After looking at and touching this car every day for the past 7 months, she'll be out of sight for about 2 weeks. The PO had the car re-sprayed back in 97 or so and was never put back together. Since the car sat around for so long, time took its toll and a few bumps here and there (nothing seroius) have led me to have the entire top surface and passenger side re-done. I have a new sunroof panel and brand new OE hood that will take care of the serious problems. Hopefull my paint and body guy will have it done in under two weeks so I have time to put the car back together for Carlisle (we're leaving May 2!!).
Anywho, though you guys might get a kick out of seeing the car in its current state...

I'm going to replace it with the brand new OE VW rear bumper that is sitting in storage. I have a brand new front one as well, in case that beat up cover ain't cuttin' it for ya...

Yup. It's kinda cheap-ish (it IS a Fiat part), but it looks way cooler than the stocker. Well worth the money! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Weaver, you focker. Stole my yellow fogs...

I don't need pop-outs - I have A/C.
I like the pop-outs, but they remind me of an old bug or a mini-van. Just something else to squeak.
Between my roommate, myself and our neighbor with the turbo Civic, I think the whole neighborhood gets PLENTY of us all week long. Good thing my roommate's doin' (or TRYING to do) the assistant manager of our leasing office

It's actually a German dental mirror. Very small and stealthy. I'm sure the mk3 guys will eat them up faster than I can get them into the country. Sooooo Euro

Are you going to to flareless ?
Looks like a future PVW cover car http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
