Just a few bits to finish off, Momo Prototipo heritage steering wheel chosen for it's closeness to the early mk1 Rocco wheels, filled in some cracks and dyed the dash black, a bit shiny to start with but it has toned down to a duller sheen now, cooling system was done now and installed a slightly higher pressure radiator cap trying to avoid any loos of coolant too prematurely

Finished the fuel lines in braided ptfe line with 6an black fittings, not into the whole red and blue fittings look for a road car then took the car back to the engine tuners to get the final wiring for the ecu installed and get it fired up, this was around 4 or 5 days work, fired nicely, didn't boil up, had some tuning of the rad fan to do via the laptop and found we needed a wider band coolant temp sensor so ended up sourcing and oil temp one with a wider range, seems better now, also installed a lower temp opening thermostat which seems to keep things in check too, Cpl of pics of finished item

The Rocco has been on the road now for around 4 months, ran the engine in, changed out the oil and had it back to the tuners for a rolling road session, Dyno day came along and I was paranoid it was gonna go bang or something but all was good, 4 hr mapping session revving the nuts off it at points and managed to squeeze 201hp out of it on one of the hottest days of the summer, may give a little more on colder days, all I know is it feels rapid, taken the car to a few shows and it's been well received winning some trophies which is great, it's been a journey for sure but they always are, since doing the Golf then this Rocco, I am ready to tackle the mk1 Caddy we have, promised to do house up first tho :-(
Caddy will be R32 if I get my way :thankyou:

Amazing standard of work. If mine looks half as good when finished I'll be happy.
