In other news, the car passed its technical inspection (every 2 years in Greece)

and here it is, giving a hand in my main project



Really love how it is starting to take back its old personality from when I had it



I also started working on the engine bay, have some plans in mind

Removed this tired OEM insulation



And cleaned the underbonnet a bit



Not finished yet, I have more on this coming too

Finally I ordered this, so as to install my old racing steering wheel, to find my proper driving position again



Stay tuned.

Cheers

Thank you very much. In the end of the day, it's all about doing something that satisfies, you, and you alone. Not opening threads and discussions, for others to decide what to do to your own car. If others like it too, then even better. But one must do things that he likes primary. At least that is how I see it :)

Yes, I like to mix things up a bit. I think you can tell already, considering I am swapping a Supra 2JZ engine in an Audi RS4 body, cant you ? :)

Received some goodies today for the daily. I dont want to leave it sad and jealous of the Audi.

A new box



had these inside it



Same like on my Audi



The other Audi, was a bit jealous





Nevermind that, its time has not yet arrived, hahaha

Of course lost no time at all . . .

Removed the airbag from its clips/tabs



Then this one - just like old times



I made two wires, soldered and heat-shrink everything of course, half yellow part from dealership and the other half from the MOMO kit, so as to have a working horn button



Ready to install



Done :D



At last, I feel like home again.



Steering Wheel and Airbag are for sale.

Cheers :D

Very rainy day today in Athens, however managed to do some work on the daily.

Some time ago, I had purchased:

-AEM Dry Flow Filter
-034 Motorsport hoses
-Alu pipes and bends
-Clamps,



so pretty much everything I needed to make a new fresh CAI for the daily GT.

Welded



Installed this, for the bracket support



So here it was ready, and installed in place, with the nice supporting bracket









Time to make it match my style and taste

ETCH Primered



Finished in subtle Satin Black



Black Silicone Hose, and clamps in place



And with the help of some DEI, to reflect some heat from the Turbo . . .

Almost ready



Came out clean



Some more things to do in the bay, but going really well for the daily :)



Cheers guys

Mike

Hello there.

Thought I'd show you some work done on the instrument clusters of two of my cars.

One is from the MKV Golf, and the other of the Audi. Does not matter, I am sure it can be applied almost everywhere.

So here are some befores to show what we were up against.

Golf first







Pretty nice eh ?

So, lost no time and attacked it with a menzerna pf2500 with a combination of polishing pads on the rotary



50:50 attempt on first pass



getting there



After the correction, SV Autobahn was chosen to finish if off



Applied by hand





Left to cure



Audi cluster time

Before



yiiikes





Masked



And let's attack this one as well





Fun time





Curing time with its friend



Lets see what we did



Hm looks good . . . let's take it out in the sun







And for better comparison:

Before



After



Before



After



Let's see the Audi cluster as well

Before



After



Needless to say I was very happy with the results.

Hope you liked it too.

Cheers guys :)

Mike

If you keep giving positive feedback, you will force me to put the Audi Build thread in here

Thank you for your kind words.

did I miss why the turbo is on top of the engine instead of underneath?

and once again, this thread pleases me.

In Europe, GT's come with a 1.4 TSI.

So, it has been some time since I last drove my daily, due to the fact that I was away from home for the Audi RS4 project.

So I had to give some love to my favorite daily.

Fresh stuff and fluids





Mmmm nice tires there



And then, after that was done. I thought is was time for a gift

Remember this ?



Yeah, me no likey either

So time for a new set of tails. And why not upgrade at the same time eh ?

Brand new OEM .:R32 tails



50:50 on one side



I really enjoy this mod like the first time I had installed them back in the past



50:50



Subtle and nice



Other side done too





Finally :)







Love it, actually.

Had a great trip with the daily for the next part of my summer vacations. Boy was it handy, and economical, despite being heavily loaded with luggage, yet fast and agile on hard cornering. Those 245 meaty tires, sure do work. :D :D

Seriously thinking of Roof Racks, and a Tow Bar at the back when I get back :love:

Pics from the fun :D :D

ESP Off



Roof Open



Lots of camber :love:



Dat Fitment



Heavily loaded at the back and rear seats



Low Low





Getting artistic



You should, visit Greece :)



Cheers :)

So, it had been nothing but fun those summer days. Travelling here and there. Some pics that I had uploaded while I found a network to play with .





















No matter the road, the Golf has done great so far, like a champ. I love this car. I really do.



Cheers :D :D
