    Two coats of silver on the block and the EM is on. I think we’re getting close to yanking the 7A.

          Paint looks great. Now I can't decide between silver or black

            Thanks. When I was trying to decide, the black examples I saw were too glossy. Chose silver so I could spot leaks easier. That could turn out to be a bad decision...lol.

              I would source a new one of these it will leak looking at how perished it looks bud, hard to find new and second hand will be old and porous too. Roose motorsport in the UK do good replacements I'm sure you will find a company more local to you

                Yeah, I think I'll order the one from 034 here in the states. Need to also get a couple of their exhaust gaskets that go on either side of the expansion piece between the WG and DP. Thanks for the reply.

                  Kind of stuck until I can find time to head to a buddy’s shop to use his sand blast cabinet. I suppose I could put the car on jack stands and start disassembling it.

                  Managed to get a few small things done.

                  Serviced the injectors


                  Received a couple 3B S2 hoses




                  And I feel like I’ve spent a small fortune on new hardware. Got a bunch of Norma hose clamps and this is my second batch of fasteners.

                    Sand blasting done on these and a box of misc engine parts. Need to go buy some paint, but they came out looking so nice, I kind of want to leave them raw.

                      Not much progress of late. It seems that an S2 3B oil return line is hung up in customs on its journey from the Germany. Been there since 2/5.

                      Got a couple colors picked out for powder coating...looking forward to that.

                      Got a question for everyone. Has anyone ever mated the updated metal 7A breather pipe with the rest of the stock 200 3B breather system? It seems that only the first 6 inches or so of the rubber hose is the part that gets mushy. The rest seems pretty good. Here’s a pic of the pieces lined up.



                      I would buy the 034 silicone pieces, but I’m getting killed by all the $150-200 purchases that I’ve been making.

                        Feel like I’m starting to make some headway. Got a bunch of parts painted today.







                        And some of them even made it on the engine.

                            Thanks!

                            Customs held my oil return pipe for almost a month, but it finally showed up. While the heat shield for Error404 made it in 3 days. lol



                            Also found a manual HVAC from a B4 Cabriolet. Seems the salvage yard lost the knobs and trim piece though. If anyone has those, please let me know.



                            And I’m starting to mock up the cooling system. My donor 3B didn’t come with a hardline for the heater piping. Instead, it had this setup and the after run pump was removed/bypassed.



                            So, I am doing something similar, but with new hoses. Anyone see any issues with how I have the after run pump plumbed and mounted?





                            Also mocking up the oil return so I can modify the oil pan extension.

                              I’m pretty sure I have a set of heater knobs and a facia.

                                Thanks. I’m gonna try to contact them on Monday to see if they can find the missing pieces. But I’ll send you a PM if needed.
