My cheap 2nd hand wheels came off a Audi and it had some RS center caps so I replaced them with some Blue VW ones. Just a small touch ImageImage

Just installed cruise control. Easy job. Only had to program engine for some reasons.
Not to get a MFSW. Not sure what to get yet. I want to keep my airbag I think but a flat bottom would be nice. Would also like to change to highline gauges. Image

Just installed the center dash box with lid. Looks so much better then the open tray.

Also got the blue rings for the air vents which I am also really happy with. Image

I have been in touch with darkside developments about my ride heights for the front springs. They really pulled through and sent me some slightly lower one's. Very happy with their service even though im in NZ. Whilst installing them I took the time to paint my rusty rotors black and calipers red. Not sure if I like the red now. Maybe black would have been a better option. Image

Did a bit more work on the van this weekend.
Changed the rear badge to black one, change sided blinkers to blacked out ones, rear wiper delete and covered the front headlining.ImageImageImage

Have run an extra wire for the cabin light backlight and also some extras for the rain sensor that I have on order which should be here anytime soon. I also run a microphone for the head unit that clips into the cabin light. There is also 4G aerials for the head unit that I have put just above the windscreen. Now I'm cable wrapping them all together and 3D printed some clips to retain it to the frame in the holes that are already there. ImageImage

Got all my wiring done and headlining in. I started insulating with dacron but used up what I had pretty quick. It was going to end up expensive so changed over to fibreglass insulation. Way cheaper and was able to do the whole van.ImageImage
