What did you do to your MK6 today?

Man, I still regret not pulling the trigger on that hatch bar when they had it for that stupidly good discount.

Got my fuel pump setup pretty much done. Unfortunately the wires were too short to be mounted the same way as the other wires, and the soldering job wasn't the best, but overall I think it it looks ok. The corrugated fuel line is much shorter than the OEM, which turns out to be an issue. It goes straight down instead of looping, which means when the spring goes to compress down it binds up, so I may need to adjust the setup a bit, but I won't know once I try to get it back into the tank. Does anyone think there would be any issues if I tested it out by running some water through it before hand? I'd let it dry out before actually installing it in the tank. I just want to make sure there are no sparks coming from the solder joints because gasoline. Here are the pics of the setup as is tho:

I replaced this today. Torqued the 10 screws down to 11 newton meter. Tightened in this order

I never tightened in that pattern and all 4 have been fine lol

I've only had to replace my PCV once, so this statement made me ugly laugh lol

Ordered a 3 lb lithium battery to replace the boat anchor that’s in the car now that can’t have much life left in it. Best part… only $230, not much more than an Autozone special and is rated for the same cranking amps as one of the less expensive standard options.

I don't think testing will ruin anything, do you know if these pumps use the gas to cool the motor brushes? Are their motor brushes in these?
I just read that distilled water would work as it's nonconductive and or mineral spirits/stoddard solvent.
