Small update.

Repainted some aristos I had picked up for winter.





Got some more gli trim in over the weekend.





Pulling the headliner next. And the ever growing parts pile.



Oh. And I ordered some wheels. Should be finished by Water by The Bridge. I promise not to disappoint. Only hint you get is that they're the first set of it's design. Those of you who know hush.

Looks good man. Just threw some aluminum trim in my GTI. Makes a pretty big difference for the interior.

Thanks, it really does make a big difference. With the help of Einkaufswagen hopefully I'll be able to build the cluster I want :wave:

He doesn't help anyone, he just criticizes your work cause he's an angry old man:p

not really though:wave:

Looks great, that pile of parts is awesome, minus the mirrors but eh they're not bad. Are you gonna do what he did with the skoda faces and needles in your cluster?
