    Remind us what underbody protection you used Vinnie?
    Are you after spraying the bottom yourself?

    "I've got w..."

    Nope but I do find Vinnie's attention to detail on coating and protecting his Mk2 shell to be, how shall I put it very 'stimulating'

    well been waiting for parts and no show so not a lot of progress (to Sam's enjoyment [:D]).had the starter motor fall on the fuel pump [:x] so going to put a mk3 tank in.[​IMG] then went to fit the custom pipes made for the car and! yep short [:x][​IMG] by a mile. So as they say it comes in threes I ordered two hubs from vw heritage and only one turned up. With that I managed to get a little bit done.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] oh and if any one needs some steering rack boots for a mk2 you can have them just for the price of p&p[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]also some drop links[​IMG] [​IMG]and the fuel pump used but working order might help a mk2 in need [:D]

    Looking great tho, I’m just jealous I don’t get this much car time.

    Does it make your eyes go funny being in there for a while? It’s very green?
