hey corey-

are you still running the blue pool hose intake mod?

i just found that write-up of yours on the old forums, and i'm seriously contemplating it.

I'm wondering how it's held up for more than a year (any problems with the pool hose, etc.)

THANKS! :wave3:

Turbo S door panel swap

So one of my wants is to have an all black interior, like the Vortex Blue New Beetles. This is the next best thing. I found a set of Turbo S door panels for sale on eBay. These were supposed to be on for our SVFest 2005 but I had a little trouble with the shipper. They finally arrived and I was able to do the install today. There was a few missing attachment items as well as the black grab handle covers (need to order) but everything is a direct fit so just a simple swap.

Overall I am very happy. The sills were a bit scuffed and black does show a hell of alot more than the gray! So I may be complete on my all black..

and no I'm not trying to make a Turbo S..

The front doors are easy compared to the rear panels. 3 Torx on the bottom and 2 phillips behind the grab handle cover.



Driver side closed:

Passenger, both:


Switch swap:

Along with the panels, I ordered a few other Turbo S parts.

Dead pedal:

Door locks:


and last my chrome shift plate cover. I'm not a fan of 3M stuff but I've always loved the chrome plate in Passats etc.
