    Well recently I have had my car at my work getting the bodywork and everything done. So far I have stripped and painted the bay. Re-cleared my cf hood, finished the bodywork on both quaterpanels and doors. It is a 95 so I shaved the wing holes for a 97+ turbo wing. Car is getting very close to completion and I'm starting to get anxious LOL

    I'm going to be getting my 95 TSI in less than a week and then I'll be prepping it for paint. Not doing the door jams just a little body work and a new coat of paint.

    Finished the roof up today. Finally all the body work is done. Now I just have to block it straight, mask it up, and then paint the s.o.b
