      You would have had the oldest car there, had you gone. Mine was the oldest out there tonight, and the only Scirocco. Mostly mkV cars, with some older cars mixed in. It was pretty cool, despite me (unintentionally) breaking up the caravan by taking the back roads to bypass traffic on the highway. Not everyone pulled off the highway at the same time but we all got there eventually.

      Darn, we'll have to meet up some other time. We're still doing the Tuesday meets near Palo Alto. And we've started a new thing meeting up in Milpitas on Fridays late at night. We get to see all the street racers and drift rats.

      Changed my backside engine mount and painted my new brake drums in LC6V (Car color).

      Did a special tool for mounting the wheel bearing caps without dents.

      Then found out not all parts I ordered where in the package...frustrated quitting was the result.

      Now I have to write with my dealer...hope to get him redirecting the missing parts.

      Installed a knock sensor and put verything back together. Didn't get it started on the 3 cranks my battery gave me, but came real close. I'll look over everything tomorrow, charge the battery and try again.

      Replaced the breather hose. For the first time, it looked easy and turned out to actually be easy. Also ordered the last existing new pair of license plate light cover lenses in the country(according to Jim in VW parts dept)

      Paid a whopping $280 to have the flex pipe replaced in the exhaust. Pricey but sounds so sweet now.

      Took the speedo cable off and poured a couple of ounces of oil inside the cable...no more ticking when driving and the needle has stopped bouncing.

      I just got home from driving it to my work earlier this afternoon, where I put it up on a lift and sprayed the exhaust manifold nuts. I'm letting it sit overnight.

      Tomorrow morning I will respray before attempting to remove and do the 4-2-1 swap. I will have to remove the wheel, CV axle, and 4-point stressbar anyway; so that will give it some more time to soak. The best thing is, my work is at a VW dealership so if the sh*t hits the fan and I break a stud in the head or anything, the car is already in the shop!

      (but I'm crossing all fingers and toes that nothing bad will happen)

      So, follow up post from above^
      Just got home from doing the swap at my work. No exhaust leaks, and it feels like it pulls a little harder, expecially abouve 4k. I still have to install Neuspeed TB and I'm sure that will help things more.

      As far as the fasteners go, I got really lucky. Seven of the manifold nuts came out no problemo, and the last one pulled the stud out. All I had to do was break them loose and I could do the rest with my fingers. See the second pic below, the stud was the upper one third from left.




      One thing I did find...my driver's side sway bar bracket is broken. And they are obsolete now, too. So I'll have to track one of those down. I still bolted the bar back in but won't take corners super crazy hard until I get that repaired:

      Moogie (Mk1Autohaus on eBay) has them still. linky

      Pro tip:
      any time you're looking for an "obsolete" part: Check Moogie, as well as Potters (Parts4VWs.com)
      If one doesn't have it, the other might.

      p.s.:
      Moogie does "combined shipping", too. Need a bunch of crap from him?
      Just hit 'buy now.' Don't pay yet - wait for him to send you an invoice.

      Nice looking car, Tobias

      Today, I fixed my broken front sway bar mount bracket. I replaced it with a spare I forgot I had, also went to the hardware store to get new fasteners for both brackets. That's all I did today.

      Today I removed both door panels from my car. I'm going to drop them off at an automotive trim&upholstery shop tomorrow and see what they can do. Both need new fabric (and I can't figure the corners out) and some repair. Hopefully the professionals can do something I can't...

      Actually did this on Saturday but installed my new passenger axle and K-bar. Unforunately there is something making noise now and at first I thought it was something wrong with the axle but after having a look at my friends car it seems like my motor/trans are closer to the K-bar than his and might be rubbing under load. Gonna pull it back off tomorrow and see if that fixes it. Which then means I probably need motor mounts.

      Y'all have done more than I have lately...

      You'd think that, in almost 5 months of dead-trans downtime, I'd find the time to fix some of her small problems.
      Alas, no.... the most I've done is to pull the cover off for the occasional battery charge (which I did over the weekend.)

      Cold-start circuit? Still f'ed up. Rattle from somewhere in the dash? Still haven't looked into that.
      3-gauge set? Still in the box they came in. Cluster I picked up at Cincy? Still sitting on the passenger's floor.

      Bah, I haven't done nearly as much as I expected I would have by this point in time. I had a nice list of things to do before Bonnelli but haven't done jack sh*t...I keep getting distracted by other little things, instead.

      This happened yesterday morning on my way to work, weird thing is that the mileage was at 99,999 as it was parked in my driveway from the night before. So I drove the first mile yesterday morning then took a pic:

      Nothing really to the car, other than blew the circuit to the dash lights

      But I got my garage cleared out today!


      Oh! And I also found a stray light behind my dash and couldn't for the life of me find where it went, but then I remembered one of the po's cut a hole in the little storage area on the center console, sooo...

      I thought bout mine. Half a year till i can drive her *sigh
      You might have sold it to one of the po's haha. Did the one you sell have a bunch of holes put in the top? Cause I'm not sure why mine has them.. And I love the light! It seems factory, the light is in line with the cigarette lighter and it looks very very well done.. Has a ground and everything, makes me wonder what it originally went to..

      Probably from where the VW logo is now. There should have been a clock there before. Kinda want a light like that now. The Scirocco is so dark inside at night.

      That's what I though too, but I checked just to see (and ended up breaken the gauge cluster clips ) and the wire was still there, then it dawned on my that the light is still in my clock.

      I'm happy with my mystery light haha, it lightens up the car nicely at night.

      I bought 2 new empi axles and I removed both old ones
      I put on one side, Gordy did the other.

      Then we installed a new windshield I bought and had in his barn for a year
      I used Hal's idea of car polish in the channel and seal, windshield slid in on second try,
      I think it took a miracle 30-45 minutes.

      Windshield and hooks and hood were destroyed. From a sheared hood latch, I dont trust the stock one anymore, so I use hood pins. Maybe sporty/ghetto/ Rice, but I'm not going through all that again !
