      Start the car with *both belts removed*. Don't run it for too long, as you'll have no water pump. But that will allow you to determine whether or not it's the ancillary bits that are causing the...

    14. The "How Did I Get Here?" Chick's Scirocco build thread

      Would you consider shooting the car with clearcoat? It will be 'easy' at this point; just scuff and spray. The car is already apart and the clear will add the durability you need.

      They overtightened the belt, which is very common. The 8V belt should be able to be twisted 1/2 turn at a point halfway between the pulleys.
