Fog Light got all yellow



Got me some RS3 / TT-RS front bushings



And finally



I think it's about time I started installing the trimmed interior on the golf



Hell of a project to say the least.

Cheers more to come

I had written a huge post explaining all the procedure of today's 12hr work on my day off from work, give or take.

And then google chrome decided to crash, maybe because of it new logo, I dont know.

So here are just the pics, without words, sorry for that.

[Lucky I did not break my laptop, LoL]









Weapons



Start dissasembly









A-Pillars removed





Time for the tricky part - boring as well - column stuff off to give clearance.









Out it went





Pile of parts



Started putting things back







Driver lower dash







Looking good



Dirty parts



Got cleaned and dressed



Defi controller installed





GLovebox installed



Started tackling the center console which is not so fun



Been some time since i removed these parts and hardly remembered what went where, but got there



Then I had to leave the camera down, as I was losing daylight and put more work



Put everything back an hour ago, some details left, and then a proper photoshoot hopefully. This came out even better from what I had imagined.

And if you see it live, it is really something else, I tell you.

More to come

Regards Mike
