Been to see AdamGaltress today and sorted out the Gauges on the Passenger Side, but unfortunately the Exhaust Gauge has blown :( , but the other two are back working now :thumleft:

The Solar Battery Charger has now been Hardwired into the car, and will keep the Battery on charge all the time :thumleft:

Also have a New Decal on the Rear Window :thumright:

Many thanks Adam :kiss:

A sad day as the Rear Hideaway Plate jammed while checking to see if it still worked :( , anyway it just wasn't responding so in the end I got the Power Tool out with the Screwdriver attached and then removed the whole unit from the Boot Lid :!:

Had to cut the Wire and then poke it back into the Boot Lid which will need removing at some point. Disconnected the 12 Volt Socket connection which just leaves the Control Panel to be removed at a later date :(

So in future the Show Plates will be displayed at Trackdays and Car Shows :thumleft:

Got New Number Plates to go on the car at some point, when I can be bothered to drill the holes on the plates #-o

Need to buy 4 New Metal Screws for the plates, that are now covered in rust and corrosion :!:

That's me sorted out :twisted:
Volkswagen and Tesco want to make it easier for you to charge your electric car while you’re out. That’s why by the end of 2020 we will be rolling out EV charging bays across 400 Tesco stores. All of the chargers will be installed by Pod Point, the UK’s largest independent public charging network operator.

To make charging more accessible, the 7kW fast chargers will be available free of charge. But even if you decide to use the rapid 50kW charger you'll only pay a small fee in line with the going market rate.
