My Fjord Blue Build...

Post by Devon-Sam » Mon Mar 12, 2012 6:31 pm

Hi guys i'm Sam from Plymouth,

i posted a hello in here a couple of weeks ago, and it's been bloody hectic since!

The turbo on the passat (1.8t) finally died a spectacular death on my partner's parents drive covering the whole street from pavement to roofline in 2 litres on burnt oil being chucked through the exhaust!

So a brand new unit was ordered and the old one taken out while i was waiting.. the wait got the better of me and with 2 weeks off work and the car sitting there anyway i decided to do a few things to the 'ssat...

Full service - existing spark plugs were disgusting and the fuel filter looked as if it hadn't been changed in over 5 years!

New oil feed line for the new turbo ,

Drilled my air box :roll:

Badegless grill on the front, de-badged the rear an vinyl wrapped the rear badge in black,

headlight resto, new side repeaters and HID install , LED sidelights, Plasti dipped all of my interior trim black,

Went to the scrappy and claimed a few lost parts like my jacking covers...

New key :)

New Crankshaft pos. Sensor

and LED rear number plate bulbs....

Oh and the Turbo install!

Next on the list...


New Wheels


and a few other little bits.... :-bd
