You seem mad bro, are you?

I didn't correct any mechanical errors, just spelling on "Granet" I changed it to "granted".

*edit: I did put a comma there too, my bad...I promise that's where I stopped though.

So, I was acting smart referring to menu 21?
OK...sorry you took that personally too.

Anyway, I was curious to see your avg. MPH compared to your avg.MPG

Window wouldn't roll up. It took me all of 20 minutes to get the door apart, in the dark. Old cars are so easy to work on

yep, lots of different kind of vinyls though I guess. the place where they got it installed said that it wasn't the greatest vinyl, didn't stretch very well. but they did a good job. hardest part was taking the top trim off.

You teach there? Very nice. I once really wanted to attend that school, then life happened. What do you teach?

I have been teaching there for 6 years, and 3 years before that at the Conservatory in Arizona.

I mainly teach Tracking, and Mixing on the Large Format Consoles:
48 channel SSL Duality
48 Channel SSL 9000
60 channel Neve VR

I also teach Mastering.

No. You'd have to have some serious mods to pull it off and a Jetta probably isn't going to look aggressive enough to warrant such an exterior look. JMHO>

Didn't we already have this conversation in your PS request that turned into Plasti-Dip thread?

Yea. But i decided i would work it out myself and get a "preview" of it. I like it. It's different. Not something you'd see every day. Also i think i have my car set up aggressively enough to make it work. I'm rocking 17" black MSW racing wheels and the Eibach Pro Cup Kit. My latest rendering is attached. (The picture was taken BEFORE i put wheels and Eibach Pro Cup on). There's very minimal wheel gap currently.

Still no. There is a reason you don't see these every day....or at all.
