Hi guys, my name is Rod. My wife has been wanting a Beetle for years, just recently she into the turbo diesel Beetle's so we searched for an afforable one. We found a really cheap high mileage 02 TDI, a bit crusty and needing a fender, but the price was right. Been hitting the junkyards piecing it together, heck, just got done replacing the bottom engine mount (dogbone), guess it was flopping around on her the day prior. Couldn't find one new locally without waiting a week, so went down to U Pull It (again, been getting a lot of great stuff out there cheap!) and got a tight one for $15. Really enjoy working on this car (so far, at least! lol), other than replacing the fan shroud (made my tiny hands feel enormous! Not much space in these cars! lol), and I'm sure I'll have many questions. I'm a 37 year old asian guy, yet strangely this is my first foreign car, it's a bit different but I like it... plus it sounds like a diesel truck!
