Sat at work on a bank holiday bored so thought I'd chuck some pictures up
Not much has changed really, I spent 8 weeks trying to get it running - turned out my ECU had lost my map and my battery needed a lil boost.
Started putting my interior back together too
At this point decided I would need to make my own dash as my seat is now further back to keep my head away from the door bar and I wouldn't be able to reach the standard dash anymore.
mocked up some nice engineering drawings (only useful thing ive taken from uni so far) and gave them to a local sheet metal company who made me this
Also made some doorcards up out of ABS plastic stuff.
Started putting it together - using standard window switches, hazards and demister.
in missing fuse box here
went for failed mapping at TDI with Steve and his teg. Frustratingly, my ECU is STILL broken! I haven't got boost outputs working despite this being a new ecu Tdi couldn't do anything with it, and everytime they plugged into it it lost my map again. absolutely gutted to be going back for a second time and having no more boost than stock wastegate pressure
Took her to the lakes after TDI anyways and had some fun getting freezing cold with no heaters
Steve then very kindly gave me one of his Recaro Hans Spg's which i absolutely love! Feel soooo safe in there!
And finished my dash!
Also @Beetlejuice made me this! I absolutely love it! just need to sort out getting it on now
Off to Spa and the Ring in a week in it! lets see how she copes with two days of abuse at spa!
Quick service next week and shes ready to go, I've been so lucky with this thing
