Went for a zap with Vert today in this car. He is right in that any more power this the mk2 chassis would be unable to handle as its on the edge of being crushed every time the loud pedal is pressed.  A normal mk2 is tame by comparison. Easy to see why he likes it so much.

Although my interior is sort of finished I'd ideally like better door and 1/4 cards so while in Wellington earlier this year I called in and saw Lane for a few parts I needed.
As usual he had everything I was after and had his last set of Golf 3 door panels and 1/4 cards , now or never so bought those off him.
They are non GTI plain jane ones which are actually better because the boards are plastic, not that compressed cardboard crap mine are.
Plan is to use the same green plaid for the inserts, leather on top and the rest plain black material with some red accent stitching.
The plastic dividing strips on my cards are all cracked and broken, one reason I wanted to do new ones. Did a lot of research on something I could use as a break between the different materials and came up with Aluminium trim.
Had to cut, bend, shape it in to trims to fit each panel pretty accurately and then devise a way to attach it.
Bought a hide of leather for the job so I'm well and truly committed now.

Been a while since an update but fact is I'd run out of material! Caught up to where the car is at now.
I have been chipping away at the new interior panels as well as finding a bunch more rare NOS parts such as new Hella front bumper fogs, Hella smoked tails
and some unobtanium door glass seals (totally stoked to find those actually)
They are all still at my parents place in Germany but will end up here once I actually need them.
As I said I wanted to incorporate a red stitch in the door cards and after trying a bunch of things that didn't work I've settled on this.
The original plan was to sew all the pieces together and glue down but it became evident very quickly that was going to be beyond my capability so I've settled on doing it in 3 pieces glued down separately.
Top will be black leather, this will then be separated by the aluminium strips.

More progress, and progress I'm actually happy with.
Finished one of the rear cards apart from painting the aluminium trims, its a pity I have to paint them but the anodizing is damaged from having to shape, file and sand the trims to fit the profile of the card.
Its been a very challenging process and still have 3 more to do, these are going to take some time.
On the lower part I did a single red top stitch and glued this down, the lower section is also foam backed giving it a softer feel.
The top part I went with black leather to add a bit of class (if that's possible with a Mk2 Golf)
Then test fitted both trims to see how it ties it all together, certainly a vast improvement over the last set and a lot more like what I was thinking from the beginning.

Continuing with the interior panels and next up are the door cards, as I suspected these are much harder to do and also I cannot make any mistakes as the green plaid and black material has all but run out.
There's only just enough to finish what I need to do so if I screw up measuring something I'm well and truly stuck.
The black cloth is old stock my upholsterer had and matches my seats perfectly, measure 5x and cut once is the order of the day.
Lots of issues with the sewing machine so had to unpick things a few times but persistence prevailed again, one more left to make.

Last door card, it's been fun and I've really enjoyed it but its time to knock this on the head and be done with them.
Made a couple of simple templates to ensure at least some symmetry left to right, not perfect but close enough.
The last thing to do is all the alloy trim, not sure yet if I'll paint them silver or take all the anodising off and do a brushed finish then clear coat them.
Think I'll do a couple test pieces and see what comes out best, getting the anodising off is probably going to be the most hassle.
