      This is a great thread and nice whip. You make me want to go out and get mine up and running sooner than I can. Keep at it. Now I must do the same. Thanks for keeping me inspired.

      I'm assuming you're after the cloth/canvas? I bought mine from Topsonline - love it, and great price too. Just don't bother with buying side cables as they only send you lengths of wire and some crimps and you can easily make your own (see Briano's write up). Their rear cable is great, though!

      ps MissHood - looking fabulous!!

      I bought my top from mtmfg as a whole kit. When you do the top just follow the briano top replacement Thread. and make sure you pull the 1000 staples out of the rear window LOL You'll have your choice between canvas and vinyl, so choose wisely.

      Hey everyone, my first 2013 update lol. I know it has been quite some time since I last posted, but I wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive and the crazy people in the world didn't killed me yet.

      I just recently got some money together and bought a few new things for the cabby. I pulled the head off the cabby this past Sunday in the blistering cold, freezing my ass off while having a bruskie or 2 which honestly should have been done years ago but better late then never. The head is being sent to a local VW shop in New Cumberland PA called Baum's Service Center. I'm sure plenty of the locals here have heard of him. He has a pretty long waiting list but I know he's the man to get the job done Right! I'm just having valve seals and the head resurfaced, is there anything else that is a good thing to do while the head is pulled off?


      is A fox intake manifold have a bigger inlet, and is it worth it to get a fox manifold and bore it? I'm trying to keep my trusty 8v, and just do junkyard upgrades until maybe one day when I hit the lottery. And I am in need of a dual-outlet exhaust manifold does anyone have one or can help me aquire one before I get my head back!

      have a great day boys and girls

      I was getting worried for a second there. I sure someone has a dual outlet manifold holding down the most important papers in their garage.

      So this is an uncommon thing will see about that.if I don't find one by the time I get the head back, the single manifolds going back on. for now.

      I didn't mean anything by the vampire icon; it was the closest thing to a zombie. When people go missing for a while I assume it was the result of a zobie attack.

      Totally unrelated I know! Keep it up with the progress, it makes me feel like a slacker and that isthe motivation I need right now.

      I hope they're doing new valve guides, too, they are the most important wear items in the head.

      As for the Fox intake, there are some differences due to the different engine layout that cause issues with fitting the cold start injector. A little easier (IMO) is a bigger (16V, I think) throttle body and open up the stock intake manifold to match.

      Good luck on the dual outlet manifold. The one that came off my '82 years ago had some nasty cracks in it, so it wasn't worth much, anyways. Keep an eye on craigslist and the classifieds. Even a Eurosport header is like $400, still a little less than the TT MK2 manifold and matching downpipe. I hate to say to go with a (gasp) Pacessetter, the quality just isn't up to snuff, IMO.

      Yea, idk if i'm going to take a plunge into getting a fox intake, or having one ported from scientific rabbit. I'm affraid once I get started on tons of upgrades That it's a never ending. I just wanna drive it. It's not going to be latest and greatest motor swaped, chromed out bling bling mk1 like you see at all the shows.

      I did find a dual exhaust manifold with a 2-1 downpipe fs on the threads. I'm picking it up this weekend. so stay tuned boys and girls!

      oh and I pulled my 2nd head within 2 weeks time tonight, my orginal head was junk. Here there was a hole threw, I guess a cylinder. honeslty I'm not 100% sure, but now I understand why the plastic water outlet on the side of the head kept melting

      Sometime's I have no idea why I even post up on People thread on Vwvortex anymore. Most people don't understand internet scarcasim nor can take a joke. I honestly don't care of you like my car or don't like my car, The only thing that matters is what I think.(same should go for you and your car's) Just because I'm some girl, it doesn't mean that I don't know **** except how to paint my nails.

      Also my car is coming along just fine, head has been at the shop for a week now with Mike@MGmotorworks, but I'm not going to tell you to stay tuned to my thread, because I live a pretty busy life. AND if I sat at the computer all day, I wouldn't get **** done.

      I love to rant, and IDGAF LOL
