Alrighty gang, been on the org since early 2001 and I think it's time I started a picture thread. :rotfl:...

Mostly this thread will contain pic's of Pepe and Pepe Jr on the track (testing to see who remembers how Jr came to life..), or getting ready to be on the track.

I'll throw an occasional GTG pic or two in the mix as well.

I'm starting by going backwards, in that the first pics will be from this weekend when I updated his brakes (new front rotors, new pads all around), and put new studs in after I had new hubs installed this past winter.

I’ll try and keep posting up new pics as they happen.

Enjoy,

TechnoTrix’d…. :wave3:

Alright, time to get my bug on again. Pepe Jr. is going to get some much needed TLC over the next few months, so I will start to post-up on this thread a little more often.

Couple of pics to give you some back-ground of Pepe Jr.

Stuff going on right now:
New water pump, tensioner, heater hoses, crank scraper.

Sitting in the garage:
New Votex front bumper (soon to be TecknoBlue)
Caliper cooling ducts and 3" hose
ABD intake mani

Stuff going to go on soon:
Eliminator 2 big turbo kit (lot's of bits associated with that)
Peliquin LSD
New axle rods
B.F. Goodrich Race DOT tires onto my TSW Trophy rims

So, as you can see, lots to do...

Enjoy......TechnoTrix'd...:wave3:

Yep, the little girl in the picture above eating something between Bill's Turbo S and Dave's Sukhoi inspired car is now almost 13 and in 7th grade... :D

Yep, that was a great trip spent with even nicer people..

Looking forward to capturing more experiences like this in the future with a different group of Org members. Going to be out at this years Columbus OH show in August, so I hope to see a number of these folks again (with or without a VW).

Enjoy what your doing today, as when it passes, it's gone.

Bringing this one back from the dead :p

First set of pictures is my updated air-intake set-up with a new MAF I did in February. Been running strong ever since.

Next couple of posts are a few pics of me replacing my rear third brake light assembly.

I have the swivel style rear emblem, so a few extra steps are needed.

Pic of new brake light, pic of three screws that hold light in place, pic of brake light connector, comparing old vs new light assemblies, trying to get my one finger in to hold the mounting point for one screw, snapping the panel back in, and connecting the final two screws.

Good timing sir ;-). Give me a ring before you start so I can give you the 411 on the rear swivel badge.

Plus your tiny fingers will be a big plus while doing this swap. :p
