The exhaust line with welding marks, weathering, brackets and heath shields is impressive.

Thanks too much mate, i'll try to do my best to reach the best realism match.

Yesterday I started the work on the interior.
In the previuos project i had also flocked with felt the floor. The kit was born only in plastic without carpet

My new project is to elimanate the rear seat and add a roll cage.....my fault is having partecipate in over 10 edition of Woerthersee :rotfl:

I modified the trunk floor and seat to have a complete open trunk.

My friend produced a new machined alu air tank for airride system

I also take the rear Delta HF 1/8 struts bar (will be modify) to use as fixing for next 4 point seat belts.

I also check the measure for roll cage, i found a rc 1/10 roll cage to modify (erase the light) but that have quite good measure.

While I wait felt and rollcage, i started the work on door cards.

First job is to correct an hachette error. The kit has diveided door (metal) from inside structur (in gray plastic). Hachette thinked that was part oof door card......on 1:1 golf is part of the door all metal and one-piece. So i "welded" the 2 part with ciano and bicarbonate.

I also stated the work on door cards: i lowewered on front and rear cards the armrest to permit the fitting of a new flat styrene panel.
I tryed to imitate the carbon door cards of Carbontech

I meake 4 hole.

2 for inside cable to open door
1 to apply the belt to pull the door
1 for glass cranck.

The metal wire and yellow belt is only to show...not necessary the final combo material/color


FInally i worked the panel, painted in black and final carbon decal. I'll decide if mantein black pillars or coat also with felt.

A first primer coat to doors to watch some details that need to rework.

While i'm waiting the roll cage (to be modify) i continued the work on other parts

I bought over one years ago steering and seat as spare parts from Delta HF integrale 1/8

I'll use Delta steering for GTi and also a couple of Delta navigator seats (steering and seat will be reworked and modified)

Finally I also took a couple of seat belts (Delta) to made a new 4 point seat belts

Find recaro old school is very hard (i think impossible).

I modify these that are quite good for my idea.

I flocked all floor and central tunnel to cover the bad plastic kit

I add some little detail to gearknob, handbrake (like 20years edition) and a final detail to seat belts clips (that will be removed for 4 points belts)

I continued with carbon decal work. I worked the central consolle, i selfmade the template for carbon and finally i coated with decal and 3 final clear coat.

Dashboard 1/2

I worked on dashboard

All the dash vents are blanked. I drilled out them to give a little more deep and better view.

I self made a panel with styrene to add ob central vent. This panel will be the support for arride manometers.

I threaded the steering column to change the screw with a hex bolt

I remade the shape of the switch behind steering

I repainted the box under the dash and i added selfmade carpets doing with a glasses cloth.

With 0,3 mm alu foil I remade the pedals, i added the skid proof only to throttle and brake pedal.

Dashboard 2/2

The column steering cover had a hole without nothing. I add a red rivet to simulate the starting switch.

With shrink i self made the cover for steering hub.

I used a Delta steering wheel, i sprayed black to try recreating a flocked view on crown.
I painted in alu the spokes and added Momo decals and the yellow centering stripe.

I finished the work on extra manometers for arride.
