    Arnt they already gloss on a facelift?
    I thought it was the pre-facelift that has matt black pillars.

    Gloss black roof rails could be interesting.
    The mirrors will just look like basic bogo mirrors.


    I've been out and plasti dipped my window rubbers, so they all look a bit better now.
    Also fitted a new fuel filter
    Was meant to do more but broke the blind, lost my plug and can't be assed now. :(
    I'm off to play batman.

    Pillars are gloss but scratched and rusty. I have another set from the prefacelift, so i thaught i could have those painted. Rails are just matt black as PFL. Mirrors could look boggo, but at the same time, with the black roof and pillars it could look good, especially if i have the bases painted as well.

    She might live past that if I have my way or she might die tomorrow if the wife gets her way. lol

    My AC died about a month ago, after some testing and hunting for the leak we found it.
    Its the evaporator and the AC man is very shocked, he has never replaced or ordered on for the B5 before. When he ordered the part his supplier was shocked as well.

    Yesterday I was given this unit.

    My weekend task is to fit the damn thing.
    Dash out again, heather matrix out again and strip.
    I like working on my car but there are some jobs that I hate with so much passion and this is one of them.

    Yep the front is just sitting on the arms and the rear is just resting on the beam lol.

    Subframe is on the concrete. Its getting craned away once the head is off so i couldnt be ***** to swap the suspension over.

    Its actually got a touch lower since then lol

    +1 on that suggestion.

    Scott, you had done one earlier for removing the heater, but IIRC all the dash was removed - it may have been in your project thread???.

    (You might also want to tell that Dodgy Geezer who is doing a B5 FAQ sticky :icon_thumright: )

    I'll try and remember to take proper pics of each section and what to remove.
    I tend to get caught up in the job and forget about pictures.

    I think I know the dodgy geezer you refer to. Got a daft Bristolian accent as well I think.

    97' 2.8 V6 5-speed Quattro. Converted to one piece headlights after 4 hours of modifying for fitment. Picked up Symphony radio and framework to plan out process in converting center console to double din. Looking into picking up new wire to connect set of fog lights I picked up a few days ago. Also, found a full size passenger mirror assembly with the same color, but the mirror itself is missing. Just itching to see how it all turns up.

    Full size?

    Do you guys have mini mirrors over there?

    Nice one on the conversion. facelift lights really brighten up the front end and the road where you are going.

    Cam cover looks good.

    This weekend:

    Put my S4 rear bumper and skirts in for painting.
    Fitted new brakes to the avant
    Fixed a boost leak/split breather on the avant.
    Cleaned/degreased the engine bay on the track car, put the front end on stands, removed the hashed together suspension that was fitted to move it around last year.

    Not really today but last week.
    Still, it gives us something to read.

    I picked up 2 8mm spacers and 2 10mm spacers from Colin and Joe (Thanks Lads [​IMG]) as a test fit to see what size would fit.

    I finally got round to fitting them yesterday.

    8mm on the front and 10mm on the back.
    Here's some pics.

    Not today but recently dropped the oil, cured my oil leek with a new turbo oil return to dump gasket then added a vw trabsporter oil filter and refilled with oil :)

    Need to sort out the headlights next as they are dire. I'm used to his so the tea lights that my QTS seems to use to light the way need sorting.

    Did a oil service over the weekend, all good nothing special.
    Put in some Bardhal Oil and turbo protect.

    Last oil change I fitted a magnetic sump plug, that was about 10k ago. I know I got a bit slack in oil changes. next one is at 150k, 4k away.
    I was expecting allot of metal bits attached to the magnet but there was nothing.
    It was clean.

    I can only assume that's a good thing and that makes me happy. :jump:

    Fitted the nearly new tail lamps supplied by a nice guy from Plymouth (cheers) - look good.
    Fixed a leaking o-ring on the coolant pipe on the rear of the block which was costing me a fortune on coolant.
    All need to do now is fix my exhaust silencer bracket which has rusted away. which i only just noticed!!!
