      Just feeling things out right now, thinking of selling off this car so I can fund my other Scirocco.

      1980 Scirocco
      unknown miles (body)
      motor has ~180K, and still going strong, doesn't burn oil
      GX Block w/ big-valve head (from 85/86 Golf)
      Megasquirt 2 on a V3 board, controlling fuel and ignition
      dual outlet exhaust manifold, w/ Euro downpipe (eliminates cat)
      Techtonics 2.25" 'cat' back w/ Dynomax muffler


      Interior
      not much there, my priority was to get the car sealed up, treat rust, and then re-carpet. I did get the car sealed, and the back half treated (and dynamat'd), but the front still needs work.
      Carpet is worn but useable (not in car)
      Will include a good set of un-cut doorcards
      dash has a few cracks, but is in fairly good shape.

      Exterior
      this is where the car needs the most help, and a big reason for me selling it, I don't have the skills to do some repairs myself, or money to have someone else do it for me.
      The paint is toast, no clearcoat on it at all.
      Surface rust in a number of spots
      the worst of the rust is the lower-rear fenders, directly behind the wheels, they will need to be replaced.
      Car was backed into before I owned it, so there is a small dent in the leading edge of the hood, and the front edges of the fenders need straightening.
      The windshield is cracked

      Suspension is H&R race springs w/ Bilstein struts
      FF Transmission
      will come with a set of Audi Ronal R8's, with very good rubber.

      Also, the fuel tank did have a leak, and I patched it. I am going to be driving the car a little bit pretty soon here, and if the patch didn't take care of the problem, I will include another fuel tank.


      $1700

      I actually didn't have to source any new seals, all mine were good.

      I'll get some pics of the dash, and I doubt it could be street legal in CA, since it has MS and no Cat

      thanks for the info. oh what kind of fuel injectors are you using cuz the stock injectors are different from everything i've seen for replacements.

      no, not at all. It's an entire replacement for the CIS (manual fuel injection), tearing everything out and replacing it with MS (electronic fuel injection). Nothing stock about it, and quite the steep learning curve.
