pic heavy update 22/12/2011 !!

hi,
   thought i d say hi as i am new to the site and as i have now got my mk1 gti 1981 at last i thought i should join.

i bought my golf a few weeks ago a driver mot'd nice silver gold bbs alloys and i was very happy. i then decided to rebuild the head as stem seals were gone and also strip to a shell to get it all resprayed and sort any problems. i have come across a couple and thought people might be able to help. i need an inner wing passenger and a front panel as my mate ( the helpfull owner of the bodyshop i have filled with golf parts lol) has said they could be welded but while in pieces best to get them sorted so anyone now the best place to source these parts?

i will try put up a few pics when i figure out how!!!

cheers
phil :lol:

think with those wheels mate, a nice green would be nice dark green, not blue though it would look like a vintage subaru
