Most mk1 owners will agree the engine bay trim panel retaining fastenings (plastic/dowel clips) are rubbish if you regularly fettle/clean around the engine!
Always liked the 42 Draft Designs engine bay trim fastenings with the aluminium dimpled machined washers that compliment the OE TT trim concept, their specific fit sizing and secure rivet fastening.

Managed to get a set and not disappointed with the quality! - however I am not such a fan of the blingy brightness so in order to tone things down and look more OE I've got a local company to anodise all the washers black - but keeping the Stainless M6 bolts for durability.

As supplied:



Thanks to theanodisingco.co.uk in Wigston, Leicester - worth chatting to Andrew if you have similar work (mention the chap with the red TT recommended you).
