Nice ride Randy!  When do we get to meet you and the sled?

I just painted my votex spoiler, but it was not an exact match, so I am going to have it professionaly done later when I actually have the cashish.  I bought it from a guy in the springs with a Blue Anthracite B5, so I had to do something with the color for now.

Also, I almost got the same wheels as you, but ended up with mine, which are pretty similar.

Danke!

I plan to be at the GTG on the 18th & 19th with my dollar bills for the titty-bar. :wink:  I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the group and have a couple of cold one's.

So I “frosted” my tail lights this past weekend.  I do not have any pictures of them yet, but as soon as I do I will post them.

FYI – I decided not to tint them, as I wanted the color to match the car.  So I used the tinting process Dub uses, but with primer and clear coat.  It does not match perfectly, but I will let it go for a while to decide if I really like it.  If I do I will re-do it in the spring for a perfect match.

Now Winston, you are a smart guy, but you could use a little work on your reading skills. :?

I hope to have some by Friday

Look here Man! Some of us are not quite so lucky as to have a digital camera at our disposal, so I have to wait for my friend Michael and use his. :twisted:

Now that I think about it - I am going to add it to my Christmas list :idea:

So just keep your pants on :!:

Post by: kraut-sled on December 11, 2006, 09:29:36 PM
Yeah, mmmm, so.......

I am getting ready to throw a K04 and HUGE front mount intercooler in the car.  I am also going to relocate the Cat down streem.  I think some new wheels are also in order.

But I need the car back from SVE first. :wink:

Sorry for the multipul posts, my computer was in a bad mood lastnight and I was not sure it was being posted.

It was not a bad crash, just bad luck.  Nothing worse then rocks hiding in a snowbank. :twisted:

Thanks for the well wishes.  I guess my pride is hurt more then anything. :(

I know SVE will get the car back loking it's best, then I can get to work in the turbo and intercooler.  Now if I can just convert to Quattro it will be all good.

In honor of the sites B-Day I updated my very first post ever......

In addition to with I have done on my car I would also like to note of few things, I now own/poses the following:

1. Ian's original hood - it is hanging on the wall in the shop (as well as a mess of other stuff he never picked up)
2. Jon's W8 Headlights, via Mike's Passat which I sadly parted out in the fall.
3. Mike's seats from the part out.
4. Charles whole car! Resurrected just last week from a broken timing belt (soon to be for sale I hope)
5. 1 Blow up K04 from Andrew's Allroad, soon to be turned into a lamp

I am sure there is more....

- Randy

Wow, sounds like a VAG graveyard.

If you want a contribution from me, you can have those worthless springs that always fall out from underneath the front seats.
