Wow, just wow! Serious fabrication skills you have there.
It would almost be a shame to paint it!

Yeah I wish! Can’t take any credit for the metalwork I’m afraid. That’s all courtesy of Dave at Resto Shack. I wouldn’t have been able to do the work to that standard if I even got the time.

Ahhh, I've watched many a Restoshack rebuild, their work is second to none!
Do you know Dave Tapp and Chris Quick then?

I used to go to meets with them in the old days, good bunch of guys down there :thumbs:

I've just noticed, your location says Glasgow, but you're using Resto Shack.
Have you moved, or does their reputation really pull customers from that far away?!

Ha ha, no I haven't moved. I was just really impressed with the quality of their work so figured it would be worth the journey.

There was a couple of areas of corrosion on both front wings lower down. Not major really, and would’ve been repairable, but I managed to pick up a genuine G60 front wing from VW classic parts. They only had the offside available unfortunately, and since I was replacing the o/s it made sense to do the n/s as well. Since I already had two new genuine std wings at home, the decision was taken to create a G60 wing from one of those.
Here’s some more of Dave’s metalwork.

Thought the workshop / quality looked familiar, Resto Shack ftw :thumbs: Hell of a trip from Glasgow though? :shock:

Certainly in good hands there and looks like it'll be a minter when you're done with it.
