    Funny you should say that at check-in mine none of them have gone black inside yet but the car did break down on Friday lol damn crankshaft sensor again changed it three-and-a-half years ago so again like yourself waiting for parts as I'm going to improve this one by buying OEM and I hope it lasts longer,and put a strut brace in the other day.

    went away on vacay for a week a resort on the other side of the mountain

    after that once i came back i tackled the broken driver side window on the Agu, its been broken since i bought the car and i have been struggling to get a regulator so i went and bought a complete subframe with motor, for less than what a regulator cost at the dealer

    subframe.jpg
    considering the damaged state of the centre console on the agu i went ahead and converted/modified the single din pre facelift console into a double din

    doubledin conversion1.jpg

    Those headunits are **** i only used it as a reference, the plan is to fit an a4 headunit in there like i did on the Agn.
    doubledin conversion 2.jpg

    and then i came across a damage facelift centre console for R400 (19.51 GBP ) so i will be installing that in the agu now.

    fun fact apart from being a partial facelift, ie facelift headliner, visors and having the diagnostics port on driver side etc. my agu might be one of the very last ones that ran of the production line. the build date on the door card is 25-04-2000 (you can see it says PFL on there meaning pre facelift) it also has an oil level sensor (thats factory wired) and canbus clocks

    in comparison the sunglasses tray on the facelift centre console i just purchased was manufactured on 15-05-2000

    New oil pickup pipe in yesterday supplied by @Tj 0785 thanks again. Car was coming up with minimum oil light. Even though it was full, so sump off 1 rounded bolt and some help from a friend and car feels even better. Also got new mk1 tt alloys for ridiculously cheap so whacked them on today. Tyres are all good only had to change one. Result.

    Not exactly today but this week ish... redid the hardlines on the PC as I swapped the res/pump out from a Corsair hydro-x setup to an EK flat res...

    I really need to make a start on getting the turbo on really but times are such that there is not much I can do about that right now... :(

    Working from home means I spend a lot of time in my cave... so I get too much time to think about what to mod next lol...

    Did nothing and sat on my fat *** all day. The fact that I procrastinate and get things done is the only reason why I still procrastinate.

    OEM style reverse cam for the AGU since i have done this already for the other car many moons ago, it went alot quicker this time, 30 minutes and it was done.

    Test Fit (plastic welded and bonded the gaps afterwards, plastic welding wasnt really needed as i bonded the one on the other car and that is still holding 5 years later)

    rc3.jpg

    Done (i'll wire it up on another day since i know the camera works (tested it before i frankensteined it)

    A neat alternative to the HPA controller! No extra screen to clutter the glove box.
