Super stoked you’re super stoked Tom!!!
Today was all about your sunroof. All moving parts lubed with dry molly for super awesome slickness.
New cables slipped into the guides rails. Bit of foam pad on the bottom side of the rails like VW did it.
Sourced a couple parts from the KCW junkyard.
Front sunroof adjusters needed a good bit of love to get freed up.
All the bits back together. Sunroof works super awesome!!!
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantJanuary 12, 2023 at 9:00 amPost count: 2933Pat KParticipantJanuary 11, 2023 at 6:32 pmPost count: 2933
Worst set of sunroof rails I’ve had the pleasure of fixing up.
Three rounds of sanding, followed by scotch bright to get them back to good.
Sunroof cable guides were all pissed off. Had to dip them in the parts washer to get the old cables to release.
Stretched vinyl over the headliner cover panel.
All of the bits and pieces are ready to go for sunroof assembly.

^^^ I agree! Great call Tom!
Anti-rattle bumpers and felts installed.
Save all of the packaging. Plastic bags opened up work great for vapor barriers.
Thought we had a new Ivory passenger side armrest in the stash. Turned out to be a left side.
Used an OG one for mock up. New one on the parts list.
OG handles and escutcheons. First sit cleaned up nicely.
Drivers door complete. Passenger side will have to wait for an new arm rest.
Sunroof is next on the list.

Blue German square weave carpet laid over rear fender wells and parcel tray.

Thanks. Super happy with the headliner.
Installed retro sound deadener where it was missing the OG in the rear quarters. OG style from Wolfsburg West over the rear parcel area.
Trimmed the fender well pieces to fit. Ill wait for the carpet kit to arrive to make sure it will cover before gluing in the padding.
Door assembly up next.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantJanuary 5, 2023 at 6:26 pmPost count: 2933Pat KParticipantJanuary 5, 2023 at 6:36 amPost count: 2933Pat KParticipantJanuary 5, 2023 at 6:22 amPost count: 2933
