    Scirocco mk 2 rear window demister

    Hi guys I run a 1998 Scirocco GT mk2 1.8. the rear window demister only works on two bars. Ive been looking at the repair kits which have electrical conducting paint to bridge gap. Does anyone have experience with them and are they any goid?

    cheers

    No, a waste of time and look awful unless you are a masking god and even then the colour doesn’t match. It would help if someone produced a pre cut masking tape like you used to see years ago, apply the tape and peel off the centre section.

Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
