      Copy/paste:

      Just wanted to introduce my 'rocco.

      The Craigslist Gods shined their eyes bright upon me with this absolute peach of a Scirocco. She's an 88 16valve in Alpine White with black interior. Like most older VWs, it has issues, but nothing honestly major.
      Oil leak at the pan, fuel leak somewhere around the tank. The brakes are garbage but "work", seems to be a weeping caliper. Other than needing a bit of maintenance, she's a runner. Fires up every time without issue, idles well also.
      Has a few period correct goodies and some near mint 16" BBS RCs(?) on it with brand new Continentals. Corrado front buckets in mint black leather. The whole car needs a good scrubbing, including the headliner which is beyond gross and moldy, but I believe that will clean up with some AP cleaner and magic erasers. The seats and door cards need cleaned and treated. There are two cracks in the dash, but that's it. Everything works from the blower under the dash (though noisy), the electric windows and even the electric mirrors.

      The P.O. started putting the German flag inspired pinstripe vinyl on, but couldn't decide if he liked it or not so he never finished it. I have enough vinyl to do both sides and I likely will.

      Enough jibber jabber, on to the pics:

      Stripe off, back in the shop getting ready for tear down. Paint for the outside, bay and motor are coming sooner than I anticipated. Ordered all new rubbers for the windows, doors, sunroof and hatch. Gonna leave it white but with a touch of pearl to it. Engine will be flat black, all the accessories will be gloss black.

      WHen the po removed the molding, it took some paint with it...hence the stripe.

      I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry. And that's extra scary to me, because there's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run. He's fuzzy. Get outta here!

      Thank you. It's already had a ton of maintenance performed just to get it road worthy. Engine will be coming out for a refresh. 200k miles on a stock 16v, it's time. Not really doing anything major to it as far as power goes, just making it reliable.

      Hey guys,

      I'm doing some spring cleaning and ran across some Golf/Jetta Bentley manuals. Anyone need a MK2, MK3, or MK4 shop manual?
      The paper backs have both had a little humidity damage, but they are both still perfectly usable.
      The hardback MK3 manual is in great shape.

      I don't mind shipping them if you aren't in the Huntsville area. I'll meet in the middle for shipping cost.

      MK2 paperback: $40
      MK3 hardback: $50
      MK4 paperback: $40
