They do strip. Bad. The metal is crappy and overall just poor quality. Do yourself favor and spend the 20$ on new vw bolts. They are high quality steel, triple square bolts. I've never had them strip ...

Sounds like the cheap fix is to throw on a new gas cap on and not overfill it. I'm probably going to end up dropping tank because I have to replace the sending unit anyway. I think that'll be a good o ...

there are either 2 or 3 stitch welds in the edges and a series of spot welds in the center of the U portion of the stand. I may have one removed, I will have to look

Awesome, much appreciated!

I think the foam board is made by a few companies, pretty sure what I used was called Celtec.
