Thanks my friend, it's really appreciate. I love working on blue, it relax me!

I have some projects for 2018:
- Finish vinyl tint (all seats and doors insides)
- Paint the inside on my tail lights
- Install Audi steering wheel
- Install a glasspack (the car is to noisy on cruise control at 120 km/h)
- Black plastidip on dash panels for refreshing and remove scratches
- Maybe install a spoiler? I'd love to find a Caractere spoiler but am I dreaming?
- Maybe a new car radio with Android on it?

You're welcome my friend.
Yes, working on our Beetles is good therapy. It is more like a hobby than a job or task.

You have a nice 2018 project list. It should be a lot of fun. I am interested in seeing your seat tinting job complete.
Have fun.

New gas door and Audi steering wheel...

Any modifications to get the fuel door to fit? And did you hookup the airbag? I was gonna swap in a MK4 3 spoke wheel into my 08 but the wiring was different due to it being dual stage, did you have that issue?

No, the steering wheel fit bolt on and the connector of the airbag is the same... For the fuel door, it fit on a 2006-10 with a Dremel and a bit of imagination
