Postby Jesse_James » Wed Jun 20, 2012 5:30 am

Darrels, Larrys are pretty much the only ones i can think. Look in the shop info section.

Are they gone, or just battery tray?

expect to pay 600-1000

Just patch it with sheet metal and call it good.

Yea thats crossed my mind for sure but i want it to be perfect im still undecided what i want to do with it i only bought it for 400 bucks running and all and i intended on making a baja plus someone already cut it up in the rear but after the car show i really would like to do a volksrod just trying to figure out where to start is the challenge if im gonna go that right id like to go ahead and do the floor pans u know what i mean. It seems like you are pretty good with vws have u ever done a volksrod o know what it takes to get it there and i really appreciate all the info your givin me its been a huge help to me after all this is my first vw and ive fell in love with em

Well a volksrod and perfection usually dont go hand in hand :) I would just patch it, then spend your $$$ on things like engine and brakes. After you enjoy it for a while, then you can go back through the minor points.
