Thanks man! I'll be getting back in the garage this afternoon to hopefully complete the passenger side upgrades. Still waiting for a few parts to come in.In for updates! It's awesome to see what you're doing here and I'm sure the end result will be amazing!
PS sorry to hear about your mom, hopefully your parents can really enjoy the car once you're done with it.
Sorry about your parents, it's been a really difficult period and I have tons of empathy for anyone who's gone through a similar thing.Rawk:
Nice! Sorry about your folks! It's tough to see your parents get older and/or sick. Both my folks died since 2016. Took care of my mom for 3 years.
I never worry about price if it's something "special" and this is! Get that car back to it's prime and give it to your folks. They'll never forget it! My mom gave me the deposit to get my Jetta and I've completely restored/tuned it since then. It also got hit by a motorcycle and the kid got killed.(drunk) So saving it was REALLY important for me. Glad I did.
ECS Tuning and German Auto Parts have everything for older VWs. Older VWs are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice man! Looks so much better with the headlights cleaned up. I'm saving the detailing for last but can't wait to get these headlights polished. They are literally yellow and I'n not going for the French'd look hahaIn for updates, love seeing an old car getting a refresh.
I'll plug the kit that I've used on several cars, including my Mk4, to polish out the headlights. 3M Ultra (PN 39195), $17 on Amazon.

I'll bet that you probably had a large inventory of coil packs and window regulators sitting in your garage waiting to go into action.VW's have been a big part of my family for years. At one point around 2000 I had a new MK4 GTI VR6, my Dad had a Jetta VR6 and my mom a MK3.5 Cabrio.
Yes, I've used this on my MK2 before to do the front bearings. You can do it while the knuckle is still on the car and you don't need an overhead press.
