    The car is generally very solid, even in the usual mk1 polo spots. The worst bit on it is:

    Had a quick hour on it tonight, all seems mega solid, good battery tray, scuttle and all the hidden bits seem perfect, The inner wings have a bit of surface rust, but its only from thin paint and the metals all very solid! surface rust on the leading edge iof the inner wings but its not at all bad so will all clean up great! Glad it came with a decent spare bonnet as the one that was on the car is truly shafted! All in all its in pretty good shape considering its 27years old!

    So far it looks like:

    A rather shagged bonnet ( i blame the 'it was a good idea in the 80's' foam soundproofing!):

    Aye, hopefully now i have the money form the sale of the square, it shouldn't be too long! The gt i bought to nick all the running gear out of, has proven too good to rip to bits, so i'm running it as my daily and i'm either going to find another very cheap mot failed gt... or do the stem seals etc and keep the original motor in it as a temporary measure! Whatever happens, it has to be painted, dropped rimmed and detailed for july!Very Happy
