Greetings:

AZ would you be able to check the VW exhaust gasket against these specs?

Thickness doesn't matter so much. VeeDubh20 says it fits and that should be enough. He even provided a source link:

No harm in asking a second opinion.

I'm currently unemployed, but my last real job was a car wash. I brought home $200 a week give or take, and it was barely enough to live on, and when I lost that job (my bi-polar kicked in and I flipped out hardcore on my boss and almost put him in this hospital) I lost my house.

So I'm squatting with a friend right now, and it looks like we may also be losing this place because he lost his job and we don't think he'll get unemployment in time.

Someone PM me from MI if you know anything about how to get unemployment, he's clueless. I've never worked a job long enough to know.

I was an electronics tech in the days before digital. I have been a medical professional since although never wealthy. I also dabbled in photography. Gunsmithing, motorcycle racing, I got a second to Kevin Schwanz one race in 1983; am a welder, machinist. Oh and a private * star, to my wife.

All satisfying.

I work with a conservation agency helping to protect and restore the land in the U.S. Primarily we work with farmers, ranchers, and forestry holdings. Bonus is I only live 4 miles from the office and it is a fun 4 mile curvy drive when the weather is warm enough to ride.

And my wife wont let me be a * star, with her or without her :*:

Im a salesman in the printing and publishing industry by day and the skipper of a high tech racing catamaran in my mind. With the printing industry starting to die a very slow death, was thinking about painting used scooter parts with a rattle can to make ends meet.

Or if I just get fed up with my job and my wife leaves me, I will become a pirate on a catamaran of my own... maybe smuggling is a profitable pirate trade... Hhmmm
