      Well, due to a bunch of unfortunate circumstances, I may have to let my baby go. I just don't have the time/money, and I am losing my house/garage in two months due to circumstances beyond my control and will not have space at our new place for it.

      The good

      Instantly recognizable, somewhat famous car
      For how bad these things rust, it's not too terrible
      Lots of new parts (see build thread)
      Comes with parts car for turbo diesel swap
      Comes with everything for 4speed manual swap
      Comes with two other sets of wheels, can include a partially finished set of BBS RS's for extra.

      The bad

      It has rust. Rockers, floors, fenders, etc. I have a replacement oem passenger fender
      Engine misfiring at idle due to low compression on cyl 3, comes with 82 300d that has a great turbo 5cyl in it
      RS axle started making Noise this weekend
      Interior sucks, I've given up trying to find one in a parts car around here.
      Lots of small things

      I paid a lot of money for this car and have put a lot into it. I'm not looking to recover anywhere near what I have into it. Probably looking for somewhere in the $3k-$4k range. Might entertain trades for a good condition MK4 TDI, but need the money more.

      Taps talk is being stupid, I'll have pics and links to the build threads up later.

      Sorry to hear about your situation
      Here's to hoping the right buyer comes along and brings new enthusiasm to the project

      No longer for sale, going into storage at a friends house until the time is right to start working on it again.
