    Re: Project: BuTSeX 310 (no vowels)

    Despite popular belief, I've been convinced otherwise to remain an active member on the forum. So here's an update.

    Just getting 6L/100km after 150km of both city and highway driving in a 4500lbs v6, no big deal.


    Bought a "dapper." decal, they sent me the wrong colour so that got pealed off.


    New proper colour was sent to me so I slapped on.


    My 30w CREE LEDs came in, CREE on the left, T10 5x5050 on the right.


    Better shot of both CREE installed running at 18w


    They're pretty bright.


    So, 4x4 TL time..


    Exhaust, stock mid-muffler and resonator, yuck.


    This was on sale at DC for like $30


    21" stock resonator vs 28" glasspack


    8" mid-muffler, I figured 21" resonator + 8" mid-muffler = 29" of quiet time, so the 28" glasspack should be comparable to stock but high flow for a growl at top end.


    Glasspack and mid-muffler delete welded in.


    All sealed up and sanded.


    Painted with high temperature ceramic paint.


    And finally, exhaust sound clip of my $50 exhaust that OfficerTooBaked helped me with.

    Nokya bulbs seem to be all the rage online so I ordered a set.


    Before


    After


    Ordered some Neo-Chrome lugs



    Ordered some Amber and Gold MetalCast for fog light/side marker tinting.


    Tinted the fender side markers, two coats.

    You're going to have to take that up with Clutch?, he was probably just creaming his pants over my yellow DRLs and amber sidemarkers lol

    A second update on the last one, just more pictures.

    After tinting the side markers they obviously look like crap because its a rattle can job


    So I took out the polisher now that they sat over tonight to cure and buffed them with a polishing compound, normally I would have used a cutting compound but I only did two coats and I didn't want to risk taking any tint away so this is after just polishing, nothing else.


    And now just more lighting pictures.

    Both yellow running lights, reflectors reflecting off the yellow bulbs.


    Running lights


    Running lights and fogs


    Running lights, fogs, and tinted side markers


    Now I just have to figure out how to wire in dual filiment bulbs for the signals in the headlight housing so I can swap the running lights to the signals and a T10 socket within the existing running light reflector, and then quad highbeams utilizing the 65w running light bulbs that are only running at 15w (because they're DRLs)

    My fuel consumption has also been reduced since the exhaust job, its already paying for itself, getting something like 550km a tank as opposed to 475km a tank and I'm not pushing it, just standard driving.

    I've always loved watching the little mods you do to your cars that seem to make a really big difference at the end of the day. Subtle things like slightly tinted side markers just help the overall darker theme of your car. I dig it.

    Thanks buddy, where's the Jetta thread at? I wanna see your work making it low and that retrofit.

    More of an update I guess? I'm bored so I'm just tinkering.
    The left side marker hasn't worked since I got the car so I figure, it can't get any worse right? So I popped it out again, put the heat gun on it for about 30 seconds on full power.


    And would you look at that, heat gun fixes anything.
