Good company!! Well done. Enjoy the car before winter falls. For the shoelace: use some VAG-gasket-cream: remains creamy but seals small irregularities. Partnumber : D 454 300 A2. (or next time: use silicone, but this is more work to remove)

There were definitely ups and downs, and a lot of learning during the past 3 years. Fortunately I didn't count the hours but took a lot more effort than initially expected.

Thanks everybody for encouragement and tips they helped a lot.

Winter is unfortunately pretty much here again, but at least it's time for some minor updates :D (hint: brake system upgrade, in a new thread)

I've used Hylomar non setting compound on the shoelaces, not sure yet why one side is weeping.

If there was any oil on the mating surface the Hylomar won’t have sealed.

I've cleaned and degreased everything, at least as I remember. I think the problem is that I've run out of the factory one, and used a different one. It was also viton, but maybe 0.1mm smaller in diameter. Looked up my notes, everything is there, except this, so not sure.
