Since we finally got her running and stopping this weekend, I figured I'd update my thread. This front end was not for the feint at heart.  First off, none of realized that early drivers side tie rod ends are crimped on and can't be reused. I had to order them from Gary and with my luck, after specifically asking for both sides of the short tie rod (one being RH thread and the other being LH thread), I got in two right hand thread tie rods! scratch so luckily Eric brought over some spares he had.  Only problem is the LH thread one had the steering damper on it so it was too long. In the great spirit of VW ingenuity, we cut off some of the threads and made it work! Still need to do some tweaking of the alignment, but it is pretty good.  Let me tell you guys, Eric (fluxcap) is the guru of front ends!! He brought over some old school McGiver contraptions!!! Worked like a champ!!!
