Tiny update [Mr. Green]

I decided that because I don't smoke, I'd get a cigarette lighter dust cap to keep the new socket clean and free of crap. Introducing a genuine Audi cigarette lighter blank:

Time for a slight update. My Stack oil temp gauge stopped working. I found if I wiggled the plug at the sender, it started working again.

So, rear wheel off, car up on axle stands, I disconnected the plug and scraped the contact points clean and followed up with contact cleaner. All nice and shiny contacts and a clean plug. I left it disconnected to dry out.

Once reconnected and car back together, I took it out for a test run. Thought all was good, oil temp rising on the gauge....

...but then it stopped at 65 degrees and wouldn't go higher than that on an hours drive! Then it dropped to 59 degrees while still on the same drive.

I'm putting it down to a dodgy sender unit.

So with the oil temp out of action, I thought I don't really look at the other 2 gauges, and think the cabin would look better without them.

So, dash panels off, I disconnected the gauges and refitted the stock Toyota blank plate under the stereo.

For now the wiring for the gauges is just insulated and tie wrapped up behind the dash. I'll remove it at some point in the future and remove the oil filter sandwich plate when I next change the oil.

Interior looking much cleaner:



I love oem! [Very Happy]

And a quick pic from my test run out. Probably going to be hibernation time for the car soon, as the weather gets worse towards winter.



I'm on the look out for a factory rev 2+ front lip too, and a pair of front under trays as my next project.

Hi Craig,

Hope your keeping well?

It is getting to that time for winter hibernation.

Cheers

James.

Hey James,

Keeping well thanks mate! It appears I couldn't just shove all the wiring behind the dash, so am now attempting to locate the problem with the oil temp gauge.

Dash panels back off...... [Laughing]

Trying to get the car out when I can, get as much use out of it before putting it away over winter [thumleft]

I may have also sourced a stock front lip, TBC.

that's quite the transformation you've done going from a breakers parts car to what you've got now [thumleft]

Cheers buddy! [thumleft]

VX220 eh, nice, is it a turbo? [Cool]

My car was pictured (along with everyone elses!) on entry to JAE 2017. Nice to see a rolling shot of me driving! This has to be my favourite pic of the car so far, and I feel, in it's best guise. Stock bodywork with the deeper Aeroware front PU lip.
