My buddy mike actually has the questions but since his PC took a crap he asked if I could post them.
The first question is for all of you who have shaved your own bumpers.
What brand of plastic welder do you prefer/suggest?
And the 2nd question is for those of you who are knowledged in air ride systems.
Is there an application for the MKIII that has threaded struts/shocks so you can go real low?
I've heard of these applications being available for mini trucks but nothing for a VW.

yeah man, soldering iron + spare bumper.
if you go to an art place like Michaels they have soldering iron/wood burning kits that come with like 8 different tips.

i bet this is one of those "my friend wants to know" but really i'm just too embarrassed to ask the question as if i need the answer

Nah man you're way off. First of all in order for me to want to know all this I would have to have plans to do this to my car and there's nothing happening to my cabby anytime soon other then it sitting and collecting dust until next year when it goes up for sale.
The cabby is done and will be done until someone buys it and does what they want to it. Its been a fun 3yrs+ with it but its time to move on.
