      Eric and I Went to PAP today and I picked up an oil Pan for the fox that looks new compared to the origional.
      On the way back we stopped by Harbor Freight and As luck would have it They had a 1 Ton Engine Lift on sale for 139. For some reason I got an extra discount and it only cost me 112!!!!! After spending some time at the Lilburn International farmers market and Picking up a Durian. Eric and I tried to rush the setting sun to put the lift together......We lost. Tomorrow I will finish putting it together and maybe pull 1 of the 2 motors...Finally some real Progress

      The bag of hardware that came with the engine lift was missing at least 8 nuts.
      How was the Durian? I hear they are quite pungent...

      VW's are proof of miracles. Most of the cars on the Vortex leave a double rainbow behind in the parking spot.

      I'm still hoping to make this GtG on Saturday. Though if my suspension comes in, I might be doing that instead. But there is a chance it won't be here til next week. So we'll see. Can't wait though. And I think Matt will probably bring the wagon as well.

      Motor is loose in the Fox, ran out of daylight but all I think it needs now is a little tough love and the trans should fall and the motor should come all the way out! It wants to come out now but the crank pulley hits the bottom inside of the front bumper and lifts the whole car off the jack stands!
      Im going to cut the axles on the jetta as they are PITA to get too and its taking a toll on my 8mm Tripple square bit. After that I just have to unbolt the Engine and trans mounts and it should come right up!
      Since its supposed to rain all day tomorrow I doubt much will get done, maybe a trip to the engine builders is in order
      Wed should be a Turning point for the project and things SHOULD move quickly after that. Just need to make a list of all the Misc gaskets and other small parts I need to replace and Place another order Are there any Gaskets that are preferable to others? I need to order quite a few, along with T belt kit, Cam (TT or Autotech?), Shifter Bushings, Coolant hoses, and probably about a hundred other things
      For now its Time for

      What all is in the shopping carts? There may be more things like the breather that can be fixed without buying the special parts. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Its not too bad from Griffin. An hour at most.
      Zach, that looks like everything in your cart. Are you sure the Audi 80 head gasket is the right one? I always thought the ABA/RV combo used the ABA head gasket, but I could be wrong. Or the ABA could be the same gasket as the Audi 80 for all I know. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Still plannin' on bein' there. Matt may or may not. Depends on how he feels, he just go in from Vegas this morning at 5 am. I'm sure jet lag is killin' him right now. But hopefully he'll be in attendance as well Besides, it's been a bit since I had Locos and it sounds good right now.
