      I bought ANOTHER one. 87 5-cyl wagon autotragik. Low miles and NO rust...MA shore and literally no rust. Thank you elderly owners with garages! I'm going to fix it up and sell it off. I didn't want it to get scrapped. Needs some brake work and an interior cleaning. Pics when I pick it up next week.

      Removed the extremely near-mint original door cards form the QSW and swapped in the blacked-out leather cards. Looks killer. Glad the guy backed out on the deal for them.

      I'm thinking I'll dye the seats black along with the headliner and really black it out. I do have the front MK3 Trek heated seats that I'm planning on fitting in there and they're already black also...It's going to be my daily so I guess I'll make it just how I like it, rather than worry about keeping it stock. Plus a warm butt in the Cape Cod winter would be nice.

      Put new rotors and pads up front on the QSW. Bedded them in on the road by my house and they're nice. Mintex red box with some German rotors, nothing special there. Bleeder screws actually turned no problem...amazing.

      Winterized the Q today with some 10w-30, a top-off on the antifreeze, and installed the ski racks. Also installed some studded snows on some steel rims I got for $200. The rims were pretty rusty but I cleaned them up and painted them black and they look great! Just in time for a romp in some pow after the first big snow storm of the season... I can't believe how well she performed. The snow was over a foot deep in spots! Check out my pics...

      You know it man! This truly, whether you knew or not at the time when you built it, is what this car was built for. The conditions that day were perfect... 8 to 12" of fresh pow on top of crust and frozen dirt that gave me just enough traction to rally... rear locker engaged the whole time! Didn't get stuck once. Went back up the next day with my gf and broke trail a ways further up the road passed where the last person had only been up on a 4-wheeler. So much fun! QSWs RULE! Love this car... hope it runs forever.

      Towed the new TD sedan back from NH with my buddy's TDI big turbo Jetta. Awesome.

      Hi I have been trying to find the fuel injection return check valve. Anybody know where it is? Thanks

      Finally I can contribute to this thread: My QSW has been neglected for two years now, the engine is out and I have another to install but I wanted to take care of the rust in the engine bay.

      Unfortunately it would take forever to get the job done correctly and I don't have that kind of time on my hands these days (too many things!!!). So I sanded the rust tonight and got it ready to paint tomorrow with some rust encapsulator from eastwood. If I can just stop the rust from spreading and get the new engine in soon I'll be a happy man. I went whole hog on my scirocco engine bay and it took a loooong time.

      If you have room to bring it to NH with you, I think I can do it. Let me check this weekend if it'll work. I'm not sure I want to strap it to the roof rack as it may warp form the wind...

      So I didnt do it today, but over the last couple weeks:

      Started rusty and tan in color
      Sanded it down
      Painted it flat black in bed liner
      Heat gun melted the flares to re-black
      Dropped it about 2inchs
      Threw on some snowflakes
      Smoked the front corners
      Partially smoked the tails
      Little tune up- plugs/wires

      And back on the road as a daily... tint coming next week.

      The Mexicans who assembled my Wolfsburg like German food... good enough for me!

      when i painted my mk3 bedliner a few years back, i used to armor-all it everyother week or so. it made the finish textured yet kinda shiny.
