Flickr does have a phone app. You're limited to 1000 pics before you have to pay.

Imgur is still free.

No pics here either
+1
Just google. Mine have never worked posting image links through google.

There is an online service that converts the url you get to the correct format for posting images as embedded object.

https://ctrlq.org/google/photos

Although I am still struggling with that one too.


It can only be run if you are logged into your google account.

changes the url from googleusercontent...etc to photos.google.com/share

Yes, your right, sorry. I even have the phone app 🤦‍♂️
However, itís the app that doesnít allow you to set the links so that they show directly in the forum thread.

then definitely don't use any google apps, I started a new role and found google docs and sheets a right royal PITA

I use imgur, it's simple to upload pics the right click 'copy image location" and paste into the brackets

Nice to see VW have carried on the tradition of using a manual brake pedal with a larger foot plate spot welded on for automatic / dsg.
Simply drill out spot welds, remove plate and manual foot pad clips in to place. Haven't had much time on this but hopefully start removing some of the required wiring from my donor tomorrow.

In the thick of it now, 2 switches on the gearbox and clutch pedal position switch to wire in.
Takes an age to do as neatly as possible, while I'm here ill probably fit the factory fog lights as well since it didnít come with any.

Coding so far has been easy, removed the auto trans from the Can installed list and re coded the engine ecu to manual.
Turn the key on and to start, the depress clutch message pops up. Push clutch in and presto engine start.
With the wiring in and seemingly everything works as it should I put the dash back in, I probably didn't really need to pull it but I'm glad I did as its given me way more room to work so in all I feel it was worth the extra hour or two to pull out.
Getting at the pedal and wiring would be a right ball ache with the dash in place.
Dash going back in and making sure all the scrwes go back where they came from, VW has really perfected assembly as they have greatly reduced the amount of fastners needed to bolt these things together.

Console back in with ofcourse the best part, a 6 speed gear stick! Added a new screen and sat nav hard drive so that will require messing around with to get working but now's the best time to install it.
