And today (sunday) Dennis and i removed my head so i can get it sent out for a rebuild! everything looked good, only bit of corrosion on the head was by that steel plug on the aluminum block but cross hatching was all good and dennis said it looked damn good. Timing chain guides however i got to just in time ( that is suppose to be all one peice)...

well, last night i bolted on my doors, hatch, and hood. except for one of the hinges on my passenger door doesn't line up. so now i have to figure that out. and for some reason, now that the car is all painted, it doesn't want to start (started and drove fine 3 weeks ago when i brought her home) so that's cool...

it's just one thing after the other with this piece. i think he just doesn't want to roll out of his warm garage  :wall:

being 2 inches off the ground made the trip interesting though. Smashed the euro lip and have a huge crack in it, but all good.

Checked the power steering fluid. It's a little low. Next weeks project (since I'm off work for a week): Find where that fluid went. Also time for new spark plugs/wires, and an oil change.

Oh, I also contemplated re-aiming the washer nozzles. They currently spray the car behind me and not the windshield...

got confused after drivin the vr coupe for 15 minutes because blue smoke would shoot out the rear muffler every time i got on it or blipped the throttle.... dunno what it is, but me thinks i got pwned.

hopefully its cuz the car that we got the motor out of wasnt driven for a few years and stuff built up inside. that and i barely drive the car once or twice a week. I mean the motor only has 130K on it, wtf. sigh, or maybe i need to rebuild my head.

Nicky, wanna help in doing a head job on my head  :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :yes:

It's either stem seals or rings.  Have a compression test and leak-down test done.  Stem seals can be done with the head installed, luckily.

I hope you're not planning on running diesel oil for very long.  The detergents are harsh on seals, which is why diesel engines are usually coated in oil.  They need the detergents to clean up and hold the carbon deposits from the carbon-rich blowby (however slight).

well countless people on corrado club of canada use it on their VR6s and i have quite a few friends running it and who used to run it in their VR6s.

first time i hear bad things about it.

even the guys at VM said it was a good idea to run 20w50

i don't think he's talking about the weight of the oil, more tha fact it's diesel oil and has additives

Are you using actual diesel oil or just some regular 20w50w?
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: OrdinaryGirl on Sep 11, 07, 09:38
I use actual 20W50 in my G60, NOT diesel 20W50. The only thing I'd watch out for with REGULAR 20W50 is just to let it warm up a little more especially in the winter before you put your foot into it. I've never had problems with it in my car. I tried 15w40 (not the diesel kind, just regular) once, and decided it's too light of an oil. It was goop within 3000k. The G60 doesn't get quite as hot as the VR does, so I'd give regular 20w50 a shot in your car especially since VRs do seem to get pretty hot. Remember that oil doesn't just lubricate, it also helps to cool stuff down by disapating the heat.  ;)

on the topic of deisel oil, i was told by a Tech at my dealership that the only difference is the amount of detergents in the oil, someone have nemore info on this? (more detergents in the diesel oil that is)

also im re-gapping my plugs and washin the dirty whore.
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: Negative Karma on Sep 11, 07, 13:38
^ Yup, diesel oil has to have more detergents, otherwise it's the same.

Nick, are you sure those people are using diesel oil, or just regular oil like they should be?  The extra detergents in diesel oil are hell on seals, like I mentioned.  I sure hope there's not a bunch of gassers running diesel oil! :no:

Installed fenders and new hood.  then adjusted it. and then again. and again. now the lines are straight.

did the swap back to synthetic oil after the rebuilt valve issue. Changed the plugs, and oil filter. Cleaned the K&N and took some junk out of my swiss cheese'd airbox. Installed the new wheels.

Well that wasnt today, but over the last two weekends.  Oh and I got up to 195km/h on the Kelowna connector.  Followed an Audi that blew by me while i was doin 140.  No traffic and 3 lanes for 3 straight km's.  Also found I have no rev limiter.  Nice and smooth at that speed.

anyways newest pic i gots...no more dents or botched bondo!!!

big offset wheels will screw with your high speed stability, also depends on your alignment.

been in a rabbit up to 220ish...smooth as a baby's bottom.
my jetta is also smooth this side of 200.


either way, i run diesel oil in my shits, shell rotella. never had a problem blowing seals on my diesel car, nor on my gas cars.  :thumbup:

if it were that harsh on seals...they'd prolly make it less harsh on seals...or make better seals.

diesels get covered in crap because of regular oil leaks that happen to contain diesel fuel, and diesel leaks that don't evaporate and attract residue.

Hey rondal, you might want to get a proper fender liner to protect it, or tape on some towels, becuase i have seen what painters tape can do to a paint job if left on for too long (except it was done to a boat that has paint that is more durable than a car).

With the highly restricted 5-cylinder a CAI DOES make noticeable gains, dyno results of the Tex last winter showed up to 12hp and 20 lbs/ft of torque. Since I never dynoed mine I can't attest to these results but I can say there were noticeable gains, plus as others said it sounds a lot better fer sure.

I'm still partial to the webber its nice to have even acceleration through the whole band, but i think its weird how it only has one flap and isn't a butterfly. they take some getting used to man.

vhat did you get?  I want Picturz.

And I actually really like the TB now.   It just never returns to the same place twice... it needs a real idle bypass instead of just adjusting the closing stop of the plate. 

There is some adjustment where the old idle bypass was, but it doesnt affect idle, hence me trying to find a manual.

put the correct flywheel cover plate on, third one i've tried, found out it's an 02j tranny i have.  Changed to winter wheels, discovered my front passenger side tire has a bulge in the sidewall, due to a 2x4 i hit on the freeway a couple weeks ago.  Along with bald rear tires, springs gonna be pricey.  Gotta clean the rims, wax and polish em, them put em away til then.

Today I gotta talk to ICBC about fixing her. And then she'll be all purdy again!

We fucking rocked worn out motor mounts, a broken hood, a small bumper skin without breaking it (i understand why people just slap big bumpers on there, seriously HOLY GOD it was hard), fixed some bent headlight brackets, re-aligned the bumper and the front crossmember, pulled all the power steering lines, and ripped out the broken rad. Not in that order, of course.

I feel like a lot was accomplished today, but I know there's still a long way to go. We're not even at the body work stage yet. But we're getting somewhere anyhow!

Also I learned that not every mig welder is the same, and a shitty old mig that never gets any maintenance sucks ballz. I think I'm gonna shave my banana markers at work. Either that or get a group buy going on euro fenders from concept 1.  :wall:

I have a lot of plans but I have to get it all back together first, get it looking decent, and then I can start ripping it apart all over again. Its gotta go through ICBC one last time when I'm done to make sure I put it back together correctly.

I honestly don't mind body work - as long as I'm not the one doing the paint. I like welding too, but when I'm at work someone just hands me the mig and says "here, weld this." and the mig is all set up for whatever I'm doing. The one we use at the shop is ancient, and like I said, it doesn't work very well...

(Yesterday)

Changed blown wheel bearing... >:(

Drove the car 600+ Km on Saturday to/from Mt. Washington here on the Island, got in my car yesterday morning to go for breakfast made it two minutes into my drive and the rear wheel bearing packed it in. Were talking smoke, wobbly car, and at least half an inch of play in the wheel...Failed bearing? Who knows, I did them myself last time and I know they were packed well and def weren't over tightend or under tightened for that matter.  :wall:

Ripped the drum off and the bearing had gotten so hot that the inner inner race had fused itself to the spindle...Pullers wouldn't work getting it off even after getting the thing red hot. Ended up cutting it off with a grinder. Needless to say I was happy with a $50 dollar tow home and a $10 bearing rather than having to fork out several hundred dollars getting the car to a shop up-island and having to pay them to replace the bearing.

On that note, waste deep powder on Saturday more than made up for having to spend my Sunday in the cold getting durty...

this is a good idea, but i find that using nail polish remover is simple, and less abrasive but just takes a bit longer.

ripped apart my OEM headlights and am doing my own custom joey mod, also fixing up my new fender markers as well, my damn house smells like paint, hahaha.

hopefully gonna drop by Tire Trends tomorrow and get some thinner rubbers installed on ma new wheelszors

why would you guys wants these though??

in 55 height, wouldnt these pretty much be similar to a 195/45??? since they are so much taller, wouldnt the stretch be just as minimal... i dunno, just thinkin outloud here

i got them because the 195/50R15's (that came with the wheels) rubbed on my car. that and the cups are 7" wide so a 195 wouldnt give any stretch.

Nope, there is a 20mm difference in width between the two so the difference in stretch will be quite apparent. And because of the amount of stretch, the overall tire height will decrease a little bit making it closer to a 50 series tire.

i'm curios to see how a 175 looks on a 8" wheel, but probably not for my application. either way i like to keep a lookout for oddball tire sizes just in case  :thumbup:

and fwiw the 175 will be about .6" taller in diameter than a 195/45. but with stretching probably end up being about .4" taller.

i want 185/45 or 195/40 though    :wall:

i doubt it would be easy to do though, even though im sure Marcin is an amazing mechanic, i dont know if he has the know how to swap out the parts that are not workin.

You have a bentley, right? Then you can probably do it.

That being said, I've always had help myself. But if a bunch of retarded kids in a first year automotive class can rebuild a transmission for a turbo eagle talon, you can put  new second gear in your jetta.

Just a suggestion. You don't have to do it, nor do you have to feel bad about not doing it. It's out of the realm of a lot of ppl, including the shop foreman that I worked with at VW. He'd never pulled apart any transmission, and he's been there for 17 years. Doesn't make him any less of a mechanic, it just kind of surprised me.

nope.


you can rebuild a toyota transmission with nothing but a gear puller and some sockets.

VW trannys, from what i've been told, as well as my shortlived "i'm gonna rebuild a transmission" phase, you need a bunch of specialized tools.

ok so i did my mk3 weighted rod i noticed the part that the rod connects to that comes off the tranny has 3 holes.. is that a normal peice or is that a short shift? if so which way would be shortest?

Post by: ea187 on Jan 17, 08, 22:18
i believe the farthest hole is the shortest
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: SR-71 on Jan 17, 08, 22:36
kyle, that would be a short shift. and you can just switch the rod into each one of the holes and try to shift. that'll tell you which one's the shortest.
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: kyle on Jan 18, 08, 00:29
sweet.. i keep finding more little goodies on this car that i didnt know it had:D i went down and played around a bit with it and looks like the hole closest to the firewall is stock and the middle is a little shorter, but when i went for the one closest to the tranny the rod would move that far unless you use some force. when you go to shift it seemed short but was really hard to shift and hard to get into gears. im using the middle hole right now and its really nice to shift with and after driving for awhile i can start to kinda feel the difference in how short it is. im going to have to see if i can bend the rod a bit to i can out it in the 3rd hole without forcing it and see how that works.

Post by: dutchOven on Jan 18, 08, 01:20
^^ The farthest one, the one you have problems shifting with, should be a 50% throw. I had the same troubles with one of my cars and found that if I turned the weighted shift rod upside down, the shifting was no longer difficult.  :rockin:

There are no holes in the eyebrown, but there are dimples that show you where to place the screws, I predrilled mine, but I'm not sure if that is needed.  But I am partial to just using super plastic glue, and glueing it on, because a few clips on my grille broke, and it sort of pulled away from my rad support, and exposed some of my black screws....it didnt look too nice on alpine white  :wall:

Idle valves are the devil's tools

so i shelled out 90 bucks for a used valve and all seams well I adjusted my timing and fuel mixture as best i could
 ( if any one would care to come over and have some beers ill supply the beer you bring your timing light and  meter for checking fuel mixture )

took my door apart some criminal decided that he wanted into my car and made a lovely hole above my driver door handle , he could have at least done this to the passenger side so i didn't have to look at it every time i get into my car "fuckers"

also fixed my automatic locks so i can lock my car again (no key holes)
fixed the rear lock since when my auto lock went i had to break into my car

Looks awesome man. You planning on running Digi 1?

It took me 3 years to decide to stick to Digi 2.

I'll switch to Digi 1 when there's a need.  (ITB's, custom manifold, boost, etc)
Right now the engine is so close to stock that for the hassle of a custom EEPROM I'd rather not.

I want to see what the limits of Digi 2 are anyway.  This car should be hunting down into the 14's if it makes the power (and the traction) I'm hoping for this summer.

Installed Neuspeed upper front strut bar. I have to say from all the posts I read about the lack of effect this would have on my car they were mistaken. Bounce is gone, shimmy at higher speeds is gone, handels much better, less body roll, tighter feel to the car over all and it also brakes better and I can surely deal with the bit of understear that was the result. Thinking a rear sway bar might correct this but not sure if it's worth the $ or time...

Went out to see why my alternator light was on my drive home last night, only to find I had no belt.

So I drove like 8 blocks or so with no water pump.  Didnt overheat thankfully it was a quick trip to the store and I didnt really let it warm up too much.   Only time I'm happy I did that.

Walked down to whoredco and got a belt apparently no rabbit in 1984 didnt have AC..  :stupid:   had to make them look it up for a Rocco.   I want a self serve auto parts place.

You need to deal in Part#'s at Lordco or you're fucked.

I called and asked for a breather filter with a specific inside diameter and length and was told there was no such thing.....
I called back with a part number and magically one existed, and was in stock  :rolleyes:.
Part#'s or no Lordco for me. Not even for paint anymore! My color code decal was taken off my car and according to Lorco my car didn't exist either, then he refused to let me use the phonebook to look up Speedway's phone number because "They wouldn't know either"..... :wall:

Its essentially that, you can bolt it on, try it and see if you like it. If not, just unbolt it and go back to stock. Takes me 20min to make one, or less even now.

i think it depends on who you talk to at Lordco.
I deal with the 2nd ave store in Van and rarely have problems but i know most of the guys and only deal with a select few for ordering parts if i don't have PT#

most of what you need can be found at Altrom.com.
get the PT#s and order your parts from Lordco with a "City of Vancouver" discount which is like 30% off the shitty list price they quote. or just claim you work at a shop that doesn't have an account yet.

adjust both your fronts the same and both your rears the same.  The chance that your on a completely even surface is pretty small.  Once you drive on them, they'll be even.

then got extremely pissed off when the thing wouldn't start...tired jump starting it cause the battery is only ready 9.7 volts....snooped around to figure out why (sanded down battery terminals etc) then found the PO had cut, put ring terminals held together by a BOLT in the starter power wire  :wall: :wall: :wall: when i pulled the tape off one of the wire came out of the ring terminal

why the hell someone would do that is beyond me

so that's the first thing getting fixed tomorrow, i gave up tonight

ok so i raised the coils in the rear and dropped them in the front. im having problems with the rears.. for some reason they are sooo hard to turn and tend to lock up on me.. ive tried using brake cleaner and just general car oil to lube them up. so far ive only had luck with the brake cleaner. ive also broken a few teeth where the coil key grabs onto to turn the coils up and down.. is there any way to get new ones (they would be for kw v1's).

I drove my car home! Then parked in her underground parking spot for about a month. It needs to be warmer before I start painting. And I also need to get that AWIC ordered...


Then I drove the winter beater upisland. Put some gas in it, checked the tires, scraped the mud off the windshield and went on my merry way. Good times! Cept it still needs some tunes. :(

Smashed my thumb with a deadblow hammer, cut some fingers on some fenders, and ran over my own hand with the creeper. Good times were had by all.


At the end of it all though, the Jetta sits about 2 inches lower, so I'd say it was at least a partial success. We're just gonna have to watch that the springs make it into their homes proper-like every time we lower the car down on the hoist from now on. And it needs some new wheels. And a good cleaning. I think it's been washed once in the year that we've had it. :)

I was surprised to see a 92 GTX in there.  Complete minus the head.

Vince (vinister)  and I relayed my headlights so that I didn't inevitably smell that burning smell.   Big thanks to him.  All of a sudden I have lights its so much more adequate lighting for the tin box.

Now on the lookout for a set of big square H4 lenses to replace my fishbowl.

The whole car????

Jesus.  That was quick.  I wonder if someone took the whole thing?

Yeah double checked with the chick at the counter today after an extensive search of the lot.  They only have 1.8L's in their registry, are you SURE you saw a GTX at pick-a-part?  She said they never sell cars out unless they're already stripped.  They recieved a black 92 jetta 1.8L on the 8th, and that was her most recent....

I really needed the wiring out of that car, the seats would have just been gravy.

I really needed the wiring out of that car, the seats would have just been gravy.



I know it was a GTX I was all happy when I was under it and I saw a dual outlet manifold, only to get to the top, to see the mounting for the manifold was a 16V, then I started to look around the car,  I mean it really didnt look like it belonged in there,  it would have been impossible to miss, it was higher than just about any other car, and was BRIGHT ( by that I mean it was clean, and possibly repainted at one point in time ) Tornado red. 

Some peices of trim were missing I may have assumed it was GTX, because it had a 2.0, but nothing looked swapped, it was all still oem connectors,  I didnt see any new soldered joints, connectors or such.    I even know where it was, when you enter the yard, your lined up to a row, go 1 row left and half way down,  the car itself is pointing towards abbotsford.

Lol, I knew I should have taken my camera down to the yard, I was going to start a post about pick-ur-nuts cars.   Are you sure that 92 was a 1.8L 8v?  Becaue it was a 92,  Maybe ask for a bright red Jetta.   Lets face it they really have no idea what they have, I've asked if they had any B2200's the answer I got was nope, there were SIX in the yard.   I asked when I last went in there, have any rabbits?  nope.  You can clearly see a rabbit from where they have their asses parked.   

Anyway didnt mean to get anyones hopes up.

MK3 Golf on a 40/40 kit. Honestly I only cut off approx 1/2 an inch and the difference is amazing.

Seriously, I'd love to have a mk1 - as long as it ran as well as my mk2 does. But since that's not possible, Rick's mk1 will be as close as I'll get until I have a much bigger bank account and a garage to work on it in at home.

And thanks for coming out, but the G60 has never been rebuilt since I've owned it and I only took the front end off cuz I'm a woman and can't drive. I left the kitchen for five minutes and got in an accident. :(

We own 2 freak mk2s if that's what you call a freak. Few to no electrical issues, no leaky anything, no saggy anything, no super rusted fail-all-the-time bolts. The only other VW I've driven that's proven more reliable was actually a 95 Golf CL. That thing was indestructable - and is still driving!!!!!!!!

I also used some spray adhesives today!  :D

Step 1: Find a donor headliner and sunrood panel (incase you screw up ;) ):
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg239.imageshack.us%2Fimg239%2F4617%2Fp2230028md4.jpg&hash=ada8663bea014976acb0f6013b6a8243)

Step 2: Go shopping.
Part 1, Canadin tire:
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg213.imageshack.us%2Fimg213%2F2544%2Fp2240031ds9.jpg&hash=19984a2f2ce9bdd4fb890d2727d1cf18)

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg177.imageshack.us%2Fimg177%2F43%2Fp2240030uu9.jpg&hash=720f12f649119521b423904148a09d9e)

Part 2, Go to Fabricland and act like you know what you're talking about. Talk to and flirt with the semi-cute employee that is your age to get a discount on some of their expensive fabric  ;)
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg143.imageshack.us%2Fimg143%2F9402%2Fp2240028bp9.jpg&hash=102c24f097c1547177e043c899d620c3)

Step 3: Get the pieces naked!:
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg257.imageshack.us%2Fimg257%2F8508%2Fp2240036kj3.jpg&hash=dbdccf94dc1849ffec290061ab7ac729)

Step 4: Use your Goo-Gone to clean off the old glue:
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg213.imageshack.us%2Fimg213%2F153%2Fp2240033jf3.jpg&hash=9de1a0f02dfcbbe7c55fcfbcb9200608)

Step 5: Lay out your fabric and cut out pieces to size:
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg252.imageshack.us%2Fimg252%2F9583%2Fp2240037pd2.jpg&hash=a482cfd8125135b9436718442db61741)

Step 6: Spray the adhesive on both the back of your fabric and the surface that is going to get covered, and let sit for ~30seconds. Then carefully lay your fabric ontop and smooth it out across the surface. Work from the center and make sure you press hard to get the fabric in the creases.
(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg252.imageshack.us%2Fimg252%2F8471%2Fp2240039em6.jpg&hash=724f8581c75050193943a18c930bb6b6)

went to double check my left front wheel bearing only to find out that the strut bolts are about to fall out,  so that solved one problem.

I thought I had a seized caliper too, then I found only one caliper bolt holding the caliper on and it was quite twisted, after taking off and re seating said caliper it doesn't drag anymore,  waiting for a caliper rebuild kit.

In the mean time since I obviously cant trust anything to be tight anymore I went through and double checked every god damn nut on the car  :wall:.   At least it was a beautiful day.

So far I've found a broken lug nut, loose suspension, missing brake parts, always check a car out when you buy it.  I doubt it was intentional but all the same, I've had my family in the car which makes me grateful nothing snapped or fell out on the highway.

Did you do that to reduce drag? It looks a lot lighter than the last time I saw it.
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: ShineGuy on Feb 28, 08, 09:32
I think that is a factory option, the drag / weight reduction option is activated by underdash wiring when the car hits 175k.

yours looks lighter too... but that might because your missing part of your trunk... and particulate flys off your car at high speeds.

All very true. However, today I added a new stereo to replace some of my lost weight.

As a side note; Kenwoods blow. I will never spend another dime on anything that says Kenwood on it. If you own a Kenwood, I will judge you.

no.  it's been a process.  the PO painted them white.  So i've stripped the paint chemicaly, little filing to get rid of some minor rash, ultra fine steel wool to smooth them out, and some polish by hand.

I got the motor from an audi (thanks Kalev (Estonian))

I was using the switch from the audi in the sunroof panel for a while then I got this idea and I like it  :thumbup:
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: kyle on Mar 04, 08, 17:09
i agree thats a good place to put it! how was doing the audi power sunroof. is it hard.. any kida fabbing of any sort or is it basically bolt on and wire up?
Title: Re: What did you do to your dub today?
Post by: boomfunk on Mar 04, 08, 19:14
You have to cut off a few chunks of sheet metal from your roof with an angle grinder, after that it bolts right up and you can even wire it up to your dome light.

im going to raise the front a tad but the back gotta go down like crazy.. i didnt have time to do it before i had to go out so the fronts got done.

8.5" wide with an ET30 means they're flush up front, and flush in the rear with a 5mm spacer. I could drop the coils a little further, but I already have trouble getting out of my garage with the 337/20AE front lip. (Watching Dean try to leave my parking garage is good for comic relief.)

Friday night I raced her at Mission. I ran a 16.2  and the GF ran a 16.6, not bad for both of our first time ever on the track.

Saturday, I washed her.
Sunday I cursed at the rain for ruining my clean car, and then I bought and installed a set of OEM roof racks.

I never get to do anything on my car. Anyways last week we started on my my best friends' car.
This is what we did:
- a 5 speed swap with a donor motor (thanks to Clint),
- remover the automatic garbage and install pedals and shifter box
- full interior re-do, carpet and all plastic trim parts
- remove some shitty alarm wiring, redo the wiring and install 5 speed harness
- and install a rear disk swap. 

We started last weekend (5th) and the car is almost ready.  Thought I would share what I have been up to.

Wheelbearings on all 4, ball joints, one control arm (PO fucked it up), new brakelines, front calipers, rear rotors.
Install Ksport coilovers.
Rust repair and repaint for windsheild and door panels.
Purchase new wheels and rubber.

Ive been saving for this day.  Now i just gotta get it done.  Summer time is gonna be looooow riiidin...

Then your engine has issues.  I had to run a stock one when I was living in Calgary (my first lightened one failed on my way there), and I couldn't stand it.  Made a new lightened one (won't fail) as soon as I got back, and all was well again.

I generally leave the sunroof in the vent position when I park (unless if I know it's going to rain), and on occasion I've left a window open a crack.

No matter how hard you try to drain the coolant from the engine, when you tip the head more will spill out into the cylinders.  Just soak it up before it corrodes the cylinders.

Then I was thinking about jettag60's wicked paint job on his flares and trim, so i was like, mee too.

and then it turned out pretty good. I was like whoa. clean car.  so i decided to add some Meguire's.

while buffing it out in the shade with a margarita in hand, UPS air bombs me a package exactly at the minute they said it would be delivered with this:

mmm eyelid spoiler...

so i fit it on with some adheisive and 4 screws.  Im gonna take out the screws afterwards once the epoxy is bonded.

Then I was beat after a day of 28'C Pemberton heat, so I finally finished and went for a rip up the valley and took this pic on the way back.  Man I love Pemberton.  Burgers and fresh corn are on the barbq as we speak...

Yup, that's the only adjustment.  Your side/side is done by jumping splines on the main rod, and your front/back is adjusted along the splines.  I've always had trouble getting it right, there's no simple tool like for the MK2/3. :(

biked to the store to get epoxy and caliper paint.  my modified chopper bike (kids bike with long forks and highway bars) snapped at the headtube as i roll the speedbump in front of my house.  eat shit and tear up my elbows as i scorpion face first into the pavement...all at 9am.  right on top of the skate bowl rash i inflicted mid speedline on the Landyacht three days previous.

then my front calipers came in at the greyhound care of LBR Tuning. nice. $92 for the pair. painted them yellow.

now i am going to go for a rip down to whistler for a bbq, then back to the pemberton hotel for some burrs.

managed to epoxy the eyelid to the top of the grill. hope it holds. pics to come.

I really dont know.  I was looking at these calipers sitting in the box and they looked boring.

I happened to have some yellow caliper paint in the garage and figured all the cool people had red ones so I went with yellow. :stupid:

I recently acquired a B6 Passat LED tail lamp with a cracked outer cover, so I decided to use the outer LED ring to beef up the crappy stock trunk lighting. Painted the grilles black (smoked e-codes to be ordered), and dyed the visors black, then gave her a minor detail.

Hahah So I got bored waiting for stuff to dry on the corrado, so I played with the rabbit. I was tired of it's multicolor "style" so I went out and found the cheapest paint I could, spent a whole 15mins on prep and made my car one color (the hood sucks and we didn't do the roof yet). It's in no way, shape, or form any kind of good work but it was just for fun.  :thumbup: Oh yeah. It cost me $21.00  :rofl:

It's best view:

Put it on a DynaPack Dyno

285ft/lbs and 150HP at the wheels on shitty co-op diesel.

When I let my stock turbo spike to 30psi I hit 322ft/lbs and 180HP but I don't feel those are realistic since the stock turbo would grenade itself if I let it run at 30psi :p

Sold my mk3 CL and bought a MINT mk4 4 door golf, bought it from the original owner who bought it from guilford VW back in 2000. no accidents and only 120 000kms. So im STOKED.

just bought K-Sport Coilovers, and am getting Stahlberg Auto to price out some Schmidt THs and some other wheels for me.

Spent a good 4 hours figuring out how this whole "Phatnoise" system works, and mother of god do i love it. I already have 25 CDs and mixtapes loaded into it, and the sound is amazing.

Should be installing the coilovers this coming friday if all goes well. Just need to figure out how to properly adjust the suspension height, because i hear K-Sports are not the easiest to adjust.

I might also start planning out the shaving of the rear hatch and front bumper and hood. hahaha. ahhhh its good to be back in a mk4 golf.

cheers,
Nick

i thought i was the only one with effed electrical behind the dash and center console is a joke in my 87...where do you start???

it turned out PO added his own radio speaker wiring  :stupid: and that was a simple pull of the rats nest... and then i tackled the push button start wiring which needed to be redone with soldering connections and shrink tubing, as it was grounding out when removing dash pieces.... :no: other then that i started to split coil/spiral wrap some of the colum harnesses that cleaned alot, took it all the way to the box if i could... then the wiring that heads from box to the passenger side of the car started that last night...

Laying the wiring for the central locking is pretty much a breeze ... but im all about no cut wires to i have to repin the connectors to the fuse box... except they are different style pins(round) than im my  MKIII (flat)... hopefully i can figure it out but i havnt really got into that part yet...

today its finishing my central locking project and swap in new shifter linkage bushing as it shows no wear but it is rather not there!

Both front wheel bearings and tranny in. Time to start buttoning shit up and get the bitch on the road.

If anyone wants to do front bearings, Can Tire on Shaughnessy rents out the tool for a 230 deposit. You get it all back and pay nothing for rental. No need to pull the knuckle and fuck with alignment!

No problem. I know that some people charge a shitload for that and it's a 2 hour job (tops) with just a basic tool kit that everyone vw owner already has. You may need to invest into an 8mm triple square, 30mm socket and a pair of snap ring pliers but that's peanuts.

Got the car with a big scrape on the right corner of the lower front valence, and fixed it temporarily with a patch spraybomb of Tremclad. Did a full DIY respray of the lip over the last 4 days. Must have been 7-8 coats.

Valence before:

Unfortunately I am doing this in my backyard with no air or vise. Ghetto? yes..... but it works. back when I worked at the shop it took no time to do front bearings. Today was a bitch. Thank god for the bearing press/slide hammer I borrowed from a buddy, and of course Cameron was a huge help too!

started planning the tire stretching/ fender rolling session that the coupe is gonna be getting this friday.

16x8.5 up front is gonna be a close fit. Right now im on 215/40/16 up front and i barely rub, but i want the car to be as low as possible. So ive ordered some 205/40/16 Falken 512s that we will be fitting on the front.

Then the 16x9.5 rears will be getting my 215/40/16s from the front rims.

in the Rear im running 225/40/16 right now, and i run on any bump in the road. And even while accelerating, haha. So hopefully some fender work and the 215s will solve that issue. Im getting pretty stoked!

If rubbing continues after all that work, im gonna fit G60 flares and hack up the fenders...






















JUST kidding, eww G60 flairs on small bumpers  :barf:

Replaced all the seals, gaskets and clutch on the engine for the GTi. Installed my hawt lightened flywheel. Tomorrow's plan is to replace the mounts and tranny seals , and hopefully drop the motor in and install the new header!

Anybody ever install the polyurethane inserts into the side mounts for a MK1? Are the vibrations worth the gain of mount stiffness?

Ordered a set of 5000K HIDs for the foggies, but the bulb, pig tail wiring and connectors weren't all going to fit the foggie housing without some serious dremeling. Not wanting to cut up a set of $200 used lights, I was on the verge of giving up and selling the set. Then I caved and decided to do some minimal cutting to try and make them fit, while trying to make it as reversible as I can. Let me show you it:

The cap that I would have had to cut and destroy, Part 2:

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2F18-1.jpg&hash=bd9428daf1db7b32c270fd60a12d8e39)

Then, found grandma's Save On Foods vitamin bottle cap  :suspicious::

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FCopyofDSC00369.jpg&hash=548d03175cd9361c05f8c509fc97fc39)

Then, trimmed cap with large enough hole to pass through the wiring (had to be made that big to fit through the bulky Delphi connectors)

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FCopyofDSC00370.jpg&hash=142512004d2de29882f11c6b61ece6be)

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FCopyofDSC00371.jpg&hash=db3d41cf3e05e5508888a131355a8039)

Test fit, almost like a glove, but hole is still too big

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FDSC00372.jpg&hash=5e690153894f140b7c3745a3a7d53961)

Lay down a bead of sealant

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FDSC00373.jpg&hash=6a866c8cd7ce528f66ff5f1508cc7de2)

Not shown was the trimming of the stock Apexcone supplied rubber grommit to come through the purple cap hole from beneath and take up most of the gapping instead of just gooping it with a mount of sealant. But the grommet was not watertight enough since this sits 4" from the ground at the front bumper..

To the rescue: The inevitable mountain of RTV sealant :(

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FDSC00376.jpg&hash=755f57ceac835191e907cd48ed5bd03c)

The product waiting to set:

(http://dubberz.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fv219%2Flchan1983%2FDSC00377.jpg&hash=6c3926a3d2bcdc0e64b7693248605033)

Hope they hold!

I also screwed the front lip to the bumper. all the clips broke off from the bumper due to being so low causing the lip to sag and look like ass. it looks good now but still pretty ghetto as I have screws in the middle of the lip since that part broke as well. Gonna rock this setup until winter is over, no point getting a new lip now.

also put my new(er) flair on to finally get rid of my old broken one.. its been like that since i bought the car.
i ended up taking a heat gun to the inside of the flair to heat it up and bent the top portion outwards a bit to give the tires a bit more clearance and so i dont start cutting into my flair like im doing on my passenger side. now its time to do that passenger one :thumbup:

That's EXACTLY what I want to do! Where'd you get the material?

In other news.... whoever installed my VR catback used a reaaaaly thin insert and sucks balls at welding... so it came loose.  Sitting at a shop right now, they tell me I might need a new muffler (they're totally full of shit though).

fabricana in richmond.. but i'm warning you that the material isn't proper headliner stuff (real headliner material has a foam backing), so the adhesive bleeds through .. I didn't notice it once it was in the car though..and my material wasn't stretchy enough, so there are some wrinkles in the corners. If you can live with that it's well worth it

it really doesnt need a foam backing. you just need to choose your material better. something that is a bit thicker, but not to heavy. Also needs to have a bit of stretch.  :)

or dont use so much glue ! an let it tack up a bit before you lay the material down an it shouldnt bleed

i gotta get me some of those.  how much were they?


i was cleaning an old fuel tank out with the varsol and chain trick in the back alley. jerry cans everywhere cause we were emptying the one into the car and dumping it into another car. we had a battery and some wires out also because we were testing a fuel pump out...

long story short the fire department was called because someone saw "smoke and flames" somewhere on our block. fire command unit, 3 ladder trucks, a couple vans, 3 cop cars...

ended up with a giant circle of fire fighters around us while we tried to explain that we were just emptying out a gas tank, and that it wasnt really as bad as it looked!!!! scary situation either way!

I have to raise the coils so that I have a bit of clearance between the tire and fender.  I will probably do that once I get the car back.

Put $10 in the tank...it'll last me a week! :D

Oh yeah, picked up some Corrado steelies. Dropping them off in the next two days to get widened at Green's and I may possibly paint them if I have the time this weekend (and enough notecards...)

Also got a notification from eBay that my Wolfsburg chrome window winders and aluminum gas cap have been shipped out!

15's are just generally too big for rabbits IMO...

Mainly due to two reasons:

1) My tires on my current set of wheels are brand new, and it'd be nice to be able to use them again!
2) 11.1" brakes are VERY tempting right now.

Plus, I think if my car was lower with less poke on the part of the wheels, it'll look very balanced overall. The overall goal for the car is some show and some go, and deciding to stay on the "larger" side of things with 15's I think will help accomplish that goal from the way I see things.

I really want to rebuild a set of 14" BBS mesh wheels before summer though. We'll see what happens...

you'll be happy with it. they're really nice (i bought the regular version and powdercoated it)

be careful to keep its internals clean though. It doesnt have an o-ring, its just a mechanical fitment seal, so if you scratch it, then its toast.

That's one thing that I noticed when I pulled it out of the foam and pushed on the piston.  I looked at the manual online before it arrived, and they call for their special lube, and say not to use anything else.  Is the Turbosmart lube available at Mopac as well?  Silly kangaroos.

not sure. although i do need to clean up and lube mine.

i'll probably give them a call this week. if they have to order it, do you want me to order a 2nd?

If you could let me know if they've got it, that'd be great.  I'm still stuck on the island unfortunately, so I just get stuff from them through my friend's dyno shop in Victoria since they get free shipping.

I understand the want for 11" brakes, especially when you are still equipped with original non power brakes on a rabbit, whith the amount of power the car should have come from the factory with :o However, a rabbit with just 10.1's and aftermarket pads or even rotors, and a power brake setup, would do you more than well, just replace what needs to be replaced, including brake fluid, new shoes in the rear and drums if need be or even have them machined if they need some work. just throwing it out there, but I even had just mk2 GTI front brakes on my old rabbit (with power assist) and it stopped really well, but the 10.1 would be great, and then if you really want you can go for the 14's if you like. But I run 15's on my rabbit, so who am I to say anything, I just got a really good deal on my wheels and they are super duper light. However our rabbits are styled much differently, I prefer the look of your car by far. Oh yeah, I have still got the 10.1 setup too, you can grab the whole thing including the rear disks if you like for 100 bucks.

This is the 2nd one I've done, my first runs 1.4 bar when cold so the engine hesitates when I step on the pedal.  Gonna have to rebuild that one again and see wtf the problem is, probably just a tiny little piece of crap stuck on the diaphragm.  It's sooooo nice being able to just turn the car on and drive smoothly. :hi:

This thing prevented my from getting into 1st, 3rd, reverse...heck all 6 if it wanted to.

Hard to believe!

2 1/2 hrs later, after removing the shifter linkage and all the crap that has to come out before hand, and putting it all back together and hopeing you didn't @#%@ anything up...I hope I put the assembly back the way Dennis had it....it shifts like a brand new car now!

Satisfaction!

I also replaced the two pieces in blue as it was recommended from VM.
All better now!
Now on to the heater core!
