      What did you use to clean up those mating surfaces?

      I'll let Adam confirm, but pretty sure he got the stuff from NAPA. They're the equivalent of a scotchlite "disk" on the end of a round drill chuck (would also fit a die grinder). You buy the adapter as one piece, and the screw-on disks as another that come in three different abrasive levels. We used the lightest on the head (aluminum afterall) and the intermediate on the block. Works really well as long as your careful to keep the pads at a slight angle and make long slow passes (don't "drop" the pad onto one spot go - and don't put pad down completely flat and make circular patterns).

      Actually, NAPA didn't have them, so I got them at TruValue.

      The pads themselves were cheap... 2-3$ each..the drill adapter was $20... but it's awesome.

      Planning to make another push on Saturday during the day if anybody is available to help out... I've made a bit of a list:

      -swap water pump - I can do this on my own...
      -clean up the valve cover gasket area - again easy
      -plugs, oil, etc... easy
      -timing - not too difficult... JoeD, I heard you have some sort of tool for this?
      -borrow an engine hoist - anybody?
      -figure out the procedure to pull the old block and insert the new one. (pull front clip off? Do the lift the frame up option?)
      -do the swap.. hook everything up...
      -turn key!

      Here are the rest of the parts:



      Do want to put the key in the ignition and have it make real noises... making fake engine noises is getting old!

      Got an answer already in the corrado forums about the swap.. gotta take the front clip off or you're in for a lot of work doing subframe dis-assembly.

      Looks like ice gotta work Saturday AM, and we've got plans for Saturday PM.... But I should be able to cone over for a bit to help sling some wrenches. We've got a bit of work to do pulling off that front clip and yanking the engine/trans.

      I believe JoeD will have the clutch alignment tool, I've got the stuff for the timing belt and all that jazz.

      Definately gonna need some more hands to try and have this ready by next weekend - who all can lend a hand Saturday?

      Umm, I think I'm free all day tomorrow except for evening. I'm going to the night airshow.

      If there are some hands to help out, let me know.

      Oh and I was at panera, not huhot.

      I know there is a pre show for DIV on Friday at the Bergstrom VW dealership in Oshkosh (According to the DIV website anyway? Cant seem to find more info on this.)

      Last year there was a pre-show/GTG at a little ice cream parlor near the show that started at noon and ended when the show started.

      Is there a pre-show/gtg this year on Saturday?

      I asked a buddy that works at VW Oshkosh, and they're still not 100% on what's going on.
      He said he'd let me know later in the week.
