      ^^^looks killer man
      cant wait to see that thing

      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.

      Ha um well I share the love but instead of sherman williams paint ,Im wire wheeling Tiny surface rust spots.The good I'm in Arizona and there is verry little moisture in the air.
      Last but not least I seen(was going to the word saw) a few key spots where the rust Did not get to.So I got a easily buildable 77 runnig shell.Im the most happiest vw enthusiast In town.Oh yeah the only thing closest to my rabbit is a mid 80's caddy.

      I went to traffic school,And going to get rid of more rust,then more primer.
      I got the whole driver side quater panel (below the molding),and popped out a dent.Then painted primer in the dark.If the primer is not running you did not get enough primer on the car(rabbit).

      I drove Bjorn to and from work, rocking out to my new stock head unit, that was until I hit a bump, and the FM antenna decided to make horrid noises for the rest of the day...
      Also found out that my car runs about 100x better when it is oppressively hot out...upside?
