  1. I use a DA polish machine and mainly Scholl rubbing products. Swizzvax polish.
  2. The joys of having an old vw. 😁
  3. The steeringwheel has a bit of wear, so i got hold of a stitch-in cover for it in leather. I need to steam it to get the wrinkles out, but im happy with the result.
  4. Bought mine from china on ebay. Its for sure a copy, but it looks ok. 👍
  5. Thats was what I was going for, an oem look. Yes, you are right. 🙂
  6. I didnt mention the small updates in the engine compartement. Since the road authorities here doesnt like pod filters i created a box to hide it, it gets cold air from the bumper underneath. I also used a mk5 batterycover to hide the grey battery. Next on the agenda here is stock red ignition cables and black hoses.
  7. When i bought it had been sitting for allmost 10 years, so the valveguides in the engine is not as soft as they should be. So its been smoking now and then. So plan to rebuild the engine, but i guess this will have to wait until fall when car is put into storage. 😊
  8. That brings me to today. And this is how the car looks now. I changed the black hella rear lights to red ones. Gave the paint a good detailing and top coat.
  9. The eletrical gremlins where mainly do to faulty wires between the drivers door and the car. I also changed the switch behind the ignition.
  10. Gave the interior a proper clean and fitted a pioneer head unit and Focal component set in the front doors.
  11. For some reason i didnt get an notification that someone had answered in my thread and forgot all about it. Quite alot has happened since my last post. I swapped the wheels to a set of 3SDM 0.06 17s. Changed most parts in the front and rear suspension and tidied up some electrical gremlins. Some pictures
  12. Nice Looks a bit different now though.
  13. Personally im not a fan of the "Petter Solberg edition" look. Havent tried yet, they are show wheels, going to display it at a motorshow this weekend.
  14. Fast forward to today, just got the new wheels and had them fitted. Had to play around a bit with camber and spacers, but im very happy with the fitment. Ispiri Wheels 8.5x18 with 215/35-18 tires. Put the VR6 badge back on and fitted a tow strap on the front. Created a bracket for the airfilter, its was just held on with a ziptie when i bought it.
