  1. I used a Porsche clip as it’s identical but already black. For the fixed side I had to trim the existing part a bit to get it into the hole but then it was kind of like for like I think, it’s been a while 🤣
  2. I am still alive, just snowed under with work. I didn’t use the Audi TT ones I had as they were too long. I ended up using the Golf 3.5 ones, not a perfect fit either but close enough for me
  3. What about the ignition switch? I changed mine during my very prolonged build but I also had random power issues even after the key was removed. I read on Facebook that there are 2 different types. I’ve swapped from the previous black one back to a cream one but yet to test it. Just that you mentioned various symptoms with ignition on
  4. Probably of zero help in the actual problem but the fog light and horn wiring is easily mixed up, over by the battery, same plugs. So it’s likely you can eliminate that one
  5. As has been said, pictures/location/rough price you’re hoping for. And what category of write off is it?
  6. Not Furniture Clinic, it’s Gliptone (Liquid Leather). As for time, it was done over a weekend, I had to re glue all the door cards as the leather was loose most of the way round. I used contact glue for that. Then scrubbed the seats with various lotions and potions, but soapy water and a sponge/cloth will do that. Then a clean all over with isopropyl, then 3 coats of dye applied with a sponge and a small brush. It was pretty easy and very forgiving and dried fast . All done outside as the weather was decent. Once it had a day to dry properly I went over it with conditioner
  7. I eventually got round to doing this after a few years 🤣 I used the Scuffmaster , I’ll attach a picture of the actual dye. Be aware though that I did the whole interior, not sure a repair wouldn’t stand out a bit as it’s very likely not going to match 100% a well worn set. I liked the results that much I’ve bought a 2nd bottle as I have another cream interior (Recaro’s) as I sold the standard one after I’d got it all dyed etc. Plus, I’ve got a bottle of the grey (sent a sample in to match) so I could do the other interior at some point
  8. Welcome back mate, no one really goes away 😁
  9. I’m surprised mate, but you’ve had a long time, best of luck with whatever you decide 👍
  10. Aye, looks like obd1 to me…….. I wonder if he’d sell the flap mechanism separately? 🤣
  11. Welcome along mate, look forward to seeing some pictures 👍
  12. Ha ha, yes, finally, 5 years it was in the body shop. To be fair I did say I was in no rush and I never pushed the guys. They moved premises and it moved with them and they got really busy so it just went onto the back burner. And it was ok with me as I knew it was safe where it was 😁
  13. Ok, so blink and another year has slipped by, not exactly sure how that happened. Last year was a bit of a write off with some family stuff and work getting extremely busy. I have high hopes of getting this on the road for the spring……….. although I probably said that last year and the year before, however, I had to evict it from the Garage as a long lost friend came home 🤣
  14. Hi, Welcome along, I’ve moved your request to the wanted section, hopefully someone will be along to offer you one 👍
