I wish my Mk3 engine looked that nice. Black plastic cam covers and intake manifolds may save money and weight, but have no soul compared to cast aluminum.

Any idea whether that stuff would bolt up to a Mk3 head? I normally give a higher priority to performance over appearance, but might even reverse that for the pleasure of seeing something that attractive under my hood.

Plugged 4 possible leaks in a tire. has two screws, 1 rivet, and 1 staple.

Good thing for swimming pools and was able to dunk test the tire after filling it up and check for leaks.

This past winter was a *****. I put my poor car into the ditch at a pretty good speed after an ice storm. Well, I finally got around to painting my replacement bumper cover and fender. Tomorrow they get attached.

I am not a fan of stone guard! Had to weld up a hole that was became obvious when I wire wheeled off the stone guard on the driver’s side rocker panel and there was nothing behind it. The stuff also did not adhere well to the factory metal. It had peeled off, exposing the steel which then rusts.

I got a little too heavy with the second coat of clear and put a run in it. I’ll wet sand that eventually.

Replaced manual window regulator. Crank handle came off in my hand a while ago. For anyone going to a yard to pick one up, apparently sedan and hatch regulators aren't interchangeable.
