Today’s wee upgrade was to swap over the window controls from 4 button to 2 button after a little prep and hydrodipping

Salvaged Touran door handle rubbed down, primed and sprayed gloss black
Image

Image

Hydrodipping attempt #1… missed a bit and tried to double dip a small patch, fail! When dipping, the underside of the film has a clear soluble film layer, this stops any subsequent dip from joining, unless removed and even then it’ll look pretty pants!

Image

And finally, dip #3 (#2 had a bubble in in the film that I missedImage)

Image

Armed with a couple of wiring schematics, pin tool and some tape, out with the old.
Image

Repinning instead of cut, solder and heat shrink

Image

Plug repinned and tested Image

Image

Tada! In and working!
Image

Sometimes it’s the small, unlikely to be noticed changes that give the most satisfaction

Cheers guys!

Just kinda treading water waiting to acquire a nice 3.2 V6 donor car… then air suspension, then a respray, then… start again

[mention]Darylg21 [/mention] no, I’ve done a few other small parts on the van, however it was 12 months ago.
