Hi Wagon, yeah I did the 3d printing myself I bought a cheap chinese 3d printer ages ago and have upgraded and customised it so much that it does a half decent print now ;D

As for the name i dropped the ultralite thing ages ago as it was far from it before let alone now!! - maybe I should just called it The Tank!! ;D :D ;D :D

I do like the look of the 18's though ::) ;D

Hey Wagon, cheers mate - I know what you mean about holdups, ive had to go back to the drawing board for the driveshafts not for the long side but for the short side!!

I have a question for you too, its about the DBW pedal - picture below
Image

Pedal on the left is the Golf MK4 standard one from the donor car and the unit on the right came from an audi tt pedal assembly, both units use a potentiometer and effectively do the same job of passing the pedal posisiton back to the ecu, my question is this - is it possible to swap these over as the tt unit can be fitted quite easily to the existing pedal assembly but the golf one requires a majot change.
Both units have a 6 wire connector but none of the colours match, A while ago I heard of someone discussing this and I think someone worked out the mapping of one unit to the other - do you or any of your vw contacts know about this ??? any help greatly appreciated!!

If no info is avaialble I will just have to work it out ;D
