I don't know about what I did. But I brought one. Does that count? Image

@stedlocks I’m not taking it all out at once, took the headlining in the back down then just the bits to take the front headlining down. All the front will go up before I take the next bit down.
If I took the whole lot down it would feel daunting, I’d lose bits and Mrs would have a go

Nice to see you painted the sun visors, I was debating on wether to or to get them covered. Going to try paint and see how long it lasts

[mention]Papa Bear [/mention] yeah the sunvisors are actually holding up ok so far but I think the pull down handles will scratch easily. Time will tell

It's on the 'to do' list @Papa Bear :D
The reason is asked you round was simple :D I've been on 12.5 hour Nightshifts 17.30 - 06.00. 12 days on, 2 days off, since 20th Jan, and still have six weeks to go. It's been a bit of a nightmare, as I don't actually have the time to do much myself :cry:
I'm in bed for 06.30, and get up about 2.00pm, showered and dressed, Coffee read the news, potter about for an hour or so, and then I'm almost ready to set off again :cry: :cry:

Once I'm back on my normal day-shift, and not having to do every other weekend it'll be full steam ahead, :lol: and I'll either look at removing and painting, or trying the covers route, as I have been impressed with those I've seen advertised (retro trims) on here.

@deany123 will try painting the grab handles, if it doesn’t work, may swap them for genuine black but don’t know how well the colour will match

Got entire clutch assembly replaced at dealership. Here (in South Africa) that would cost 1250UKP. Fortunately I have an extended warranty so they paid the first 900UKP. First repair I've had done in 5 and a half years. Warranty just paid for itself, and then some! :D

Spiced up the engine cover I brought for my caddy. Might add a few little extra details later on the VW logo and the tdi ImageImage
