      Okay, I need everyone who wants turn signals for their Mk1 (that would be anyone who wants turn signals regardless of if you have contacted me before in amber, clear, smoked, or custom color) to do a coupla things for me (please):
      1. Read my new and improved Turn Signal Sales page
      Turn Signals For Sale!!!! - READ ME
      Why should you read it? 'cause if you want turn signals....you gotta do it. Plus it has any and all relevant info and because I spent a lot of time making it. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      2. Fill out Turn Signal Order Form page
      This is located at the bottom of the Turn Signal Sales page. I am not providing a direct link to it, because I want people to read the page.
      Why should you submit this? 'cause if you don't you won't get turn signals...ever!!! No Turn Signals for You!!

      3. Post to this topic
      Why should you post? 'cause it will keep this topic on top of the list which will give people who don't read Vortex every day an opportunity to see this post. You wouldn't want your fellow Scirocco Enthusiasts to miss out, would you?
      Plus it brings me great joy to see "VWvortex Forums Notification" in my inbox...no, I do not have a life - can't you tell? I have spent my weekend working on my webpage, this project, and trying very hard not to scratch my new tattoo... So do you really want to deprive me of this happiness?
      What should you post? Comments...aknowledge that you submitted the form....say Hi to me, um....eh...whatever works....

      4. Wait patiently for me to contact you with a total at which point in time you will need to decide how you want to pay and ship the signals
      Why should you do this? Because you really don't have much choice....do you?

      -- This is REALLY the last time you should have to tell me what you want.....(I can come close to promising this.....heh) So all the more reason to submit this to me.....

      ** ALSO I AM ABOUT TO POST FOR INPUT ON THE SMOKED LENS -- I HAVE AN EXAMPLE NOW TO SHOW PEOPLE
      ** THE SHOP CAME UP WITH A POSSIBLE SOLUTION REGARDING THE BONDING -- WILL BE POSTING REGARDING THIS VERY, VERY, VERY SOON -- momentarily even....

      Bump for some great turnsignals! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Too bad I don't have a MK I anymore.

      I'm interested in the smoked.
      It'll be a few months till I can pick them up.
      Are you planning on doing any early Mk1 signals? I'm not sure if I'll be using the wrap around style, or the older style. Depends on which fenders I put on the car.
      Thanx.

      HEY FALCOR!!!!!
      How are things?
      All the people over here in the US and abroad have not been very GOOD about ORDERING TURN SIGNALS. It appears that only 6 people still want turn signals. DAMN SHAME!!!! Because at one point in time lots of people wanted 'em. Perhaps this project has simply taken too long....
      Hey Mats, if you still want a set - can you fill out an order form please? Maybe if you do and people see you post that you did, then other people will figure out that they need to order their signals with me on this form even if they already emailed me in the past..........
      How's your Scirocco comin along? Updated your webpage yet?

      Thank you for your order Mark! You will most definitely be getting a pair of turn signals headed your way.
      (LOVE your ever-changing signature there Mark......it always makes me crack up!! )
      I don't know what everyone's problem is.....
      But it makes me very sad, distraught, upset, and generally disgruntled. And that is not a good position to be in.... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      Oh well.....nothing I can do about it I suppose......

      My problem at the moment is lack $$$... As you might have guessed I've put some serious money and time into the car already. Time I have lots of but the cash is alittle more rare. Especially as I had to get 4 new tires for my Peugeot 206 daily driver car since someone had spread out small metal filings all over the read that lead to four destroyed tires. I'm doing my best to spread the word here in Sweden though.
      Ps. New pictures will be up on my website in about a week and half.

      Kristen I am down for at least one set.. in fact, my original order of smoked/backed/bonded you can double but make the second set amber in lieu of smoked.
      I am always glad to support people who support Mk1 Sciroccos.

      First, I need to caution everyone that I cannot provide everyone with discounted sets since I only have a limited number. And I hope to not get any more...
      Basically, these are sets that the shop thought was acceptable, I however did not....in other words....hmmm.....they have imperfections here and there....but not everywhere.....
      But since they are limited in supply, I have set up a rigorous method to use for selecting who gets a set:
      I ask some arbitrary questions like:
      Is your car stock? What is your financial situation? Are you a nice guy....or mean? Have you read Shocky Jr.'s Restoration and Upgrade Adventure Chronicles? Do you like Shocky Jr.? Do you prefer function over fashion? Have you seen my Scirocco Tattoo? Did you like it?

      Then, depending on your answers to those questions, I determine whether or not you are suitable for a discount set.
      You can check out the page I just whipped up for more info:

      k, thanks Paul!! But can you please submit a second order form for that? You don't need to include your address...just your name and then the options....
      Thanks!

      Regarding bonding issues, Kirsten wasn't too sure about the bonding on my set. I've now covered about 500 miles at average speeds of 90mph+, in hot sun and cold rain and they are still A1.
