12 years later, I’m still at it!

Yes, my beloved is 12 years old now! But I’m still working at it to make it better, this year again. Although some of you probably think I’m destroying an already perfect car (which is true) my goal is to make it mine, a reflection of my taste and… of the $ I’m ready to throw at it 🙂

My point: It’s mine and everything I do to it is well thought and will always be a work in progress. I don’t mind opinions, so feel free to give yours below this article.

So 2017 brings a lot of fun! 1. The completion of my 1 year Land Rover Defender rebuild which is due in June (haven’t blogged on it yet, but just think LS3 and much more…) and 2. More stuff on the TT. By stuff i mean a cluster repair, dial fascia replacement, double din radio install, full speaker replacement and addition of a subwoofer.

So here are a few pics of where I’m at! Enjoy.

Cluster (a complete cluster is about $1000 us. The LCD screen goes from $30 to $99. I ordered both to be able to compare them.)

Fascia (simple black to white replacement, from Lockwood)

Sound system (the Bose original equipment is not bad at all. But if, like me, you appreciate ‘very’ good sound quality in your car, it’s just not enough, and I’m not talking boom boxes)

More to follow in the next month.

I started this blog just recently because I have so much fun modifying my MK1 TT... that I need to let the world know! And it's also a good reference when looking back at my mods. Ciao for now! Andre

    Do you still have your TT? I just bought a double din fascia for my MK1 Roadster and have all the bits ready to go (pioneer head unit with carplay, JL audio amp, new door speakers, rear speakers, subwoofer). How do you like your new sound system?
