Yeah, I got to fix the little rust spots on the inside on the fender well on the back driver side, but I can't get any wire wheels back there, so I'm going to use this stuff that you put on rust and it stops it dead in it's tracks, a good friend of mine used it on a couple of his muscle cars years back and hasn't had any problems since
My build thread:http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...my-85-Scirocco
Eric, this is the source I see most frequently for sheet metal:
A brief look around showed me no Scirocco-specific parts, but I suppose that depends on what stampings were used amongst the Mk1s. Either that or my poor reading and website navigation skills failed me.

I know its a pain, but if you can brush up on your German, (or use babelfish)
You can get some nice parts out of Germany...
Shipping might be a bit costly, but these are the Shizz, for body repair sheetmetal...
Browse through that store, or use e-bay.de with babelfish translator
I like your approach to restoring this S2 16v, by dismantling it entirely
looking forward to seeing the reassembly process of this Scirocco

Klokkerholm is a Danish company that also has a facility here in Sweden. I'll see what I can dig up in part numbers and information for you.
Mk2 Rear corners:
Sadly that seems to be it for the mk2, for the mk1 they list heaps of stuff:
Shouldn't be undoable to find a shell to cut the wanted parts from tho.
Took a walk around the junk yard today.
They had a MKII Scirocco there last fall with a clean body, though I would see if it was still around.
It's still there but in sad shape, a few to many moves with the fork lift I think. Body is now pretty beat up
, to the point that the roof is buckled.
I'll keep my eyes open for others, you carry on with the OCD restoration.

I would say stuff like bushings, seals etc all need to go new and it is much better to refresh the motor inside and out while it is out.
It would suck to put it all in and then need to rip it apart shortly after.

Eric: I just might end up at your house just for sh!its & giggles to help you wrench out!
I also hope, and wish you "pace" to help you, and your family, get through this.
Never loose the "pace" : have up & down swings, to take care of the real stuff, not the "German stuff", although I am a vivid fan, of "get it done"
I am looking forward of seeing you again at Cincy!
