      DO NOT THROW THAT AWAY!

      Good luck and looking forward to seeing the progress.

      For all of you complaining that your projects are going at a record slow pace, give it up.

      The record is mine

      PS: I am interested in that shield if you are not going to use it.

      Color is still TBD. Might stay OG, doubtful though.

      Definitely keepin the heatshield

      Back in 99, I was deployed to Kuwait for 6 months or so, lived in the middle of the desert. Terrible windstorms, sand just everywhere. Pretty sure cleaning all the sand/media out of this thing now is 10x worse...






      But, finally all clean and tucked back away until I can get started on the bodywork...which is hopefully soon.

      Looking good

      I'll have to make a run up to W/S one of these weekends. The Scirocco needs to stretch its legs.

      hah...that was my plan too, so I'm doing this in my buddies garage. Then of course I bought the wrecked one for my wife, which slid the manx over, so...again, I have no inside parking.

      I am doing the exact same thing as you. Tearing down a 79' down to the bones, but I'm putting a 1.8T k04 instead of a 2.0T. That is what you're putting in right? Good luck with the build! I'll keep an eye out for updates.

      Indeed, sir! Albeit, not just a 2.0T harness, but a TSI.

      I had initially planned on a 1.8T...I even went as far as obtaining it with all parts needed, and completely rebuilt it. It is still sitting on my engine stand at the moment (for sale!) Along with a custom short runner intake, ATP mani, T3/T4 hair dryer, and lots of other random bits...really need to sell all of it to help fund this beast.

      Nice! I have my engine and turbo setup too, but I still have to rebuild it. It'll be a couple years to put it all together kind of like you but sounds like you're well on your way! Are you going with the Indiana Red paint to keep it original or are you doing something else?

      No clue yet...I've toyed around with lots of different ideas at this point. I used to hate mars red, until my buddy painted his mk1 a few months back and I actually got to see it new and fresh...so, kinda curious if I might feel the same way about some fresh indiana. Got plenty of time to decide I guess.

      I hope you don't mind potentially unwelcome advice, but the rear wheel arch of a mk1 is one of the places one's eye tends to land, so the lip needs to be perfect, same as the upper body line, hard to do, I realize.

      All advice is always welcome. Far from done friend, I assure you, tis only the second rough coat. Hell, as far as bodywork, I know I suck...I'm merely the beer hander-outer, checkbook, and tool bitch for this stage. The fine folks at everythingeuro are handling the make-pretty aspects. I get the easy job - everything else that isn't paint/bodywork.
