      48 hours into owning it....dumbass drunk driver.



      didn't do much for a while, then got air and the ronals

      And a couple of the car. Most recent, just sold the brocks though.



      Personal favorite while i was on air with the ronals.



      and a good one with a buddy.




      Got a bunch of stuff back from paint this week.



      Friend of mine build a catless down pipe for me this weekend. Message me if you are looking for one made, he is considering making a few.



      Rogersretros. Fx-r with dual ambers a d iris shrouds.



      Got some interior pieces. Gli trim and black pieces for the headliner swap.



      Waiting one more piece to take another batch of pieces to paint. Cannot wait to get that in the mail this week.

      Small update.

      Repainted some aristos I had picked up for winter.





      Got some more gli trim in over the weekend.





      Pulling the headliner next. And the ever growing parts pile.



      Oh. And I ordered some wheels. Should be finished by Water by The Bridge. I promise not to disappoint. Only hint you get is that they're the first set of it's design. Those of you who know hush.

      Looks good man. Just threw some aluminum trim in my GTI. Makes a pretty big difference for the interior.

      Thanks, it really does make a big difference. With the help of Einkaufswagen hopefully I'll be able to build the cluster I want

      He doesn't help anyone, he just criticizes your work cause he's an angry old man

      not really though

      Looks great, that pile of parts is awesome, minus the mirrors but eh they're not bad. Are you gonna do what he did with the skoda faces and needles in your cluster?

      I'm quite jealous of that parts pile

      And once that reiger lip goes on will the 4-mo need a home?
