Brendan - That car had grounding issues when I had it. It might seem pretty basic, but double check all of your ground wires before you go too deep into trying to start it. After that, I have no clue, lol.
Well, a new maroon mk2 will be gracing the driveway this evening. Picking it up at 5, and going to take a drive with Beth to see how it does. I will post pics tomorrow.
I was just thinking that all my house needed was just one more maroon Volkswagen .
^^^Yep, 16V GTI. It is a 1989, which makes it kind of a funny year with the small bumpers, but big doors. Once 1990-1992 hit, big bumpers were all the rage. Check the car out here, and tell your friends. I need to move some product.
Never intended to keep it, I bought it because it was a good deal. If it doesn't sell right away, then I will play with it, otherwise I am wanting to get this isht out of my driveway!
Yeah, I like it a lot. Wish it were white, lol. Lincoln, if you know anyone looking for a decent running 16v car, tell them to check it out. I will consider reasonable offers for sure !
Kevin and I got the vr6 motor out of the passat tonight. I started to dissassemble it and I found a funny thing...the motor is not original. Early vr6 motors had a double upper chain, this is a single chain motor...doesn't change plans much, but it is annoying because now I can't do the chains till next week when I can get the kit swapped at IE.
I am buying paint for beth's car tomorrow. If it will stay dry for a few days then I'll be all set to paint .
So we may or may not of had a little bit of trouble in the beginning..
But Look it's out!!
We looked for a place to put it then we settled on the floor between the rest of his motors
Ps. Jason I like your a4

Speak of the devil Tyler! I just came back from Ogden Auto Paint. I have evough materials to prime most of the car, and the engine bay. I also bought a single stage paint for the engine bay and door jambs. The car will be LB9A...otherwise known as Candy White from the mk5 line of Cars. I'm pretty excited to start!!
