      Finally got out of work on time, cleaned up and figured I'd take the beast for a cruise since the girls are at a softball game. My girl has the key in her purse so plans have been squashed

      haha all good replies.

      Ass print came with the seat when I bought it.

      Wide mirror is just not an option but I will say this, there was a specific reason for it, with the Zender wing mounted, when the factory one rises, you cant see **** out the back!

      It's the Nardi steering wheel, I don't think the original came with the ABT horn badge however, When Nardi "made" this wheel for ABT all they did was slap on an ABT horn badge which I can easily do and probably will. But you guys need to keep that a secret

      Still super rare and I hounded the owner to ship it to me. This is a direct quote from him in an email: "You sure you want it? Shipping is going to cost more than the wheel"

      Me: "yes!!!! I need this wheel or I will die."

      I exploded the view of the mag scan and the nardi symbol is very distinct on the wheel, so I was right, it's the OG wheel

      Go big or go home. OEM big brake that is.


      Remaned calipers are in for my brake upgrade. Now they will be off to powder coat.
      At some point I'll buy the rest from ECS.

      For now I'm just hoarding the **** out of parts lol Going to staggered this weekend and I might just call it a wrap for the year unless I finish everything I have plans for.

      Replacing entire suspension, wheels, entire brake system including lines, steering etc etc

      Once everything is done, I will either scour the earth for the Abt crankshaft or give in and buy the mk4 r32 crank. Does anyone know if the mkv crank is the same? Seems easier to source

      Well just got back from staggered and I think I've got my fix for months to come. Time for the car to go under the knife. Too many parts piling up at home. Be on the lookout for a 3.1l vr6 next year. MAYBE ready for brokedown. As it stands, 11:1 CR N/A screamer and a head spacer laying around Just in case I change my mind

      I'll keep you guys posted on progress
