Yes, 6C0.
There's plenty of discussion on the forum about this, no need to go off topic on this thread.

Made a start on sound proofing.
Picked up some Car Builders Stage 1, similar to Dynamat I think. Available locally here in Adelaide, so worth a try. Cheaper too. Doing the rear “window” panels and wheel arches to start with, then rear roof, cabin roof and anywhere else I can get it into. Here’s a couple of the usual “started sound proofing” pics. Aiming for a bike/camper build, so see how we get on.

Started work on the rear floor, going to be a false floor with some storage space

Going to have to leave a little bit of room on the side of the top panel for the insulation and carpet that will be going on the arches (forgot to leave this space around the base board but it's not going to get taken out)ImageImage

That ok sir?

Have you fitted your wheels yet fella?
I am about to pull the trigger on a set from them with the same dimensions.....the site 'willtheyfit' seems to suggest the poke will be considerable? I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if 30.4mm at the front and 40.1mm at the rear will work, while still being able to open the door?

@novakid
Yep full carpet on ply, I've got some stuff that was in it when I got it, but it's all splitting on the back side where it curves, so I may just do new. Will be carpet on all metal though, and carpeting the roof panels too, just need to work out how I'm going to have the rear interior lights coming thru the carpet.

Loaded up and went camping for the weekend with the missus. We’re just by Trearddur Bay on Anglesey.

Spent the day working on the back, really pleased with how it turned out, wish I'd had more time but had to go to work. Working on my tan/sunburn too. Even managed time for a nice walk with the woof

Just a few little bits over the last 2 weeks.

Few bits you can’t see, changed the oil and fitted new front pads.

Image
Fitted a rear sill protector, to help stop marking the rear bumper when moving hay. Oh and removed the rear wiper.

Image
Love this sunglasses holder.

Image
Fitted a touran leather armrest to fit in better with the seats.

Image
Fitted a set of scirocco clocks as I wanted KPH rather than MPH, Stan was a great help with the coding.

Image
And hands down the best mod I’ve done so far, I got a engine cover off a superb and just popped off the skoda logo and fitted a bonnet pad off a 2018 caddy life. The difference is amazing! It’s so so much quieter inside, I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone, unbelievably so much better inside.

Nice mods mate, I see you’ve kept the caddy dials on the Rocco clocks, did you not like the Rocco dials ?
I’ve done the mod and much preferred them to the caddy ones Image

@r1lea
What clocks/ dials are these?
Assuming the dial is the graduated part, what part is the clock? Image
