Re: A Christmas gift from the Audi gods - NOT (Thanks)

> Thanks all,

It took about 3 hrs of tinkering but it turns out the electrical connetor to the tail light
assembly had an intermittant connection problem that would only show up every third or 4th time
one reconnnected it.  Very frustrating.  But after cleaning all the connections with contact
cleaner and sandpaper and a little rebending of the pins it works fine.

FYI to those who responded to the great 84 Coupe GT give away I will post more details and
pictues in a day or so.


P.S. Dan does the list allow attachement of pictures or should I put them on a server (PITA).
