    Thread: What did you do to your Scirocco today?

    1. 08-21-2012 12:11 AM #3116
      Besides contemplating gathering together my Cup Kit in one place, I gazed longingly at my two 'pressed from the Original Molds' Potter-People Issued Airdams...

      Uh oh, unintended Page Ownage.(wait one...)



      OK, That is a 'crappy cell phone pic' of my Grandparents' China cabinet, sans old rolled glass cause my Brother broke it, w/ nick-nacks and brick-a-brack in it including a topographical map of San Francisco in 3D, crafted by hand by my parents (glued together one by one from a stack of maps gathered from the US Geological Survey and cut out along the topo lines...) <--- _this_ is the kind of thing folks did when TV was CRT and Black and White, let alone prior to the Internet.

      Also is a few photos you cant see from where you are due to low rez, sorry 'bout that, and some laboratory flasks on top because thats how I roll, Muhahahha-

      but (Scirocco Content ahead!) There be two stacked air dams hanging on the Right Hand Side. (And as we all know, Pass the Dutchy on the Left Hand Side...).

      I scrape about a pound or two of carbon build up from piston heads and valves until 3 am last night.
      It was a 1.6 and now it is a 1.8 again !

      So, a supposed-to-be-easy-and-simple-first-time-ever-head-gasket-job is getting unexpectedly more elaborate, but worthwhile in a scholastic point of view.

      The rear quarter panel scuff moldings were starting to come off the car. I removed them, cleaned up the areas, attached 3M double-sided tape, trimmed, re-attached, and then carefully trimmed any more excess. Good to go now!

      usually it is the reverse that happens, lol

      Today I put in new floor mats, actually black mats this time to match the rest of the interior. I had blue ones in there and they don't match anything on the car, haha.
      Also installed my upper timing belt cover, vacuumed the interior, and bought a roll of carpet material to re-do the hood insulation (but didn't get around to working on that).

      Shed about 200 pounds off by stripping all the interior behind the front seats and ditched my back bumper and mopped up a 2.2ltr Subaru Outback Sport He was pretty upset when I told him I only have 74 hp

      Most times yes. Haha. However when you have a uk spec rocco thats always had euros, just like anyone else, you want something different.

      Was in the process of switching it to Digi-I for a turbo setup. But I've changed my mind now that I have 2 boosted cars. I don't need/want a third one, I just want to enjoy my rocco in NA format with 2L + cams.

      Loaded my trunk full of stuff for our vacation in Sardinia/Italy...starting hiere in germany tomorrow at 6 a.m.
      First stop for 2 days is by a friend in Luzern/Switzerland...he gets some scirocco stuff from me like driverside fender, foam material for scirocco headliners and some nice www.Scirocco-Lounge.com lanyards...
      Then we´ll carry on to Italy and take the ferry boat to Sardinia.

      Hope everything will be good and we´ll have a nice vacation with lots of cool scirocco

      glad you are bringing your Scirocco back on the road

      on my list this week an oil change for the 78, since the drive up north put 3100 + miles on Leela, last week

      Is that what is supposed to go in the fuel tank? I've been using gasoline lol

      Today I removed my old shift linkage bushing, it looks like someone used a piece of rubber coolant hose to "fix" it? Old one on the left, new replacement on the right:

      No, but it's what I need to get back into the engine bay. Car has been sitting for over a year and the local multi-legged wildlife of the stinger and red hour glass variety have taken up shop. I've been nailed by a black widow before, not something I care to repeat.....ever......ever.

      I hear ya. I have not been bitten yet, but one day a couple years ago I helped my friend remove the engine from his 1986 BMW 528e. It was his daily driver, and only after we removed the engine did we find no less than three black widows in his engine bay! Freaky considering we had our hands and arms all around in there, disconnecting wires and stuff. Yikes.

      *Today I ordered a new one-piece speedo cable, red drive gear, and small clip to hold them together. They should all be here tomorrow and I'll delete my O2 sensor counter box.

      Meh, not much today.
      I checked/adjusted the psi in all five tires. I'm planning on driving the car about 300 miles on Sunday.
      Tomorrow I'm probably wash it after I get home from work.

      Mounted a 10 row oil cooler to replace the 16 row in the '78. Overkill, but much less overkill than the 16 row. Fabricated new mounts for the new cooler so it's vertical instead of horizontially mounted.

      Ordered 4 new Digi injectors for the '86 to replace the one leaking down causing a hot start issue in the '86. I would have them cleaned, but for $13ea new, it's cheaper to replace.
