      filled up the tank, went for a drive and parked it
      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      I got rid of the burnt gear oil smell from a badly grooved passenger side drive flange that was flinging gear oil onto the down pipe. Stinky!

      Lucky I had a good one in the basement.
      There are some good hybrids.... The ones that burn gasoline and rubber!

      cleaned up the grille a LOT, but its still filthy. I need a hose and an old toothbrush.
      How does that heat gun/hair dryer stuff work to make it look new? Do you have to hold it on there a long time?

      Been putting coils and poly. Broke a camber bolt, still waiting on replacement to come in the mail, had a rear axle bolt seized into the bushing, got that replaced, had a rear shock bolt seized into the bushing, now waiting for a new one of those. See pic of mangled strut...

      replaced the ground cables and put new battery in. Also wanted to smash the windows out and light on fire but did not give up yet.
