How is it ruining it?

Every man and his dog fits a 1.8T to a MK2

There is a reason for that  :grin:

Yup. Its called 'lack of imagination'  :laugh: :laugh:

Sooooo...........................

Moving on from the engine debate, I'm continuing with the bodywork issues. The paint is very tired as previously stated and the plastics are a bit "faded" too  :sad:

Got some "forever black" for the plastics and some auto finesse "triple" for the paintwork. I think it came out pretty good  :cool:


Forever black applied





And finally the auto finesse  :cool: :cool:

The car had two dodgy panels, the tailgate & the passenger door. Found some rot free ones from a guy breaking one locally and brought them back to prep for paint.



Fortunately the new boot had also got the wiper/washer hole deleted so it saved me a job

Sent them to paint, got them back and fitted them on (old panels on the floor)



Really pleased how the smooth tailgate looks :)
