Just tested your ecu and it works fine on mine, so the interior can be put back together and the loom taped up, probably didnt get dash lights cos the inlet wasnt connected

air con pump, starter motor, alternator, pas pump all painted up silver today. nissens aluminium rad fitter, fans fitted, engine loom brackets fitted, lifting eye fitted.

waiting for the orange paint now to spray the inlet manifold and cam covers so can put some fluids in and start the engine up to check things run.

yeh car not running now sensor problem hopefully. but front end is all back on including headlights etc except bumper, all engine bits and pieces connected up. clutch cable on.

so jujst fluids and exhaust to do once the starting problem is resolved should be driving next weke hopefully sumtime.

got a gti6 cat today and a new drivers window regulator so can fix that as well and have both windows working yay.
