      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.

      A sloth gets robbed by three turtles. The sloth calls the cops and they ask him "so can you tell us about the robbery?" and the sloth say's "I'm not sure.............It all happened so fast......."

      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.

      raced a VR corrado, for a tie, into fourth b4 we ran out of room
      close races are the best
      it handles so much better with subs in the trunk
      but they'll be coming out before night
      thats a passat synchro in back

      Thanks Rocc__On, thats from 26 years of love and care
      Now that she's a certified beauty queen (PWL 06 & 09), she has developed the expected "high maintenance" personality...
      Demands a heated garage, won't go out in the rain, wants to be waxed often, etc. I am reduced to being her servant.
      Fortunately, she still likes to be driven and I love her

      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?).
