      At least you're doing something to your car. My car is still sitting at stock ride height. But, you do have a nice starter. Two door MKIIs are pretty rare.

      What do you need welded? I can borrow my dad's welder. I'm can't make the best looking welds, but they're still functional.

      So he's obviously into custom work. Got any info? Shop name, number? You can PM it to me if you want. That's a bit of a drive but for the right work I'm game. I would like to have my car in a shop before this weekend.

      Bug Fest this Sunday at EdSchmidt VW in Perrysburg. I'll have my '97 there for sale, and my new '79 Rabbit Westy will be in the lot.

      Picked up my Rabbit last weekend and shot a music video for Victory Records with it. My buddy Eric was the director, I played the rabbit, and "Lola" played herself. Here is a link to the video and a couple behind the scenes shots. Band= The Scenic Song= Uh Oh. Good stuff.
