      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.

      Ginster, add "Got car admired online by Canucks" to your list. She's such a beauty. I went to work to support mine. That should be enough, right?

      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.

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

      I went with white.

      After:

      I think they should look good with gravel tires on my black Scirocco.

      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!!

      Painted the lower part black:

      No it's not a styling thing... I fixed a bit of rust for the time being and needed to paint it and matching the original color would have been a... so I went the cheap root and got black.

      Why Not cathy?? Its actually pretty easy. I actually welded some tonight after we unloaded to roc off my toter. The fender had come loose on the last excursion and we had a few places that had stress fractures. But thats what happens when you have a toter thats likely older that the classic tow vehicle.

      Well Yesterday... Daun and I finished stripping the wrecked scirocco. I will neither confirm nor deny that a tractor, a sawsall, sledgehammer and a camera were used in that task. Nor will I confirm any vicious rumours that the engine went sledding, my new car needed a jump or finally the car spent most of the day on it's side
      I now am forced to bring forth the Chewbacca defense.
      And Daun can confrim I DO in fact have a lot of junk in my trunk.

      The new tires. BF Goodrich G-Sport Sport. Which were manufactured late 2008.


      Why did I not have this 12 dollars tool before.
      Makes changing tires a breeze.

      I plan to drive my Rocco today [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      A nice day with a nice country drive out to work on a boat. Gotta get the boat done soon as Pike season is almost here and more importantly the start of musky season soon follows.
      No rocco content but if you look close there is a VW in the background:

      checked the brake leak, finally tracked it down, my left caliper is leaking around the e-brake seal. tore up my console to try and fix my LC1 wide band, no luck, I'm still getting a Heater Circuit shorted error.
