Ah cool, well for the beetle its a full restoration, all welding sorted, new paint, engine rebuild, re wire it all etc etc, that ones going to take time!

The golf needs a new lambda sensor, abs wheelspeed sensor for the MOT, then for my personal benefit I want to replace the tailgate as its got rust below the window, get a key scratch across the bonnet sorted and one wheel needs refurbing, might do the cambelt aswell just to be on the safe side!!
Other than that, i pretty much just want to upgrade the tape player to a rcd200 or something like that...then enjoy it!

Always open to suggestions too though, i love checking out what other people have done :)
