    Got all the insides out so can get a good look at the work needed. I think the worst bit is all the water proofing mastic over the panel joints inside.. did you trim any of that back or just go for it ?

    When I did the shift boot mod on my A4 before swapping it to an M6, this is what I found under the console and the surrounding carpet. I bet if I pulled the carpet I would find even more. It was just a bit over $12.

    The floss part was a bit gummy but I made use of the pick end. I am still looking for where the ticket came from to make sure I didn't win something.

    I was supposed too have waxed mine again yesterday (after the clay bar and light waxing last week) but fell behind in schedule. I'll have to settle for a drive through wash and wash and spray detailing.

    Sounds like the weather report has moved to rain?

    Ya' think 6/32 tread will do good on a wet autocross ??

    Got some motivation and took off the remaining items of the Procharger setup so I can replace parts which were damaged last summer. Found 2 more pulleys damaged; one on the supercharger setup and the power steering pulley. Time to buy more parts. Hopefully that small pulley isn't hard to get.

    Hey Jon,
    A few years ago I wanted to add a different pulley to my procharger setup. I went to see my buddy down at NAPA, and after pulling several different pulleys out of the boxes, we finally found a stock Ford pulley that worked perfectly. It was just a game of luck, but well worth it in the end.

    I have an email into Bob at Brute Speed. I can look at NAPA. I'm thinking it might be a special pulley by how it looks. It rides on a a shaft which doubles as a stand-off

    The turnaround on my SFC's was insane! I came home from work on Tuesday, and they were here, waiting for me!

    Temperatures and Humidity have absolutely been great the last several days, so it got a complete detailing both inside and out. Did a bid of driving before that, fell in love with it all over again. Now sitting under the car cover waiting for another great weekend car show!!

    Just had to have the local tire shop look at my wheels and tires because they thought mounting 285/40/17's was mounting "rubber band" thickness sidewall tires.

    My response "My sidewalls are taller than some econboxes' that you mount tires for, all week long."
