    Here's the contact info for the driveshaft place. Looks like you're only about 40 minutes away. Have you ever been to any of the local euro cars and coffee? I think the next one is in March. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    You could probably remove the sensor and bring it into Napa and get a brass fitting / plug... Probably. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I'd be willing to bet this leads to it. If you don't plan to keep it you could either pull the sensor and plug the port or just snip the wire at the base of the sensor and leave it in place. Or fix the gauge. Either way, I would trace it back to confirm before messing with it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    If this is what you are asking about it looks like an aftermarket temperature sender wire. Do you have an extra temp gauge? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Wow. I have no real input other than, im rooting for you, good luck and definitely following this project! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Im interested in how the night shades & paint tests turn out. I polished up my rear lenses and they turned out great but slightly different colors. I've removed nightshades off of smooth acrylic with acetone. It worked pretty well. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. This evening I welded the hella driving light brackets on to the bumper mounts. I'll let the paint cure over night before I install them. BTW, does anyone happen to know the size bolt needed to hold the bumper to the car off the top of their head? I removed them over a year ago and can't seem to locate them now.

  9. Nice! I guess I need to start getting the vin shots on the rarities. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. If I see it around again I'll snap a pic of the vin for you [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Unfortunately I was a couple hundred feet away when he pulled up. We immediately made our way over to It but the owner had slipped away into the crowd by the time we got to it.It was super clean. The first touring I've seen in person! One more shot of it Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. Woke up early this morning to go to caffeine and octane. Around 1000 cars and supposedly 15k spectators... Not a ton of vintage stuff though. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. How about some pictures of your car? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. I searched every thread and could not find any measurements. I went off of the pictures and eyeballed the first front and rear fender. From that I then took precise measurements to copy the placement on the opposite side of the car. I can provide measurements from my car if you would like. You need to cut the original fenderslips out first before attaching the vw fenders. And you do need to weld the inner and out wheel well pieces together in the rear. It's kind of a pain but it really isn't that bad. In my opinion, if you can afford a shop to do it all, I would. It does feel good to have done it myself but all in all I probably had 100 hrs just in metal work alone. All in awkward, uncomfortable back aching positions. But now it's over and I'm happy again [emoji16]. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Yes, you need 2 right rears and 2 left rears. Then you make relief cuts along the edges to make them fit right and weld the seams up. There are 2 videos of people doing the job on YouTube that pretty much made it possible for me to feel confident about doing it myself. If you can't find them I can post links.
