The VW community is the only group of enthusiasts around that share a genuine desire to be connected and express their enthusiasm with complete strangers who share nothing more then a common passion for our cars.
that looks good.

All the wheel gap in this thread scares me
you own a VW and nothing has ever broke???? WHAT!
One I pulled:
Gave her a bath for the first time after she sat for 2yrs. It took 3hrs 2 rags and a lot of water. The soap suds were a grayish green when I was done. Drove her home and realized my alternater needs to be replaced. Still need to give her another light wash so I can wax her (ran out of time). Damn yellow pollen. That **** gets everywhere and didn't want to come off. It had started growing.
Tried to lube up my left rear regulator & even after I dumped a bunch of HHS in it, it still had this gawd-awful squeek goin' on. Time to start looking into a replacement. Have to check my parts car, then; who knows.
replaced radiator, replaced crackpipe, housing (all the plastics), thermostat (for the stock 87), cleaned and painted fan shroud and replaced the fans, flushed system. removed all the ac junk, including ac condenser (needed to mod radiator to sit properly).

Not today (more like last week actually) but I grabbed a fairly new main pump, pre-pump & injectors for the cool sum of $40.00. I love finding the packaging for parts in the trunk of a car at the local Pick-n-Pull. Even better was the fact that the main pump was sold by my store about a year ago. Just need to get off my butt & get it all installed.
Finished rebuilding the top half of the motor a few weeks ago, got it in the car and drove it for about five days before I got the infamous "tapping"! Thought it was the lifters so pulled the intake and valve cover and found a few loose cam retainer nuts. Guess that wasn't my problem, because after a nice little autobahn run, it got a lot worse. Guess I will be looking at rod/crank bearings.
Anyway, today I towed it from my buddies house to my work. Feel better about it sitting on base while I wait on parts from the states!
This is definetely a love/hate relationship!
Drive that **** like you stole it!!
