Re: FV-QR (dasbeast3.0)

you did a number on that stance buddy. Lookin real good. I might rock it hoodless when mine gets back on the road because I'm too poor to get one.

Looking good Will. Is it just me or does it look like your motor sits flatter than the vr6 normally does??

Re: FV-QR (vwpunk)

Thanks guys,
reasons for the "hood" ride:
1: Broken Hood Cable
2: Bad Motor mounts. Especially the front.
I wasnt about to put a dent in a VR hood, so I took it off for safe measure.
Punk made a very good observation. That sucker lies flat cause the front mount is done.

Re: FV-QR (DUBZAK)

I guess it just depends on the car....
I think this looks hot. The stance and the lack of hood and the wheels give it a muscle look.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I see a guy around my way that goes without a hood on a Corrado and it looks unfinished and low budget...

But then you see all the cars Performance VW shows withot hoods and they look smokin!
This one looks hot.

delrins are probably going to be excessive...
I have the yellow ones and my motor almost doesn't move at all, feels pretty damn close to stock
are you going to do the delrin subframe bushings as well?

Maybe too excessive for this set up, but I have gone nuts, and will be going very far in debt soon for the next phase of this cars life. Provided I dont lose my job this week.

Re: (dapucker1)

hood is actually fine, resting comfortably in my dining room.
Like I said with a bad front motor mount, I didnt want to risk denting it.
Broken hood cable is just a bonus.
BTW, anyone know a good way to remove the rear glass from the hatch without destroying the seal? Or will a new seal be required and cutting the old one out?
I have never taken the rear glass out before, and you can tell by my post count im a noob.

Re: (DUBZAK)

its 50/50 for me removing the rear window without trashing the seal
the seal is $150

rear offset is perfect for once, not all "hood" and poking

I can at least give you this hint. take your time in cutting the silicon from the backside of the window. Make sure you cut all of it before you try and remove the glass.
True story... ask my buddy ben who got cocky and just pressed on my hatch glass that ended up all over the floor
