So far with all your help it has been serviced, repaired and modified. Big plans, but small budget!

Feel free to let me know what you think?

Ok, it's been a while since I've started this post, but I've done a lot of little bots and pieces. :D

Blanked egr, bashed out dpf, fitted new seats from mk7 and wheel and airbag, new stereo and my favourite mod is my new interior lights and sunglasses holder 8)
ImageImageImagei am tempted to paint the mirrors and I'm saving for the wheels, I'm off the fags, so the savings got a boost! :lol:

It's pretty easy, you just cut up an old mk6 wheel and make a boss for th new one, the airbags are compatible :D

this bit needs a bit of workImage the whole thing wasn't to bad a job, worst part lifting the dash in myself and lining up the heater ducts! the heater controls are from the mk6, just needed to swap cable on the temp dial for a longer one, and needed a light switch that had front fogs :)

Right, been asked about the steering wheel abit, here goes,

Take a mk6 wheel, best to get a spare, just incase Imagethen I cut out the marked sectionImage. Next get your new wheel and grind of the boss at the backImagethen bolt the new wheel to the bit cut of the mk6 wheelImage. Cut out the slot for the airbag/horn wires and the main bolt goes through the new wheel centre and the old boss, sandwiching everything together

Thread lock everything and you probably want to disconnect the battery too!

My wheels came today :D but wrong part for the gear selector! Annoying as I wanted to finish the dash!
Fitted the mirror adjuster in the new cup holder and modded the switch, we'll chuffed with the switch, looks good and all the lights work too!ImageImageImageive left them in the hall, so the missus will keep bumping into them, With a bit of luck she'll tell me to just get the tyres on her card so she can get them out the house :)
