Right so I’ve kept the wrap, might use it one day.

I ordered some of the headlights from travelin-lite today that are due for delivery on 16th March. Windscreen is being replaced on Wednesday.

Headlights were waiting for me when I got home.

Windscreen has now been replaced. I ordered an airtec intercooler to go behind the mk7.5 gti bumper last week.

I’ve been asked to fit the bumper before it’s painted as it’s slightly warped during the plastic welding process so I’m going to spend a few hours fitting the intercooler, headlights and front bumper (in primer) when the cooler is delivered. Paint is going to be the best part of £1k I think but the van will be fully de-textured and colour coded for that including VAT.

I’ll pull my finger out and get the brakes painted and fitted soon, maybe when I am stood down from work to isolate, inevitable as I work on London public transport. Hopefully age is on my side at 28.

In other news the government have extended the IR35 legislation so, where’s that TFSI.... on the look out for a MK5 dsg gti? K04? Hmm....

Had a good weekend. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

So I managed to get the intercooler fitted, headlights and the front bumper. On Saturday I fitted the towbar - just need to wire it all up. The towbar wiring is the thing stopping me from fitting the ply lining on the O/S.

Dropped the van off to get painted this afternoon. When I am back from work on Saturday it’ll be all done, list below.

Front bumper colour coded.
Rear bumper de-textured and colour coded.
Door handles colour coded.
Mirror caps gloss black.
Rear number plate light thing colour coded.
Rub strips de-textured and colour coded.

After that for the exterior it’ll be the 18z’s painted yellow with the rear callipers painted to match and a wheel refurb/new wheels.

I’ve been sent some photos by the painter. Absolutely love the van now. If I can find a cheap mk5 gti dsg I’m going to tfsi concert it. Seems silly to have spent so much money and have it looking so good with a 1.6 tdi!
