so i broke down and did my timing chains on my mk3 vr6.... fml. i pulled it all apart and relized that i had ordered the wrong upper chain set up :banghead: i didnt want to put my tranny back in just to have to pull it apart the next week so i left it apart and waited for the right chains to show up



so i was sitting in front of all my parts i had just taken off. they were a little dirty so i cleaned them up and thought to my self i can do better than this and reember that i had a sand blaster. so i spent an after noon sand blasting. everything looked sooooo clean but the right chains still werent here so i decided to paint a few parts



a few years ago i painted my tranny

bright green... what was i thinking????

so i fixed that too


then my chains showed up and i put it all back to gether.... i never want to pull my tranny again i fought it for four hours before i could get it to set right :banghead: :banghead: i dont think i have ever hated my car as much as i did at that point. but i got her all back in and good and sutff. started it up and o my a vr sound soooooo good without the chains rattling :drool: and this is how it all sits now


:unibrow: :unibrow: :unibrow:
im thinking next week im going to relocate the battery, bypass the throttle body coolant lines, and maybe pull the hvac and cluster and throw in some leds.

led cluster and switches!! i think if matches my deck pretty well

Image

not really for my gti but i was doing timing chains on a vr6 and really didnt want to do it one the ground so i made me an engine stand.
