In other news if you have an 85 golf and the rear wiper relay burns out a #53 horn relay works just as well

Welp the pipe over the axle decided to rot out...Made a patch with exhaust tape and a clamp  in autozone parking lot but I really need to replace the whole setup as the rot is not looking pretty on the pipes...

Got tired of the old non/ac tentioner so I added a gear from a vw mk2 gas motor tension-er. Soooo much easier to tighten the belt now
