I'm gong to keep it the original silver. Re wheels I have some mint BBS ra's that I think I'll use, but perhaps paint the centers black as silver on silver is a bit to much. Hopefully this will also stop me wasting to much time looking at wheels online. Probably still look though ha ha.

Have been storing half the interior today to keep it out of Verts way. Have to say that he has done an amazing job in cleanly removing everything. 40 year old clips all intact and some very thin trim in near perfect condition. Amazing.

Once the project is done I'll be interested to hear what your thoughts are in regards to handling compared to your Mk1 GTI.

These things are damn awesome - I've become a serious fan since seeing them in the flesh. The low roofline, the raked screens - they just just ooze coolness. Does anyone have the actual dimensions versus a Mk1 Golf?

I caught up with John for lunch the other day and was able to see the Mk1's in the flesh. They look to be much lower than the Golf, which means heavy bits like glass are much closer to the ground, so I imagine the (urban myth so to speak) difference in handling is mainly around the difference in weight distribution.

Is Maddie and the Rocco going to have similar engines?

Roccos are pretty cool.
 Lots of the plastic clips and gear sticks and door handles and blah blah are all just VW stock. Makes sence all companys do that.
 Don't ferraris have Fiat indicator stalks etc.
 Busy busy Vert ;)
 
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?

There's a hole where everything was!  ;D
My sandblaster mate had a look today, its going to be fully blasted and 2 pack epoxy primed for the best result.
Will get the car to him this thursday as he wants to do it on a sunny day, blast and prime it right away.
Will drop the front susp also to make things easier for him plus it makes for a better finished product.
