98 GTI. assload of miles. speedo works on and off. either needs a radiator or lower hose. all the ones i found at the JY were the same shape or missing. autozone said they didnt have it in stock but it would be in tonight . the rear brake line that is broke was lickily the ebrake line but the rotor was still destroyed. its got the whole konami code to get into first thing going on. needs new front shocks i think. vw shocks are weird and turn with the wheel? ill have pics up later. also going to have to re do the floor. probably should use metal but most likely going to use fiberglass.
