    Keeping this thing alive. Have been trying to download my albums from Photobucket to upload to Flickr, but Photobucket is being an ass and not allowing me to download them.

    Ordered 7yds of Onyx Black Suede material to begin wrapping my headliner, sunroof slider, possible rear deck and pillars. Got to work this morning on cleaning the headliner.











    Got the headliner cleaned up, blown off with the air compressor and made a slight modification so the MK4 sunroof switch would fit.

    Material arrived this morning, but it was so humid out, I decided not to wrap anything today, in fear of the glue not drying right. I did split the rear c-pillars into 2 pieces in hopes of wrapping them. The b-pillars will get painted as they look like a pain in the ass and I have only seen one set wrapped, but I really didnt like how it was done. Will end up wrapping everything next week while Im off work.

    Made some progress today. Got the headliner and the bigger pieces of the rear c pillars wrapped. Started on the L shaped pieces of the c pillars and gave up for a bit until I decide on an easier way to wrap them without puckering up. Have a few small wrinkles in the headliner that Im okay with. Still need to remove the sunroof and A pillars.

    Got a lot more done today. Removed the sunroof to wrap the slider. The handle on the slider broke on me as I was trying to remove it. Got the rear deck out, removed the 3rd brake light, speaker grilles and rear seatbelts, which I didnt re install any of those items because it looks so much cleaner and I never have more than 1 other person with me. I got the rear deck, sunroof, headliner, S4 sunvisors and grab handles all installed. Now for pics!

    These 2 corners at the sunroof area arent perfect, may color it in with a sharpie.





    Not a perfect fitment of the MK4 R32 dome light/sunroof switch, but barely noticeable if youre looking straight up. I need to either paint the visor clips black, or find some from an S4.





    Random outside shot from the front showing the removed 3rd brake light.

    Decided to order a flocking kit to do my b and small portion of the c pillars that I couldnt get wrapped. Hopefully have that done next week. Im still on the hunt for a driver side a pillar, as the one I received from ebay ended up being a facelift one but their description was pre facelift.

    Took a little drive this morning and picked up a mint driver side A pillar and a broken C pillar, which I used to repair mine since it was in better shape. I also trimmed off the areas where the 2 pieces of the C pillar were plastic welded together for a cleaner look. Should have them flocked and installed by next weekend. I didnt bother trying to get the plastic repair real smooth since the flocking will hide it.

    Received the flocking kit in the mail on Wednesday, got to work earlier today to finish wrapping my A pillars and then flocked my B and smaller parts of the C pillars, and dual gauge pod. This stuff makes a mess but is easily cleaned up and you can reuse the material that doesnt stick. You really cant use too much on the pieces youre working on as only so much can stick to the glue.

    Dusted off all of the excess flocking fiber a bit ago and painted the seat belt adjusters. Got a side comparison of the suede next to the flocking.
