      got the mounts from BFI. Im going to enjoy my teeth rattling @ idle.

      New Chin spoiler and hood cable are taking forever. BTW its not a 90mm or a 50mm.......its more awesome than that.

      AND, since i am in career termoil, no carbon hood ordered, and no hatch install yet. Ill be putting the stock hood back on after the new cable arrives.

      Nah, I had the option, declined to do it. they even made me confirm it on the computer screen, and i said "yeah, thats nice"
      Looked better on the screen.

      HA, This was a forethought, I actually was told 12/28 for my plate to arrive. I ordered the plate the tues after h20,and amnot going to do as much as i liked, due to certain loss of income. Im searching for opportunities.

      well. if you are happy with them.. cool..
      I liked the old florida tag with a single orange in the center..
      I used to put a round VW sticker on the orange and cover it.

      I preferred the 1990's style Florida custom plate that had nothing but the shape of the state in the middle in orange, and the word "FLORIDA" between the lower mounting holes... I hope when I reach "antique" status according to the Florida Statutes, that I can run my old custom plate from the 90's...

      Rock what you've got. Atleast now we know who passed us. That's the beauty of a custom plate.

      I wont be passing anyone with my slow a$$ car.....

      thanks though.

      Stg 2 BFI Derlin mount in up front, too lazy to do the rear, but my motor still jumps a good bit when goosed. Im pretty sure that will stop once the rear is put in. I will be getting the Trans Mount in Derlin as well.

      Ahh....no hood allows you to see and hear everything.

      UPDATE:
      well....the "hood" ride epic continues. I got a new hood cable, but did not get the new trunion with the bolt for adjustment. As soon as I get one of those, I'll be in business.
      Plans are to pull the core support back out, cut the tab on the driverside frame rail to allow the radiator to sit correctly, put in the new cable and put it back together.
      I did get the stg 2 derlin front mount in, but have been too lazy to do the rear. Too broke to order the trans mount so this Is where I get stuck. The mount did add a noticable amount of power transfer, and I kinda like the rumble felt through the whole car. Raw.

      Attended Fixx Fest 6. Took the win in the Corrado/Scirocco class. Thanks to the voters for the win.

      Week of thanksgiving sucked, but I managed to work on the Rado.
      The HVAC controls had melted 2 times, and I found the culprit, blower motor resistor.
      I ripped apart the dash guts, glovebox, center bezell, and did the hvac control swap once more. Again using a MK3 controler, with the plug wired to the Corrado style plug allowing full backward compatibility to get another OEM Corrado spec one later if needed.
      Oh what fun this was, but the HVAC fully works again, and I have heat in time for the Floridian winter. Yeah yeah. like 40 degrees.
      Was going to do climatronic but that got kinda screwed....more on that after pics.

      old one:

      new one:

      Dash ripped apart.

      Best $20 I spent at H20 this year.

      so that is all working, but alas, I am not.
      I was let go yesterday from my "career" which was a joke that I now see.
      I have to make a move but hell, Dedication:
      Corrado not getting parted out or sold under hardship.

      The Benz is a completly different story, and would be replaced by a MK2 if I had to.

      Next project cause I couldn't afford the eibach bar for the front , was a more affordable rear bar. $22.00 to be exact.

      here's to going back to school. haha

      Sorry you got the can buddy. Sell that Benz and drive a sht box daily. It hurts at first, but you grow accustomed to looking like trash and it numbs the pain. I did it! Lol nah, its not that bad. Mk2's are good daily's.

      Haha, no need yet, im good for a little while. Seriously considering schooling for surgical tech, seems that Healthcare is the only recession proof industry. And i need about 10k to finish this car th way I want to.

      I am telling you... This has been rough for us since the start of Q2. Outlook "appears" to be better, but I'll believe it when the $$ starts rolling back in. I guess 80% salary is still better than 0% salary "laugh:

      Your smart for choosing health-care. Plenty of $ to be made. I tried it (I am a certified Phlebotomist ) But I quickly found that I'm not the "clean environment" and nice guy type. lol I'm too much of a dirty, non-compassionate, ass hoel. I belong doing construction unfortunately. It was good $ tho.

      Well, im smarter for not, I would have been stressed out and miserable. I am enrolling in school for automotve to get certified and get some new tools at discount. LOL
      Ive done nothing but hang out at shops since my teens, and as of late, I cannot escape wanting to work on stuff.
      Using the extensive background I have, I will be a one man army in whatever I do.
      Ill let my friends on here know my status!

      On with the show.....



      Im a little busy tonight...lol

      Current temp in Central Florida: 268 degrees

      Health care and trades man. People get sick, and people need to build ****. Or you can come apprentice under me to be a chef. You just have to move to edmonton, quite possible the worst city in North America. All I ask for is help fixing my car. Good luck on figuring it out soon man.

      Update:
      Still no employment as of now, but am doing well. Haven't enrolled into any schools yet either. Thankfully did a little bit of savings, so I can still play a little.

      the great news: MOTOR BUILD HAS STARTED!!!!!!

      I finally went ahead and decided on 82mm pistons, for a Corrado correct 2.9l displacement.

      Made a call to James @ Four Season an chatted about options and after a brief talk decided to go with the Wiseco forged 82MM,10:5 to 1 comp for a final comp ratio of 11.0 to 1 with a MK4 metal H/G. (Using a 8.5 to 1 H/G spacer later should I decide to run boost at a final comp ratio of 9.0 to 1 when I am ready)

      Full ARP kit, Main and Head Studs, as well as Rod bolts,
      All new bearings, Mains, Rods, and Intermediate shaft. Shot Peened stock rods, so it will be safe to say bulletproof bottom end?!?!?

      I tore down a cylinder head and will be sending it to the machine shop for love. Once the parts get here, they will also be balancing the crank, and having the machine shop install the new intermediate bearings and crank, and then taking it home for the rest of the assembly process by me.

      I am shooting to have the car back on the road for Winter Jam in February, and just might pull it off!!!

      Wish me luck!!!

      ^^ With friends like this, who needs enemies!!!!

      So, both cylinder heads I have are no bueno for a rebuild. Thank you green coolant and idiot previous owners. SO, I will reuse the one currenlty in the car with a broken valve spring. Yeah..... .440 Lift on 268's is not a great thing for oem valve springs. They apparently did not like each other.
      The High Rev springs on my shelf will go in, and if I have time and money...maybe +1 valves on both sides.

      Pistions and stuff should be here by 21st.

      Do werk Zack! Everything is lookin good dude. I have some catchin up to do. I am waiting to do my page once I get a little closer to putting it back together. Lots of work though! Now I'm trying to hook up the RS's with some 2.5" lips to look as baller as yours and I'm polishing them too (chrome was out once I started the motor build) The shell is at Dave's for a couple months so gotta get crackin on the obd2 swap.
