Kev's WK2 Buildup - Australia - Photo Heavy!
 
Hi guys,
I was inspired from a guy on a different forum to create my own thread for the mods I've done from the beginning. I really enjoyed reading his and hopefully you'll do the same with mine!

I've been working on setting the car up for Camping, and also a trip to Cape York (Australia) in June tis year!

Standard - The day we picked it up:

Hi Troy,

At this stage the straps are through the spare wheel. I do want to revisit this in the near future to see what else is possible - I do have a few ideas from when I stripped the car down but I just don't seem to have the time!

I want to install the garage remote same as you as it looks great!! I've seen a couple of single line wiring diagrams and it looks pretty simple, but where did you source the button? Is it lit? Looks great and will be my next mod so any help is appreciated. Cheers.
