      Everything is at machine shop since Thursday. Cylinder walls looked good. I'm hoping NGP gets it back in Mon. They were trying to have it wrapped up in Tues.

      I'm excited too. Sucks that winter just decided to show up. VA just blanketed the roads with salt.

      Actually no. VW didn't ship all of the main bearings so we're in a holding pattern on reassembling the engine until tomorrow once UPS arrives. Head got pressure tested today after a good cleaning.

      More delays since VW can't seem to ship the correct bearings and thermostat.

      Here's some pics of the block. The cylinder bore's are getting measured today for ring/piston fitting.

      Okay, I finally have an update! The yellow main bearings were packaged together in bags by VW so they were all dinged up when they arrived at NGP. The replacements were shipped in separate boxes and received on Thursday so the engine reassembly has finally started. For the life of me I cannot understand why VW would ships main bearings in a bag and not a box. Absolutely ****ing retarded.

      When I stopped off there yesterday on the way home from work, NGP had had the crank, rods and pistons installed and were bolting down the head.

      If all goes well, she'll be ready to go next week.
