    Holy crap so I take it you didn't manage to have it towed to the paint shop saturday morning, eh? Hopefully some miscellaneous emissions parts fell-off while it was being towed, it'll make for less things to put back together later :D
    I can post some of the tear-down pics I took if you want when I get home from work.

    Lemme know when the engine work commenses

    are you going to tint your face DSG too? (the original picture of the concept is badass btw)

    I'm incredibly excited to see this by the end.

    Did you have fun ripping it to pieces?

    one of the pictures reminded me of mine at that point:

    haha, actually yeah, we had a fun time tearing it up...it wasn't until we ran into a complete stranger that knew 5.0 litres better than he knew how to breath, that we really got things rolling.

    The good news: My engine after all it's kilometers, looks great, so it's a great foundation to build off of.

    The bad news: wow, a whole lotta vacuum lines decided to snap during the removal of things

    Some more pics of the teardown...I actually think the front shots look mean as hell

    these are the 3 guys that helped me a ****load overall, so I figured I'd grab a picture of'em...all 3 of em lurk around on here, well, 2 of'em, Stephane finally decided to join us last year

    Stephane, feel free to post whatever pics you have, i'd be excited to add them to my collection...

    wow, she looks a wreck.
    it's amazing how brutal the car must look first before it goes through its transformation into a beatiful sex beast.

    I'm anxiously anticipating this bad boy...

    edit: Aaron, the name of the guy whose dad is selling the 18" chrome rebel rims is Cobra_Dusten
    just in case you wanted to know

    Who has the Neon? :D At the very first pass on the rear end, that was my first thought.

    Joking aside, it looks like you're having a blast!
