      Bought pretty much all of my new interior parts today. Can't wait for spring to get everything installed. It won't be anything crazy, but I'm pretty excited about it

      Polo 6n bushings I'm on konis; did everything I could to get lower, but I'm really happy with where I'm at. Any lower and it'll be on air.

      And of course, I'll always better willing to give people advice even though it might not be the best. I've certainly learned a lot after all this; I'd do it a lot different if I had a garage and the time/money. I'm a full time student with a full time job so taking the semester off to do this was a big commitment.

      It has two red leds that illuminate the center console area as an accent light. A black W8 console with a sunroof switch is incredibly incredibly rare

      Yeah when I was looking at them long ago I don't ever remember seeing a black one, but that red accent actually does seem pretty awesome. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for one in the far future

      this is all so nuts because 1.) You did this all in the street.(wire tuck and all) 2.) It seems like you drank insane amounts of beer through the process. 3.) you didn't think of just getting rid of the bastard! and 4.) you did it all relatively quick!

      Honestly, if you have the tools, I'd say it's really not that hard, just time consuming. Engine lift, soldering iron, MIG, basic hand tools, supplies, and a brain. If you can get those things you should be able to make it out alive. If I did it again I'd do less soldering and more depinning

      Did the headliner this weekend. Not too happy with the results, but it's good enough.

      I actually returned the previous threads and picked up this. Not a stretchy, but I love the dark plum color!


      Starting the pillars. You can see the difference of the color the way the sun hits it.


      Making a mess!


      More or less the final result. Color looks really light in pics. I'll have to take some with my dslr when I get the chance



      I have so much respect for upholsterers after doing this job. I honestly don't think I'd do this again.
