I dreamt several times today of driving it around. Then I remembered that I still have to rewire and install the battery before any of that can happen.
I got mine back from paint today and put it into the garage. Ill start working on it tomorrow. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

I started in on the engine bay. made a "bracket" for my new coolant bottle, and filled in all my unwanted holes
then I sanded. and sanded, and sanded and sanded....
I HATE SANDING!
Locked rodolfo in the garage......For safety.... there will be stranger in the property
installed rear and front polyurethane control arm bushings, took a crack at ignition timing again.. still can't get to the bloody clutch markings, thus making it a more "trial and error" type of deal.. self alignment tomorrow? I hope..
Tires soon.. there's one with wide bands of no rubber left..
I'm basically riding on drag slicks.

After a week of driving to work she got 5 whole gallons of premium.
Patted her on the fender saying the Fiat's not #1. It just gets racing fuel...
Right now? she's up on stands ready for some love tomorrow.
Got the major house projects done.
And while I'm thinking about it.
Happy wife makes for happy life.

^ iz jealous of your pc system. all of my stuff is getting sent out soon.
as for the rocco... picked up one of these bad boys
LC-1 w/ DB gauge
My 1980 Scirocco failed MD inspection mainly due to this:
Its the pipe from the EGR valve to the Exhaust mani. According to the local parts dealer, the pipe is NLA (067-131-635-A).
So I'm on the hunt for a replacement pipe, or a reasonable stand-in.
UPDATE: With a lot of help I was able to locate one.
