Subject: A list of 900 (SPG) questions

Greetings to everyone on the newsgroup. I recently took delivery of a 1990 SPG (Black / Grey) in absolutely mint condition - amazed that it has 145K on it. Not a bad step up from a Diesel Rabbit. I have numerous questions and look forward to your thoughts: 1. The car has never had Mobil One in it. Is it worth thinking about now in its life. 2. Turbo is still running full boost. I have heard about backing off the boost about 10% for good measure. Reliability is my first concern. 3. The car also came with 4 Gislaved Frost on steel rims. Max. pressure is 44 and I'm running 41-42. The ride is now much rougher. Any ideas on backing it down a few PSI without doing damage?? 4. Does anyone know how to properly clean real natural sheepskin seat covers. Their not dirty yet - BUT 5. Leather Care??? The only two things I have heard of are LEXOL and Saddle Soap. 6. Are there any HAM Radio operators out there?? I would like to drop a 50 watt 2 meter mobile into the center console. I'm concerned about RF damage to the electronics. 7. How hard is the clock to repair?? 8. Techron use to be highly rated as the additive of choice - Any others worth looking at? (I am only using Mobil Super for fuel) 9. Has anyone mounted a set of 'Driving Beams' above the bumper?? Will it block too much airflow?? I'm driving 1K+ a week right now with alot of dark hours. 10. A whale tail and aero front end look fantastic - Are there any out there?? 11. Louvers?????????? 12. What is with these new ION replacement bulbs?? 13. Is there any reason to let the air out of the 'Summer' tires while they are in storage? 14. Opinions on the HUSCO center arm rest. I MISS NOT HAVING A COFFEE HOLDER. I know I'll have more questions later.... Unfortunately the car is not wired to the internet...... Thank You in advance for all of your help Stephen P. Strock
