Wow, I don't think I've seen those photos before. You've put a LOT of 
work into this. I couldn't understand why the roof would need to be 
replaced until I saw the sunroof pan underneath. I'm guessing the 
drains were clogged up and that's why the roof rusted. Did you have 
to replace the sunroof pan, or were you just able to repair it?

I think the green will be an excellent choice. I know the fancy 
colors are eyecatching, but to my eyes, at least, they just look 
wrong on a Type 3.

I hope you can, and, if possible, bring the brake caliper that I 
rebuilt and that leaks. I still feel bad about that and I'd like to 
know what went wrong.
