            Have not done the chains yet. I plan to finally go through the list of records the PO gave me and see what has all be done. Chains don't make any weird noise on start up so they appear to be fine now. Still on factory clutch which I'll expect that to go somewhat soon ish and will do the chains and stuff all at once when the trans is out.

              Yeah, like I've never experienced a chain/guide failure in a VR, but a 2.8L (12v) vr is cheap if you destroy it. A 3.2, not so much.

                Regardless of the chains sounding good, if they havent been done or you dont have proof they were done, get them done ASAP. It's a must to ensure that thing keeps going.

                        It's gotten a lot better since I vacuum'd like 20 lbs of ash out of the car.. Normally I wouldn't buy a car from a smoker, but cigar is not as bad as cigarette imo. Plus I got the car for a steal so I can't really complain.

                          Totally Jelly. It seems that i have a thing for MKIV VWs.

                          Any definite plans for this beast?

                            I say leave the chrome bit, and take #0 steel wool to it and while wet scrub it left to right, it'll come out like brushed aluminum, could look cool. Either way, nice ride.

                            Also, for cleaning smoke smell. "Tuff Stuff" foaming cleaner everything- carpet, seats, headliner, pillars, etc Really scrub it and then shop vac it. Then close the windows and doors and douse everything with ozium air cleaner/ freshener. Let it sit for a while letting the ozium sink in, then open the windows and go for a windy ride. Should smell much, much better.

                              Nothing much. Needed new shocks so ordered Koni Yellows. May eventually get the ground control coil over conversion set up at some point (next year earliest). Since it's the daily I wanted a decent sound system in it so I have an amp/sub already and have a good double din and all the stuff to wire everything up on order too. Probably going to see if my green rotas fit (17's) and if they do they'll get painted white and be the summer wheel.. That's really it though.

                              Thanks for the suggestions. I have a few friends who work for Stanley Steamer so I'm going to see what they can do for me on the cheap.
