    The next part of the puzzle is of course the intercooler piping itself. Having spotted this tidy installation (albeit I'll be using the Mk4 Expansion Tank) I decided to try and find the part online


    The owner of this fine motor at VW Action was very helpful in telling me about his build, explaining the Pipe had come off a Passat. Bit of googling and I had narrowed it down to 8E0 145 762 A / 0145840S.

    Hopefully that's half the piping sorted.

    More progress shots today, Bed stripped ready for the application of tinted raptor. I'll be keeping the cover on the bed so it doesn't need to be perfect, but nice to see the original bed is so straight!

    The bloke spraying it has decided to do the bed the body colour, and then use clear raptor over the top. He seemed to think the tinted raptor wouldn't look anywhere near as good so we shall see what the outcome is! Meanwhile the coloured primer is being sanded down on the body work ready for the top coats

    Safe to say I'm absolutely smitten. Counting down the seconds until I can see it in the flesh

    Raptor bed liner tinted still to go on, hopefully hide some imperfections in the bed!

    I'll be using the same bed cover as before so bed doesn't need to be too special.
