    Wrapping Door Cards

    Well I sprayed the door card and the material and stated in the deepest part and worked out wards once it was fully down and happy I cut the extra that over lapped and glued it on the bag . Now get one of those vacuum storage bags and put the whole door card inside and then suck the air out which will removed any air pockets and hopefully press the material fully into the shape of the door card

    Wrapping Door Cards

    Hi not been on the forum for months , ! Got fed up of abuse towards my **** posts I've used leatherette from dun helm mills. Probably the same as you are using I wouldn't use the same peace again as any lumps show up and look dirty one of mine is covered in them ! Bleghhhh once you have the material fully glued and pulled over the edges the best thing I thought of doing whilst it sets is using a vacuum bag and putting the door card inside and sucking the air out
  9. Best to buy 100% clean stuff from Costco and as said its tax free up to 2000 -2500 litres . It generally works better in older cars rather than newer ones with more complicated diesel injection systems . Wouldn't even bother with used vegetable oil as its dirty as even if it has been filtered the temperature has altered it . My dad used to use a high % of vegetable oil to diesel throughout the year with no problem . As for the potential issues with ignition is just generally down to cetane numbers and the requirement for the fuel to auto ignite under pressure

    As far as I know I've only ever seen a non Gti rear quarter and the sills will be bonded on so not like you can remove without breaking , vw is probably only option
