Basically a mixture of trying to reuse the long flat tab things, small self tap screws and the few actual existing screws. It seems pretty strong and the panel is against the door card anyway so I'm not too worried that it's going anywhere.

Panels clips must be your worst nightmare... you must have a pretty good interior removal tool setup?

Well, our logging was a little problematic yesterday and couldn't fully extrapolate the data. Also there was no room anywhere to get solid pulls in.

But the fluidampr feels nice! Butt Dyno tells me just a little more power was gained mid-top

In summary, here is what occured:

Boost gauge & vent
Redlinegoods alacantara shift boot, e-brake handle, armrest w/ red stitching
Jetta GLI E-brake boot retrofit
Mojo mats
Black leather rear seat, restitched with red thread
Braum racing front seats & brackets
Sound deadening
LED lighting
Alacantara wrapped lower dash & door panel inserts
carbon fiber dash trim
MK7-Replica ambient elumi-wire trim
Wrapped gear surround trim
BFI DSG knobupgrade
'Manual' shift boot swap
Wrapped steering wheel
APR steering wheel badge
Anodized red shift paddles & ignition key insert
Red SKODA trunk nets
Porsche grab handle straps where applicable
Eanon head unit
Some carbon fiber fabric trim pieces

Thanks! For anyone interested, I made a post about my washing / detailing techniques on mk7golf last year. May update and make a post on here as well.
