    Got some work done to my car today, not as much as I wanted to. Thought I had everything I needed but didn't, so had to do a second p-n-p run today and after that I was burnt out for the day. But the first time I went I scored a Non Ac heater box.


    Dan is hooking me up with the control panel, I need to redo the foam and get a new heater core. Also going to try to track down a deep glove box and passenger under dash tray.

    I installed my hood lifts today and put my new badge on.

    wait.. you put a Jetta CL badge on your car? You're doing this because you want to make it look lower spec than it is? This seems backwards

    Yeah, why not? I was getting some parts from a guy and he through it in for $5 bucks, something different. I wouldn't know what trim level you would consider my car now anyway?

    Just won a auction for a NRG short hub and Gen 2 Quick Release for $150. Wanted it, one for the added security and two the combo is a little taller than the MOMO hub so my steering wheel be a little closer to me.

    Just scored a deep euro non ac passenger under dash tray. You can fit Bentley manual in it.

    Nice. Sounds like the M5 glovebox. That thing is freaking huge!

    One thing to watch out for on the heater controls...I think the A/C cars may have an extra fan position, so you might have a little wiring to do if the plugs are different. I don't know if there is any difference between motors. I seem to recall my '86 GL (non-A/C) only having a 3 position fan, while the GLi (A/C) had 4 (1 through 3 & defrost).

    You are correct ac is four position and the fan is different, luckily I grabbed the complete wire harness for it So all I should have to do is unpin the power wire on the old switch and pin it in to the new switch.

    My deep non ac under dash tray came today and I scored a minty dash from p-n-p for $30.


  21. #196
    Please keep an eye out for a Scirocco dash...I know...if you ever see one in the yard.

    Even one with a few cracks would make me happy.
