      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.

      Well she kinda chuggs a little at full throttle.So I thought it was the cat..So I pulled it off last night. Cleaned it out.It sounds and runs better.
      I was late this morning..And got a 61 in a 45.I guess its running a lot better

      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

      That would be nice.

      I painted a bumper.

      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?).

      I hear ya!

      My mother came up from Portland and my nephiew came down so Trina and I did the host/hostess thing this weekend, not that I mind , but nothing I had planned for the rocco got done, not even a wax or vacum and I'm pretty intense on that stuff.

      Today I'll be working on some of the bathroom remodel.

      Worked last weekend and probably next too and after that Trina's dad is coming in from Chicago for a couple weeks. He's a Harley guy and likes to wrench so hoping we can have some "quality" time together with the Scirocco. Yesss!!!

      Yesterday I stripped the door cards out of my 79 and replaced the rears with the new leather clad ones/ did some general restorative work in the back interior. Front cards needed some holes put in them, so I did that too and did a test fit. Plastic trim will need colour matching, it's a dog's breakfast ranging from beige to black currently. Needs to all be chocolate.

      Edit for ownage, this is not my car, but similar:
