Hate to say this now, but maybe you should copy the Pug posts from here into it's own build in the non-mk2 build thread section.

Yes, makes sense as the MK2's definitely been put on (further) hold for a while... I was going to keep at them both, but realistically thats not going to happen!

I'll press pause on this thread and leave everything here as is, 205 will continue here - http://www.vwgolfmk2.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=170&t=49697

Was in the loft last night looking for something I thought might do the Pug and found this way at the back.

I'd noticed the box before, but thought it was empty and for a 'normal' deflector I've in the garage for the MK2... turns out it wasn't!

I must have bought this a very, very long time ago, possibly from a guy in Poland. He'd one of those one page websites you sometimes still find that look like they were done in the 80's for an arcade game.

It was like going back in time and finding a car factors that'd been closed for decades, but still stocked up. The NOS stuff he had was unbelievable.

Just had a Google and it's possible 'Airpress' have since morphed into the current day 'Climair'.

Judging from the sticker on the box and the cars the deflector was intended for I'd say this was possibly a mid to late 80's item. The idea behind the flaps seems sound enough, be interesting to see if they work in practice.

Definitely going onto the MK2.
