Hey, thanks. I just got my 3 bar badgeless grill and headlight spoiler in the mail today, so i got something to do this weekend. the r/c is made by tamiya, its the V5 golf kit, 1/10 scale, but you have to find it on ebay now, they don't sell 'em anymore.
Don't worry, that's on the top of my list...
Just got my euro bulb trays and fogs in the mail, working on cutting the hole for the fogs and getting the stock plugs from the dealer, and wiring all that up now. New pics to come shortly. You comin out on Tues, Brian?
Just washed the cars, got my fogs installed this weekend, still gotta hook em up, though. Got the wire ran from the dash, just waiting on the factory plugs so they'll look clean and stock. Picked them up on ebay for $35 shipped. I was buying them for the brackets, and when I got the package and opened it up, imagine how surprised I was when they were Hella fogs! And to think I paid $120 for the Vivid Wonders fogs. I think I'll be selling those on ebay... Unless someone wants them, they are the crystal clear ones. Best offer...
Still gotta get the smoked turns and sides.
16v baby! Painted the emblem black, it was fading bad.
just an update, i rebuilt the suspension on the jetta the other week, new bushings front and rear, sits alot better now. also, just bought a yakima roof rack for the jetta, hopefully i get it this week and get to put it on this weekend.
felt like post whoring tonight, as you can prolly tell. i'm bored as hell here at work. see ya'll soon at the drive!
love the cars dude! calypso green, IMO, is the best color for the Mk2...even compared to T-Red
