Making the new grills is so much fun you have no idea, here is the lower grill for the new T3 front Fascia, and its not done need one more lower grill to cut, any one have a spare one on the floor or ?, and i cut one of the 2 upper grilles i have, will work on it more today i know in the end it will be worth it.

Reminds me of a song, they want to send me to rehab but i will not go, to day i fell like going.

All you need to do is desolder them from the board and solder the new ones.

That would be nice, not sure which color i want to go with but color change would be sweet.

Are you still selling the rear diffuser?

So are you just opening up the exhaust tip holes for dual tips or is there more I'm missing? I want to run dual tips but don't want to mess mine up. Thanks Ofer.

I start by cutting the opening up all the way a cross, then i cut out the flat part out, then move 1/2 the opening out and weld it back, now start to cut the flat pc to fill back the the sides and make it look like OEM.

And now the fun starts, after its all welded in to one part you need to sand the extra plastic off and start to apply the plastic filler and do all the body work.

Looks like i went beyond the limits of my collovers, Driving back for Cal last week i get off the freeway and here a noise in the rear, But they where working on the road so no big deal i think, I get gas and go home and all seemed O.K. at the time.

Next day i was going to get food ( I do that a lot, I am single) and going down the road it sounds like my exhaust is hitting something, i have not had a problom with that at all, so it seamed odd.

On Tuesday i was thinking i got what got PQ with the car (Rear Lower Control Arm Endlink Tab) so i look and they are fine, But i think may be i got something under there in the drive line, Pull the driver side wheel off and look and check all the nuts and bolts, That side is fine,, put it back on and lower the car as i had to do some work.


So skip to Friday and i pull off the passenger side wheel and this is what i find, The passenger side collover is leaking, Now this is a set of early Pedders collovers and i drive my car allot.



So as you can see i found my problem, So this morning i PMed JusticePete and was amazed at the response

Quote:
No need, unless you want to visit with me , as a replacement monotube is being shipped out today along with some coil wrap! We are Pedders with over the top customer service!
Now that is costumer service, Thank you Pete and Pedders for great Help.
