Store it! You will regret selling!

Only if Ray has taken his Viagra

haha, i think your cars coming along great, i dont bother with my progress thread as noone bothers to comment on threads unless they have a million views + comments!

I will as quick as I can! Got some 20mm spacers coming for the rear, should sit pretty nicely.

Also fitted a K&N airbox filter today, seems to have improved the responsiveness a little...

Here's a pic from when me and the mrs went for a little road trip to a national trust location in Kent:

Random purchase!

Mk2 Golf Driver 1.6, 82,000 miles, bargain at just over £300!

All looks in pretty good condition apart from the rear quarter window and battery are out.

It's got no MOT, tax or insurance. Never been in this situation before so what do I go about getting first?

Update time, KW V1 Inox coilovers are on, not too low at the moment, just testing the waters.

Strange but the rear adjusters are not even all the way down but it's already quite low. Also got 20mm spacers on the rear.

So jealous of your gti, so far everything you've done is perfection :)

Thanks for the lovely comment mate, really appreciate it.

Seems that way, maybe there are not enough members on the forum...

A wheel update (not going on the Lupo), really slow progress with these unfortunately.

Got some custom 1" dishes made up. Still need to paint the centres, polish up the 2" dishes and get the flat caps made up.

Was gonna paint the centres red as they were going on the Lupo but I'm unsure what colour to do them now.

Yeah, it does look quite good as it is, just needs a fresh coat of paint on it.

Found these bad boys on german ebay, genuine roof bars, will have to swap the seat badges for VW ones. Me and the mrs are always going places so these will come in very handy, will have to get a nice roof box now.

I take way too many pictures of my car... :blush:

Here's a few after a clean today.

Still need to sort out the track rod when I eventually get the part and the front bumper could do with a spray, lots of chips on it. Wheels need a refurb too...
