Did my first few dye's last night and I am hooked.

Tested the waters with this. Contact paper and masking tape. Was a pain.

Then the guy at my local sign shop hooked me up with some stuff called gerbermask (Its what they use to mask when they dye/paint. Cuts and works better than vinyl.) and got me a good source for transfer tape.

Tried out those items on this lighting disc, wich apparently don't take to dyes very well as this was in the pot for 45 minutes.

Then this was the real test to see if I could do this.

Ooooo nice, that must be the reason for the avatar. I've been kicking around the idea of an 09 GTI but i'm waiting for the mk6 right now. How's your mk5 treated you thus far?

It's sick. I've got APR stage 1 and have run a 14.23 on my iPhone's dynolicious. I think I can hit high 13s at the track with some traction. It's killer so far. I have no gripes about it what so ever

Nope has yet to break down on me. I know the quirks these things have and I have nipped all of them in the butt. Charger was sent off to KK as soon as I bought it for a nice fresh rebuild and port. What do you have MK4 GTi? Reflex Silver?

I lived with a guy that had a VR6. Sure it had it's problems but that is the most fun I've had driving a car. More fun than a Type-R and an M3.

My g60 right now is probaly on par or a little faster than a stock VR6. But the G60's handle better. Its a blas to drive and race on the auto-x track.

i still can't get over the fact you put the outline of a VW Scirocco on a disc.....you could have at least put the new one on there and not the old one.....oh well to each his own.....nice work
