So you did mod/get a new cluster then. That's my next mod, I still have not received it yet in the mail though, when I get it, I'll post up pics. Could be a while though because it's coming in from Europe.
OK, I just met up with my buddy and got my air bag mod. I took a picture of it for this thread but I haven't had a chance yet to put it on the airbag. I will sometime today, hopefully.
The ".:R" logo is a lot more chromie in person. The pic really makes it look bad, but in person, it looks amazing!
I have a MK4 .:R32 steering wheel and I have new cluster gauge faces coming in from Bulgaria with .:R logos on it as well, this mod makes it all come together and I think it looks more complete with it, so that's why I got it.
As you know i polished my door snap-arms (made of stainless-steel).
Because i wasnÂ´t satisfied with itÂ´s look, i gave a set away for chrome plating.
This is , how it looks installed:
OEM, Polished, Chrome plated:
Because the hatch insert, wasnÂ´t matching to the door panels, i decided to let it cover with black nappa-leather.
THX for looking
An Updated commentary from me is in order:
I've stated: At the very least you live up to your appellation: CaptainFantastic!
Updated with supplement: The Modest King of Modding
So CaptainFantastic: The Modest King of Modding
BTW: We other MORTALS could never pull off-------- even a fraction-------- of what you have demonstrated:
1)We all have a full time job plus; and if we have a wife especially in North America they'd SQUAWK about the time AND the money you've expended So after Round ONE few left!
2)Most of us on PW get SMACKED (out of left field) with Maintenance or Reliability ISSUES that preclude (KILL) further modding. And those who are real auto guys like Bullit62; VAGGuy; ScottsPassat2.8.... apparently expend all of their auto thought process to maintenance versus that of modding. Moreover most all of us have reviving MIGRAINES with PW posts (driveability issues; CEL#s etc, etc.) So who's really left after Round Two!
3) So with the above, most of us find......... that is......... those of us who
may be left remaining to overcome #1 and #2.... are few and far between.... AND
4) We need SOME SLEEP Everyone has gotten knocked out (TKO'd) except CaptainFantastic The Modest King of Modders
5) 99.9% of us HAVE the above four constraints
PLS share with us HOW you are able to do what no one else apparently comes even close in terms of being CaptainFantastic: The Modest King of Modders.
I got to believe I'm not the only one that harbors this train of logic
As always thanks Michael for sharing your stage with us.
Hmm I have no issues when it comes to modding the car. But, im 17 years old and on summer break. I overcome 1-5 by working on my car till 1am, working everyday of summer, putting every bit of money to my car, and sleep in.
but how do you do it all....
While I'm here Michael,
I'm in truly the LAST phase of installing the Skoda Center Vent. Sides DONE.
My "dilemna" is how to access the rear of the Hazard Light Switch wiring so
that I can connect to the Skoda! The only way I see that being done given
the cramped quarters is to remove Glove box: correct?
Tks Michael and SORRY!
PS: You could PM with response and I'll EDIT (remove this post!)
IÂ´ll post it here. Maybe somebody needs this information too
AFAIK the OEM harness is long enough to pull it up to the vents, Because i have installed the covenience blinking modul (with additional wiring), i had enough wire-lenght and no probs with it.
You have to unplug the wires from the original housing and to plug them into the new socket:
MY wife is the mother of all squawking
I started this thread (see my last post a few hrs ago):
Skoda Center Vent: How access rear of Hazard Light Switch - Passat World Forums
OK so now you've added more description:
CaptainFantastic the Modest King of Henpecked Modders
Altho I drove thru all of the Romance Road to Bavaria as well as worked
with German women I never sensed they would be like women in America
(bit hes)! I was under the impression it's always: "Thou Will OBEY"!
BTW I hope I don't put you in a difficult spot with that long post ABOVE:
You could humour us MORE!
Out of curiousity: What is the divorce rate in Germany?
Last edited by 02GLXWag6stk; 08-16-2009 at 02:02 PM. Reason: last line:div.rate in Germany
And AFAIK the divorce ratio in Germany is on 38%.
DidnÂ´t know that divorcing is possible.
I always thought i could trade my wife for a washing machine and 300 gls. gasoil
wow real nice!
Love your effort: ) sweet ride
Looks great!!! Very nice .:R theme!!! Is the .:R on the steering wheel a sticker? And where did you find the .:R cluster?, so NICE
Thanks a lot! Yes the air bag .:R logo is a sticker, a buddy of mine in town made it for me.
I got my cluster gauge faces custom made from Bulgaria.
Here's a link to the ordering site, takes up to 3 weeks to ship to ya:
IÂ´m not that far with my cluster. Still waiting for an offer..........
Nothing spectacular here.
My instrument cluster bezel will be made end of this month
On flea-bay i found those alloy bezels:
The one at the drivers-side was needed to be bend in radial direction for a perfect fitment.
Thanks to our member HKB5variant iÂ´m the proud owner of the one and only CC-style window switch cu, eurowide
