    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    Since the car is "nice" now, I will mostly just drive it, but I will get the lights cleaned up soon. However, my mind is on the leak & I have the valvecover gasket, but not sure why I'm a little intimidated by it... Probably need to pressure wash the engine bay. I think this leak showed up after...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    Well, none of the attempts to make the wheels nice was working. Reminded myself it was a sh!tbox and deserved to be treated like a shi!box. Primer spray bombed, followed by Rustoleum Metallic Silver spray bombed. Once that was dry, I went and installed the BRZ take-off 215/40 Michelin Pilot...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    Alright. "done" again... just need to get the wheels/tires on it and replace the last set of bushings I got. Then its just polishing this turd and seeing if it turns into a diamond (it wont) Working from home today meant a double shift. Hmmm, I dont think they are supposed to split like that...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    I will give you an update once I replace the driveside axle... :ROFLMAO: it decided it wanted to be replaced after I finished the suspension install. In more "exciting" news, I have also been prepping the wheels. In a fun turn of events, these "BBS" wheels turned out to be 3 different wheels...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    That's basically one of the last "to-do" items to really call it "done." I have the kit to do it, but between the lights, the wheels/tires and getting that last little shifter bushing installed Im done and can focus on maintaining the motor. I cleaned a few lbs' worth of sludge and dirt off the...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    Half Baked projects everywhere... without removing the axle and without a strut spreader tool I’ve been able to remove one strut, but the other won’t budge... really wish I had these stupid specialized tools. Had to go out and buy a triple star 3/8” sockets because the biggest one I had was a...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    is that a hack to change the stitching to a different color? Sounds like it will make it look worse, but I’m curious and all ears. I’m back at it again tomorrow night and Friday as I want to finish off the front suspension so I can wrap these initial changes and get the wheels on it

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    Alright, so after installing the RCD head unit I was motivated to get the diesel geek shifter rebuild as my shifter has been pretty vague. A bunch of before and afters incoming: Old bushings New bushings installed And finally the “super slider” which was the easiest install, but exposed...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    RCD330 arrived and I have to say I’m quite impressed. The harness included an antenna connection and a wire for what seems to be a 12v supply, but I, not sure for what exactly ... no instructions but it was relatively a no-brainer install otherwise. Bluetooth connected relatively easily and I...

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    I didnt disconnect the battery, neither when I installed it nor when I removed it a few days later ... not too concerned, but curious how long after you had the surprise on the freeway? I might actually disconnect it when the RCD300 arrives

    My Half Baked 2006 Jetta TDI

    My buddy just told me he has a spring compressor he will let me borrow (not the autozone ones that will try to kill you), and I figured the spindle/strut separator could be solved with a BFH and lots of cursing... just curious if I actually need to remove the axles or not. Time is of the...
