      Working late into the night hours to get this done before I move back to the bay area for school!
      It's body filler time! I dove into the deep end using bondo filler. Something has changed with it, it's not as low quality as it used to be. I DID have evercoat on hand in case I decided I didn't like the feel of the bondo, but I will be returning the evercoat and using the bondo. I understand that the evercoat is still ahead of bondo in the body work game, but due to my minimal requirements of body filler usage, it shouldn't be a problem.

      I have half day at work tomorrow, so I should be able to come back and finish everything tomorrow, and it will be off for paint, and then I can remove the B&G's, put GLI suspension on, sell B&G's, buy a friends KW V3's, and so on.
      Pictures. Notice the dark atmosphere!

      Here are some more random pictures. Some not completely related, but w/e.
      I managed to blow up our portable compressor, so my dad and I decided to build a frame in the corner of the garage to hold a stationary compressor we pulled out of a family friend's house. Here are the pictures of that:






      Stretched 225 45 17 michelin pilot sports over a friends wheels, and had to take a picture because i thought it looked that good



      Bought a new toolbox for school!


      But I almost bought this one:


      And I DID buy these I just don't have any other picture of them other than me polishing them.


      Should be easy to fill my toolbox with tools, especially after putting new tires on the local snap-on truck!

      Just the lip, and it was a temporary solution. Obviously I'm continuing the process.

      No pics of bumper, cause it would look the same as it did in the past pictures. The only thing I did to it today was lay some more body filler down where it needed to be put down.

      The major shizz today was polishing the inside and outside of the new-to-me helix hid reps. they're SUPER clear now. I had some issues with being frustrated with the outside, when I finally realized that the fog was on the inside, I was like

      But when I pulled the lens off, and cleaned the inside with some plastic polish, and the outside as well (already having been polished thorougly) I was like
      Pictures to follow soon. Currently enjoying Ritz crackers with grape jelly.

      Eh, something like this...
      Still got some work to do. Pro-tip from a bodywork guy is to lay down some primer, it will help show where you need to touch up. And so it did.

      Haha thanks for taking a pic of my car. Can't wait to start working on it monday. Fix the ecs centering plate on the drivers side, give it a nice bath, and lower the rear. Your car looks nice with the OEM HIDs btw. I like them a lot. Hope someone buys my retros or trades for OEM HIDs

      Hung out with Zach and Ian all day, painting the RSII's and other nonsense. I changed the air filter on my car and hid the headlight harness and ballast wiring. Cleaned the whole engine bay a mite, and that's all I've got for now!
      Putting in a fresh dogbone mount tomorrow. And then I move in to school! Which is conveniently about 2 minutes away from Zach's shop.

      That bumper is going to look great, I always thought the center vents looked a little off since it doesn't line up with the center vent of the bumper

      Maintenance is paramount. Worked at Zach's shop again, while he put his wheels together, I put a newly refreshed dogbone mount with new bushings from UroTuning, thanks to William Reilly!

      I polished them. Took some work, and I even had to remove them to remove the fog from the inside of them.
