That’s going to look great when fitted mate. Your pace of work on this van is relentless! I’d be a) bankrupt and b) divorced.

The dash only cost me £30. I do love a bargain 😁
As you can see it’s a bit of a mess but nothing a good old fashioned clean wouldn’t sought out.
Was going to fit it this weekend but the weather doesn’t look good so I will have to wait a couple of weeks before I can get it in😢

As for bankrupt and divorced. The Mrs just lets me get on with it as long as the bills are paid and she get what she wants she’s happy😁 and I just have to work harder sometimes 😁

That is a bargain indeed! Not the first bargain you’ve had I’ve been envious of.

I don’t think I could do a build without some bargains.
Gave the touran dash a good clean today completely stripped it down. Never seen so much dirt and dust in one dash.

That’s true mate. These little vans get expensive!! I’m looking forward to seeing it fitted mate.

Ah no! I'm guessing this means your injector's buggered..?! Just waiting for this to happen to mine. VW should bloody pay for these!

Yeah I think they should as it’s a common fault.
I don’t know if it’s just the Bosch ones

The injector curse strikes again
Hope you get it fixed soon mate. The newer ones are more reliable I believe mate.

Master cylinder and new clutch for me this month. Seemingly another Caddy classic! :cry:

@Sean1066 are they still the original injectors? I had one go last August so swapped all 4, I don't know how OCD you are about parts but I picked up all 4 injectors from a place called ukdieselparts for £991, that included the o rings and copper washers that fit properly, so you just need stretch bolts from vw. I've done the best part of 15,000 miles since changing them and had a stage 1 remap at dubunit and have had no problems at all. They're genuine Siemens injectors they just don't have the VW part number, I just matched up the Siemens part no. From the new spec VW injectors to the ones these guys supply. Hope you get it sorted dude.

Amazing effort on this van, who'd have thought it's ex BG now!? You should do a photo shoot, would be great to see the full effect in a nice setting.
