Wrapped the rear speaker wires in wire tubing. Vac'd out all the dirt and sand. Ran a gas tank vent hose. Amazing how much vacuum was on the tank after sitting for little over a week.
Getting her ready for a combo birthday/family reunion next weekend.

Saturday had to jury rig the coil and an air cleaner at my family reunion. Self tap sheet metal screw for coil bracket and one of the acorn nuts for one of the air cleaners fell off some where in transit. Used zip ties to attach both. Never leave home w/o zip ties.. Cool

The VW gods were kind to you. Ask Dan Jones what happened to him.

No doubt perrib. I thought the same since I was 50+ miles from home and that was my transportation and was alone except for my trusty dog and co-pilot Ozzy.

So how 'bout it Dan?

Yesterday I the clutch broke and had to drive the 6 miles home with no clutch in traffic! Turns out the bolt I had replaced the pin through the clutch pedal with (lost the pin) had worn out and broken in 2. Replaced it with apin from another set I had an everything is good this morning.
