That's because we're not "admin" yet, just looked at the group management the admin section and there are only 2 members.

I also can't add more to add us, so I think it's up to Chris and Shell to sort us :D

Since a few people have asked about paint codes and colour availability i thought this info will be helpful..These are all standard VW colours but NOT all of them are MK2 specific.

Paint code can be found on the rear tailgate panel on a sticker. Sometimes it can be found on a bit of paper under the carpet from the original build or possibly in the owners manual.
Your local VW dealer may be able to get it off the reg from their system if you can't find it any other way.

In any case someone is going to have to google the codes one by one and get picture links to all of them together. Time consuming
