Oil temp gauge in, interior coming together, and halfway through a bottle of BG 44K - things are good

For a while now I've been working on the interior.. a few aesthetic things (dyed the headliner black, thought about suede but too much or a risk of sagging) and specific gauges for monitoring. A few unique touches here and there. Finally got around to installing the shifter trim, here are some of the overall results

What did you use on your headliner smurf? I tried to do mine with either Dupicolor or simply spray, I can't recall. But I didn't like it, not dark enough, so I peeled it off and tried to do suede, which is NOT a 1 person job. So that came off. And I used just some general fabric with more give from the local craft store. But I would almost rather get a new headliner and start over and just use some GOOD dye...

I used duplicolor vinyl dye... at least three or four coats to make sure it was a nice solid black

Looking good smurf. Its the small details I love most.
Question, your shift boot, is it being held up by the sparco shift knob?
or is it just sitting closely under it (no collar on the shift knob)

The bottom of the shift knob hangs out and slightly over the collar of the shift boot... so they almost look like one contiguous piece. You know, sort of like Canada and the US :-D

Alright man thanks.
Also, your car is sick.
Also, also, why prosport? I've read they are terribly spotty. You must not be having any problems with them though?

I did a good amount of research on WHY people have spotty issues with Prosport, and the results showed that the problem was more with the sender and sender install location than the actual gauge itself. I took a lot of effort to install the senders in safe locations and have not had a single issue yet.

Not that I wouldn't mind DEFI gauges, but I'm on a married guy's budget

I just spent four or five hours extending the entire engine wiring harness to finally have all wiring out if the way for new sheet metal in the engine bay --- THAT much closer to finishing this shave/tuck job. Sheet metal 75% in... hopefully finish up over the weekend.

I have now had this build a little more than two years.. so in retrospect, I have put up some before/after photos:

Love the whole car man. Really jealous of the roof vent.

I can see the back of my head and my girlfriends face in one of those pics.

Now you need to get either an odyssey pc680 and put it under your seat or one of these new fangled lithium iron batteries that are super small.

The tuck is coming along quite nicely

Oh, that is a slightly older pic up there -- this is now my trunk

I don't plan on putting any new engine bay pics up until I finish the new paint job. Right now, the driver's side has no battery, fuse box, or reservoir

Seek and you shall find! Nice build, what made you decide to go back to a top mount?

Running 16 PSI on a TD04 really didn't call for any need of a FMIC, plus the car wasn't tuned for it. Plus, all the distance required for the air to travel through the FMIC pipes caused an excess turbo lag that I really didn't enjoy... I think when I switched to the V7 TMIC, the turbo lag decreased by about 300 RPM!

Productive day in the garage... sheet metal complete, smoothing complete. Next step is sanding and then in for primer/paint. Still deciding on the color but leaning towards a glossy stockish blue.

The wait is finally over! I completed the engine bay project this weekend... after many months relocating everything except for A/C, P/S, and ABS, because hey, this is still a daily driver! Put in new sheet metal and repainted everything. I still need to buff and wax the new paint, but happy to have completed this project a little bit at a time over the past many months

I still need to clean up a few more things, buff/wax the new paint, and fix a few tuck issues, but this definitely feels like a good milestone.
