Congratulations on the success! I am still chipping away at mine. At this point I still need 1-2 expensive things and I really want to get it repainted and get the floorpan repaired prior to putting the engine in there so I have to save up for that. You wouldn't happen to know any body folks in the area would you?

Thanks!
I have two ideas for you for body work...(although with all the recent hail it may be hard to find someone with time). I know Jeff and his brothers from car star. (Call the one off Santa Fe and c470). And if school was in session I'd refer you to warren tech (close to you) and maybe the students could take on that work (that may require trust--misplaced perhaps )

You could have cleaned it and tried to get the sticker square at least

^^^yup...I sure could've...thx
Isn't a big priority right now with two littluns running around and me getting a minute here and there to get keep things moving forward....

Got the engine cover on
(Think I'm gonna try and paint the logo and tdi white down the line) but for now it's on along with the grille

The PO resprayed the car with something that's not quite alpine white. So every time I add new exterior work/paint
It doesn't quite match up. So the two grille trim pieces are just plastidip for now until there's a reason to do everything with a new color (probably not until I have a bigger garage). This car lives in the alley with tree sap and pollen and it's already been hit twice where it sits over the years. No mattter how closely I put it against the house I still worry as larger vehicles roll thru the alley. At least the first hit and runner left a note(can't say the same thing about the second)

Now you need to get yourself a green stant gas cap that says "Diesel" on it...

btw, where did you find the diesel sticker? I need to get one of those...

X2 for the sticker question....

Glad to see that you got this on the road. I don’t recall the last time I saw an A2 in the wild. I think they’re more scarce than A1s.

Hey there
I'm fairly certain I got the sticker on eBay
But I couldn't find it just now. And I even looked in my purchase history. Sorry guys!

Mk2s are scarce--especially ones that aren't complete beaters. Mk1s do seem to be floating around some.

Yeah, my dad did a tour of warren tech through the company he works for and suggested them. The guy in charge is really bad at getting back to me. He said they aren't doing full cars right now, only parts. I told him that I am fine taking individual parts off and giving them to him to work on since the car doesn't drive regularly and lives in the garage. But he hasn't responded to that. I have heard of Car Star and have called them, but I'm not sure it was the correct one. I have nothing but time with this car. I would like to know how much it would end up costing me so I know how much to save. I am also very capable of getting all trim off and getting it as prepped as possible to save me some money but I don't typically get good replies from people when I say that.

Looks like you might have gotten it from ECStuning or from VW directly, since it's a real VW decal.
