      Well, my baby took a hit to the right front while parked....and driver decided to keep on driving (happened in the middle of the night...stupid drunk driver I'm guessing )....
      I'll have some photos up of everything this evening, and will be able to start pulling parts this weekend and shipping early next week. All located in 25880.

      It's and early build mk2 from the westmoreland plant. No I don't have a grill. Prices are somewhat negotiable/OBO

      G60 Head - head was installed ~6500 miles ago and has had 1 oil change on it. Had new valve seals installed and 3-angle valve job as well as decking of mating surface. $290+shipping

      G60 valve cover - crinkle-coated red by previous owner, not the best job but its serviceable. Will include OEM Grommet (~6500 miles old) & brand new aftermarket oil cap (metal). $45+shipping

      [s]Weber 32/36 progressive downdraft carbeuretor with intake manifold. BFI Kit. Includes adjustable FPR. This was my favorite upgrade to the car, and it is tuned perfectly for an 8v setup like mine right now. Bottom side of intake manifold was slightly trimmed to clear header, so will work with any exhaust setup. Ready to Run - $350+shipping[/s] SOLD

      Header - no-name, but a stainless flanged tri-y header with good welds and 2 provisions for O2/wideband. Outlet is 2.5" and this really opened up the exhaust side of things. I ran it as straight 2.5"pipe until I got pulled over and it was wicked sounding. $75+shipping

      GTI Sport seats, F&R - minor tears at adjusters, fair condition but will clean up nicely - I will need to be compelled strongly to ship these. $200 I DONT WANT TO PULL OR SELL THESE, PLEASE SEE THIS THREAD WHERE THEY'RE OFFERED FOR FREE http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...pe)-Mt-Hope-WV

      Glass Westy headlights for H4 bulbs with 194 city lights. I had just replaced the headlight bulbs (silverstar ultra) but one of the city lights is burnt out (they're silverstar as well) $125+shipping

      Five (5) OEM 13" steelies with good tires, painted black - ~75% tread left - I'll need to be compelled strongly to ship these as well - $180

      14" BMW Bottlecaps, meh shape, 1 bent but fixable - 2 good tires if you want them - $120

      OEM VW Thermostat - only used for ~6500 miles, I had issues with all aftermarket thermostats, finally sorted out with OEM part. $15+shipping

      Toywagen A/C delete pulley with belt - $50 shipped

      PLUS LOTS OF OTHER PARTS - if you see it on the car, it is for sale!!! Photos will be up as soon as I get home from work. Radiator, water pump are nearly new, Manual steering rack has less than 5k miles on it, all body parts except RF fender/door & hood, rain gutters, glass, wiper arms w/ aero piece, and much more (not many interior parts) - ask I probably have it.

      NIB PARTS
      Meyle control arm $60+shipping
      Meyle Ball Joint $20+shipping
      Meyle Tie Rod Assy (includes inner & outer, outer is for right side) $40+shipping

      most recent photo I have of her:

      It did, sadly was deleted by previous owner - all that remains are condenser and evap.

      Though you did remind me it has Toywagen A/C delete pulley, adding that now! Thanks!

      I'm getting a fair amount of PM's asking about other parts - steering wheel, switchgear, etc. YES it's all for sale - and everything is OBO folks! Pulling the head this afternoon

      friday cold bump - cluster, rain gutters, all glass, door seals, a/c controls, body parts are all fair game - if you need it just ask!

      85 Golf Diesel, 308,000 (rear-ended); 06 Jetta, 30,000 (sold); 90 Jetta GL (just bought!)

      I'll take my chance in asking about the rain gutters. Suspect that being on an 85 (like I have), they, too, are shot. How are they? I'm interested only if they are in very good condition.

      no cracks, and a little faded - but functional and in tact - as long as I can get them off. I'm at a hotel away from the car cause we have no power/water, but I'll give a shout with photos as soon as I can

      additional photos of the head - I pulled the valve cover and had to snap a few because of how nice this thing is - all new lifters as well (forgot to mention that in the original post), and I will include the cam/sprocket as well if you'd like.



      OBO, everything.

      OK - I've got a taker for the free seats (that was harder than I thought it'd be).

      I agreed to hold onto the car until he came down so it'll be here another week but seats are not available for now.

      and up top - front small bumper is sold pending funds as well as rear door latches and drivers seatbelt (non-power).

      Lots still on the car that I'd hate to see get crushed.
