Don't know ... I just moved here about 2 months ago.

I've seen the name before ... "little santa clara"


Good luck with the move.

Re: Ivan Cadiente - Santa Clara, CA (Praetor5)

Thanks Chris! Por-Kits aren't installed yet. I guess this would have been a great time with the holidays and all. Oh well


Pics are complimentary!


Oh yeah, the leather is coming along nicely ... having some issues with bunching. Some is supposed to be like that ... others not. Its just very TIME consuming.

I hear ya. I don't think I'd have the patience to do that on my own. I'd rather just shell out the 150 for install. heheh but that's lazy ol' me. I love the color combo!

Re: Ivan Cadiente - Santa Clara, CA (vw18t)

Thanks for the compliments guys.

New mods on the way (tomorrow at the earliest):

I still haven't got the Eibach's installed, New Dimensions wants $450 to install it!!! Anyone have any other ideas?
