      Ralphie, a dead spot would simply make it not start at all, at least until you whacked it with a hammer. Once the starter starts spinning, the dead spot won't do anything. My wagon has a similar...

      Very nice indeed - that's all rare stuff. I have a couple of the switches, one set of the lights, and the little 'scoop' that goes on the fresh air inlet.

      I've successfully dealt with brazilianvw a couple of times. Just have to keep in mind that everything from there takes bloody forever - I think my sport springs took 2 months IIRC.

      That looks like the dealer-available Autobahn rear spoiler, and the rear window louvers were also an Autobahn item. The foglights were also available from Autobahn - I have a kit in my garage that I...
