Still need to repaint the orange crap in my bay. Had a huge oil leak, turned out to be a loose valve cover
Swapped euro caliper/knuckles, rotors, ball joints, bearings, brake lines, carriers and pads for larger US spec stuff. Holy crap my bearings must have been shot, It's so much more quiet, and if it makes since the rotation feels slicker. Also re-tightened the serpentine belt, no more rattling and still need to bleed the brakes some more

I appreciate what OP is doing with this car. I'm glad it went to a good home.
Thanks for bumpin! Still working on the ecode situation
Really the big project right now is I'm in process of ACing the car. This car was non AC from the factory and it's too hot. I've been cross referencing this site- http://www.davidprojects.net78.net/V...etrofitAC.html I have all the parts and should be attempting to do the install in a couple weeks. I love how VW is a "parts bin" company and most everything will bolt on if it's a similar 4 cylinder (abf, aba, abs, adz, acc, etc.)
Nice, I had a 1992.5 GT special when I lived in Germany for my daily, it had an ABS motor as well but 4 wheel disc brakes power everything except seats, nice textured trim package, was a great car.
It is what it is!
