    Forgot about that stuff..... near the end of last year I had the idea of getting some "SubtleTint" for my mk3 Polo & put it on my tinted lights

    So, I might do that with the Jetta lights if the usual tinting ain't enough mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 910343

    Something new...... but what???

    mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 SPM_A0618

    New mirrors mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 Icon_biggrin made by Mattig

    mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 SPM_A0619

    mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 SPM_A0620

    The old mirror's turned out to be electric, just not connected up....... I'll be keeping hold of them

    mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 910343

    ......

    Think I've finally fixed the leak on the radiator (thank god)...... theres an flange/elbow with 2 bolts through it on the top of the radiator & water was leaking out around it..... tried a new O ring on it & it leaked less, tried a thicker O ring & when I nipped the bolts up it pulled the 2 threaded, brass, hex inserts out of the radiator mk2 Golf 2.9 VR6 - Page 2 Icon_surprised ...... so removed them completely, fitted longer bolts with nuts & large washers on the underside

    Matt's is 2.8..... but has Schrick cam's & a 6 branch

    It will be heavier than mine with it been 5dr & leather interior.... tyre's are slimmer..... he had more fuel than me...... & it could do with a re-map

    Jacked to car up next to my garage the other night..... jacked up the passenger side first & didn't realise the side door of the garage was up against the drivers side rear quarter Sad .... heard a creek from the other side while I was jacking it up, but cos I was rushing (getting dark) I didn't look into what the noise was

    Those front seats look spot on, really nice. Gutted for you about the dents down the side, that's such a bummer!
