    Ness

    This isn't really a build thread more of a log so I can remember how much not to tell the boss I have spent.
    When I got Ness a 1.9td short wheelbase 2002 51 plate t4, she had 20" wheels on and alloy arch spats, she had the mustard yellow momo front seats (still does) and a red momo seat in the back with curtains.
    I'm the time I have had her I have fitted new insulated flooring and carpet with a bongo split rear seat on runners. I have also fitted a sub (in my opinion essential for a nice clear sound) I have also fitted split charge and 240v electrics and a tv in the rear. I have changed the Bluetooth don't head unit for my alpine flipout dvd player linked to the tv in the rear so it has a cinema sound!!
    I have also fitted a bleed valve on the turbo and a boost gauge (just fitted a second as the first was so noisy even with a filter in the line.
    More updated to come!!

    Oh and almost forgot. For her first mot with me I had to replace rear sliders on the calipers and a bush on the front suspension. And other maintenance. And fitting a set of proper load rated 17" alloy wheels and tyres.
    Move on 10 months and my brother-in-law bought himself a 2001 51 plate caravelle (he got a bargain!! Git!!!!)

    Looks like a lush drive.
    Understandable that you removed those heinous chrome arches.

    I have heard of people fitting the passat hazard switch so that the boost gauge can be fitted, I decided that I didn't want to mess about with moving things around so I fitted a pod in the pocket over the fuse box and put the gauge in there. I know it's not in your face, but it's not something you will be looking at all the time so it suits fine. Pic to follow.

    Lol love it. Not thinking of going the CB way (shock horror I know it's near mandatory!!)
    I enjoy not being contactable whilst diving.
