How bout a "what did you do to your vw today" thread

Postby twitch » October 1st, 2012, 2:40 am

Well I'm sure lots of people have seen this type of thread on other forums so how bout we have one too! This is open to all types of dubs, I wouldn't want to keep it just for the mk2's haha.


I'll start, my brothers power steering pump pooped the bed on his mk2 GTI so that was swapped out for another pump. In the process of doing that I figured I might as well replace the leaky valve cover gasket as well. Also found a couple other small things to tidy up/fix so that was most of the morning/early aft.

Also swapped in a new front mount on my diesel jetta since I got it for free with the pump. Yay for no more funny noises.

Then I couldn't help but do a quick test fit of my 14x10/14x8 steelies on his car. He's only got a 60/40 drop. Needed to be lower in the front coils would solve that.

I changed the water pump on my 91 golf. Decided to start puking coolant on my way bro joes house to pick up his hood.... Then I did an oil change. Not the ideal way to spend a Sunday!

summer wheels have to come off soon and I'll have to get used to the
meatballs again so I thought I'd make them a little cooler.

Plasti dip spray with vinyl lettering template. Had to sand off the raised
lettering first but worked pretty good.
