Completed and reinstalled door panels. The passenger side had to have some cutting done to the foam (interior to the panel) on the new door panels. It was too big and wouldn't let the panel fit up against the door. Broke the lock grommet at the top of the door ($7) and the puddle light lens (module and lens come together $35) very brittle (passenger side).

A few new shots I took today!












Replacing this center bezel with new soon, to fix AC vent and crappy appearance.


Replacing the glove box door and the grab bar end pieces when the center bezel is done.

Got to clean the drivers side sunroof drain and clean the stain in the headliner it made. Need to polish headlights clear. Hard to wait for the injectors, Malone stage 2 tune and suspension refresh. This thing is getting to be nice! I need a BT radio though so my phone can work through it hands free. The one thing I miss most from the Passat.

Looks like we missed a little bit of crud on the back of the oil filter housing. And what's going on with #4 injector? Is that oil?

I installed the rebuilt and painted front grill last night and ordered a Kenwood KDC-BT762HD head unit from Crutchfield. I plan on waiting to hear what it sounds like with the stock speakers. If I don't like it I am ordering some (4) Polk Audio DB651 6.5"/6.75" 2-Way Marine Certified db Series Car Speakers with Liquid Cooled Silk Tweeters. They got good reviews and seem to fit properly. The 2" lift kit should be delivered today as well as the shift boot and spare key.

I don't know what is up with the injector, I will look at it this afternoon after my new job interview. I am going to try and install the center dash bezel, glove box door, grab bar trim pieces and shift boot if I can. You will be seeing the car soon for suspension refresh and lift and injector install as soon as DBW sends them back to me. If Lance liked my car before he is going to "LOVE IT" next time!

I won't schedule till the injectors come back. Installed shifter boot, new floor mats and programmed remote of the new key tonight. Job interview ran 4 1/2 hours so botched my timing for the center console and glove box. I did manage to get the glove box open and the owners manual and all the paperwork since new was in there. Including the Monroney label!

Thanks Tdijarhead!

Looks great but it's hard to tell with all the grease smudges on my computer screen

OT that is one neat classic ride you have there....
