Default My A4 ALH 2003 Jetta. Not exciting, but I love it.

As I'm fairly new to the forum, I haven't really done much to my car. But I've got a couple of pages of notes and projects I want to do, everything from new suspension to replacing the headliner.
Anyway, here is Orville, had him since he had 12 miles on him. And the second picture is my driveway, or used car lot, as my neighbor begrudgingly calls it. It's actually missing a few cars, but my 3 cars are there (bug, 560SL and Orville)

^just cleaned

Interesting collection, at the moment i can only dream about owning more then 1 car as unfortunately my drive only has 1 parking space and that's for my Jetta. The wife's Prius lives on the street.

I see that you also have a Jeep Cherokee. With their reputation for reliability I wonder how many members on here also have one of those in their driveways...

I love our jeep, almost as much as the tdi. I almost feel like if anything ever happens to the jeep motor, i should replace it with a tdi. haha.



Also took another picture of my car.


and one of my 1960 F100 that i had back in virginia.
This thing was unreal. ugly, but unreal.

It looks like you take good care of all your vehicles. The Jetta looks great, but then again, I'm a bit biased for platinum gray, since they aren't all that common.

Thanks. I love the platinum gray. It is starting to need some paint touch-ups. It is mostly chips in the hood, so a little sanding and extra paint and i'll be set. i just need to go get a bit more, the little bottle of touch up paint i had has dried out. I was thinking of trying to add some thinner to it, in the hopes of being able to use it but I wasn't sure if that would work or if I needed some more specific, car specific, paint thinner.

thanks. once i get this headliner/pillar upholstery project done i'll be getting to the chips quickly afterwards.

then onto suspension, brakes, egr cleaning, and the over-arching second timing belt job.

I've ignored my poor Orville too much. I've got quite a list of things to do. The new addition to the TDI family, Knurren is going to give me the ability to do a lot of work with Orville that I haven't been able to do since Orville was my daily driver and I couldn't really get in there and get done what I wanted to do. List to come soon with newer pictures.

So I've found that there is no water or moisture in the trunk, but I found some on driver's floor.. and not just some dampness, but a fairly soaked carpet. It wasn't wet like that a couple weeks ago, but we just had a long bit of rain.

anyway, so i'm searching around the car for other leaks and to check the seals and all that around the doors and found a trail of ants.



All those little white things on the right side of the picture are the eggs or food or w/e but the ants were carrying them all over. the trail was moving down the driver's side of the windshield under that rubber on the edge.

The car sat for a few weeks in a driveway and i think they must've infested the car then.

What is the best way to get rid of them without hurting any parts of the car? I don't want to spray insecticide if it's going to degrade any of the rubber or anything.
