New Dash, New Pipe and the glass is in..

Recommended Posts

After reading some of the Uro seal horror stories posted on here. I was nervous about the install. I had bought the seals some time before discovering 02faq.

Anyhow I went ahead with the doors and rear glass.. At first I thought I'd done something wrong as both were pretty simple and there weren't any issues with fit. Okay the doors require a heftier shove to close and I still need to adjust the glass but really nothing to moan about.

Before installing the windshield I fitted my re-trimmed two piece dash. Had it smoothed out and recovered in black natural leather. I won't be using the heater controls in Thailand so had those blanked out along with the window demist vents.

Windshield popped in and the seal fitted nicely along the top edge of the dash.

Fitted the lock-strips without the proper tool. Can only assume the high temps here make the rubber more pliable.

Hoping to finish of the sound installation before fitting an Only02 carpet set.

Last but not least I had a local muffler shop build me a 2.5inch stainless single box system to fit my Fritzsbits stainless headers.

Getting closer to finishing with every week that passes..

Can't wait to get a decent set of wheels and the turbo flares fitted.

good to see someone else speak nicely of the uro seals...i've installed them in three o2's and have never had the horror issues most claim to have experienced...they installed like you stated, easily, as they should and fit properly...

uro seals are a great bang for the buck

Thanks for all the positive comments and encouragement guys.

The flares and airdam are all ready to fit CD but really want to wait till I have the correct offset wheels and all the other work is complete. Really keen to get them on but know it's better to wait.

I'm aware the windshield seals' profile is a little higher than stock. But I'm not using the chrome lock strip and the wiper arms I have appear to clear. Not sure if they are original or something a previous owner found locally.

here's a few more pics of the interior, the exhaust and my other German future classic DD.
