  1. Hi, do you still have the mats for sale please?

  2. Hi, Do you still have the boot mat for sale please?
  3. Hi, I have managed to loose 1 of these while doing some work at the weekend. Does anyone have 1 spare at all? Its the plug and holder for it that holds the tray in place you need to remove to get to the fuse panel. Thanks, Charlie.
  4. HI, what tail pipe finish does it have please?
  5. Sorry I didn't take many photos as I got so wrapped up in doing it I forgot to pause and document it all. If I recall I used an angle grinder on the back metal plate the supports the stereo and then re positioned it lower down with fiberglass. The centre console was just cut with a sharp knife to keep it clean and then to re position the heater controls I made some hook style brackets to hold it in place further down and then screwed it together. I'm not great at design and fabrication so it was very simple and easy to do! The hardest part was the ashtray and lighter! I ended up having to relocate these as you can see but if you went the route of deleting these altogether you could just use the VDO guage plate which is potentially an even easier fix! It was all done in a few evenings and had to be able to go back to normal as it is my daily driver! I am really pleased with it, surprised at how good it looks and a lot of people look in awe that it must have been so hard to do! Word of caution though- if you do go angle grinder route like I did put some old rags under where you are cutting- unlike me to help avoid fires!!!
  6. Hi there. I did this a couple of years ago and have put everything I did on 1 or my posts- have a look. It wasn't as scary as I thought!
  7. I did a double DIN conversion to mine- it is on my build thread with pictures. It wasn't as much of a ball ache as I thought it was going to be overall!
  8. Hello lovely people, I need your help again. My water pump committed suicide on me the other day. I have had it sorted and all is good but the garage have tried to order a replacement belt out of routine- the old 1 is OK but I would like to replace. Anyhow- they have now tried 8 different belts and all are too big- even from VW direct. Does anyone know the correct part number for the correct belt at all? It is for a G60 on a 92 plate. Thank you all in advance, Charlie.

    Hello Am after a pair of visors to replace mine. Am happy to clean them up but would rather no damage and n/s light to also be working. Let me know- would need to be posted unless in Colchester area. Thanks Charlie.
  10. So we were booked in for VW white Noise this weekend just gone which gave me a reason to get some bits finished! With my mate Iain we managed to wire in a new green cigarette lighter, the light for the ash tray and the new illuminated heater dials while also re connecting the sub and re routing the wiring in the boot! Got it all done in good time and a few pics from the weekend. It went in the show n shine for Daily drivers on Saturday and the water cooled category on Sunday- no prizes though- the kids were not happy as they helped to clean it both days!
