If you decide not to use it I can pick it up when I come over to get the hood frame

Looking good, I like the early 4 spoke wheel and td5 dash.
nice to see a quality touches coming together, having to choke down some serious garage envy though.

Sounds good to me....and if you don't take then Alex can have it......turns out the Warn 9.5 XP winch won't fit unless i modify the mounting plate so it's out....unless it goes on my new parts truck

Got the dash from a friend in Canada....think I can get 1 more but there not cheap.....it came with complete 300 TDI wiring looms, fusebox, heater and lots of misc. part....no hardware and missing a couple components to make it complete but was I was able to find them....and now that the parts truck is here it shouldent be to hard to finish "finding" what I need...

------ Follow up post added August 9th, 2010 09:14 PM ------

So I have a crazy story about the parts truck I just picked up.... bought it a couple weeks ago and it was scheduled to arrive shortly thereafter but didn’t end up getting here till last Friday, at 5:30 am....and that Friday just happen to be my GF birthday.... so after a cup of coffee, off we went to check her out... Everything seemed to be in order and when I drove it off the truck everything seemed fine. Engine was real strong and pulled pretty well. So I decided to go for a cruise. After about a mile and a half down the road my GF says to me “is that smell coming from this thing” so I slowed down a little and puff. The cab filled with smoke, I slammed on the brakes, shut her down and pulled over. GF jumped out and I tried to pop the hood and snap. The hood release cable broke…. So I jumped out and gave a quick look underneath and oil was everywhere….. muffler smoking like hell…You guessed it…Oil cooler line burst and was spraying oil all over the exhaust manifold and pipe. Luckily the smoke died down then stopped so we hitched home to get my truck to tow her back. Washed her off with the Hotsy and in the garage she went. Crazy hun? Soooooo glad she didn’t go up in flames, that would have sucked losing all the parts I’m after in only a couple miles of getting to know her.

Dude, seriously? You are one lucky guy! I think you owe your girlfriend a day at the spa for her incredible sense of smell. That could have ended up on ECR's Car-B-Que page. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise the cable broke. I read anecdotal stories about how you are not suppose to open the hood in case of an engine fire-it just creates a draft and adds oxygen to the fire and make it worse. Glad everything is OK.

Sending you a PM about Barrys hood and the bumper

Well I finnaly found some time to work on #2 again after a great trip to Alaska fishing... I got the rear door and mantec tire carrier on, as well as the ECR LED tail lights. The turbo still needs to get ceramic coated, and I need to figure out how to install the oversized intercooler, but im waiting till my new rad shows up (anyone have any ideas on this?) I have been looking at a lot of other installs but still not sure what i'm going to do.... take a look.....

I also got my parts truck (the stepchild) running and driving so that has quenched my urge to get #2 back together for now, but I still need to find time to work on it.
