Default GTG sounds great to me!

It's been a number of years since I've been to one and could certainly come up with things to do and/or give a hand to others.

Schedule can always be iffy but I'd make every effort

I have a list of projects... :-) Depends on timing, of course, but I'd be happy to participate.

Count me in, though there are a couple weekends where I already have tentative plans.

I'd show up and have a beer or two (depending on schedule).

Sounds great!

Pick a time or set up a poll with dates you are willing to host, whether in the new thread, linked out to surveyMonkey, whatever . . .

I'll show if timing works out for me.

I can have the aforementioned HubTamer (bearing puller), a VagCom cable (VCDS, whatever, I'm old school - I've recently caught the clue my usage may have become limited by RossTech, and if that's true, it may only be for use on older cars, apparently), B4/A3/A4 timing belt toolkit, and a few other tools along for anyone that wants to borrow . . .

Just bought from a Craigslist dealer a silver 2003 Jetta GLS Wagon in good shape with 145k miles. There was only one previous owner from the Minneapolis area. It's my first TDI and I'm very excited! I know its a long shot but I'd really like to find the original owner and say thanks for taking good care of it. By any chance does anyone recognize this car? Many thanks!

I have two cases (12 quarts) to part with in Blaine. I picked these up from Luther VW with one of the Dieselgate gift cards but now the car is gone.

Two cases $100 picked up in Blaine or St Paul Midway area during weekday lunch hours.

I used some headliner glue to spray it back up. It is no longer sagging... I didn't try to re-stretch it in a couple spots, so I can still see the headliner backing material in a couple places, but only if I'm trying to look for it. Otherwise, all-in-all, it's not sagging.

Here's the stuff I bought from amazon:

Anyone available to help a brother out this week? Need a VCDS to retract the cylinders on the rear brakes, tried to do it mechanically and I'm at my wits end. I am in Monticello Minnesota.

93SC, thanks a lot for the offer, but I got it! Duh , you have to rotate the cylinders as you're pushing them in.
