      ain't no thing, dan. car won't move anyhow.

      i think i might hit the yard soon and grab a mk2 rear motor mount soon to "refresh" outta the car. stock mount, or poly insert... hmmm.

      i see fluid stains all over the trans next to the slave cylinder. the local parts place that has good stuff wants 150 for the clutch slave cylinder (even the parts guy said that was too expensive lol), and the slave for 70... germanautoparts with shipping should be 20 or 30 bucks cheaper, so there's that.
      i need a roll of that plumbers sealing tape, whatever it's called, too.

      gonna be an expensive weekend, and i'll basically be at zero.
      guess i'll order up a brake master cylinder, too. paint it all pale gold or bronze. ersumthin.

      master cylinder is on it's way to my place,
      a fun set of wheels will be in possession in the next week or two.
      still waiting on my coils to come back to me,
      and the control arms should be here any day now.

      still need to source a running 16v motor in good shape to throw a headgasket and waterbelt/timingpump at without fear.

      i'm sticking with the four lug setup for the time being,
      and just making sure that it's riding well, as i've got a drive to tampa and back for xmas!

      things seem to be coming together, for a little while, anyhow.
      i need a poly insert for a rear motor mount if anyone has one laying around they don't want anymore. hint hint.
      or a fresh rear mount, either one.

      Control arms should be to you tomorrow or thursday.

      Nice to se this coming together. Have fun tearing all of the trim out of the hatch section iof your car when you do the coils.

      control arms are here!

      i'm not looking forward to the clutch cylinder,
      i have to do it the same day i'm moving.

      just a short move, but the car has to work to get over there.

      by xmas, i have to:
      replace the head/headgasket/front seal
      clutch master cyl
      control arm
      lower it
      and quite possibly some wheels.

      then i plan on driving it to tampa and back.
      wheeeee

Two white 16v wagons with our interior, a few VR's and a few sedans. If you need parts let me know soon and I can plan a trip back up there.

      I got myself a spare 16v alt and a spare distributor which is always nice to have on hand when owning a 16v. I like to keep an extra dizzy/cap/rotor in the car somewhere for emergencies. I have always had issues in some way or another with 16v dizzys going bad very randomly.

      I would never swap a motronic 16v to digi2. Its runs too well. I'm pulling the 8v from my golf next week. You can have anything digi2 related off of it that you would need. (Throttle body,injectors,injector harness, Blue CTS, injector cups, ECU, MAF, airbox, FRP, Engine harness)

      You would need to get a fuel rail from a 1.8t and modify it or drop money on a Ross or BBM piece.

      this car is already digi2,
      got converted long before i snagged the car.
      bbm fuel rail and some other stuff in it.
      i wouldn't have done it myself,
      and would have done digi1 if i was going to do some crazy things like turbo, etc.


      i may snag some spare digi2 stuff from you though, to have it on hand when i need it.

      oh haaaayyyy

      might actually throw a wrench at the car today.
      new hoses for the hydraulic fluid is here,
      and i have the gumption to get the bad control arm changed out.
      it'll be a while before i can change the head, but i want to do it right and get it done well and good, not rushed or sloppy.

      there's still an issue with getting my old coils for the car, a bit more of a headache than i was hoping for. but i'm feeling up for working on the car again after many many months.
      as it warms a bit, i'll get to cleaning the interior, as well.

      working on getting a new job, and if all goes well, will be moving and hopefully moving on up in the automotive world to a car that starts everyday and is easy to get parts for. or... OR... doesn't need to get parts at all!

      eventually, brakes and wheels will get paint and maintenance, too.
      if anyone has some stainless steel brake lines laying around they don't want, holler at me.
      i still need to buy those vents from dan.
      ugh.

      baby steps.

      well,
      after fitting the new hose without holes in it, it turns out my leak is coming also from somewhere else.

      i picked up a spare clutch master cylinder,
      that will go in soon, i just want to move the car around.
      the control arms are still sitting here, as i am jack and jackstand less.
      it doesn't help that i leave to go hang out with other people in a different city 2 hours away every weekend, either.

      i'm planning on doing less and less to this car as the weeks go by.
      the head needs to be rebuilt, i want a reliable car.
      still waiting on my friend to give my coils back
      and i still have a million things to do to the car.
      i may lose my company car soon if i get a new job,
      so this one will have to be a solid runner.

      valves can be reused from one head to the next as long as they are within spec, yes?
      a cam chain (right name?) should be replaced, yes?
      and my ocd is screaming at me to redo the wiring from the conversion. it works great, but looks awful. i'll be fine with inexpensive loom, but many things need to be unplugged and rerouted.

      anybody have any inspiration or motivation i can borrow?

      Discovered my slave cyl is bunk. This is in addition to the split hose from the reservoir, and possibly the master too. Wheeeee!

      So much for wheel repair next week.

      Did some emblem freshening, put in a used master cyl after cleaning it and painting,
      But it feels empty, with my slave boned. Put some light coats of metallic silver on the sebrings,
      But I'm going to have to pull em.

      Head is getting dropped off next week. Wooooo!

      emblem back in, i like it silver vs. body color a lot better.
      the little receptacles for the rear vw logo broke upon removal, so i'll grab a couple of those when i can.

      i spent a ton of time yesterday bleeding the master/slave cyls in the front,
      practically zero progress in the end, as it turns out that he slave cylinder is toast. blurg.



      i got a little overspray on the tires, i'll be painting those spots black later, probably, unless i find some acetone or stripper.

      ordered a clutch slave cylinder today. wheeeee
      oh, and my parts dealer had a couple of the emblem grommets laying around in the shop. i'll pick them up this weekend. yayyyy
