      I think you misunderstood me, I am spending the weekend opening cheap pool floats for the repair kits to fix her once more. The previous repair attempts with duct tape have proven to be quite irritating.

      That depends on exactly where you had the duct tape. Some talc could help with that irritation.

      I'm not quite sure about tomorrow, and how Atlanta will be impacted with the snow. But at long as the snow isn't too bad and PAP is still open, I should still be able to go. Maybe we can also stop at Harbor Freight Tools since its on the way. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      What time would you want to leave?

      Not sure about tomorrow, the snow looks pretty bad tonight. I definitely wasn't expecting this much. PM me with your phone number, or text me sometime early tomorrow morning at 706-351-4409.
      I guess it all depends on how the roads look in the morning and whether or not PAP will be open. I expect Cedar Shoals and the major roads will be passable if it quits snowing soon [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Cool man [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I just scraped the snow off my truck and turned it around (so I don't have to back out of the driveway). I learned that lesson when it snowed last year. I should have thought to get a bag of kitty litter to spread around under my wheels too [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      So did anyone go to PAP today?
      As for me, I replaced my pollen/cabin filter, washer reservoir and the speedometer cable today.
      Going to change the oil tomorrow.
      Getting a clutch on Tuesday.
      Still planning on the Tech Day at my place next Sunday, the 21st.

      Zach had the transmission hanging by one last bolt that didn't want to come out yesterday, so we had to leave before we got the transmission out. We're going back today. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Eric and I went to back to PAP today. Stopped at harbor freight on the way home last night and picked up a punch set, Used said punch set and dislodged the stubborn bolt and Im now happy to say the fox will now be sporting a PSA 5 Spd Trans! Picked up the shift linkage and tower as well. Now all Im missing is an engine hoist, to get this project back on the road

      You'll hate me even more when you find out what I got from pull-a-part. But I'm not telling yet because I have to go get the rest of it this Saturday.

      Anybody have any requests from Pull-A-Part? They had some decent MkIII's there last time, and plenty of MkII's. I didn't see any GTI/GLI's, but they were adding rows to the import section so... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Quick Question.... Im trying to pull the Dizzy out of the jetta so I can swap the gears. I got the 13mm bolt off and now the dizzy wont come out, I cant even get it to turn, How the hell am i supposed to get it out? Have i screwed the pooch on this one or is there some trick? Ive never had a dizzy not slide right out when i needed it too

      Once you pull the bolt out of the retainer, it should pull out. Maybe spray some PB Blaster between the dist. and the block, that might loosen it up. Somethings crazy if the housing won't even twist. Does the rotor move when you turn over the engine?
      Edit: We're going to PAP sometime Saturday, but I'm not sure exactly when we're gonna leave. I can call you if you want to meet up.
      Has anyone ever pulled a windshield before without breaking it? I may be getting a windshield for the Ford in addition to some VW goodness. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
