Well, I didn't find all my oil filter wrenches, but I am bringing a set of A/C gauges if anyone wants to do a system checkup.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to miss this one. I need to deal with some issues with our house in Moneta. I'm hoping to have a GTG in Front Royal in the near future. I'm truly bummed out. I was really looking forward to seeing everyone.

And you'll see as many or more on 95 in MD north of B-more...they are everywhere marked and unmarked.

For those coming from the north...I always take 295 in NJ (from 195 and the NJ TP) as it saves a few $ in tolls and you can hit CHEAP priced diesel at the Flying J exit 2c (one can gain access from the NJ TP as well after the southern toll entrance...1st exit beyond. There is a Pilot and Flying J...Flying J always .02 cheaper. :p) I've used this fuel for many tanks and miles...

Sad to miss this event. My manifold won't be seen at the dyno either as it will take custom plumbing to get it going.

Garage sale

Would anyone be interested in:
a pair of black velour heated Jetta front seats (no headrests)
front bumper rebar (metal part under the plastic cover)
pair of rhino ramps
spare oil pan with the sensor for ALH

The seats have been out of my car for a couple years and in climate controlled storage. The bumper rebar is from when I installed headlight washers years ago. It has also been sitting in storage. These parts have been taking up too much space in my storage rental and I'll never put them back on my car or use the extra pair of ramps. I have the ramps in my car and I'll bring them tomorrow, but the other parts I'd need to have prior notice of interest before I lug them to Impex.

If the seats will fit a 99 Golf, I'll take them.

I will be looking for someone who has dealt with the driver's side door lock cylinder retainer to help me get mine back the way it should be. I apparently knocked it out of where it should be when I was replacing the cylinder a few weeks ago. I don't know if it will be necessary to open up the door or if it makes more sense to "fish" for the retainer with some sort of a magnetic tool. I didn't want to mess with opening the door up myself as I feared I would mangle things in some fashion without guidance.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and bringing a tray of German potato salad to go with the brats, pretzels and beer tomorrow.

First, does anyone plan to have a reflex silver touch-up pen on hand (or one I could buy/borrow)?

Second, with regard to the cops...it's real simple. They usually don't pull you over until you exceed the speed limit by 15 or more mph. So usually 14 mph over is a safe one. Every now and again, they will pull you over for 10 or more...so if you want to be on the really safe side..no more than 9mph over the limit. I have cops in the family...both county and state...I just wish they would have told me this when I was in my late teens/early 20s...would have avoided a lot of insurance money...but my record is clean now...so that is worth something.

Don't know how long I will be able to hang...but see you guys at the fest around noonish.

Just got back, couldn't stay all day. Took my camera, but didn't take any pictures.
Beautiful day for a GTG. Met up with Tomo. chudzikb, paramedic and a few others.

Highlight for me was going for a ride in G60ING's SLC-TDI Corrado. Frank did a fantastic job with the A4 swap, looks factory and pulls like a train on the road. Thanks for the ride Frank, maybe just maybe I will start working on my Corrado to get it back on the road. Just have to fix the oil leaks in the passat first.

Thanks to all who put in the effort each year to make this happen!

Sorry I couldn't get down this time. Doing the fuel filter and oil change in the home garage, with the knowledge I picked up at the last event.

Great GTG! Thanks to MoGolf and and PeterV my lock cylinder is staying in the door like it should now. Unfortunately Impex was out of the bulb I needed for the heat/AC controls and by the time my door was fixed it was too late to order more. I guess that will wait til another time. Great seeing everyone again. I am looking forward to our next GTG.

Yeah, I couldn't make it either. I am in the middle of packing up and moving, and I couldn't really get away.

Not moving far - I am still in the area, so I will see you at another GTG sometime soon.

Lito, Awesome Impexfest!!!! Unbelievable... there must have been 75 cars, maybe even 100... Did anyone count?

The food was spectacular, there was a breakfast spread for early, and the lunch barbeque, burgers, dogs, brats, and incredible barbeque chicken breasts... not to mention the amazing shrimp platter... to just mention a few of the wonderful delectibles.

Thanks to all the folks that helped with woriking on the cars. I was truly amazed by how many people jumped in and helped other folks that were trying to fix a variety of things. A special thanks to Nick for helping me change my struts... I couldn't have done it without your help... and Oliver for letting me borrow some wrenches cause I didn't have enough... and Bill for the spring compressor and the Metal Nerd top Strut wrench... and... and... and ... all the other that I watched and learned sooooo much from...


:) Have you guessed yet??? I had a great time... and so did my son Tristan...

Thanks to all... Oh... and thanks to Jeff... oh my gosh.... my car is really quick now.... oh my gosh... I thought the PP520's gave it a bump.... but that was nothing compared to the map that Jeff did... WOW!!!
