I built a mk2 golf g60 a few years ago, cost me £1k with a bit of wheeler dealing
Wish I still worked in the trade now

Test of the wiring for the (free Image) all in one pc.
USB, 12v and volt meter all in, just got to source a cheap battery to eliminate flattening the main one.
All runs off a switch through a 40a relay for now

It was thrown away and locked, to many hobbies means I fix a lot of things
Bit gutted the hu only has aux in on the front and no rear inputs
Looks like I might have to spend some money on another one

Little update,
Got hold of some forever black, pretty good stuff

Image

Don’t worry, I’ll soon be swapping those rusty bolts over Image
Also scored some wood floor insulated underlay for free of course, 15m roll of it should do the roof/floor/sides.
Moved the sub box to under the drivers seat, much better massage Image

Do you think that forever black will be good to use on the door sills because mine are that horrible grey colour

I would think so mate, I’ll be doing mine eventually and the a pillars.
I tested a couple of bits before this and found warming it up with a heat gun as it’s being applied gives a more even finish

It dose look a bit more factory if you spray it just looks like it has been sprayed tbh I’ve had some vans in the past that have had plastics painted to smarten them up for sale after a few months just starts falling off

For colouring light plastics it’s the best I’ve seen.
