I've been continuing to work on my exhaust heat shield. This thing is kicking my ass! It warped a lot during welding, so I have been trying to tap it back into shape. It's getting closer to completion... but it might end up in the scrap pile if things don't start to shape up.
My Rabbit continues to fall apart as I approach 100k miles. This week, my mirror glass came loose. I was able to catch it before it fell off on the highway, and I re-installed it with 3M double-sided tape. I might buy new glass before the winter, because the defrosters will not work through the tape.
