to get at the cam tension gasket.



      THe old half moon



      Some beers and time for new gasket, was a bit of a bitch to get in but lucky he had the proper tools and I learned a few things.



      Valve cover in:


      One of these things is not like the other: Can you spot it???

      The late one on the left has two prongs where as the early one has 1. I had spent hours polishing and painting so we improvised and drilled and tapped and 1/4 inch fitting into the New intake. Thanks Reid Hill for the Fitting/ drill , without that we would have been waiting till monday day to have this done!



      New South Performance Power Gasket is in and for anyone curious you can use stock hardware and it goes in fine.



      Taped up for non scratch Install



      All Said and Done= Yes the Caps and coolant bottle need to be changed. For not it must be Cleaned and degreased to bring it back to life!




      Thanks again to Peter for the Help of the install and Reid you saved the day by having your drill and random useful fitting/ tap set

      Your telling me, Id have them on if it didn't snow today, having winter tires is the LAW!

      Hopefully in the next few weeks Ill have them on. But for now concentrating on getting the bay clean and my Longbeaches painted. Choosing a nice color is tough

      Thanks, Yeh I see there isnt alot of traffic in this section, Im so used to the corrado forum!


      So The paint color that was used for the wheels is Bmw Atlantis Blue--such a hard color to capture with ****ty lighting---in my pics it looks nothing like in person









      I also added in some additional reflectiveness/ glass beeds. So at night its reflects light like road signs. This was more of a test to see if it would work, but it looks neat in person. Definatly different, I took these pics with the flash so you can see the reflectiveness. It doesn't show up until extreme light is on it.




      Drying ahahah



      After been drying for few days it was needing some wax on the clear coat---protect it from brake dust






      More pics to come on the wheels, I hope to have the tires mounted and them on the car Today Flyday!
