so i bought a diesel mk2.  B)

the previous owner lied a lot about its condition, except that it didn't have any rust of notice.

but everything else was fucked, but the interior.  it was nice, and i like blue and tweed like materials.  

since then, i've replaced or rebuilt or reconditioned a lot of things on the car.  it's been cool to talk with buddies about it, and spend some time with people other than myself, as my job just keeps me out on the road all day by myself.  :wub:  i kinda talk to myself a lot, and i get boring after a short period of time.  B)

i got rid of all the old shit up front, but managed to mangle some brake hard lines on the rear, fuck up a couple bolts, and not realize i had a non adjustable tie rod on the drivers side. der.  B)

i did reseal and generally help quiet down the interior of the cabin though, by pulling the dash, taking care of my heater core, radio wiring, and rebuilding the heaterbox and odometer while it was all out.  fucked up my front speakers, too!  ^_^

so, i did stuff, and i'm happy to just fuck around and wrench and do stupid shit every now and again.  i did end up pulling the frame on this thing to get it real straight, because i didn't pay attention to why the panel gaps would be so out of alignment in the first place.  duhhh  :D

so here's some of the shit we reconditioned and powdered and put on.  feel free to point out the flaws and general bullshit job that we are doing. it's good to have buddies around.  :D

i'm just kinda stoked knowing that at the end of this, i'll have a nice, tidy little runner to fuck around in, until my next ship comes close enough to swim to.   :wub:

yeah, doods. i'm pretty happy with this one, which is why that comb is so finely tooth-ed.

gotta get some more rear hardlines that i fucked up, a bolt or two that stripped out/stretched, and an adjustable tie rod in this week, before the girlfriend gets back from europe. then the vw days will get dark for a while. :blush:

fightin' is the name of the game, sand-o.  :P

anybody know what the hell this might be? coming out of the subframe at an unused hole.  the balls are smaller than bb's, and it's really greasy.  ideas?

because it was...
i took it to a local joint with some good doods, and it's all straight now.  but i gotta get it on the road before i put the front end back on it.  it was a good inch or so in the vertical direction off from driver side to passenger side, and a degree or three off from front to back... but the panels all line up now, and the roof dent is practically gone.  :)
