      That is really looking great, and coming down to the last bits of the punch list :thumbup:

      I can't see much detail on the disconnected wiring harness, but any chance those connectors go to the...

      I agree with Other Eric. I would remove the overlying stuff to get full access and use a high quality Vice Grip that won't slip off.

      There are a number of optimistic statements in your post today which suggest that you haven't yet learned your lesson after two years of jinxing yourself :P

      I can't claim to have a good answer, I don't think there is one. You seem aware of the pros and cons of each option, and although your unrecoverable costs are perhaps the highest I've seen on this...

      x2, looking like a new car!



      I also did the drums black and I painted my heat shield with a wet coat of silver followed immediately by a misting of gold. It looks very real (and it's...

      What's screaming at me is the cam sprocket, the fact that it runs at all is a miracle!

      I assume you need a Cabby door and have access to a Golf 1/Rabbit door?
