      None that I can thing of. The rabbit is pretty bare bones, selling it as is right now. Jetta will stay mostly stock for now.

      Now just debating whether I should spend the time to scrape the tar off the floor pans, the seem solid, not sure if i need to.

      too bad my dads buddy sold the freshest PNW set a couple months ago. he had owned them for years and yet got them powder coated to the factory silver with 165/45's. 13's are cool but it is nice swapping to something with a slightly larger OD. i think im gunna be putting my e21 steelies on my coupe though atleast at first. motor gaining some hp means nice wide wheels with something super sticky wrapped around them.

      I don't plan on any horsepower for now. Making it as simple as possible.

      Figured out it wasn't the relay. So now wire tracing begins. Got most the tar off the floor pans. Need to source out the one leak before I can sand and paint the floors.

      try the rear ground for the tailights, located in the trunk on the left side right beside the shock tower. if the ground is bad there it may burn up the ground wire and your rear tailights do all kinds of weird flashing...

      Right now I have no blinkers. The pass side turns on and will not turn off after I put the switch back. I tried a brand new relay and nothing changed.

      Thanks guys.

      Quick update. Got the blinkers fixed, it was a bad hazard switch.

      Just got the brakes done. And upgraded with ATE Powerslot front rotors.

      No pics lately. Will be getting window seals done soon to stop all the water leaks. Then the Interior can be cleaned and put back in.

      I saw the fox the other day, looked like it was burning some oil. And you also have a black bug right? The rabbit only looked nice on the outside from far away. Haha the jetta will be much better.

      yeah right now it burns a little oil when it warms up because my valve seals are leaking.when the car warms up the oil burn goes away. just ordered new ones from TT my brother put stock ones in and they can't hold the pressure. yeah the black bug is also mine and the yellow dunebuggy

      All your cars are pretty awesome. I may look at building a motor for the jetta once my finances have settled out. Trying to move and get the car in daily driver condition at the same time is a bit stressfull.

      building a motor takes time. trust me i know i whent through 2 cause of my brother.
      after my brother moved out and the fox motor was blown he left us high and dry. me and my dad did it right. tore the motor down and had it bored out new gaskets all around. new forged wiesco pistons and after 6 months of building it all winter 2000$ later the car runs great i just haven't rebuilt the head my brother did. im going to put about 600$ for new parts on the head.

      so building a motor is takes time. good luck to you nick. vwturbofox
