Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for the level of boredom you reach while reading this update. Not much really happens, you have been warned!
This update is well overdue, and so was a bath for the Golf! Now that the wheels were on and the suspension lowered down, it was time to clean up all the odds and ends that were bugging me since I bought it.
To take the tollway beeper holders off, I soften up the glue with a heat-gun and then they just come right off. Would you believe me if I told you that a few years ago when I first bought my S15, someone I knew wanted to use a chisel and a hammer to remove one of these from the windscreen? Crazy, huh! I gave him the same friendly answer that you probably would have.
The pile of undesirables. I timed this cleanup well, as my registration was due and I had a new sticker to attach to the car in a much better position. I’m pretty OCD with my registration stickers, they have to be in the right spot or I start to breathe heavily.
I also swapped my front & rear plates around, as the front one was all battered, and the rear one was in better condition but hidden in a covered frame. So by swapping them around, the dodgy one is hidden behind plastic while the straight one is bolted to the front where it can shine like a broadway star.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you fluff up an uneventful day into a 13 picture update.
