      Andrew,
      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

      I saw echo mentioned a sound/heat blanket. Is that the fabric piece behind the engine? I'm considering removing mine altogether as it appears that it is slowly coming off and looks ugly. Any tips on removing it? Thanks.

      Again, great thread.

      Coming from you, that really means a lot man. I appreciate it.

      That's something I wouldn't remove at all.

      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.

      Any 1" plug will suffice.

      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...

      Thanks PSU. I need to find out what adhesive he used then. Must be some pretty heavy duty stuff I would imagine.

      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...

      Mine started falling down right after I did the noise pipe delete. I went and got some outdoor mounting tape (double sided tape) and it has worked great so far.

      Mind linking me an image of what you used? I'd think the standard school/home office supply stuff wouldn't work. lol.

      I used this stuff http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...atalogId=10053, I have almost a whole roll left over. I can bring it with me to Sowo and you can have as much as you need to fix yours.

      If you'd be so kind as to do that, I'd greatly appreciate it, sure.

      Just jump in there and have at it, LOL! I was the same way, but I was one of the ones that then PM'd PSU, LOL! Once I started doing it though, I found all kinds of stuff I can do that wasn't included... You just need to look at it carefully and take your time... Start in one area of your engine bay, work there, then once you're done in that area and satisfied move onto another area...

      Can anyone post a pic of the plug? Is it a rubber cap for PVC pipe? I'm trying to picture this before I head up the home depot


      Thanks for this PSU!! Guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

      I can try and get a pic of it up today... It's a rubber plug yes, like I said 1 1/16" by 7/8"... It isn't a cap, it's an actual tapered plug...
