Finished up the intake manifold today, welded in some recesses in the bottom to make clearing the spark plug wires better. Also added a little detail on the side near the oil filler where the throttle cable cutout in the valvecover didn't align with the edge on the manifold. Cell phone battery died, so no photos tonight.
Had to order more powder for powdercoating, don't have enough to do all the wheels. Going to try and use what powder i have left to finish the intake manifold/valve cover/last charge plumbing. The company I got the brake lines from is being super cool and sending me a pair of correct front lines. The boost, A/F, oil pressure gauges I'm trying to source aren't in stock anywhere. Going to keep looking.
Need to get a bubble flare tool so I can finish up the hard lines. Also need to start picking up the parts and supplies to do the wiring.
Lastly, and more of a reminder to myself in case I lose my list, I need to source the following miscellaneous parts;
drivers door handle
passenger rear speaker grill
trim screw for plastic windshield trim (passenger side far right)
rubber seal around trunk key lock cylinder (between taillights and cylinder)
rubber grommet into trunk lid that VW logo pops into
front fender liner hardware (screws/plastic nutserts)
sideskirt hardware to pinchweld (screws/plastic nutserts)
hardware (scews?) for top edge of front bumper
