cheers steve,
it dont look too bad but trust me there still a lot i dont know about paint and its been a steep learning curve!
the painting is actually the easy part its all the tedious prep that makes the paint work..... or not.

so ive fitted the south african clutch mech courtesy of mark watson
here are a few pictures

Image

ive since drilled the origenal clutch hole round using a cone drill so the gromits in now.

Image

only problem i found was the pedal would only travel 2-3 inches before the lever hit the bulkhead so i ended up extending the linkage so the swivel bit didnt hit the bulkhead, not sure if everyone will have this problem?

Image

problem solved

I swear I recognise that grey/blue one from around the stereo area. Illumination?

Blue/grey is definitely illumination.

It goes to the circular bunch plug on the engine loom and the other end went to the fuse box

right so not a lot has been happening in the last year, a mix of no enthusiam and other project issues meant this went on the back burner for a bit but hopefully get it going again.
so far ive managed to get the windscreen in (without breaking it!) which to my surprise went easier than expected.

next i thought it best i tackle the wiring as its something ive been putting off for far too long!
ive been following this thread https://vwgolfmk1.org.uk/forum/index.ph ... &kfs80=360
which has proved fantastic for this conversion plus many links to info you will not find anywhere else!
but i do require your help guys as theres some DX wiring i dont know what it does and cant chop it out till im certain so if any of you can tell me what any of the plugs and wires in the pics below are i would be gratefull.

in this image some of the plugs are missing but if you can tell me what the wires and plugs coming out of the grey sleeving are that would be great

Bottom picture - I believe is the connections for the AAV (auxiliary air valve) ISV (Idle stability valve) and 5th Injector, there should be 3 plugs?

Image

2nd picture - I think the green plug is for the WUR should have a red/white wire and a brown wire. Brown plug is for the Thermo time switch should have a green/white wire and a red/black wire, I think the other wires with the spade connectors are for the water temp and oil temp sensors but I can't see the colour of the wires.

1st picture - Not sure, can't see where it comes from or the colour of the wire?

cheers mark i will try cleaning up the wires and see what they are.
to be fair i only need the oil pressure wires and the water temp wires. the rest need to go.

If you let me know the colours I should be able to tell you what they are as when I changed over my engine I labelled every wire and took pictures lots of where it all went.

Agree with Mark. Brown plug is thermoswitch, green is wur and spade is coolant temp. All 2nd pic. Not sure about first pic either as there is not anything I can think of around there with that plug. Last pic is the aav, cold start as mentioned.
