      WTB- decent MkII interior light. I can order one from MkI Autohaus, but it won't make it to me before Cincy.
      I have a front and rear valences for MkII Euro 16V body kit and a MkI Zender grill I...

      I also would like to see pics of the carpet, when installed and also your opinion on how well it fits and installs. That is, once you get it and install it. Nice looking car btw.

      Yes, but only learned that very recently. Strange, huh?

      Exactly what Black92EightValve said. They build it up on their intakes, and it's my understanding it comes from oil, though those running catch cans report less of a problem. Connection to CIS? ...

      I think he has been listening to FSI guys, because apparently those things do build up with a lot of carbon. Never checked mine, but probably should some day.

      Dex/Merc is the replacement for Dex II. GM stopped licensing other manufacturers in '06, so they can't use the Dexron name. Dex/Merc is the same as Dexron III, which was a replacement for II.

      I was wondering about that. How's the weather in Wilmington? Is it shorts weather, or still jeans? We're a month behind previous years here in Maine, so it's still light jacket weather most days.

      What he said. Motors have carbon. If you don't want carbon, tear it down, clean it, rebuild it and never start it again. It will stay carbon free.

      Interesting. $10,000 back then means the mechanic was taking her for a hell of a ride, of course. I hope the article exaggerates the price to repair the car too, since a new one was less than $10k,...

      Also, if one isn't firing, you should have a wet spark plug, which will tell you which cylinder. You definitely need to check those wires. They can look good and be bad. Ohm them out, or even in a...

      That will be a sad day when it happens. But I get your point too. It's a lot of work and so many people say they will/want to go, but then so few sign up.

      X2 and definitely not an O2 sensor plug. No, I'm not calling you an idiot either...

      You could go to Cincy and there would be plenty of people there that could tutor you on schematics, electrics and such. Speaking of, are you going Karl?

      Dan, throw the mount in the freezer for a while and then bake the mount at 400 or so for a bit. That should help.

      I also bought a Scirocco (Slegato) from someone on Vancouver Island. The guy went back and forth on selling it and was slowly ruining it. What the hell is with people on Vancouver Island? Must be...

      Wow, converted to dollars that is $672! It would seem to me that a call to GAP or Mk1Autohaus for VW Classic parts tails at $129 each would be a much better deal. :thumbup: They only show right...

      Suggestion- Put the mount in the over, 400 + and insert in the freezer. You may be able to slip it in or at least insert it with minimal effort. I've had good luck this was with bearing races and...

      Thanks Bruno! In Berchtesgaten, they said there wasn't a translation to English. That didn't make sense to me.

      Ok, so I have to ask. I see "Gluck Auf" on one of the ore cars and that was on signs in a salt mine in Berchtesgaden I was at years ago. What does that mean?

      There's always that chance that it lost charge while sitting in storage and had just enough left in it for that one start. Charge it up and just keep an eye on it. But as Hal said, make sure you...
