    Swapping sausages - TDI conversion thread

    So in exchange for building me a roof I offered to do a TDI swap for Dave Sausages.

    Easy job right? Lets hope so, I'll try to document the process here....

    I'm an eletronics engineer, used to work for a world leading company designing looms for all sorts of vehicles and aerospace applications, I'm pretty particular about wiring - more than a bit of OCD related hatred for bodges/preinsulated terminals/scotch locks and other half arsed fuck muppetry.

    This sort of shit makes my blood boil,

    I'll definitely keep up with this, wanna see what's involved and if it's possible I can do it myself.

    Sell my T4 ? I'd rather stick wasps up my butt !!!

    Ta. Feel better now
    I would love some banded wheels but I can imagine the conversation trying to get them legalized.

    Why are your wheels like this?
    I had them cut in half and a strip welded in.
    By the manufacturer? ??
    No. By a random man in a shed I met through the internet.

    They just wouldn't understand.
