Thatís it for now with the pics . So to update I had to swap brakes over to vectra brakes for 14Ē wheels to fit and it just escalated. I couldnít open the bolts that hold the g60 brake adapters so I just swapped over the complete hubs after I refurbished the suspension

Like I said, I was just curious.

Building a garage takes time, but you will love it afterwards. I know I was extremely happy when mine was finished.

Our garage is filled with diesel VWs...

My KINGDOM for a garage!!!


Oh, I don't have a Kingdom.  Guess I will never get that garage. 

The one that was originally built as part of my house was converted before I bought the place.  It was small and wouldn't be worth trying to put it back the way it was.  Single, small in the original build. 
Looking to add fender trim, LED lights and a bumper push to the truck soon.

I had wanted a garage for years....

I should have bought stock in car covers when I didn't have a garage.

My 79 that my wife and I basically rebuilt from the ground up and restored had to sit outside for a few years after completed. I cringed at every storm and winter....

So yeah, a garage is nice!! Except when a tree falls on it....

Non-turbo 1.6 injection pump, non-turbo 1.6 metal lines, 3 1.6 vacuum pumps, typical rabbit/gof/jetta turbo exhaust manifold, 6 injectors (no way to tell what they are from without pop-testing - even the bar rating on the sides will not let you know for sure), 1.6TD blow-off valve, 1.6TD downpipe, 1.6TD intake manifold.  The exhaust manifold and the downpipe (and maybe injectors) are the only useful parts for an AAZ.  Other parts are potentially useful on a 1.6/1.6TD.

The pump was not from a GTD (intercooled 1.6TD sold in other markets).  It clearly has no boost enrichment.  It might have been from a 1.6ECOdiesel which is worse than a 1.6 non-turbo pump.
