I think the one I’ve linked is open all the way down one site, which is probably best due to connectors but you can get it ‘closed’ as well. Would obviously mean feeding the whole loom through it though

took the dashboard out of the loft and prepped it to go bakc into crusty.
unfortunately the dash is quite cracked and the middle vent buckled as they do when they get damp and the vinyl shrinks.
so i cut the moulded fibre board on the rear and reinforced it with steel inserts so the demist will work properly and not leak like a sieve.
screwfix do bags of 100 self tappers for a couple of quid and found them perfect for securing the plates to the dash and refitting the dash in place.
rerouted all the electrics back to there relevant holes in the dash for the switches.
somehow ive picked up 2 drivers side headlights so need a passenger one, anyone who has one would you be willing to swap for a good nick drivers? or part with for cash?
also need to find my fog light and hazard switch.

Hey buddy,

I’ve got a scala which I’m breaking at the moment due to rust and it not being worth repairing.

Send me over a list of stuff you need and I’ll check to see if it’s for it. The light is definitely there.

so i had the paperwork back from DVLA and they want either a receipt for crusty doner engine or an engineers report or a letter from VW verifying the engine number and cc.
tried Vw and they were useless although i did manage to get a VIN for the doner which could help in the future getting parts.
so have to send a receipt for the engine and hope that works instead.
good news is the log book says its officially orange now!!

fitted the door cards but the plastic tops on both door cards are missing?? this means the top of the door card isn't hooked onto the door properly.
if anyone has that plastic i would much appreciate it.
also found the three screws that hold the stalks on the column so fitted them quick before they go awol again :-D

then filled the hole where the rear wiper used to go through the glass with none other than a wing mirror adjuster nob which happens to fit the grommet perfectly!
so gonna crack on with the rest of the internals and really need to fit the rad and fan so i can fill the cooling system and check for leaks.
