      I just used a DIY for installing a Mk3 center console into my Mk2. I found it in a search and it worked great, took me 30 minutes! I think it should be added but I'm not that computer savy to add it myself.

      lol, it's simple grab the link from the adress bar ( it's the bar on your screen http://www. ------ .com in it.) and highlight it by holding the left click of your mouse over the address ( the "http://www. ------ .com") and then right clicking it with the mouse, copy, come back here go to reply right click again and hit paste

      sweet links.

      the corrado dash swap links are not correct though.
      both of them take you to a vr6 swap diy.

    30. 02-13-2006 12:17 PM #34
      People really do underestimate the search tool. I should do a DIy on it lol, I found most (if not all) those using the search tool

    31. 02-13-2006 12:33 PM #35
      Amazing that you didnt find the old 14 page DIY in that search then...

      Oh well bump for the new one.

      Just checked the old one. Why was it unstickied, and it appears you cant post in it anymore. Heres a link to the origional DIY post. Theres just about everything imaginable in there if you feel like taking the time to look through it. Mabey someone should consolidate it...
