Hey bud.. your visors.. did you paint the end clip and the tabs black?

I'm having mine done at the moment but obviously the clip and the tiny tube would be grey still?

Yes mate, I have sprayed the hinged end and that tiny tube bit, as this is the only part that I couldn't find OEM replacement.

What did you use to tint rear lights?

They are oem tinted lights mate. I just applied strips of lamin-x film to the white reversing light bits, so they don't stick out that much.

Test fitted Polo GTI mfsw and Audi A1 stalks. Better looking stalks than standard Caddy stalks imho. This is only gonna stay on temporary, until all the bits and bobs arrive for my hybrid Golf mk7 stalks and gloss black bezel for my red stitch R-line mfsw.

ImageImagethat looks perfect in there mate I’ve just made a steering wheel up for my t6 I used polo gti buttons on a mk7 wheel kept the mk7 dsg paddles as they light up white to match the dsg heats in the t6 and then got a new airbag and silver trim off a guy I know that sells a lot of caddy and t6 bits, went for plain trim just because I’m not a fan of badges

Thanks lads for your kind words.
@Berger You are right, the same buttons work on Caddy and T6.

Was modifying my CSR roof spoiler to suit barn door. Cut it in half and patched up the open ends with fiberglass/epoxy. Then fiberglass filler, lots of sanding, more filler and more sanding... I think it's ok now. Offered up just to see how it lines up, should look good once colour coded.

Nice work mate. I’ve got one of those sitting here waiting for exactly the same treatment.
