      I bought a set of Yokohama light truck tires for my last EuroVan MV, 235/50/16. No rub at stock ride height.

      The trans is on order from German Transaxle, and I have an appointment scheduled with a local VW specialist. Until then, I am only going to work on tasks that don't involve much of a cash outlay.

      GoWesty's warranty is indeed 48mo/48k miles vs. 24/24k from German Transaxle. However, what I have heard from shops who work with GW is that their warranty provider is a bear to work with.

      When asked yesterday, a representative at German Transaxle told me that they are "very familiar with the GoWesty" transaxle kit and spoke in coded language that they are indeed GoWesty's vendor.

      Great, thanks for the input. I was wondering if the floor blower actually blowed cooled air. The hardtop MVs have a separate, rear AC unit that was pretty effective in cooling the passenger...

      Yes! ^ Dummy me didn't realize that the rear blower wasn't working as I hadn't hit the switch on the dash:

      Well, the blower is not blowing, so I need to find out what's going on there. Alongside the fan control is a temp regulator. Maybe I'll try to crack that nut later this week.

      Looks great, Cole. You're providing me with a lot of inspiration for my project.

      On a side note, I'll be hitting you up with some pop-top fabric questions soon, as mine has tears.
