beautiful - I prefer the stock PAS wheel, but both look epic.

The new pump and accumulator etc.. must have cost you a few bob; cheapest I could find a new accumulator was £160, but luckily mine was salvageable!

BIT of an update, the foams on the dash vents have come unstuck, no big job, but will do on a dry day, passenger side window motor seems to have seized, could be due to the last 2months of rain.. so again when a dry day comes it will be off with cards and see if can refurbish or change the mechanism . The battery seems to not like the cold either, its 2 yrs old and struggling to hold charge for more than 7days if not driven. So i invested in small booster from china/Amazon YABER Car Jump Starter, does start the car from dead, 2 times from a single charge....so my plan is to keep 1 in the car and trickle charge it via cig lighter when driving.

Accumulator was half that price rickygolf its a ford part does exactly same as the vw one.

seems prices have gone up a bit since i bought mine.. but since lasted 30yrs its not too bad.

Yes I wasnt sure at first but after getting a set and refurbing I'm happy with way they look on car. The bbs rm 012 I just sold was ok, I pu on in the summer but to be honest I think the cash better spent on another project.

Still driving around in mk2, still it's got its little issues. Runs ok,starts badly almost like flat battery, this issue has been ongoing since I bought it,changed battery 2 times,starter and alternator, cleaned and refreshed earths. Will start but sometimes gets heart jumping when sat in petrol station thinking do I have to push to 1 side..
