Check out eBay.co.uk.

My wire let go and I bout the whole lifter assembly including motor for 132ukp plus 37ukp shipping. 2nd hand of course.

A cheaper local repair might suit too of course.

This looks interesting.

Got some wheel centre badges.




Did some scrubbing of the driver's seat.



CarPro interior cleaner vs. Chemical Guys leather cleaner


It's far from clean but it looks much better.




It took me ages to get the seat in place, then I realised the new seatbelt was stopping it from going in. So there's some modification to do there.

Tempted to drive it down to Kohl before I do much more, and get the carpet made.

This sounds very much like an excuse to go for a drive in it.................by the long way round too, no doubt ;D

Via the petrol station.
Better get the brake lights and indicators working first.

When I fitted the driver's seat I found out that the new seatbelt rubbed as the seat moved. I tried the various brackets that came with the kit but wasn't happy with it, so I popped the new one apart and was happy to find that it bolts together. Next job was to drill out the rivet holding the original one, trim the metal very slightly and attach the new head to the old bracket.

Painted the seatbelt thingy and fitted it back to the seat, it works :D
Then I decided to jack up the car and have a look around under the engine.
The bushes are all buggered...

Good news! I drained and re-filled the power steering fluid, and fired up the quattro. It seems to have cured that horrible buzzing noise from the pump. Yay!

I'm now trying to decide what to do next. Tempted to work on the brake lights and indicators then drive it down the road to get a carpet made.
I like the idea of getting the interior all done. It'd help with some of the wiring too, having somewhere to connect it to in the centre console.

Getting the interior up to scratch would certainly give you a feeling of getting somewhere.
Bushes and stuff  like that can be done anytime

Booked in for next Monday for shiny new carpets!
Let's hope it's not raining as I still have no passenger window.
