Not sure how much all the mods have cost me. Most of the modification has been taking weight out, and much of that was free!
Profession: I'm a graphic designer by trade but I also run a few forums (JDMST, VWGolf.net.au, Australian INfront, and I'm just launching Zen Garage).
No updates form me, still tweaking suspension:
I'm having issues with the front tyres rubbing the guard on mid corner bumps, more specifically exactly where the guard meets the front bar. Fine on the passenger side but since that fucked up tyre place (name which I won't mention) popped out my front bar it pops out on it's own now, drivers side. I had a good look under there today, the tab that holds the bar to the guard itself is damaged. Not sure what to do.
I've also adjusted both damper and bump on the fronts to APs spec (Anthony Mitchell who very generously shared his settings with me), ride is much more compliant now, was way too crashy before.
Also added some stickers under the hood. As much as I love collecting stickers I hate sticking them on anything. When I do stick a sticker on a car I end up hating it, then ripping it off soon after. I figure this is a good out of sight out of mind way to represent!
Cheers guys, just confirming these are my own shots with my little GF1. The pro photographer's photos will be featured in a magazine in 2-3 months from now (!). I'll be sure to post them up here when the magazine let's me.
