  1. I had a 2016 VW GTI before this but the FWD spun tires every time I pulled out and it was only marginal getting up my drivewaw in snow. The big thing was my wife refused to ride in it because of the harsh suspension. I finally got this VW Golf R after the local dealer found one above his VW allotted 2, having to trade two Tiguans for it! This has been a dream for me. The all wheel drive handles my steep driveway well and the 294 HP tiny 2-litter pulls the car well. The most amazing thing is the active struts ... they smooth everything rough and handle better than the GTI by far. What's most amazing is the car rides better than the GTI to the extent that my wife likes (!) the ride! I've had 5 Porsches, a Triumph TR4A and this one beats them all!
  2. I think those headlights are from an AMT kit
  3. Jethro Tull at Trinity College in 1969, sitting on a gym floor with Ian Anderson kicking his leg over my head as he played a flute!. They were little known and this had to be their first US Tour. I was a fan to the end!
  4. Very cool! I remember seeing one of these in a junkyard when stationed in Germany 50 years ago.
  5. Considering how much I hate painting, I bow down in awe of you!
  6. You can buy Refill paint for the pens. This is even better chrome from an airbrush, especially for bumpers and larger pieces
  7. Without pictures we have to guess, but Molotow chrome pens have pretty much taken over this job.
  8. Having been there yourself figures you would have caught me in this. It did have USA ovals, but we put those on top of the D ovals it came with off the German economy. I just left it after realizing it. Lots of other things and I even have the true VW paint color. This is staying as is unless I build a better one.
  9. I've used soda cans cut out for thin, bent plates. This is a 1/24 plate ... soda can and decal ... resin nuts
  10. I don't go a small, but I'll print just a top line of plates and trim the top of the paper after of the decal strip. Save and feed again witj other decals.
  11. That is one beautiful piece of work!
  12. That's a beauty .. do you need to borrow my chipping hammer?
  13. This is some beautiful going on here! Do put some working suspension in it .. pleeease! My Dad had a '65 Galaxy that I borrowed when I first got my license. I thought it was going to roll on it's side on the first corner from my house. I turned around and parked in our driveway. That was the last time I drove that scary thing and it convinced me to never buy an American car! It did have a beautiful metallic turquoise paint and was a good looking car.
