So I got lucky and found a new daily so I can finally start stripping the cabby apart. I have a lot of plans for the winter and hopefully I can do everything on my list. As soon as I do the head gasket job on the Jetta, the fun will begin.

I've been stocking up on some parts over the past few months. I picked up a 16v head that I don't know if I'll use. I might do the 16v head on an ABA block or the stock JH block. Or I might just keep the stock 8v.
The bay will be painted creme with polished and chrome dipped goodies (maybe even some copper dipped parts). It will get a fresh respray with some body work, such as shaves side markers, shaved antenna, and fix dents and rust. I plan to wire tuck and shave a few things from the bay as well.
As for wheels I'll be keeping the Biturbos but fix up the scratches and nicks from the past season and run smaller tires.
One last picture before the tare down
Here's some stuff I bought:
Early strut mounts and chrome Beetle door handles with bezels
Brand new in box, never used chrome overriders. (With instructions and hardware)
What Beetle did those handles come from? They look like they don't have the lock buttons liek the ones I always see at the swap meets. I've been looking for a set for mine and have come up empty, so far.
