    Post Pure White Timeline - Project Talltrack V2

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Greetings! As I have done with every other vehicle I have had, I am starting a timeline thread to help me keep track of progress. I am coming out of a 2017 Alltrack S manual that was totaled in August 2018 by a 26 year old girl running a red light.

    If there are posts that are worth noting, they will be indexed here. Too often posts get lost in the chit chat and hard to find.

    I realize that I have not been on here in a while so I will only do two updates regarding lighting. I recently wired up the leveling motors in the BEC Autoparts headlamps to an OEM European dimmer switch, which has a second roller specifically for moving the head lights up and down.



    I tried to make them as plug and play as possible but sadly there is no mating connector to the factory dimmer switch connector, so I simply removed the pins from that and plugged them into the European connector. Not that difficult thankfully. Now the lights can be moved up and down depending on the load in my hatch right from my dash.



    Next, I installed OEM European LED outer tail lamps since I already had the driver side inner for a rear fog. The hardest part was getting the coding correct which I am not happy with. Instead of the parking lights being used during the single sided parking lights, I coded the turn signals to fill this role.



    Other than that, I am just driving and enjoying the car. Just rolled over 10,000 miles this weekend and I will be changing the oil today. I do need alignment soon and before I do that, I will be upgrading the rear shocks to Atlas shocks. The Opti-Coat Ultra clear bra is here and I just need time to install it and coat that.
