      ...in one week end dude you can have the motor pulled,freshened up and re installed with a new clutch,throw out and a disc...clean all the terminals and bs and be done with it...no sense doinf a swap on a van that has more rust issues than mech issues...dude get the priorities in order brother.

      When did you become so sensitive?

      I just looked back to see what might be bashing and could not find it. Sure most of us dont really pull punches (you know I don't) and tell it like it is, but I think you are missing the point being made. Folks here want to see this project done. You are getting real world advice from folks that have pulled a bunny out of a hat before. It aint magic, its just plain jane planning, and hard work that leads to reaching the ultimate goal.


      This aint the mk3 forum where folks just bash to bash. Take this as advice, constructive criticism or just plane advice and motivation before you think its bashing.

      Oh and if it will help IOU 1.5 bro hugs.

      Fuk can I get at least one progress pic. And not of a coil or fuel filter either. Give me some sugar please.

      Just this week I brought a car home stripped the front end out did a major pan head shroten. Stripped the beam down narrowed it 5" did some cleaning. With no money spent.

      So what you're saying is I cant sell this thing for 1 million dollars lol I called KEP up and apparently they have 2 diff sizes for the plates (8in. & 9in.) So I have to measure it.

      I wanna pull the trans out next and clean up the case, want to pull the tank and try and clean it out. Wanted to start the rust removal process in the engine bay, whats better grind ing or chemical removal?
