Thanks Jason, not tried it out yet but it has a lot of functions ie, it can read all fault codes via canbus and clear them. I'm most likely going to remove both my gauges as it can read boost/oil temp with a few extra supporting mods for the boost.

It's taking a while for things to get back on track due to overwhelming workload, holidays and festivities at the paint shop.

As you can see from the above pics, we found some corrosion on the bonnet hinges and the underside of the bonnet (where it is attached). I'm told that all VW's (as with most cars) are painted from factory with the bonnet attached. Therefore this area has very little epoxy primer/paint and is more vunerable to corrosion especially on older cars? Luckily we've caught this in time.

So hopefully now things are back to normal and it won't be long before the '32 is returning home for a full detail....

:)

The above is a new genuine rear glass. I've also bought new rear quarter glass as the rubber seals get damaged during removal (or become brittle with age).

Hi, yes I got mine via TPS 'on back order' they said but arrived within a week.

I did consider the mk5 handle (with camera) a while back but decided to go clean n simple

Great work guys, I think mine in the mighty land down under will hopefully get some of the level of TLC you guys are giving out.

Few little areas req touching up. So I think if it is worth doing do it and do it properly. Hence asking about the glass.

TPS is ? sorry should know i guess just been little out of touch of late.

Might just be easier to get items in the mother country and bring them to the land of lessor spotted roo.

Sorry Rich If slightly off track.
