    Update on my car

    Some of you on MIG and Mk3OC may well hae already seen it.... it's not at a stage where I can call it "complete." Not finished, just complete

    Came out the bodyshop for bumpers spraying a week ago, and I'm soooo happy Keep driving with a grin on my face!
    Just took it down Polish for inside+outside wash, then went for a wander to find somewhere pretty for picture taking. Found a quaint little church near Bisley/Pyrford and got snapping away! Here's the best of...

    (And yes, I know my exhaust is wonky...)


































































    Left to do:
    Short term priorty is just my ICE. Get custom front doorcards finished, find some shallower-fiting 6.5" comps, and amp all 4 (F+R) speakers. And amp for subs.

    Medium term - Ph1 mirrors, electric sunroof, electric rear windows, random lil bits! Also want to/need to get the 2 'door opened into mine' creases down my driver side pulled out, and a couple dinks on each rear arch tidied too. Ph2 GSi sideskirts

    Long term - V6, 4/6 pot brakes, 5-stud + Vec ph2 GSi wheels, some kinda custom interior. Also wanna go on a smoothing mission - no handles, no aerial, no bump-strip swage line, no petrol filler cap - the works!

    very nice mate, splitter looks great, how much effort was it to get it to fit so well? Don't personnally like the wheels, but i never have on any car. GSi vec wheels should look

    Much much better Rob, really coming along. I think you should splash out on some new number plates. That front one is lowering the tone of an otherwise splendid bumper.

    Wow. Loads of pics there! Take it easy, Rob!!

    I am assuming its a mk4 front apron and mk4 front door handles? Looks good though.
