hi guys,

Thanks for all the responces. Its been an internal battal as far as cutting the car up to make it lighter. With the responces i think i will leave the car as it is and just to what project sipster did.

Everything takes me a while to get done, partly due to financial situation and partly due to some of my physical limitations. I did move my fuel cut off switch to my gear shifter to make it easier to get to and i like it there much better. the car has really tall gears in it already I was told it has the tallest 5th gear that vw put in them, and driving the car makes me a believer of that.

the grill block worries me a bit but im going to start doing it in small implements. I have a couple of small pieces of plexi glass i can cut to make the headlights smooth and was thinking that maybe blocking the lower grill portion first...............I mean if i did a bumper type airdam (Bumper to 4 inches above the ground) it would have the lower grills blocked anyways.

thanks again guys.
