Received some goodies today for the daily. I dont want to leave it sad and jealous of the Audi.

A new box



had these inside it



Same like on my Audi



The other Audi, was a bit jealous





Nevermind that, its time has not yet arrived, hahaha

Of course lost no time at all . . .

Removed the airbag from its clips/tabs



Then this one - just like old times



I made two wires, soldered and heat-shrink everything of course, half yellow part from dealership and the other half from the MOMO kit, so as to have a working horn button



Ready to install



Done



At last, I feel like home again.



Cheers

Very rainy day today in Athens, however managed to do some work on the daily.

Some time ago, I had purchased:

-AEM Dry Flow Filter
-034 Motorsport hoses
-Alu pipes and bends
-Clamps,



so pretty much everything I needed to make a new fresh CAI for the daily GT.

Welded



Installed this, for the bracket support



So here it was ready, and installed in place, with the nice supporting bracket









Time to make it match my style and taste

ETCH Primered



Finished in subtle Satin Black



Black Silicone Hose, and clamps in place



And with the help of some DEI, to reflect some heat from the Turbo . . .

Almost ready



Came out clean



Some more things to do in the bay, but going really well for the daily



Cheers guys

Mike

Hello there.

Thought I'd show you some work done on the instrument clusters of two of my cars.

One is from the MKV Golf, and the other of the Audi. Does not matter, I am sure it can be applied almost everywhere.

So here are some befores to show what we were up against.

Golf first







Pretty nice eh ?

So, lost no time and attacked it with a menzerna pf2500 with a combination of polishing pads on the rotary



50:50 attempt on first pass



getting there



After the correction, SV Autobahn was chosen to finish if off



Applied by hand





Left to cure



Audi cluster time

Before



yiiikes





Masked



And let's attack this one as well





Fun time





Curing time with its friend



Lets see what we did



Hm looks good . . . let's take it out in the sun







And for better comparison:

Before



After



Before



After



Let's see the Audi cluster as well

Before



After



Needless to say I was very happy with the results.

Hope you liked it too.

Cheers guys

Mike

What is more, I also had another wheel . . .



Yeap, a same, 5th UltraLeggera, that I had refurbished and finished in the same way the other 4 were finished



And then wrapped in some rubber . . .







Cheers

If you put the same care, attention and detail into your other "patients", then you could be my family doctor for life!
