    Watch a Guy Turn an Old VW Jetta Into a Pickup Truck in Just 30 Minutes

    Smyth Ute Hey Andrew, I do have some pics, but no idea how to post them on here. I tried once (long ago) to post some and had no luck at all, so I didn't really try this time. I'll study up on postings and will put up the pics after paint, as it's a bit ugly right now.

    Smyth Ute in Raleigh Just finished my UTE on the first of May (started first week in April) Donor is an '01 TDI (265K) totaled for rear end damage As far as structural integrity, the conversion is built like a fortress.

    Did this come from the car?

    Sub Mat It looks like it may have come from the heavy mat UNDER the floor mat. It also goes up behind the dash to provide sound deadening between the engine bay and the cockpit. It would be a very convenient and close source for an industrious mouse.

    Intermittent windshield wipers

    Wipers stop mid swipe I have an '03 as well, and my wipers will stop while operating. I get them to restart by going to the fastest speed, or going to the wash position (so far no one seems to have noticed that I am washing the windows in the rain). There are times when I have to push it into...

    900 miles!

    Thousand mile tank Hey Roman: Yes it is possible ! I've had more 1000 mile tanks than I can count. My '03 has sprint nozzles, 205/70 Hydroedges, and .681 5th gears. I drive @ 60 mph (1800 RPM w/.681), and the 205/70's puts the speedo spot on. When the light comes on you have 2 gallons left...

    Bio Hey Dan: Any confirmation from BioJoe? NCRoadWarrior's report was encouraging, but as he noted, it is better to get the news from the Boss. Thanks, Bob

    I've got to know, anyone getting 60MPG in town with multiple high mileage tanks??

    Inaccurate SG II I have a Scangage that is INACCURATE! It does not recognize that I am off the pedal (9999) until the RPM's get down to less than 1100 Rpm, thus I get a different adjustment factor every tank, based on the time I am off the pedal, i.e. more accurate in highway driving and much...
