Sukanas Journal

I never thought I'd make a journal.. but I've been doing a lot of stuff to my car so here it goes.

Step 1
I originally got my car in late august 2010
Carbon Steel Gray, Manual Transmission. Nothing else.






Step 2
My first 'mod' were interior LEDs. Bought at superbrightleds.com. Best quality LEDs ever. Testimonies not just from me, but from VW to Toyota owners. No need to buy "LED Interior Kit for MK6..." do you buy your house a "Fluorescent Bulb Kit?"




Got these license plate LEDs here and they are IDENTICAL to USP's. Delivered in about 12 days.


Monster Mats




Step 3
Tiguan Pipe


Did a PlugnPlay Kit, major fail so did my first retro. Turned out okay IMO, never knew this would embark me a on a new journey... Lesson Learned: Use gloss paint instead of matte, improved on cutting and sealing headlights, and etc



Full of fail...


First "successful" retro. Paint job and projector mounting wasn't the best.



Step 4: The Little Things
Glass Plug Delete


BSH Race Intake


9w7


Euroswitch

Step 5: Retro Transition
Eventually went to all red/black w/ halos




Then all blacked out... will have black/chrome w/ different look to match w/ my wheelsetup better.


Step 6: LED Tails



Pending... Step 7: ST Suspension thats 400 miles away...


Also got front lip spoiler thats gonna be arriving soon

For The 5 domes. They also fit in the glove box and footwells. So 8 total.

For visors. (3710-xHP3) You need two.

For trunk. (4210-xHP3) You need one.

Sukanas is right. These are quality leds. They look to be out of the cool white for the domes. That's the color I went with.

I mean, i'd like the colors to match... So far for the domes... I have "Natural White" and then for the visors and trunk.. I have "Cool White"... not sure if this will look right? Also, Sukanas, if you could post your exact order of LED's that would be great my friend.
