    picked up this 924 steering wheel which mimics the original Wolfsburg wheel and being that the 924 and 944 pretty much raided the parts bin for the mk1 golf will most likely be a direct fit for steering column, still waiting for better weather to get the caddy out, looks like another abysmal weekend here and seeing you guys posting progress is torture, half way through the welding i started filming a little of the progress, going to finish up the sill (when i get the chance) and make sure i get decent footage of that and will try mash something together in a video and post it up for anyone interested.

    Stuff like this video clip is so helpful to folk with my level of inexperience. Cheers. I wish I'd seen it a year ago.
    I look forward to the next instalment.

    I like your work bench. I have to stand at mine which is exhausting at least with yours you get to sit down .
    That’s some nice looking repairs.

    Ha Mitty, you would think id have made a bench by this point, working off the floor sucks!

    Thank you all for all the feedback, i left a huge amount out and just dropped in snippets as to not make it too boring to watch but tried to include each part of the process, moving forward if any of you have anything you want to see specifically or parts you wish left at normal speed, tools used, settings for machines, or parts i should leave out, if spoken commentary is helpful or the work alone is enough, any advice is welcomed, want to make it as enjoyable to watch as it is to produce.

    I'm no professional and completely self taught so please don't take the content as gospel.

    What did you film it with? How is it connected to your Noggin?

    thanks man, filmed it all from a gopro 3+ silver, for the FPV i had an old welding helmet that i stuck a mount to near the chin and as you can imagine trying to work with it was a pain so gonna have to re think that one, tried using a head strap but the field of view just looked odd.20161010_141612.jpg

    the end floats about a bit, I keep planning adding a screw to press against the tracking to lock it .
    The ability to swivel the end is brilliant though.
    I had a B&D one many years ago thats why i bought the evolution one .
    The cable is cheap and nasty as per every tool they make.
