      One forgets how much work goes into these cars until one sees before/after pics. Great thread!

      From my collection of pics, the gearbox for the white GTI during mechanical restoration, my favorite part:

      Before:

      After:

      And just about to go in the car:

      I did the rest of the car the same way, but this was the first time I did more than clean and paint a gearbox, so I was really happy it worked!

      Its the HotVW's sticker that does it for me.
      I think 1993 was the year I got my subscription.
      Wow, I had no idea that car has been in your family THAT long.
