Where do i start.

Even tho my v has a fresh custom paint job spent ££££ on

It got a good strong engine and fantastic supporting mods.

I have completely fallen out of love on her I got 4 pages of to do lists to finish before I can even look at getting her sent for map and geo set up.

Looking at least 1500 quid to finish that just parts then getting the time to fit them lucky enough I a mechanic etc so labour is free. It hard juggerling time with working 5/6

Day weeks getting home after 7 each night.

My daughter is 17 months old and growing up so fast and most of my spare time is spending it with her and my partner.

Lucky enough my partner is kinder supportive but doesn't understand how much there left to do etc or me working 5 hours

On it and still looks the same etc even tho I been wiring new looms etc repairing wires fitting components. That are hid behind the dash etc.

I also got to figure out how to mod my standed seat rails to fit my buckets

Also got to refit my fmic and source new custom pipe work so it clears the bumper and goes round the turbo.

Think doing it all on my own with no help gets to me as well sometimes think If someone pushing u to keep going or just orginizing etc.

So I really don't no what to do car cost me in total nearly 18k and I still not there can I keep throwing money at it to get there with will bring total over 20k in 8 years lol.

So today managed to get out on the car

Fitted new rear disc and pads with new bearings etc regressed sliders in calipers.

Now I have a halk leg as I had to change the old brake fluid out which was Black due to old and water etc

Had a self bleader so took about 45 mins and over 1l of 5.1 fluid to get it nice and clear with no air bubbles also re bled the slave cylinder as fitted new etc.

Now I need to do a lot of tidying up in the bay need to sort a good Earth out for the battrey in the rear then run the power cables etc. Also got to sort out all my sensor wires as they in a mess atm got to cable tie them together and make a loom etc.

Luckily I had a spare engine loom so I traced the wires bk to fuse box and soldered new wires on to

The cut ones lol

You don't get to many builds like these in your life.

Especially ones to this standard. You really have/are doing a top job.
