The holes for the gti badge were welded up by one of the 12 previous owners. So stick on will suffice. Yes I've not actually been to any VW specific car shows ever so I'll be filling my diary next year. After being inspired by many of the builds on this and other forums it'll be brilliant to finally but the faces to the names. Cheers dude.

And she's home, dropped off at 21.30 last night. Helped the guys fit the window regs and sunroof, missing a few bits from the sunroof but I can finally work on it now. Its only now shes back I'm reminded how much their is to do and how little time I've really got! :rotate:

Thanks again guys, I'm only realising now how much there is still to do. The work is something I will enjoy now however what is causing an issue is how disorganised ive been.

Parts for this car have been scattered across 3 houses and 2 bodyshops in the three years its been off the road. So before I fit a single part I'm going to organise everything into their respective categories.

Oh I have to say the paint job is good but it is truely epic in the sunlight. I just sat on the wall admiring it for a good 10 mins this afternoon, just thinking 'Finally!'

Since the cars return I've done next to nothing, swapped over the bonnet seal and a few other bits but thats all. Time being the primary factor as per usual.

I have also been building a new shed in the back yard as I have gathered a multitude of different tools and parts since starting this build there is no room for anything anymore plus my missus keeps sh!t machines (rabbits.. Not mk1 allegros) too so there is a lot of stuff knocking around.

Image

I've just spent a couple of hundred quid on the last remaining parts that i need to properly put everything together on this car though. My missus is buying me 2.25'' trackslag exhaust system for my birthday :-) and that will be the last piece of the puzzle.

I'll start updating this regularly every sunday unless something significant happens like the first engine start.

Oh yes I filmed a very basic and poor (why i never shared it at the time!) walk around video of my car when it was in the storage unit in the depths of winter at around 23:30 at night. I do look back on them times of working on the car there with rose tinted glasses I must say. But its good to see a video format from what it looked like then to how it does now.
