Best part is when I check my oil around any of my gas engine buddies..
"holy shiit man that oil needs to be changed like 30,000miles ago!"
"I just changed it last week.. this is fresh oil"
"omg, something is wrong with your car man, my oil has NEVER looked like that before.."
Idiiots I tell you.
Planned on tracking down all the squeaks and rattles an fix them. But I got side tracked.
Uinta organic pale wyld. Oh so delicious.
Six pack later and ive fixed the dash rattles and replaced the wipers with a set of bosch icons.
Got all the vinyl off one side as well
found this on ebay for $10 shipped, figured i could find a place for it.
looks like i can re-locate the ash tray to the lower pocket and put this in the center vent\ash tray area of the dash. would need to find an ashtray assembly from an a/c car though.
not going in the center console, as all my gauges still work
wow just looked again at your blue interior
so clean so blue so much awesome
love the underdash parcel trays everytime i see them now
so much space wasted under the dash on my tan interior 81...
jettas are hugely inconspicuous too compared to my rabbits
they just look like ordinary 80's sedans
i probally see several and never really notice them
great buy and project
Car is looking pitiful in its current state. No bumpers, badges, flares, trim, and the vinyl is being removed.
Things will be changing soon
I do need to figure out how to remove this black spray paint the PO decided looked good.
The blende isn't big enough to cover it all do it has to go.

After "educating" myself on why not to paint trim on the car, i can say a clay bar works very good for pulling spray paint off of a previously painted and cleared surface. I cant say its very time friendly either. mineral spirits perhaps or would that take ALL the paint off? Cant wait to see this done
Same thing happened to my blower motor but when you turned mine on smoke came from where the radio is supposed to be, i just drilled a tiny hole in the center of the fan sprayed some WD-40 in there and spinned it for 15 mins and it worked perfect! besides the smell of WD-40 for the first time turning it on My cover was also melted.
