    Sub-to-Dub's 2017 GTI Sport

    @swcrow I hesitate to thread-jack here. But, after ensuring that the OP's name is not also Scott, :ROFLMAO: I'll answer your question. I'm not sure what you know about my car's progress. I went from stock to Baun's standard (original?) Less Agressive exhaust. Later, I tested his very first...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    HAHA! Richmond seems to be the way out of here! I'll be passing through again on September 10th as I continue to Louisa for some ham radio stuff.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I took an 1100-mile road trip over a long weekend... Tail of the Dragon... Fontana Dam... Eurofest Maggie Valley, NC... The forecast called for thunderstorms over the weekend, but it was beautiful the entire time, perhaps even a bit on the warm side. I even got my first...

    Helix harness part #?

    I just looked at that Aliexpress link because someone sent me an e-mail about this same topic. The link is dead already. Companies in there pop-up and dry-up faster than a link can be useful.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Hello, I took mine on a road trip to the mountains in West Virginia and participated in a ham radio activity called Parks on the Air. Some of the parks are slightly remote. Two of the double-track roads denied my passage... "You shall not pass!" Just about anything larger would have...

    Creaking While Steering

    Thanks for sharing that video! I've known about the presence of strut mount/bearings (vice just "mounts") for over 20 years, but didn't truly understand what they where doing until I saw this. I appreciate the education.

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    It depends... If you're already coming here to see Jamestown or Yorktown, then sure, take a drive. But this road is not some twisty joyride type of road that's worth a visit just for the drive. I drive it almost every day because it's close by and relatively peaceful unless an aggressive...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    HAHA! These comments just get better and better! Thanks for the laughs! Ironically, I was legally parked along the Colonial National Historic Parkway the day after my Starbucks incident and was approached by a passing Park Ranger. He stopped, no lights or anything, just to see what I was...

    Sub-to-Dub's 2017 GTI Sport

    Hello, Not sure if you're looking for the full felt cover or just something to cover the top. I went with this knock-off from AliExpress: Ignore the circuit breaker and you'll get the idea. It snaps on top and is a perfect fit for an H6 battery. I'm not fond of AliExpress, but this is a...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    HAHA! That's all funny stuff! :ROFLMAO: That looks really good! However, I already have two 4-port USB hubs connected that barely support what I have going on as it is. They're somewhat visible in this photo... I'll take better photos when I've finished a few details. I'll consider the...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    I finished the "front end" of my FT-857D installation. Here's a "kitchen sink" photo with almost everything: This photo shows an additional monitor and my "dual-FT8" setup. I still need to find a home for my antenna rotator controller. I still have plenty of time before September's VHF contest.

    Creaking doors? Mystery solved

    My door creaking turned out to be the need to tighten this M10 triple square door stop bolt... A little thread lock will keep it snug. I've never lubricated or treated my door seals in five years and 160,000+ miles. Tightening this bolt solved everything. YMMV. Good Luck!

    R2D2

    AH, after reading "R2D2," I thought it might have bright blue hashed stripes, just like R2D2. A goal, I guess! ;) Nice ride!

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    HAHA! Thanks! I'm not a MARS operator... just a general ol' ham. ;) Funny, but almost accurate. I have more coming. It's about to get nuts on my rooftop. :oops: I'll invite them to orbit and watch the drama from an entertaining distance. :coffee: <<< No popcorn emoji; so, this will have to...
