Thats the rust spot I mentioned. Well it was rust but i cleaned it up, sprayed rust inhibitor, and taped it up . There is bare metal under there which needs to be repainted (tape is much longer than the affected area). Anymore questions, let me know.
I bought the emblem off of ebay along with a badgeless grille and put it all together. I cant seem to find the emblem on ebay anymore for some reason, but its basically chrome and sits on a square block. I cut up the plastic and made it work. I know what you mean when referring to the Jetta, my second car is a corrado.
The car runs and drives strong (engine, suspension, electrical, etc..). Never really had issues with it except for general maintenance. Right now it is ready to go except for tires. Brakes are all set, but the belt may need to be changed at some point for preventive maintenance (even though there are no signs of major wear). Give me a call if you need any further detail or would like to check out the car.
