As some of you will have seen I swapped my anni dor a well known black and cream vw passat 1.8t.

Not go any pics of the car yet as weathers been crap but have been doing work on the interior.

Now some people will like wood trim bur I hate it after 5 years of rover ownership. So there was no way the wood trim was staying so out came the 3m carbon wrap.

Centre console trim before :sick:


And after  :cool:



Fitted


And then a few other random bits



Just got to do front ashtray now and rwplace the wood wheel and gearknob for black leather jobbies and shes done.

And then onto exterior plans

Even though I don't particularly like carbon wrap, it's one hell of a lot better than fake wood.  :whistle:

Not to worry tbh I dont mind wrapping them though as a quick blast with a hair dryer and can be returned to standard

Then im going to risk a remap on a 180k engine :grin:

Well my new rims came today and I'm over the moon with them, need some spacers for the rear but the are on order now. Few quick pics as was pissing it down just need some centre caps for em as well.






And another edition is eBay gear knob to replace wooden one.



Just need to wrap the ashtray and loose wooden wheel and I'm done with interior.

Getting quotes to have all lower plastics and bumpstrips colour coded,ordering a set of fk front lights in black and off on rollers soon as we'll

As all ways thoughts and opinions welcome

Only downside to white rims is they get dirty quickly

Each to there own as they say, not happy though as just had a sodding something hit the side of one and take a small chip out of the face.

I am actually thinking of having them done pure white.
