Cheers mate, I guess that's one of the hardest parts when owning a project, finding space to work on it lol

Few more from today's work:

Both rear arches finished





Bonnet and wings all fitted and fully aligned, despite the wings being genuine, it took near 2 hours to make all the lines perfect!

Just a little!

Got loads to do on the engine yet and I'm not looking forward doing the wiring lol, I'm starting to become such a perfectionist on this that I'm rewiring the hole car, hiding the wires, and putting the battery in the boot lol

Can't wait to get the coil overs wound down and the new wheels on!

Cheers, I'm going to keep the colour under wraps for the moment as I'm not 100% sure if I will stick with the colour lol waiting to see how it comes out… If I hate it i'll be getting it re-done!  :roll:

All will be revealed soon!

Another quick update,

I've removed the last few parts from the Golf, Brake servo and linkage, grab handles, speedo cable, door latches etc .. Got ANOTHER box of spares to deal with lol

Car has been primed on the outside but needs a good rub down and re primed, then they are going to start on the bay and inside.













Looking good so far, can't wait to see it in paint!

Also finally finished stripping the gearbox, 5 hours later…



Need to prep it and repaint now and then move onto the the engine block.

Feeling quite guilty of the colour as it's been done recently on a well known PVW car… couldn't find any other colour that I really liked (had to be a non metallic). Just worried now that we'll both be at shows next year and people will look at my car as a copycat car…

So it is not the color of the one with silver e30s splits? It is the colour of the one my cousin posted on my fb page. The one you posted a pic of mine on?

Correct… Sprayed a sample wing in the manila green colour and in the flesh I wasn't really too keen, looked nothing like the photos…

Problem is I then needed to find something else, and didn't have much time..
