      Man sorry to hear that I hope its not because of the economy.

      No, I did it becuase of a new house under construction.

      I sold my '75 Scirocco because of a new baby two years ago...

      A year from now, maybe I'll be in the market again...til then, I'm focusing on the 'Rado.

      EDIT: umm...I can't claim to own page 3, when it's page 4.

      Today I'm mounting tires on my minty-fresh RMs.

      Cleaning the garage in preparation for getting the cabby out of the paint shop.

      I'll probably be chasing wiring gremlins in the GTI a bit before moving her into the other garage.

      And if I got time, putting brakes in the MKV. (But who cares about a MKV?)

      Thanks Man!
      car has come along way since i acquired it two years ago.
      I rewired every last wire in the car , only oe wires left are ones I cut and stripped to use simply for the material.
      so yesterday
      1- Replaced LH door handle (didn't lock and I need to keep my 2yr old son out my car he climbs in it all the time and plays stunt driver when I am not around)

      2- I straightened the metal edge under the rocker panels they were bent from floor jacks and lifts being incorrectly put under them .got some silver duplicolor at autozone and gave em a spray to.

      3- I had my friend LOSTSAILOR machine two holes into the side of an audi 5000 throttle body so I can mount a bracket onto it for a throttle cable ,sometime next week I am gonna get that on along with some TT street cams I got sitting in a box for over a yr now ,lol

      4- Almost forgot I wired up and plumbed the hoses for two hella air horns I put the pump under the rain tray and the horns in the LF front fender for that hidden look.

      Nothing done yet today but I am hoping to finish my rear drop plate removal and install some gaskets etc. along with a new oil feed fitting for the turbo to try and get rid of my oil leak problem.

      My boyfriend bought it back from the guy I sold it to, now we are a complete family again!!!

      I actually missed the little bugger. It's a b*tch, but it's less finicky than my 16v Passat. And it's WAY better on gas.

      If I were a supermarket lobster, I wouldn't wish for anything less than nuclear Armageddon.
