    I hope to redeem myself with the parkway project heading your way.  Maybe it will cleanse the palate?

    Been getting some conversion parts from Boxeer. Which means we can make some more progress. Power steering pump bracket is probably headed our way today. I need to get a 3.0 h-6 power steering pump now.

    Also been thinking about the new tablet type display. You guys should pick out whatever you like best. I’m thinking bigger is better? Probably mounted in the center of the dash or near the shifter.

    We usually use Apple products, will that run the software? I bet a normal size iPad would work.

    Yeah it’ll work on any devise. Bring one next time. We can do some mounting bracket research and/or make custom.

    We got a prototype power steering pump bracket and figured out that it fits a 06 tribeca pump.  I ordered a mkiv tdi fuel filter assembly, and subaru euro5 glow plugs yesterday…I got a second set of plugs for spares, because its going to be impossible to find replacement parts for this engine without ordering them from europe. About ready to fit the engine to the van. Maybe next week while Cole is here.

    The motor is hanging on the tranny!!!!!!!!!!! 😀  😀  😀  😀   For this to be ready for Baja… I think it needs to stay at the very tip top of the clean shop’s lists….. KB. we have a lot of mechanicals to figure out in the next 99 or so days… 😀

    I’m with you John! I feel like I’m at a VW show looking at all the custom water coolers!! I can tell they are “built” and custom, but I have no idea what I’m looking at!!! 😉  😉  😀

    I’m glad Pat is on it. Hes cleaning up the wiring.  Next on my list is to figure out all the supplies I’m going to need to modify the coolant connections, build a intake manifold, air filter, and exhaust. Its going to be fun. Bunch of fab.
