    Weekends mods and cruise control light

    Well had a few things to do to my car so got cracking on with them and im so happy with the cruise control light... one of the only ppl to do this to a mk4

    MASSIVE thanks to all them who helped in this difficult mod, took alot of time to do both the clocks and the wiring, the clocks had to be stripped down and alot of cutting to the board and alot of soldering of parts (needless to say i would never do it again as the work involved was very very hard and not to be attempted by anyone who doesnt want to risk damaging the clocks, lucky for me i was very lucky and got it working without any damage.)

    also while i fitted my curb lights i decided to flush the door pins off with the door card for extra security

    curb lights are a nice addition and were very easy to do, even got my neighbour to help and a few cans later and a pack of fags smoked we had finished lol

    Well done mate, all looks very good.

    Will there be a how-to for the cruise light?

    i doubt it mate as it was a nightmare of a job to do and i didnt get any pics of progress along the way...

    so think its going to stay a unique mod of mine

    Wiring doesn't scare me as I work on radar and comms systems.

    Even pin numbers would be good and rough wiring

    dials were a one off and wont ever be made again as the template was destroyed after my set was made, there was a previous version of them made but they were very poor and mine are spot on like the OEM dials

    Seriously well done for that, braver than I!
    "defo first in the uk"
    Really?? Tis a bold claim.

    No idea if the Mk4 which comes with Cruise as standard has the light, but if it does surely it will have been done by somebody.. its a 11 year old model now.

    That said, I havent seen one before myself..

    Out of interest, was it a case of solder / circuit board chopping or was Tech2 involved??
    I no longer have a Sig
