Put some NTO doors on. Now it's time to fix the gaps.

It was time for a new windscreen. My motto is if you are going to replace something UPGRADE!

I had Rovalution install a military heated windscreen & replaced rear fog light, hazard & rear defrost switches with Carling switches.

The windscreen is amazing, after only a couple minutes it is registering 89 degrees! There was frost on the window this morning and it was about 45 seconds to get up to temperature and then then rather than just melting, the frost evaporated.

Why did I wait this long????

Thanks Don!

Got the fan cowl fitted and rewired a few engine sensors. Inspected the turbo and noticed the shaft has a fair amount of play (up/down & in/out). Also a light coating of oil in the IC pipes... joy

Tdi instruments are glimming green but almost dark during the night too!

Great job!

Turbo - apparently it all tightens up with oil pressure when its running, and some oil in the intercooler plumbing is normal. Does the engine use much oil between oil changes that can't be attributed to external leaks?

Worry about the turbo when it starts making nasty noises.

That is a fine looking fan shroud. I'm glad it made it safely.

Thanks again for this bit! Finally feels like this swap is coming together.

Truck lites

Installed Truck Lites and just tested them out at halftime. Amazing difference. The triangles/shadows they project are a little odd, but I can get used to it.

Tied my bootlace to the throttle so i could get the 30 miles home. Hand throttle out the window in 40 degree drizzle. Hurt at first, then It stopped hurting... But it worked like a charm. Better than my first work around... Turning up the idle. Thought it accelerated slow before...
Shopped cables... In the USA, $137- ordered from uk... $44 for 2 delivered. Difference of about a week of wait. Reasonable?

Installed new LED KC headlights. Brilliant kit. Need to adjust but love the output. Yanked the hodge podge jimmy of an exhaust and had installed 3" straight exhaust. Nice sound now and being new to tdi' love the turbo whine. Click image for larger version

Anyone have any suggestions or tricks for getting the seat back cover to go on easier? It seems like it's about 2 inches too short for the plastic rail at the back to snap together. I'm thinking I just need to eat more wheaties.

Make sure its nice and fitted at the top. But yea, it a little tough. I recovered with Outlast so maybe they had a little more give.

Use plastic wrap or silicone spray on the foam. I've even used a small trash bag and then pulled it out after it slid down to the bottom.

I'm guessing these two are related, the silicone spray helps it slide down all the way easier. I just re-watched the exmoor video and I see I missed that step at earlier Thanks guys!

Edit: still kicking my butt, but I'm getting closer. If they made this section lace up like a pair of shoes or a corset this would be a lot easier.

Its supposed to be tough, but the above mentioned work well. I don't like the silicone.. the garbage bag, a 13gal usually works well for the back, can go on and stay on. it won't make noise, and it *can* protect from moisture. of course, if it doesn't... then it makes it worse. You can pull it off when done if you want.

If its tight as hell and fits in the end.. you know its on there right.

Ok. I'll try the bag next. This will not beat me!

Zipper! That's what they should have used, a zipper with a little extra to make it start easier.
