    I love UPS.

    So I awoke this morning at about 915. I put my contacts in as I do everyday. I go downstairs to make some breakfast as I do every day. But there's something special about today. I can feel it in the air. Maybe I've won the lottery. I did buy that ticket last night. But I forgot it out in the car. Better go get it. I could be sitting on millions and not know it! I grab my keys and run out the back door. The door swings open and hits a box. A big brown box. With UPS stickers on it. It has my name on it. I wonder what this could be.



    Hmm. It might be a blender. Or a DVD player. Let's open it.



    Oh, two boxes inside a box! Perhaps it's 2 DVD players? Or a DVD player and a blender?



    What's this? Let's dig a little deeper.



    It's not a blender. It's not even a DVD player. It's a driver side Abt Tuning headlight for a Mk3 Golf!!



    It's a matching set. Now I just need to have them resprayed in Windsor Blue, and I can put them on. Special thanks to Manny in New Jersey who sold them to me for a pretty good deal, considering how rare a part this is anymore. He packed these things better than a lot of companies I've bought stuff off of. And after I couldn't get in touch with him at the show we were going to meet at, he picked up the shipping tab.

    A while ago I recorded a short clip of my exhaust. Don't think I've ever posted it up on here. Right click, save as...

    Paint has been ordered to respray Abt duals; ETA late next week. And a new Europlate is on its way.

    *If anyone knows where I can get Hella or Osram Sylvania H2 and H4 bulbs, as well as T4W bulbs in either amber or blue, I'd appreciate it.*

    Abt's were primed, painted, and cleared the last 2 days. Three friggin' coats of clearcoat to get it looking how I wanted it.


    New Europlate.

    Should be ordering new bulbs and brackets to mount them tomorrow.

    I was bored so I colormatched my door handles. They're not perfect, but as you'll see my paint is far from perfect so it doesn't really matter.

    And that's about all the money I've got left right now...

    I'm a wimp and I'm scared to cut my radiator support to make them fit. I think I might see if anyone in my area's done it before and wants to lend a hand. Patience ya bastids.

    Spastik_Roach will finally get off my back.

    I did it. The previous owner installed them a little differently than most people. He bent the headlight tabs instead of bending the rad support. This actually made putting them in very easy. I had to redrill two holes to mount the screws. Other than that, it took maybe an hour and a half to do. Wiring isn't done, as I have no ability with that stuff at all. I'm waiting for my uncle to get home from work so I can have him do it.

    I'm going to shut up now and get to the pictures. SPIDER STYLZ FOR LIFE YO

    You could fit another light in the middle.

    Next on my long, long.... long... list of parts is coilovers. But this is going to be 3 months at the earliest, since I'm broke and starting school in less than two months.

    Here's some pictures wired up.
