      Pics of these lights on a B4 are floating around the web. Personally, I think the fitment is pretty bad and I wouldn't bother.

      If it's an interference head, I'd at least check the lash. 10+ years ago I pulled a Schrick 280 and installed a G grind in my built 3A. Common sense told me going to a less radical cam wouldn't...

      It appears that somebody is at "full mast" with anticipation. Keep the pics coming.

      You're overthinking this way too much.

      If you're interested in driving down to slushy NJ, we can fix that dash in an hour or less. Short notice, but I'm free today. I'll PM my phone number.

      Whatwas the reasoning of going with the evap with the built in heater core, if the heat exchanger won't be used? I figure lose that part and get an evap that better fit the existing box and will...

      If you're not looking to remove your supports, brace them to where they need to be and pack the area with short strand filler. Once it cures, they'll be very stable.

      How many layers of CSM did you lay on the rear bulkhead? I never thought of using milkshake to add bulk; any reason you didn't use a heavier cloth or woven roven?

      How tall are you? I'm 5'7" and...

      I had the same issue with the belts stretching too much. I think I went through 2 Continental 10mm belts and got fed up. I ended up going to a Dayco Gold 11.5mm belt and it cured the issue.

      With thin CA, I've noticed that accelerator isn't required. It kicks very quickly by itself.

      This brings up another point worth mentioning. I wear a respirator or work upwind of CA. The fumes...

      That's a new one; I've heard of CA and baking soda, but I'll have to give it a try.

      I'm wondering if it's actually stronger, though. CA is great stuff, but it's brittle and has no real shock...

      $6 shipped sounds too cheap. Are these from SC?

      If you're finding the seal kits, contact the sellers. The mainshaft seal should run about $10-$12.

      I'd buy a Bosch or Zexel. I can post the part...

      If the heater duct is all you'll be repairing, just use standard polyester resin w/o wax.

      Bosch seal kits are pretty easy to find. Have you tried eBay? Iirc, there are only 2 mainshaft seals for the VE pumps and I think your pump uses the smaller of the 2.

      I've never seen that alarm box and the B4 never got the TDI until 96. Being that you're not in the US may explain a few things, but the premise is still the same.

      I was waiting for it... I knew the sound system was inevitable. Surprised to see that you'll be using JL subs; kinda deviates from your typical 100% Alpine MO.
