Oh that's great Kirk, show me up with your pristine example why don't you!  :rolleyes:  :grin:

That looks phenomenal, lovely colour too.  I hate to think how much you spent to get it to that standard, have you got a build thread somewhere that I can have a gander at?

PS... Do you always carry a boat on the roof?  :grin:  :wink:

I think you should share more info on your idea before you commit.

Yeah wasnt cheap but saved a lot by getting parts from volksheaven in doncaster. I am planning on doing a build thread as it was dire before i bought it. Lol i was actually thinking of doin the roof in vinyl to look like a boat. In all its took roughly a year to get to this stage, its been hard but theres no rust at all on it now thankfully

Hahaha, you should do the boat vinyl, that would look great, certainly not something i've seen at show before!
 
Missed a trick, it's great doing a build thread while you work, however, it would still be great if you did one now with some of the before, in progress and and finished pics together to show off all the hard work.

I wish there was a breakers like that near me!... Actually, right now I don't.  Attention to the MK1 first!
