Thanks, I am very happy with how it turned out. Few more changes since then, and a few more to come. Just small things now.

After that was all done I had to clean up the car for some pics.

Gave the inside a quick clean:

All clean and dry:

Thanks, had a little bump today, somehow scratched a wheel. Have no idea how it happened. But luckily we still have some powder left that color.

You using wheel spaces? If so, what size? Looking at getting them for the GTI, but not sure what size to get.

I have a Canon 60D, really like it, but would love some upgraded lenses. They are just $$

No wheel spacers, it depends on the offset of the wheels. Mine fit great as it.

Been doing a lot of hauling lately, helping out my buddy at his Powder Coating shop:

Which causes a lot of this:

Image

Image

So I had to do this:

Image

Which left me with this:

Quite pleased.

Well these things weren't going to last. They were pulling themselves off, scraped on everything all the time. Its too bad cause I like the look. Thought about cutting them down, but in the end just got rid of them.

No more flaps:

And cause why not, a pic in the rain:

More with the removal and cleaning up. My rear wiper stripped out and cracked. So I pulled it off and plugged it. $2 at Lowes.
