    bless it did you get the bike carbs with it that came when he got it
    was a great find sarah we even toyed with the idea of getting it before we put kanye onto it. but money stopped us again Sad does matt plan on a full restore like the Prinz and your mk1 think it deserves it poor little thing

    it's getting painted in either the original colour...... or maybe something a little brighter (still blue)

    it's not going to be mint or a show car....... built for been used

    Bonnet & the non rusty tailgate of eBay now painted Telecom Blue




    185/55x13 on the 8 inch wide ATSs 20 the pair compared to 70 ish per tyre for 195/45x13







    Matts done the arch on the drivers side today, flared the passenger side a little more & played with the rear bump stops a bit to keep the tyres off the arches too dark to take pics when finished

    Theres a bit more body repairs to be done before the rest of the car becomes blue

    Those rear arches look pretty cool. Will look quite nice when it's done (which I assume will be in no time at all at this rate!)
