      Well, I definitely don't want a rabbit front end... I was gonna go with the euro front end but I changed my mind thanks to the PO of the car. Dual square lights are staying in!

      Forget fiberglass. Get a full sheet of Particle board and make a box and seal it with silicone or epoxy. Very simple and a good project for someone with not much experience.

    9. Heat blows hot, but temp gauge stays down?

      Could be the door sensor. This happened to me once. Later I ended up bypassing the alarm module.
    14. Has anyone tried using a 1.8 head from an Audi?...

      Has anyone tried using a 1.8 head from an Audi? Or using the whole engine? I thought the Audi 1.8s had more power and better flowing heads and vws were slightly down tuned?

      Make sure when you turn the key on, The lights in the gauge cluster light up. The major one is the Check Engine Light. Some people will pull the bulb to cover up any problems.
