great build thread!!!!
Quick question guys! Having a brain fart due to all this wiring...
I forgot what plugs into the back of the hazard switch. I'm 90% sure it was a ground. It just so happens that I have an extra ground cable as well. Just wanna make sure before I solder a new end. Pics:

Yes I have a voltmeter. I have the full MK2 interior harness. So once its running, Ill have to start splicing the rear lights etc..
Still working hard on the wiring. bansheelos was nice enought to help me out last weekend. He definately showed me the ropes with the wiring. Super cool guy and I cant thank him enough
So, with his help, the interior wiring is DONE. This week I got the engine harness all plugged up. My only 2 issues left is:
1) fuel pump wont power
2) no power getting to the mk1 starter
Still working on this stuff so updates will not be as exciting. Shes super close to starting up.
Pics because nobody likes a pic-less update:
Haha thanks. The wiring looks scary but it's not too bad. I'm definitely learning patience.
I got a mk3 golf last week and the Cabby had to get pushed outside for a few. Hoping to get her back where she belongs by this weekend!

Im proud to say that she is now RUNNING
Took a lot of messing around. Turns out my problem was that I needed to bypass the alarm. Once I did that, she fired right up
no exhaust, alternator is jimmy rigged, ****s all bouncing around, but I don't even care. Just so happy!
Much much more work yet to come...
Yea they are already pretty awesome. Im going to be steam cleaning my set at some point.
Update: Ordered a few things I needed:
-MK2 throttle cable
-MK2 speedo cable
-MK3 clutch cable
I still need a MK3 OB2 MAF. I lost the one I had Im def not spending $180 on a new one. If anyone has one please let me know!
Did a little more work last night. Found a serp belt that works with my setup
A few issue with tail lights. Only have brakes at this point. Someone told me that I need to have the headlight harness plugged in before the back will work Ill give that a try this weekend. Also going to attempt to get the cooling system done. Most likely gonna use the Mk1 radiator with a slim fan setup. Wanna keep it all as clean as possible
Small update.. Got frustrated with wiring. Still no turn signals. So I made a new fan setup. Give me much more room and looks a million times cleaner
Also jimmy-rigged the mk1 coolant bracket so that I can use the mk3 coolant bubble. Not the prettiest way of doing it, but it's functional for now.
Alot more done this weekend..
Tucked part of the engine harness up in the rain tray. Also mounted the ECU under the dash.
Mounted the mk2 throttle cable. I'll definitely be using my Passat cover instead of this. Looks linda weird..
Final picture as I left her Sunday night:
Got a bunch more done tonight:
-shift linkage installed. New bushings and all that fun stuff.
-brakes all bled. All new fluid. 100% ready to roll
Last thing to do before she hits the road is bolt up the axels and find a way to mount the battery. I would like to put it in the trunk..
Relocated the batter to the trunk. Used a kit that I found at a local speed shop:
Decided to ground it under the seatbelt bolt.
Still have to mount it down. I will be cleaning up all of my wiring first. Also finished rebuilding the axles last night. I was going to take pics, but that's a pretty messy job so just take my word for it!
