Can I lop the last few weekends together?

Ok just last weekend...

-Welded up seat bracket to Passat Passenger Seat and installed (driver seat done previous weekend)
- Cut muffler out of exhaust, cut the S pipe into a downward facing Candy cane shaped pipe, welded attachment bracket to it, installed after the resonator.
- Used a heat gun to heat up the fender with a dent, used a flat head to press the dent out. Now I have a slight crease, looks much better.
- ZipTie™ Mod for the hood release latch (the tongue that pops out from under the hood)
- Cut out the bracket that holds the rear bench seat back up and the two body bolts that hold the 6-Disc CD changer in the trunk. Car is officially a two-seater now.
- Dismantled front subframe from a 2001 Jetta to have installed in the Beetle and resolve my negative camber issue
- Reprogrammed Cluster to Japan, hoping it'd take away the CEL for the EGR ... but it didn't.
- Setup VAGCOM in WINE / Setup two VirtualBox VirtualMachines for VAGCOM should my serial cable not work with VAGCOM running in WINE (I Use Linux...)
- Cleaned out my car

I fixed the blend door in my 02 last weekend and gave the inside a good scrubbing afterward. Thought about doing the water pump in my 03 and decided it was too much to handle right now so I am looking for a good vw mechanic who works on his own time in the Ft. Lauderdale area to do it for me. Just not confident enough yet to tear apart the motor, Photo0174.jpg
