      pretty insane that the concrete has been polished by foot traffic. Talk about OLD.

      It's to bad all dealerships can't be like that. But alas...the general public wouldn't want it anyway. John Q. Public who drives a VW and comes in for a part would not like to see a dungeon

      Matt,, Ahoy!!! Looks good man, saw the pics on fb too,

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrbY4hsNh64 Here is a clip of Bill Murray, sailing in quite possibly my favorite movie ever!...What about Bob? EPIC classic.

      Jason, R2, Steve, Art crew.. I applied for the MT Job.. It re-posted TODAY!! The last guy who applied had failed pt tests, high year tenure (11yr SrA) and does not have enough time to palace chase. Looks like it was meant to be!

      SOoooo hopefully we can hang out on our UTA weekends together Say a prayer for expedited palace chase paper work acceptance!!!

      Nate - I talked to Dale about Col hiring the other guy. I don't know WTF happened there but Dale was PISSED.

      PLEASE make sure you attach ALL necessary documents and have a MASSIVE resume. I have a cover letter if you need it. I will talk to Col. Batson and Chief Cornelia this week and put in a good word. I'll talk to my boy Jesus too

      In other news...I've bought a Rabbit caddy diesel to flip:

      I was going to lower it but I'm going to do a mechanical restore, get her road worthy, and then put it on the market.

      Jas,

      Yeah last dude thought he could secure the job, then have reserves wait on him for 6-8 months after he got accepted (thats how long hes has left till high year tenure) to palace chase. Plus he is only a 5lvl.
      Already submitted resume, put all of my awards, education, pme, 7lvl stuff etc. on it. Spent the better part of Saturday on it man!!
      Just need to get to work today and read up more on the afi's/start filling out paper work. I have a few more phone a friend from my first sergeant/old neighbor back at Moody before he retires in Oct. to expedite my palace chase paper work.

      Always appreciate the prayers/good word, really it means a lot.

      Congrats on the find btw!!!

      Nate - got your IM, sent you an email. Disregard what I said about getting with a recruiter because it seems you are WELL ahead of the game!

      The truck is awesome. SO hard to find unmolested mk1 rabbit truck diesels anymore. I've flipped a lot of cars in the past 5 years but this one is pretty sweet because of it's rarity. I can't wait till it's road worthy!

      Good luck Nate! Hopefully you get the job!

      And Jason! You did some work for that truck! Makes me happy seeing it start right up for you though! German engineering at its finest!

      In MKV news I should be buying some parts for it Wednesday! Axles right after that! Hope all is well with everybody!

      Nate - I talked to Col. Batson the other day about you. He said you didn't make the roster on the last posting. Making the roster is CRITICAL. He can't pick you if you are not there.

      Furthermore I noticed you had WG10 on your resume. It's an 11 position. And you had 50hrs...we work 40 bro

      Anyway, I don't know the closing date but you can always resubmit a resume. They don't start looking at candidates until it closes. Put EVERYTHING you can think of in there. Transcripts, etc. The bigger the resume the better. Even if it's not legible...toss it in there.

      When you applied last time did you get a letter saying that you were in fact eligible?

      EDIT: Updated resume, added loads of stuff from tba that I have actually done.
      Jason, I did not make the last roster, as I never posted my resume. I was reading the AFI on seperationg and SRB's. Which I fall under. Since then I have found an AFI that says I keep what I've been paid, and since I get the bonus in June and the job starts in Jan, Im good to go. Otherwise I would have had to pay that year back. Worse case now my A.D. commander can "force" me to serve an extra year of commitment to the reserves, oh darn!

      I did not have a resume in order and had not really been praying about it. Basically, I was unsure of what to do with myself. I have been this time, and really have a peace about it. Plus a few other things, all good I assure you.

      I was a bit confused on the resume, and I didn't want to make it seem like I wouldn't put in more hours if I have to, I work minimal 55-60 hrs a week active duty as it is right now! (645am-445pm) I can see you chuckling at me bro

      And heard from DD, this is the LAST go around for this posting before it goes bye bye. I will know if they selected me tomorrow, and already have in-serivce recruiter's info to start the paper work process. I really hope they are willing to deal with me via e-mail right now until I get back if I do get it.

      Long response I know, but its all truf!

      And may be parting the Deez. Got a good friend up in Ohio looking for a deez swap into his mk1 scirocco.

      If you kill a damn COMPLETE running early westy for the motor...you are NOT a VW person!!!

      If he needs a swap...just find any old diesel. A 1.5D is on the bottom anyway. Hell I have a 1.5D sitting in my garage. It's not like other swaps where you need all the electronics/associated wires. He just needs a motor. Everything else like the exhaust, trans, etc can be reused.

      Anyway, they will DEFINITELY work with you over email. Think about it like this...they are not in a hurry to fill this. What they have to do is make it legal and correct. If you make the roster and Dale, Col. Batson, and Chief C sign off on ya...it's just a matter of time. They can push your start back while you work out your separation.

      So, reply to reply

      I have found and am sold on a 2007 gti. Plus I can pick it up cash. 50k mi, 6spd, all the interrior goodies/radio controls etc on the wheel and 17" hufs. 100% stock, dealer maintained, oil changed every 5k, new coil packs at 37k (car fax rules ftw) has a nice little hide away hitch too

      Suggested timing belt replacement, 75k

      07 2.0ts had upgraded d/v, pcv system from earlier oil burning 2.0t. Only drawback is the stupid noise maker pipe, already looking at a delete for that from the A3.. And H20/methanol injection.

      Love the mk6, but its too expensive, they have a crazy timing chain setup and idler shafts which I am not so sold on.... Now I have to find someone to take delivery of the vehicle

      If you read this, or are scheduled to be at 430pm thurs I'm there. I can check the manifest.

      Heck went to go pick up a new guy the other day and ended up helping out some age dude. His shop didn't even show up to pick him up! And our dude failed pt test and didn't make it over...

      If you get in and cannot get a hold of anyone, borrow someones phone and holla..010 8694 3659 cell or 070 7597 0020 room phone, they can get me at work (swings baby)

      Thanks Matt Norf! Ill let yas know the close I get to working everything out. I want to just hop in the car and drive it when I get back.

      P.S. Andrew, get used to 4 turn 4 F-16's every hour until night time

      Got some parts ordered for the GLI today should be here by Friday hopefully. Onto this metallicish noise I'm hearing got it down to either the drive side hub, axle, or the transmission bearing on the driver side. Something along those lines. Really need to buy the manual for this car.

      Nate that's a good looking gti.

      Thanks Sam, and its going to stay STOCK. and stealership oil changes if the price/barrel stays the same.

      Is this the noise you were trying to trouble shoot for a bit now? The O2Q Trans is very similar to an O2m. I have not heard of any premature diff bearing failures in them and know they can handle a lot of abuse even on heavily modded cars.

      Things I may suggest, as I went through a fiasco with trouble shooting popping/ constant rubbing noises in my 24v (o2m 6spd) and it turns out that it was the trans bolt hole in the housing had stripped. Think about it, if the axles are picking up the slack of the rest of the drive train, all kinds of weird noises are going to manifest.

      Matt Norf also encountered this issue of stripped bolt hole. The fix for stripped bolt hole is an M.10x1.25 helicol. Napa sells them.

      If you discover that the bolt/trans are fine, have you attempted changing the fluid? I would suggest trying that first. Anything 75w90 GL 4. NO HIGHER as gl3 and gl5 are not slippery enough/too slippery for vw's aluminum bronze syncros. And 2.45 quarts. I know these things because I change my trans fluid every 20k..just because I DRIVE my cars Either way, keep us posted.

      EDIT: Sam, just read the nosie. I would almost bet its a w/b. Even if you have checked for "play" on a lift/jackstands. Corrado and 24v both made said metallic rubbing noises and turned out it was wheel bearing or combination.

      Also, got a pm from future deez owner confirming wtb.

      Well I did have a quick question for all you guys. In the MKV forums they have stated that the napa/autozone etc parts have failed quickly. Do you guys suggest purchasing these parts like hubs/axles from these places or save up for oem products? And Nate I know you want coilovers for it to drop it a tiny bit and I should have a set for sale soonish! 400 only on for about 4500 miles!
