[mention]RY_VW [/mention] I left them on, easy enough to apply and sealed the edges with a little help from my heat gun

Started changing my Mk4 Caddy headlights to Xenon OEM units.

First step was a right pain - Cutting the wiring loom tape back so that the plugs stretch to the new position on the Xenon units.

Took ages and much swearing - didn't quite cut through any wires !
I'll have to re-wrap when I get some of that Scapa Rayon loom tape stuff - OEM Stylee (thanks TommyZoom and all)

Taking off the bumper wasn't too bad - The hidden screw was OK given the hints on how to find it in the How To :thumbsup:
Pops off nicely but I bet it is a bit more trouble going the other way.

Coded in using Docs guide and OBDEleven, and then fitted in headlight units easily enough.

Right Pain #2 - Trying to get the beams aligned.
I had marked out the beam patterns on the garage door with some masking tape.
Changed one headlight at a time so that I could see the original LH alignment vs new RH headlight.
There must be an easy way, but it took me ages to get it almost OK for the RH unit.

Next LH Unit ... Sticks out at the back corner and still never gets to point to the right spot :roll: still pointing left a bit too much for my liking, compared to the original units.
I guess I will have to get my garage man to have a go ...

Tomorrow : Get the bumper back on !
...Hopefully

Managed to order an engine cover on eBay for £40 inc postage and it looks in decent condition, amazing what happens when you make an offer rather than paying full price!

Ordered side rail cover

Found fuse to sort fog lights and interior lights (must have blown it last week when did roof insulation, doh!) Why dont VW have fuse layouts in manuals or fuse box lids... Arrgghhh

Lifted ply floor to find dirty but undamaged body, so quick clean with some carb cleaner :o :o :o and whacked down some insulation and got the floor back down all in the space of a couple of hours. Hoping that will quieten the back down wee bit as the sound deadening and insulation up sides and roof didn't make too much difference.

Anyone know what the mount thingys are called for the engine cover?
