    The rears were a 99p Ebay special... and even came packaged up individually in Hella boxes! They are absolutely mint! A really good purchase.

    Still loads to do though. I picked up an early Vento front end and a new headlining on Sunday... so it's all coming together quite quickly.

    Need to get the gearbox sorted, then it'll be up on the ramps so I can make sure the brakes are fine as it's been stood for a year. Then a HUGE service, and then I can get it in for paint. Give it 6 weeks, and it'll be on the road...

    I've got some lovely Lexus-style rears you can have! lol! I think I might burn them rather than force them onto someone and make them miserable!

    Simon... yeah, it's a Wolfsburg badge. Just waiting on a genuine VW rear badge, then it's coming straight off. Yuk!

    You can have the Wolfsburg badge gratis, no problem.

    The rears were off on the Bay of Plenty. I only wanted a tenner for them though...

    Bugger. It's failed it's MOT... 2 pages of notes!

    Long story short... leaking fuel system, handbrake not 100% effective, front to rear brake lines corroded, rear brake hoses, top mounts excessive play, front ball joints excessive play both sides, front brake discs both sides and passenger headlight not working within parameters (Vento front end going on anyway!).

    Not too bad I guess and all fixable, but I could have done without the leaking fuel and brake lines!

    It's alive I tell you... ALIVE!

    So... it's eventually back on my drive after 3 months of mechanical and paint work being carried out!

    Apologies for the shockingly horrid dusk phone pics, promise to get some decent ones up this coming weekend...

    Steve Knaggs is making me up some bolt-on 25mm and 30mm spacers for font and rear to step the steelies out... so it'll look a LOAD better when they're done. A few cosmetic things to do to (like new custom headlining, etc) then it's ready to rock!

    It's a bit low... it scrapes on my drive... and it's flat!

    Do not worry... new English pressed plates have been ordered... these crappy German ones came with it when I originally bought it. Just not got round to replacing them yet!

    Lamin-x is on the way for the headlights too. Wink

    Just got one bit of internal trimming to do tonight (hopefully) then the weekend will see the headlining and pillar covers going in and a few other leather bits n bobs to finish it off.

    Just standard Beetle steels painted silver.

    I've got some full centre caps for them, but can't quite get them to fit, so got some Mk2 Golf mini-caps to go on instead in the meantime...
