My Build Thread

6/19/10 - PICS ADDED - Page 4 post #73
7/30/10 - PICS ADDED - Page 7 post #145
1/19/11 - PICS ADDED - Page 8 Post #168
2/27/11 - PICS ADDED - Page 9 Post #183
5/11/11 - MORE UPDATES - Go to last page


So I've seen a bunch of people making their build threads, so I figured, why dont I make one too? Heres my car from beginning to now. I will be updating this thread with anything new added, to keep everyone else updated, and to keep track of what I have done. There will be a lot of pics, so if your still using internet from the stone age, leave now. On to the thread/pics...

^ I cant believe how different it looks now!

July 9, 2008 - Yellow city lights and spray tinted tails.





July 13, 2008 - Smoked Sidemarkers, OSIR spoiler (obviously did not fit lol), and stickers!







August 10, 2008 - Plastidipped rear emblem, Tinted & Dropped! Bought Autotech Clubsport kit and removed OSIR spoiler.







September 2, 2008 - Wheels! I found a local who was selling RS6 Replica wheels. Dont remember what the sizing was. I also removed the plastidip from the rear emblem and put it on the front .







Heres another with the RS6 wheels



Now on to my "HDR phase"

October 23, 2008 - Weathertech visors, Votex front lip and GTI sideskirts





Heres a non HDR'd one

I have an extra front bumper that has painted rubs, but I dont think I'm going to use them. I'm most likely going to have my front end shaved and the grille custom done up. Hopefully before June 12, if not later on down the road.

Thanks man. I didn't like the grille at first because it was like a metal mesh, but it kind of grew on me. I think it will definitely look better completely badgeless.

Wheels are just great with the car and like what youve done to the car(most of it). But i liked it more before going air. Guess im just not into the whole slammed thing.
But damn, even Huffs look great on your car!
