      dude... there's nothing here deserving of its own thread, and you're obviously oblivious to sarcasm.

      we have a post that everyone shares to post pictures of your car(s) and builds which i already placed a link in this thread to. please use that going forward.

      post build threads in the car's respective forum.


      edit... dude, seriously?

      Well, put in the lowering springs as well as rack and pinion, 2 vertical bushing's struts and shocks.

      Painted parts were not ready yet.





      Was quite happy to see that when I went to replace the rack and pinion its a brand new sub frame and lower control arms (driver and passenger)





      Finished Product (Just camera phone)

      Here's Some Updates, Been A While.

      Got the parts back from paint. Not to happy with the way it turned out but for $100.00 didn't really lose much.

      Picked Theses Up A Week Ago.

      All 4 Wolfsburg BBS Rims

      Drove To Windsor For Them (Was Already In The Area For Work)

      $180.00

      Middle Already Out, Lip Of Rim Already Sanded Down All Bolts There.

      Going Out To Get Powder Coated Sometime.

      Decided The Face Would Be White. Not Sure Of The Lip.

      Girlfriend Says Red Lip, Hit And Miss. Calipers Are Red. She Drew This Up Thou.

      Also Picked Up A Nice Set Of Tires On The Weekend, 4 Yokohama's ES100

      Picked up 2 things the other day. Nothing fancy.

      Bought the euro light switch. I had originally bought fog lights for my Jetta. Ended up being for the Golf So keeping my eyes peeled for Jetta fog's

      Also bought the shark antenna (I Believe Its Called That) just for looks. Plus it was $5.00 how could I go wrong?

      Friends Decided To Paint My Calipers, Which I Was Ok With Except They Didn't Take The Calipers Off!

      Also Picked Up 2 Beetle Headrest, Just Need To Find 3 More!





      Old Headrest And New One






      Camping!

      iirc yellow is for body shops meaning the car is going either between body shops or from body shop to say paint booth nearby. dealer is white plate with red writing.

      Not just for body shops. They are service plates, repair plates.

      Taking vehicles for emissions test, safeties, making sure vehicle works properly. Everything works at operating temperature etc, list can go on.

      Long time no post.

      Have been so busy haven't had time to do anything fun.

      Finally finished my BBS RXII. Bought them already separated. Sent both parts in to get powder coated white.

      After searching for the correct bit for the bolts and tap (Painted inside the holes) I was finally able to finish them......

      If I saw that car in a junkyard I would have taken a dump on it to make it look better. Major props to you for finding the needle in the haystack.
