    vw must have changed to design a little between the 12v and 12v as although the thickness of the coolers are the same the outer dimentions are slightly different.

    Not much now, just the rear panels and the rear lower outer panel.
    theres little bits here and there which we will finish off after we have mocked everything up and made sure any brackets/clips are fitted now before we strip it down again for paint.

    made a little more progress last night

    As I need to pop in and grab a panel for the rear quarter from Al we decided to start mounting the front end and make sure everything still lines up tonight

    Santa’s been nice to me today and replaced my ball joint extenders as I had to return my last ones to Al on a re-call.
    Can’t wait to get these fitted so I can properly start to build the front end up again

    new panels have a coat of paint in readyness of fitting.
    need to make up some new supports to support the rear panel and start cleaning the stonechip off.

    I’m just glad that it’ll be rot free

    started the arduous tast of cleaning the sealer from the bottom of the caddy today as I only had a few hours to spare on her.

    apart from scraping at it and showing it some heat how does everyone else remove it?

    and as I need to move the caddy as my mate needs to use his jig four poster I started (temporaraly) fitting up the front end and also check to make sure things are lining up again lol.
