Replaced the valve cover gasket and oil cap. Hopefully that fixed the "melted crayon" smell.
I had some Corrado grey dot seats that were intended for my 88 Fox, but they really complemented the 93's interior better, so in they went today. The seats weren't perfect, but the rest of the interior leaves a lot to be desired anyway. They are much better than the Audi 4000 non-sport seats they replace.
A look at the driveway. Too many cars; need to think about getting rid of one of them.
I like wagons, get over it.
The electronics behind the speedo are for the dynamic oil pressure system. I still haven't gotten around to calling VW and seeing if they can swap out the 3 I got. Two were pretty seized up. Snapped my original speedo cable and a new replacement before I realized what was going on.
I really suck at smog.
good to know...i think a new speedo cable is in my future.The electronics behind the speedo are for the dynamic oil pressure system.

headed south today to meet up with Colin (dacolino) and pick up a cool set of tarantulas that he had for sale. He offered to meet me midway and I got to see his beautiful '88 wagon in person. Hope my wagons can look half that good when they grow up. We spent some time BS'ing and the drive was just great with the awesome spring weather we had. I'm realizing more and more that this fox forum is home to some real quality people, and I got to meet one more today. Was a pleasure Colin.
'New' Dino wheel! (thanks to dacolino)
What a difference from stock! Stiffer and real nice wide grip. Turning and handling feel great.
It needs some leather conditioner but I sort of like the worn look as it matches the brown interior The leather otherwise is in great shape - no tears and all the threading is intact.
(edit: wow - the photo makes the leather look worse than it actually is)
