      Just found this link in the Mk 2 FAQ, could provide some help with regard to hiding wiring:

      when using the moroso pop off cap....where do all the lines from the resevoir go?
      are they all just capped off?

      Quote, originally posted by VReihen6 »
      Okay well I'm curious what to do with my coolent resevoir as I have seen people using inline filler knecks, but I was certain our cars need a return line, and also a resevoir for the coolent to expand/contract...

      Quote, originally posted by Elvir »
      Some people just get rid of it. The line that goes from the radiator to the coolant bottle is just tucked somewhere. Over time, the coolant leaks out, not that fast, but eventually, you end up adding coolant about every 2 weeks or so

      Hey Elvir, you gotta link to the inline coolant filler neck? Last night, I started taking off some stuff, like the SAI, N249 and EVAP. And I have a couple of questions on placement for the fluid bottles.
      For example, to remove the PCV, I would need a Oil Catch Can with a breather. But where can I hide the thing?
      Next, power steering reservoir, I think I can reuse the old box, but what are the ideal placement to hide it?
      Finally, the coolant bottle, is all I need is the inline filler neck? I hear the coolant needs to be remote from the engine and needs to be higher for cooling.
      Correct me if I am wrong, I am just not finding a solid answer in my searches.
      TIA!

      i think the shaved engine bays look so much better on the older cars such as mk1s and 2's
      on mk4's, i think the s3 covers and such look amazing

      Hey guys, Im looking for some solutions for the battery relocation left overs.
      Those that relocated the battery, how many of you have re routed the fuse box as well. Ive been looking up at some threads, and many people leave that in the bay, which looks like poo. A lot of clutter left over there
      I am looking for something cleaner than this.

      as well, what gauge are all those wires?

      I think those are mattig cup mirrors. A guy was selling a set last week in the classifieds for like $250.

      I don't have personal exp yet with this, but I think you can either just lengthen the wires and tuck it somewhere (fender, framerail) or you might be able to change out the fuse box for a better designed one that is hidden. That has been my plan for a while, I just haven't done it yet.

      maybe i missed it earlier in this thread, but what i was wondering is what kind of filler are you guys using once you sand and grind down the rough areas in the bay. is it just fiberglass? or some kind of filler putty. bondo is out of the question since we all kno how great that stuff is, but what should i be using?
