    vintage wheels & tires.

    Finally. My T5 installed. Was quick. But put the t5 and the top loader always is fuc...ing hard to me.

    I did the work alone. I am very happy. Really pull hard.

    Only a problem now solved.

    Vibration!!!
    Resurfaced the flywheel, and clutch plate. The work was Bad done. Resurfaced On another shop. Solved some vibration. The others come from the contact from the t5 and the tunnel transmition.

    I don't have many pics of this work but I'll send what I have.
    We put in some extra wiring so Kim can lower the PASSNGER window without reaching over to do so .. There will be
    a small rocker switch near the steering wheel on the dash to do this. Couldn't have been possible without your generosity. Thanks again Sir !!
