 Damn, that might be larger than my collection.
 Nice to find the windshield wiper relays with the adjustable delay, and stick them in the old rabbits.
They all have 53S near the center post.

 I see some plugs too. Is there a MK4 MAP sensor plug. Not sure what one looks like right now.
I want to put a VNT-15 on my AHU rabbit project and need to repin to the plug to the later MAP sensor.

 The MK2 light switch is a keeper. They seem to go bad often.

How does one even accumulate that kind of a collection?  Did you used to visit the junk yard on a regular basis?

Not sure if I even need any of those, yet.  Seems like as soon as I pass on stuff like this I need it. 

At least I know where I can get it.

Local mechanic retiring, guy threw out very little. He was a VW mech in Europe but didn't like it here so he puts a full hoist in his garage and does cash jobs through word mouth for 2 decades, accumulates spares. I got a few stacks of belts from him, some early body parts, couple of pumps.. he worked on diesels primarily.

He drives Toyotas now.

I am wondering if any of those plugs will fit the MK2 gauge cluster.  Then it could be wired to the MK1 version and be that much nicer of an upgrade mod.

Any idea?

Early MK2s had 2 plugs on the cluster, later, CE2 clusters used one plug.

 I think I have plenty of relays for now, but appreciate the offer and I hope you find a good home for them,
find someone that needs them.
 I'm not actually sure what a MK4 MAP sensor plug looks like. Still learning the MK4 TDIs.
When I find out I'll look through the pictures again.
