    Thanks Richard, yes I'm figuring it will be a good little goer! Ryco, cognoscenti, pff... care not, they would likely have parted her out and sent her silver pealing french steel to get melted down and made into widgets. I even used cheap oil from supercheap to do an initial short run oil change "crazy!"

    I must say I do enjoy taking dodgy parts off a car and returning it back to how it should be, it's very satisfying. This car has a matching number engine, and all the original missing or modified parts have been sourced except for a one last dash part. With a new paint job this little silver GTI will be a sweet car.

    One last dash part may be a reality, lot better than lots of pieces! One bad break to repair only on end under drivers end. Glovebox is a treat! Lock will come out again to match mine so keep the lock for yours. Now to get it to you. Its a shade of black too, sorry!

    Far better to use Purflux filters, better quality, cheaper and you can remove them easily by using the special tool.

    Thanks Matt, sounds like an amazingly generous offer, please send me some photos over email so I can tease the driver! Black, did you paint it as part of your repairs?

    Thanks Graham, I appreciate the advice, most of my comments are a bit tongue in cheek... I do like the removal tool, although I've never had an issues getting filters off. This filter is only going to be used for a few runs so I'll see about the purflux for the the next oil change. Do you get yours from EAI or ebay?

    Yes coloured it, might be removeable. It was out of one of magdicks cars which was a different colour to mine he pinched the winder plugs they were black and the dash and all its contents.

    A little tinkering today.

    Removed dodgy wires from previously mentioned possible fuel pressure switch. It was likely a water sensor on aftermarket water separator/filter now also gone.



    Inlet manifold cleaned up a bit, crickey it was covered in crud, a small puddle draining out of the plenum



    Looking a bit more complete



    And the pie was excellent

    Will dig out the central aircon duct fitting today and send it to Melbourne! East Hawthorne? Anything else small?

    Nice work coming together.
