      Glad to see you're saving it, I hit a deer last summer and had to do a ton of work on mine. That is a great color combo, see you at mk1 madness!

      Best way to clean up the motor is to steam clean it

      if you really t-boned another car, you came out lucky at 25 mph. I got t-boned in april at 5 mph according to the police report and got this on the receiving end......

      the other driver; not cited, as I was male

      All mk1's deserve an owner like you. Good work. Glad you didn't let this one slip away.

      When I saw it was a '77 I said "uh-oh"......then I saw it was Riyad Yellow and the damage my heart sunk. Good on you for keeping it alive. Here's my 44k mile Riyad Yellow '77. Keep up the good work.

      I think I have the same radio as you...and yes...my dash is surprisingly in great condition (one tiny nick) buuuuuuuut....I'm running a Scirocco 16v harness bumper to bumper and the cluster won't fit in the two pod dash but I'm gonna make a project of splicing the wiring because I really hate not using the original dash. I'm running a 2.0L 16V by the way.
