    Wiring almost done, just the last couple of ones to do. Away until Friday but the weekend I hope to get it finished up and turn the key! Mocked up front panel, it's not clean. I'd like a US one as it's smoother but may refresh this. Scuttle panel and new seal, finely balanced engine cover too.

    I'm sure it will be athe a few shows once done, next year more than likely. Picked the car up Saturday, hired a flat bed and loaded it up. Just over an hour from home the heavens opened big time, it was hideous. And the car had no windows...or doors...or sunroof. Just carpet and rear bench. So it had a nice puddle in there and everything was soaked right through. Once back to the unit we pushed it in and got the wet vac out. Now it was back I wanted the engine in asap to mock up the loom etc. Then I couldn't resist putting the brakes on that had been sitting in the box for a while. And started laying out the loom. As seen on previous pages married the mk3 and BAM loom up and labelled it so it saved time at this stage. Needless to say a couple of hours soldering and it will be done. Put the rear lights in as well, they look great against the paint. Over the moon with it, so nice to see a year of work now in paint and getting nearer to being a car again. Simon @ Wheelworks has done a cracking job with the paint and body work, despite the fairly big upsets we had numerous times its come out well. Needs a dam good flat and polish to really make it shine now. There will be more posts on instagram luke_mk3 also

    Not posted on here for a while so thought I would give a little update. After lending the van out and it being driven with no coolant in (Don't ask), it is now sitting like this As it's been off the road Iv'e been driving all sorts of stuff and have been getting fond on the DSG gearbox, so this got me thinking... While everything is out why not do a DSG conversion? After speaking to Ryan at Darkside plans got well out of hand and I ended up buying a donor vehicle shortly afterwards. Now it's having a fully built 2.0 CR engine with 7 speed DSG 4 motion gearbox fitted. Iv'e also booked it in at Slide Motorsport for a rollcage making and the S3 rear axle is going to be mounted to this. We're not going mad with the cage as it will still be daily driver but when a well suited track day comes around then we shouldn't have to hold back. The donor Tiguan has been run up on the dyno to check everything is healthy which it does seem to be. Once we have some more time the conversion will be getting started, the plan is to get the standard engine / gearbox in and running then once we're happy with it, take it back out and swap it for the built engine with big turbo etc. and start doing some software development. Keep any eye on both the Darkside & SRS facebook page as the updates will be on there before anywhere else but I'll try and update this as often as possible for anyone who is interested.

    I had a dual exit exhaust fitted by MIJ exhausts in Walsall today. I had the body shop mould in a twin diffuser from an A4 cabriolet last week and then had twin 3.5" inward tolled pipes fitted today. I love it. I'll try and get better pics tomorrow and maybe a video.

    So, truth be told i was pushing my luck somewhat Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr In the past i entered the sea with the Cherokee pretty ofter at this particular spot. However . . . This is not a Jeep Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got pulled out by a family car, but not without my pride and my car being hurt as well. AC radiator got pushed by the bad Darkside IC installation probably, and also, wheels were scratched from the rocks at the beach. Had no Ac for the next days, and scratched wheels, oh well Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr On my way back home, at a highway parking Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got back to Athens, and lost no time First AC radiator replacement, and new mounting points and brackets for the IC, properly this time, and not like my half-ass job on a bad product Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr All done and I love how the new BEHR Ac Radiator is silver instead of black Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Looks mean Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Temporary Audi wheels while mine were sent to be painted Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gave it a proper wash Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Do these wheels make it look like a Renault or is it just me Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr I also ordered this Powerflex mount - Diesel Specific - To reduce engine movement which was getting frustrating especially after the track visit. It increased vibration, but reduced movement like it should Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oem Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr And then wheels were ready I opted for a change to see how it would look. I normally like to keep my cars in a two tone theme. And this is no exception, it was red and black. However, i thought I'd give it a go on something rather different. So. . . Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr This is what I came up with Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr First time on the car Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr They sure look bigger Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr To be honest at first i couldnt get used to it but the more i saw it the more i liked it Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Threw on some Rota caps in Gunmetal which I ordered from UK again Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr And the box as well Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Car is currently away on vacation mode, seeing some dusty roads and beaches Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Cheers Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Mike

    Spent Sunday last week and a few days after work getting the loom sorted, dropping the tank and rear beam etc. Few bits off to powder coaters and reseal a few bits under the chassis. The loom is all done, just power and earth's sorting, ecu de-immobilised and should be able to see if it starts! Before the loom was done. Had to try a wheel out also

    Shifter turned up! Proper excited about it! I've drilled the firewall for the cables, but still yet to mount the shifter properly. I've also hopefully got my hands on a Kirkey Lightweight bucket that I should have next week some time.
