Sifting the Damage of my break in

Thanks Huw....

Not to worry it is really temporary.  I just heard about a wrecked 86
Audi, that I might be able to go 1/2's with the other Audi guy here on.
If the price is right, it is time to strip that baby down..;)  Then I
can have a reserve of parts, never know when you need that thingy off
the car....  To bad it has a rear end collision, otherwise, it might be
worth playing around with.

Sounds like a plug for speakers, either the front pair or rear.  The
wires are probably green and green with stripes?

I think you might have better results with an epoxy.  I'm also glad
are considering this to be temporary, as you should be able to find
replacements at the scrappers sooner or later.

Since it is so temporary (and not knowing the nature of your
you might want to support the glued joints with little mending straps
bolted to each side of the seam.  That might even be enough to get you
through the winter without any messy experiments with adhesives.
