What did you do for your Volkswagen today?

Postby Rennwagen1 on Feb Wed 28, 2007 9:15 am

Kinda like it says.....keep us updated!

I recieved a new coolant hose kit for the GTi, and low temp themostat, low temp fan switch, thermo housing, radiator cap...Time for a cooling system overhaul after I blew another hose on the way back from Bozeman a couple of week ago.....Plan to install them either friday night, or this weekend....

Anyone else?

This isn't anywhere near as cool as Wade's Carputer project, but I made a mount for My Palm TX today.

The mount attaches to the dash with suction cups, so no damage to the car, or the Palm. :)
Now I just need a better way to pipe music into the Monsoon than thru the tape deck. :oops:

Thats sweet joe! Do you really want to keep the stock deck? Otherwise my roomate eddie works at premier fx and could get you a deal on a deck. Once my carputer is in I will be selling my deck and it matches the lights pretty well.

I do want to keep the stock unit.
I am really not an audio buff, so the Monsoon is more than adequate for me. Plus no deck looks as nice in the dash as the stock one, IMO.
