      Auto to 5 speed swap in my calypso wagon = complete! Also swapped out the disgusting grey interior for black after stripping and POR-15ing the floors. I can't wait to drive it again!

      Procedure is the same. Don't freak out about a slightly spongy pedal, our cars don't have super tight brake pedals from the factory.

      If you can, get your paws on a vacuum / pressure bleeder, specially since you're going to do this from a dry master. Bench bleeding is useless, but bleeding the entire system is a pain in the dick.

      BTW I have some female to female SS front lines for sale if you want them. They'll most likely fit your car since they didn't fit mine (cutoff was mid-95 IIRC).

      Steering wheel is meh. The mirror though - I can't live without mine, had it for many years
      on the B3, and when the car was wrecked I put the whole mirrors on my MK2 so still using it now.

      That mirror will do you no good, it is a wide angle/blind spot mirror for the DRIVER side only.

      OIC, would still like to get the link. I'm not German eBay savvy, so I would like the link to see if they have a passenger side.

      I was thinking the same thing. I have those on both sides of my 20th & plan on doing the same thing to my Mk3 when I get the cabby mirrors swapped on.

      Media-blasted and painted most of the syncro rear-end stuff, removed the various brackets from the syncro parts car to transfer to my wagon, ordered a bunch of parts from Volkswagen for the drivetrain rebuild, and starting working on making the rear control arms fully camber/toe adjustable.

      I still need to order the syncro-specific KW V2s... I want this done for WaterWerks on the Bay!

      Thought about finally fixing my cruise control. Then thought about all the vac wiring that's rotting away inside my driver's left fender. Then though about the shaved bay cabrio I want to build in the future.

      **** this, deleting cruise control too.

      Bunch of work on the rear suspension: all new rubber and steel brake lines, new proportioning valve, wheel bearings, rotors, pads, control arm bushings, and rear input and axle shaft seals. Also got parts for the camber/toe adjustment machined and ready to weld on tomorrow.
