Went through this and cleaned up a lot of the broken links. If you feel like wasting your time go ahead and read how to waste a lot of time and money with a TT:beer:
And some more pics from after I lowered her

Then I rebuilt some Moda M2's and made them pink, which was a huge hit with everyone:rolleyes:





Then I added a rack because we all love em


With the lowered Radio Flyer



Then I added a fairing

And at VAG Fair 2011 I realized that in order to run a fairing on the rack I would need to run smaller wipers. Over an hour drive in pouring rain with no wipers:bang head: FYI this is one of the few times the car has ever seen rain since I've owned it

But it was worth it for this. Not bad for the first and only time I showed it. 8 people in our club showed and 4 of us placed.

Then when I was jacking the car up to check the rear control arms I found this. Remind you there was under a year and maybe 7000 miles on them.



So I addressed the rust sent the arms out to get rebuilt and spent the following 2 weeks trying to get the POR15 off of my skin:facepalm::laugh:
I also too this off because of obvious reasons. Thank you PA roads for sucking

And I got the car back on the road just in time for H20 2011:thumbup:

This is why I'll be showing next year...Less cleaning up afterwards

And Then I reached the point of no return and decided to lower her as much as possible
Ultra top secret TT lowering parts:laugh:



I need to take the front collars out and remove the rear perches now and roll the fenders:(

(nice control arms BTW)
Thanks stranger! I was never one for documenting much, but I figured it was a time. And the control arms will need to be replaced in a matter of a year is my guess. As long as they stay free and dont cease I'll use them.
