      I know I'm copying the mk2 forum but it's a good thread damnit!
      Post what you did to your scirocco today!
      I used it to hawl some tires to the gas station for air.

      I raced....blah blah blah....


      Street racing is frowned upon here and will get a thread locked. Sorry.
      I bead blasted two hub carriers and one caliper and generally continued the total re-do of my front end. New control arms, bushings, ball joints, caliper rebuild kits, wheel bearings, lowering spring caps, H&R Sports and Bilstein struts sit waiting nearby.
      Next comes painting and assembling the calipers, hub carriers, brackets, etc., pressing new bearings into the hub carriers and putting everything together.
      I'm hoping for some good painting weather (dry, 70's) so I can get this done.
      ...and a good rain to get this residual salt off of the roads.

      I noticed something yellow was leaking from a pipe in the ceiling of my garage, and dripping onto the roof of the rocco.
      also tore out the rear spoiler, tested what a mk1 small front lip would look like on it, and ordered new suspension.

      Went to change the transfer pump. Was unable to do this, because the one I have on the shelf is not the right one for the job.
      So what I actually did was order new parts for her (what else?).

      Painted the engine bay and prepped areas that are about to be touched with my new mig. Pretty light rocco day overall.

      Just think like me and my friend do, when people ask why you're spending so much money.. tell them "I'm stimulating the economy."

      I replaced my windshield wiper motor for a MK3 version. It was a lot easier then I expected and it works great
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3465098
      I followed these instructions, but I didnt need to solder or change the backing plate. I simply screwed the mk3 motor on the scirocco assembly and it was done.

      I ran power and ground wires for Megasquirt directly to the rear mounted battery, added a dedicated ground wire to the alternator and changed out the voltage regulator and suppressor.
      That apparently cleaned up the spikey voltage output enough that MS no longer cuts out or resets.
      So I can drive the car for the first time in a couple months.
