      It's a bit late, but since this car will never be completed, I figured I will make a build thread to compile all that progress into one thread.



      Little history; Bought the car used, with 59 miles on her. Yes, 59 miles is correct, I was searching for the perfect 20th AE but came across this '05 TR GTI and couldn't pass up the deal. It has been a long road from the starting point up until now, but I wouldn't trade it anything.

      Ya is does fit goofy, nothing I can do about it except maybe adding some washers to the bolts where is mounts to the bumper support.

      Yes, I was visiting a buddy of mine. I think I remember passing you, but it was dark out. Those roads are terrible.

      Some progress on the awp valve cover. Sanded with 80 grit and 220 grit. A long way to go before full polish, but its a start.

      Yes, I think so myself. I went with a bit more poke in both the front and rear with 30mm adapters in the front and 35mm adapters in the rear. Will get some updated shots at Staggered this weekend. Hope to meet some of you there

      Waiting for a frame notch and then is can install these


      And I need to still buy the tranny side mount and polish it aswell
