Got the last few items today in the mail, the rear cup holder is really nice and is OEM.. I can see where its missing a minor part, that would allow the cup holder to spring open slowly to save cost it was removed and has no issues without it. For what little I will need it, its fine.
The pedal covers floored me, they are all OEM! but.. I can see these rated as scratch and dent maybe, the Dead pedal is a German Made, R Line part, has all the correct marking and the Part Number comes up good, the BRake pedal is the same, it just has very minor finish issues that are not visible from a distance greater then a foot or so, will get banged up anyway. ALso has a good German 1K0 Part Number, and the Throttle cover has a few scratches, and one minor fixable issue along the top edge it wasn't formed too cleanly, a bit of hammering and filing since its stainless and a quick buff on the brush and none the wiser that its an aftermarket assembled kit..
Hoping to have this beautiful weather hold out for a few day, and if the body allows, get a few things done, at least get the parts installed and wires roughed in. I am still waiting on some sound deadening material that I was turned on to for the doors, 80mil tar backed. got enough for 4 doors for $25 shipped. using my decibel meter I found the door lowers have about 5 db more sound leakage then the tops, so Ill focus on a bit inside the door to null vibrations, and and squares on the window regulator panels.
Barring this level 10 pain that even my strongest medications i have been given can't touch im hoping for some relief soon so I can play!
Also got some Lami-x Tinting film coming, Dark Black to get rid of the front side markers, yet keep me "US Legal" at night, with some more of that, I am making my own Boser/ eyebrows following the oem lines. Since the AMber rear turns are a total PITA to make work right, some red to cover them, in a test my patch of red blended in totally, and really changes the look. and finally some to tint the fogs European yellow!
Sadly with whats came up in the last week, this is it for a while, a few have asked for pics if the door cards and oem footwell install, I will be doing separate DIYs for these, to complement Egnimas write ups and DIYS but using OEM parts.. Tinting is on indefinite hold but first on the list in the coming months, as for tune and intake, that's for next years taxes.. Medical expenses, new foot wear, a new back brace, a deductible for my prescriptions I totally forgot about, and a new side arm came first, as well as paying off my credit card totally for a while..
