Hi all, I'm still getting the frankenjetta ready for winter in Alaska.
I'm still trying to get a glow relay installed in the converted jetta.

A kind soul pulled what looked like a glow relay harness and sent it to
me, but alas it was something close but not quite right. (maybe a fuel
pump relay?? right number of sockets, but the plugs aren't big enough
for the relay.)  :(

The junkyards up here won't cut wires, $100 for the glow plug harness
(with everything else attached).  I can still buy the plastic plate that
everything clips into, but nothing with the female-spade connectors and

The jetta is a converted 8v, so there is a plug on the fuse box, but the
glow system is all wired through a push-button right now, and it would
be easier just to attach wires than to fiddle with the "real" wiring

Anyone have a glow plug relay harness (I'm thinking of the one on my 81
pickup) that I can $$??  (Before I bite the bullet and head down to
radio shack and get out the soldering iron?)
