It's been a busy couple of weeks for me got my breaks done motor is in and wired up and seats in. And got the steering done. If that isn't enough I also fired it up and went for a first test drive and first ever driving a VW ever. I would have done this years ago if I knew how fun they are. I know after this weekend I prolly pissed off every neighbor. On to the pics and bids soon to come
