DIY – Building A-Pillar Tweeter Pods

It’s been a while since my last DIY so I’ve decided to build some a-pillar tweeter pods for my Kicker tweeters.

1. My first step was to get the correct angle. The set of tweeters that I’ve bought came with various fittings making the building process a bit easier.

2. I stuck the fittings to the pillars using hot glue. After the glue has dried I made sure that the angle on both mounts was exactly the same.

3. I proceeded to mix up some body filler and started spreading it all around …

VW love and the Passion

For those of you that have built a car, modified a car, or even just tinkered with one, I think you are going to be able to relate to Joel’s passion. He talks about how a community pulls together to provide advice and how they sometimes even might assist with a couple of spares that they have lying about.

Spring Stance 2012 Edition

After going through one stressful week at work, I’ve decided to make a turn at the annual Spring Stance event. In the past all VAG owners used to take a drive and meet up at a certain spot, chillaxing and sharing ideas with other modfathers and sisters until law enforcement came along and spoiled most of the car culture fun. So, to keep the peace the event organizers decided to host it in a safe environment. This annual event took place at Buren High School in Brooklyn on Saturday 27 …

Cool Runnings – VW Bug Shoot

For some reason you can’t call a VW Bug a student car anymore. Why? Because down here in Cape Town they customize anything that is roadworthy approved or that can drive and spin. Look at Dirkie Binneman’s 1972 VW Beetle. This bug affair dated back into the early 2000’s when he laid his hands on his first “Kewer”. His dream was actually to become a BMX rider but faded after an accident he had at one of the competitions. All thanks Westcliff High school for gaining all his knowledge on …

The Rescue Rhino II Show and Sound

The Rescue Rhino II Show and Sound event was one great event, once again hosted by SSJ Concepts in conjunction with Team Autopunks. As always these guys raised the bar and was setting a good standard on how to host a fundraiser event. We were blessed with some nice summer weather and once again Cape Town petrol heads came out to show support.  The venue of choice was Goodwood Park Primary and with the show there was also a carnival. I must admit that I arrived a little later than …
