There's always tomorrow!

Well, the sub frame is good to come out once I get the time to do it.  The plan is to jack up the car to clear the engine, put my two carts underneath the assembly, disconnect the last two bolts and drop it back on the ground on the rims and roll it out.

I am pretty sure I'll have to pull the transmission out of the sub frame and disconnect the axles to make room to swap the hockey stick.  I haven't yet decided if I'm going to pull the engine or leave them mated.  Either way, it's going back into the car the way it came out - all in one piece.
In addition to preparing for the hockey stick swap, I ran the power wire for the electric fuel pump.  I marked up the mounting plate for further grinding/filing but put that on the table so that I could meet up with a couple of local VW friends to swap parts and socialize.  It was a good decision to hang out with a couple of cool people instead of swearing at my car for a couple of hours.  I can get back to doing that tomorrow.

I think I've got a pretty good schematic for wiring up the fuel pump and the safety relay - keeping all of the wiring under the dash and minimizing the connections as well.

Tomorrow is another day.

Eh, maybe I'll wait until Monday.
