      Thanks!

      Progress lately has slowed since I have actually been driving it! Yeay!

      Unfortunately the time has come this week-end to put her away for the winter, so the fun will begin once more!

      Some powder coating, some new parts, retro med and improved interior, etc (can't spill all the beans!).

      Oh and access to a newly installed lift! Oh yeah!

      Ok so I have been a bit occupied with some DD repairs.....



      But now back to my main project....

      One seat done and test fit







      So now to get seat 2 done, and also got some new plastic bits for the seat, getting hard to find, more on that later.

      Also began to tidy up the rest of the interior. Got the corrado column cover and began to trim it to fit, it will need some massaging






      Now going to fit a audi TT center console instead fo the corrado one I have tried to fit, I find it will look uch better and overall dientions will be better.

      This is the tes fit, alredy know will need to ove the hand brake over and get it higher up to atch up to the console, but i think it will be worth it. once the rough parts are done I will upholster it to match the seats etc.











      More to come, got a fw more things on the go, now just need to time to get it all done right!

      Big thanks to Tim at Velocity upholstery for the awsome work on the new covers, I'll be sending him all the other parts to get trimmed up once they are ready.

      Thanks for looking, sorry for the crappt cell phone pics, more soon!!

      i was thinking of going the same route you did for a corrado dash swap (shaving the door panels), but i went with cutting the dash and narrowing it, the reason was because the shifter was hitting the dash
      did you swap out the shifter with a different one or some thing?

      Well IMHO the shifter and the dash width are 2 seperate things. Back when I installed I did not want to shorten it since alot of finishing or recovering would be required. Also the lower panels et. But if I could do it today I actually would recover the dash, but not cut it shorter. I obviously did cut the depth.

      As for the shifter, I have the own one and mo issues, I do have a short shift kit, but even then it does not touch at all. You may have not trimmed it far enough depth-wise.

      when i did get the depth, it got a little to tight between the doors, so i decided to narrow the dash it self, but I'm at the point were I'm almost done with it though

      i like that Audi tt center console, looks real good, I am still debating on if i want to put one in or not

      You can put the front section of the corrado where the shifter is, and leave the rest out, that can look cool, I am just stubborn and like the cup holders

      that's what I was thinking about doing, but i kinda want it a little bit more open, and just get an old school shifter boot with the chrome plate around the bottom edge and bolt it down to the floor, kinda give it an old school feel to it

      yeah that is the only flaw i can think of with scirocco's, no cup holder

      but one of my work boots works perty well holding my drinks

      not much done so far this week, but I got to work on the column cover again. There once were 2....



      Then there began to be one......



      So on to the fiberglass and hopefully finishing for the bottom half



      Now trimming and test fitting alignment of the upper half while the fiberglass sets



      still working on the handbrake / console issues, and finishing the driver seat cover install.

      well this week end has not been too fruitful, but I did figure out that I will not be able to fit the corrado cluster into my car sice there is just no room for it!

      SOOOOO..... off to plan B, I will keep my oe cluster and just mod the trim to look more oem. Back in the day I had taken the corrado trim, inserted a bezel from a MK2 jetta and filled the side gaps with plastic like so:



      So the next step I will now fuse the 2 trims together and remove the side fillers, fiberglass the face and mold the wole thing into one part, smooth it out and then paint all the dash trim black again. And yes the aurcraft switches will be coing out.....and yes they are actual boeing switches!

      Pulled out my back seats to send out the covers and re-trim them to match the fronts.

      Also sourced another TT console and bits so I can take the 2 TT consoles and make one, I wanted to relocate the handbrake but it will be easier for me to mod the console, so more plastic welding in my future!



      Hopefully more progress soon, and pics.

      Also I a now looking to update my cluster to the later one that has the temp guage wgere my upshift light is, anyone have one please pm me! Preferable in km/h.

      later!

      Well I was able to get the first steps started on the guage basel today, centered it all up and got the first layer of fiberglass on, if all goes well I will stop at the shop on the way home tomorrow and begin the first layers of putty to blend it all in.





      Also have a little clearance issue with the seat adjuster and the center console, but I have a little trick up my sleeve for that one......



      My VW parts guy really came thru and got me a whole new set of seat plastic trims for my recaros! Not many of those around anymore.

      Ya, actually I had gotten 2 corrado clusters in hopes of fitting one, and using the other to test fitting/ cutting etc, but there really is no room for it. The cluster need to go too far in and the
      Metal bracing that holds the oem steering column is too high and forward to allow the corrado cluster.
      I have opted to not fight to get the cluster in, I'll put the time and effort elsewhere since the alternate guage solution will nit be so bad at a once done.

      well, i am going to try and mix the the corrado cluster and the rocco one, I'm going to try to use the speedometer from the corrado and use the RPM gauge from the rocco but use the plate from the corrado, and I'm not sure how I'm going to set up the gas gauge, i was thinking of making a new plate to replace the old one by using the old gauge and rewire it, still not 100% sure on that tho

      Well I have tried to physically fit the corrado cluster and the casing itself will not clear unless you extensively modify tge scirocco sheetmetal that holds the steering column.

      I understand what you are trying to do but unless you can create a completely new housing from scratch you may need to go another route... Unless I missed something

      Btw you can source a Passat 16v console with maf it is about identical to the corrado and should wireup easily, plus the speedo is a cable like the Rocco .

      well the plan is to some how use the guts from the rocco cluster, and rig everything together, its going to be a little tough but worth it

      as for the seat adjusters, you can swap the backrests from one side to the other. but you probably already know that.

      Small update, I got the guage cluster all finished up and I am redoing all the dash trim in black oem finish instead of the silver I had done a few years back, also taking out the aircraft switches and putting back oem style corrado switches to deal with my extra stuff (aux fan on switch in case and so on).

      I also got the guage cluster apart to do the usual fluorescent color change on the needles, I am going to add the chrome rings and some better lighting. I have a cool light idea I will be trying, hope it works.

      More pics later, just a few for now....



      and the bezel before final finishing and paint



      I have some parts getting machined and some adapters I am making to retrofit a TT handbrake etc.......and an upcoming week off work so I get alot more scirocco time coming up
      Old sciroccos never die....they just go faster....sometimes.......

      Nice attention to detail, and I like the fact that you are going back to OEM on gage face & switches.
