      I really just want to raise the oil pan.
      I made a skid plate out of a sign like you did. But power steering pulley is so low down there I would like to just raise everything an inch or so.
      Might delete power steering and the ac compressor this weekend though.

      Did you use the method that the guy has on here for like 35$ to delete the power steering?
      I'm thinking about buying it.

      The loop he sells is super small.

      You have the "Activ" stereo system. I believe those are like mini-amplifiers on each speaker. Ripping it all out and starting from scratch sounds like a win!

      Born in Tampa Bay, FL and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I own a '85 Cabriolet that i swapped a 2.0L bottom end into after i ran the original 1.8 with little oil (it was my first car). 12 years later i still have it, but drive my VR6 GTI more than my Cali Cabby. Now that my VR6 is in the shop for an extended period of time, i had to get my cabriolet back on the road. Man i missed her. Seeing this thread really makes me want to finish the restore i was doing on it.

      Thank you for the inspiration fellow Floridian! Keep it going!
