OK, technically I just borrowed it. I got so depressed watching it sit and accumulate bird poop and tree sap that I had to act. I tossed in a new battery I had in stock and took it for a spin around the block and then gave the thing it's first bath in months. There was noting I could do about the surface rust developing on some shinny bits, but maybe I slowed it down. BTW, it sure wants to be driven, it still runs strong.

if you're talking about those #$%^# backup lights, there's nothing you can do about those - those are cheap offshore repros of old VW lights. holding the place until I can find a pair of real German lights (I've got one, but haven't put it on yet.)

Did you notice any surging at medium throttle? that's the main reason I haven't tried to drive it home yet.

Only drove it around the block and did not notice. You have some new rust on the rear bumper, trim rings and BU lights are history.

The trim rings are yours off that red bullet nose, I have new stainless ones to try :)
