I'm forever busy with family commitments but a good GTG would take priority. Our 2003 Beetle is in need of a refresh and lots of attention, it just turned 200k. Probably time-due for a TB as well.
My '94 Audi Cabriolet AFN swap has been stalled for a few years due to a move and health. Got everything to do it just need time, ability and space. I just had hip surgery 3 weeks ago, hopefully PT goes well or I'll be having back surgery after the first of the year.

Hopefully the Beetle won't need another oil pan!

I thought I was the only one having issues with cracked oil pans, that goes to show you how great our bay area roads are.

Mine was memorable, I did it on a test drive after some guru work at a GTG!(I think it was the last part of an ESP retrofit)

Luckily it was on day one of a 2 day GTG, David and Ashlee brought me an oil pan, and Aaron made his easiest skid plate sale ever.

Yep, I remember you pulling in after a chow run (IIRC) and while a bunch of us were talking, I noticed a fluid flowing out from under the car. You’d taken a speed bump a little fast.

That sounds about right. It was raining so torrentially hard that I misjudged the speed bump around the corner from where we were.



I had made it 8 years without a skidplate at that point, with the only mishap being my wife dislodging the intercooler hose once.

I've had a total of 3 with skid plates on the car, I could not figure it out why, up until I saw one of the oil pan got hit right close to the oil plug on the bottom flat part, and the culprit was actually the skid plate (Flaw)that little plate that you take out to be able to change the oil, got an aluminium bar plate across and when skid plate is hit from the bottom it pushes that little plate hard towards oil pan cracking it, so if you have that little plate pls take it out and skid plate now would not be a lemon.

I did make it out there one year, day trip from Boston. First flight out, red-eye home. It was a lot of fun. But GTGs are a thing of the past now, pretty much. Kirk Blackmore has one in Grand Rapids in a couple weeks, I'm going to that. And Peter and Julie had a GTG at the Ho5G at New Year's, but I'm not certain they'll continue with that.

I spent a lot of time in the early years of running IDParts going to GTGs, traveling to Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Ohio, and lots of other places. It was a lot of fun. But time marches on.

I know exactly what piece your talking about. I bought an old used skid plate off a fellow member here and it has that piece on it. Its been on the car for a few months now. Taking it off tonight! Thank you!
