Picked up a fog light kit and gel plates
Just finished fitting it i will upload a pic in daylight
Wiring these was actually hassle free the loom was laid out well,
hardest parts was getting wire through bulkhead along bonnet release cable to go to the switch.

Productive weekend

LED's fitted in lights and fitted the fogs and a LED Bar in bumper behind bottom grill,
Its like driving in daylight now at night :D

Image

Decided to remove the old lacquer from the diamond cut area of wheels and wet sand them.
They had all chipped and water had got in causing white worm and some areas were chipped off completely,
Took about an hour to do each wheel but happy with the result, I finished them with white diamond polish, ill prob lacquer them in summer if decide to keep them.

Van is looking tidy Ray! Light bar is a great job this weather. Do u have it wired to come on with the full lights or on a separate switch?

Parts building up already, nice find. By the way, the black grab handles, sun visor parts and cab light, I got a cost from VW for 250 euro for them about 2 months ago, I seen you asking Giddy how much they were.

Cheers, I'm lucky stumbled across them on Facebook marketplace during the week for 80 euro so lucky as they were dry stored and are so clean! Cool I'll put them at the end of the list at that price! Seen a crowd on Facebook doing leather covered pillars might do something like that depending on seat choice.
