      Interesting findings there in regards to those Delphi headunits. I would have gone with #3 as well.

      I'm a fan of OEM-looking headunits as well and would go so far to say nearly all modern...

      While these have no reason to be inside the bellhousing, unless someone dropped them in there through the inspection port at the top, your picture does indeed resemble the guts of a reverse-light...

      The 4-position molex plug in the first picture and the purple wire in the last picture are definitely from some aftermarket accessory.

      The 1-position female plug with the 2x brown/white wires...

      Looks like this part changed after 1988. The pre-1989 pin does look completely different than the comparable 1989-on part.

      Yeah, the little probe-like thing that goes in the evaporator is a thermostat switch. This part shouldn't be too hard to find.

      The question of R134a conversion is kind of a can of worms. some...

      You're on the right track from the point in this picture. Redo the blend doors with foam - there are many DIY threads on this subject - and there is the obligatory heater-core replacement if you want...

      Yeah, the proper way is to use backing material and then body filler, primer, and textured paint. You might as well refinish the whole bumper to make such a repair blend in well, though.

      Beyond this obvious point, with some of the early Mexican-production 89s, VW did seem to use-up existing parts to effectively make some early 1989 MY more like 1988 MY cars. I've seen this a lot,...

      The bracket is P/N 051133805. I found the number in the diagram for the cold-start injector and fuel injector lines, instead of the diagram for the intake or vacuum pipes like one would expect.

      Rustoleum Appliance paint is pretty cool stuff. The paint is direct-to-metal - in fact, Rustoleum recommends DtM for best results - and cures very smooth like real 2k automotive paints. Rustoleum...

      Boy, that baby is badly abused and rough around the edges. Good on you for trying to do right by the car. There's so much wrong with the car that you are likely to get at least a little bit...

      Good point. I forgot to mention that in combination with each M8 hexagonal bolt, I use a 20mm (approximately) thick M8 washer for better better clamping force. The steering column guide tube will not...

      Yes, a pair of M8x1.25x30 hex bolts will fit perfectly in place of the factory shear bolts. The reason that OEMs use shear bolts in this location is to prevent theft, tampering, and ensure against...

      Sounds like the engine thermostat opened before the radiator fan temperature sensor registered the coolant at operating temperature. I have definitely had big air "burps" and little coolant overflows...

      You have a two options for the wiring of Euro taillights into a USDM Golf/GTI: get some taillight pigtails from a Euro Golf/GTI, or get some (easier to acquire) pigtails from a USDM MK2 Jetta and do...
