      Started refinishing up a set of rims for some new tires. Got one painted today, on the left.

      what rims are these, i found like three pairs of these at picnpull the other day and thought they'd look good on my golf, or as some temps while i get my teardrops refinished.

      Rarely as in never.

      Your odometer will probably stop working before you drive 7500 miles anyway.

      According to the odometer, my 87 has been driven 1 mile since I've owned it.

      my odometer says 10 since i bought it

      They were from various Audis made in the 80s. They are called Ronal R8. I also have heard that the Audi ones were also made in a 4x108 lug pattern for the 14" rim so if you pick some up just check the lug pattern and make sure they are 4x100.

      4 X 108's were used on the Quattro's and had center caps. Wish I had some of the 5 lug UR Quattro ones in 15".

      Started by removing the fuel gauge from the A-pillar. Previous had it setup running live fuel inside the cabin of the car. Probably not the safest setup, so I removed it and will be adding a small water filled gauge in the bay.

      With the fuel gauge gone, it left a spot open for the new LC-1 Wideband! I ran the wiring for the o2 sensor and started ripping out the center console etc. I've always had issues with the new stereo fitting correctly so with the console out I started rerouting all of the RCA cables, etc. The center console also houses 3 gauges that I don't have hooked up currently (voltage, oil pressure, coolant temp). Coolant temp is stock so all of the wiring is routed for it. The voltage should be easy enough to tap in. As for the oil pressure I picked up a sender late last fall. Managed to find an un-used (from the factory) slot on top of the oil filter housing for the sender. Got it installed and it looks clean as hell.

      The interior is still torn apart. Still have to run the rest of the wiring for all of the gauges. Hope to have everything installed and running correctly by this weekend.

      no photos.. use your imaguation

      I went hunting for hatch leaks, found 4 and fixed 3. Along the way, I installed new (to me) tail lights (see below) and did some prep work for a new coat of paint.

      Actually, I did this yesterday...but I'm on lunch now, so I have time to web crawl.

      Yeah, I'll probably take it. My paint has blisters all over, I don't know if I should rolling resto while the Rabbit is getting full resto. Or just buff it, 'cause I don't want primer all over it while I daily it. I think it'll live.

      not today...but in the last week:

      - replaced dist cap, rotor and s/plugs w/ new bosch components.
      - replaced f/filter w/ new bosch unit.
      - replaced the little (brittle) plastic link between the door lock pull rod and the d/s door latch, so as to regain proper function.

      oh...and i washed it :


      i good vibes... and sciroccos.

      Removed front leather seats and cleaned tracks. Then rebuilt the drivers seat with the upper of a passenger seat I bought and transferred all the bottom leather pieces onto the base. Really not hard to do and the seat looks new.

      Did a couple of other small things as well.

      Plus installed the 17x8.5 MAEs on the Passat.

      I actually sat in mine today!! Had to of course do the obligatory VROOM, VROOM sounds, shifting and steering. Then the wheel locked on me as I didn't have the key with me, and my fun was over.

      On my way home from doing that, I decided TOMORROW it comes home for me to wire the battery and get rear brakes on it!!
