The rear seals have both been replaced but something is still leaking. I waited a full 24 hours before replacing the seals-letting the excess gear oil drain out (the garage smells great, btw).
I installed the plastic on the driver's side door and the door panels...but not before I cracked the top one in half. And I lost one of the screws and one of the white caps. While sitting in one place without moving. And the replacement Z arm rest is bent...which I didn't notice until it was installed. I lost two of the washers while attempting to line up the crooked Z arm rest on the mounting holes. And then, to top it all off the top plastic trim is broken. I figured that out when the two right clips wouldn't seat. After screwing with it for a few minutes I realized that it's not the clips, it's the plastic. And I forgot to put the spring over the regulator shaft before installing the top trim panel. It's been a great night overall. The car is still up on jack stands, the garage reeks and I've added quite a few broken parts to my collection. More NOS parts to the rescue!
At this point, I don't think this car is going to make the short trek to the local VW show. The rate of issues/time I have to work on it/days before the show = slim chance.
