The performance of my lights is become a real nuisance of recent. I've refurbished the lenses and keep them polished yet there wasn't any improvement after the last time I did so. Alternator seems to be putting out over 13v on idle however only 9v is getting to the lights? Any...
Oddly enough, the broken dipstick on my Sept. 2003 build AWM 1.8T has a handle (lower portion, still in tact) that looks like this:
Yet, the one specified for my car based on build date looks more like this:
The first dip stick is about 1/2 inch shorter (measured from where the plastic...
I was doing an oil change and when i pulled the dip stick out it got cought on the clip and with no force the tube snapped into 3 pieces, now when ever i drive, only been 2 miles, oil is spraying all over the engine compartment. Is it a bitch fix or what should i do?
So I finally got around to dipping all the chrome on my car this weekend with the help of my fiancee. It was a pretty cool process, and the product works just as advertised. I took some pictures for you guys to see the end results!
Here I am hard at work!

I'm looking at blacking out the chrome on the bullet 1.5 and I stumbled across Plasti Dip. Has anyone used this product? It looks too good to be true honestly, but I like the idea of being able to peel it off if it looks like crap. If this is a load of crap, can anyone recommend a better simple...

Im thinking about plasti-dippin' my chromed Fresco Green 3BG B5 Passat. The way i am planning to do is just using this material for the body /chromes area.

I'm plastidipping these Anthracite once I get new tires on them, but what should I do for the curbage and rough parts of the wheels? I understand I need to sand them out, I'm more looking for specific grits / technique so I don't make more work for myself :rolleyes:
Here dey are:
Last night I went out to check my oil in my engine (AEB) 1.8T and it broke off in my hand. Now I have no idea where to order a new one from as I have been told that there is 3 different ones by autozone. Please help me as I'm lost
My car has been peeling clear coat for over 5 years now. It started with the hood, which I eventually completely peeled, and then had a shop repaint it. It came out great, but it was very $$. The roof is now in terrible shape, and it will cost even more to paint that.
I've been looking at...
My center console is tacky/sticky, because the outer layer of the rubber coating has been worn away. There is actually color coming up (but hasn't peeled down to the actual plastic). Is there some sort of plastic clearcoat I can apply to prevent the color and tacky problems?
Hello guys! I am considering plasti dipping my whole car and wanted to see what you guys think and if anybody has had any experience trying this. I am thinking either white or black as of right now! I have a decent amount of experience with dip so far. Heres a picture of the trunk matte black.
