Not only does this tighten up and clean up the bay, it shows true creativity and innovation that I would not have recognized without showing us what you did. I can see why VW chose not to do this on the production line, but you keep "pushing the envelope" in subtle ways that are visually distinct with some function, too. Bravo!
Who is PSU? He is the .:R32 Driver who makes functional and visual changes to the car's look and performance. He's kinda like one of the Three Bears. He doesn't do too much or too little. He does what is just about right.

We are actually going to relocate a small odyssey battery to the foam tool/spare well trim, and working on moving the fuse box to the rain tray... It'll work just a bit of persuasion and a possible reforming of the case, but its doable, and easier than relocating to the god d*mn glovebox. To clean and camo the wires coming off the fusebox I'm gonna use some dei thermal wrap on those and make a new brushed aluminum waterfall piece, Which will also hold vacuum lines for the 42dd boost manifold. It should be done by next season but feel free to do it also
Tarmacs cut it close.

what do you use to cap the winshield washer fluid reservoir??
dubnick32 had the same problem with his falling off but he found a solution. He used some adhesive and then used a tennis ball or something to hold the insulation in place while the adhesive dried.
I have yet to touch mine.
Did alot of this stuff this past weekend (except the windshielf wiper fluid tank), can't seem to find a plug for it just yet... But the rest looks great! Question PSU, did you do anything with the backside of the engine? There are alot of wires back there as well, but didn't really see any way I could hide them to well... I got a couple ideas I'm going to play with, just thought I'd ask...
So, I finally finished this up yesterday... Looks so much better! I used a 1 1/16" x 7/8 plug for the wiper fluid tank, worked like a charm and found like 50 of them at Home Depot
On another note, looks like it's specifically the MKIV R32 coolant tank that swaps with ours, tried getting a regular MKIV GTI one yesterday and the connector is on the opposite side so it kinda sticks out there a bit... Haven't looked at a MKIV R32 one yet, anyone know if it's the same way? If so, I think I'll just either leave mine of cut it...
