And a clear run at it was had, so here's the suspension going on!

Huge thanks to Adam for getting it sorted for me, I'm so happy! I did help a wee bit but I probably just got in the way and slowed things down to be honest :love:

Yesterday the car went back up on the ramp due to both front bags leaking, turns out the fittings hadn't been tightened  :laugh:

It's my birthday today so very little progress since yesterday. I messed about a bit while Adam knocked up a sub box for me! Only thing I managed to get done was run some phono cables...

Managed to fit the wood needed on the roof of his e39

Haha fair! We had only put it there though to give us room to put the trolley with the wood on it without being too close to somebody elses car!  :P

Now that all the audio/airlift cables have been run it was time to put the interior trim back together!

Rear bench back in.

Glovebox/trim put back in

The headliner has been out since 2017 when the leak was found! That's it FINALLY back in place

My Mum bought me a birthday present!

I bought myself a birthday present, too! Though it's a LOT bigger than it looked in photos..

All wired up ready for the speakers to go in! They didn't fit without some plastic mounts that Adam ordered up for me.

The new wood put to good use - Finished look of the boot build knocked up!

However.... I was made redundant this week so there'll be likely no updates with the car until I know what's happening financially. I'll struggle to keep my Mini on the road at this rate never mind mess about with the Golf, so for now it can sit pretty. At least it's used to sitting for long lengths of time  :sad1:
