Even though the engine ran great, the compression was 115-105-100-70. Which tells me it needs a rebuild. Plus, when I was taking the plugs out to do the compression test, I found the #2 plug was cross-threaded and was barely in at all. I did not want to try the put the plug back in like that, so, there needs to be some "thread restoration" Probably something I will tackle over the winter.

Here is the wheel wheel and fender undersides undercoated. I used a rubberized, paintable style. It should do a good job protecting the car. Since the car will be driven daily, (weather permitting) I wanted to prevent chips and rock dents.
The fenders installed, with fender beading. One giant leap forward!

Been a slow road with the vw, my hopes of getting her done this year are pretty much out the window, but I will slowly plug away.
I got the steering column installed today, along with the directional switch. I know it is the wrong steering wheel, but I am using it as a place holder, if you will.
Here is the current "back dash" view. A few wires are starting arrive, got the cigarette lighter hooked up, too bad there is no battery. :)
