Hi,

Picked up this local Mk3 Gti 8v last september with FSH 2 owners from new for a bargain price having just creeped over the 10000 mile mark (not even broken in for a Golf!)

It was standard apart from a set of old school "Boss 17's"  :sick: and original smoked GTi Hella rear lights.

Here are the 1st pics I took :




Pretty much left in storage over the winter months and a list of parts has assembled including :

Smoked Side Repeaters
Votex Roof Bars
35mm Spax Lowering springs
Morrette Quad Headlights
Powerflow Back Box
BBS Solitudes(Winter Wheels)
Original Mk3 BBS Anni 16's (Need to be refurbed)
VR6 Deep chin spoiler

Only done a couple of bits so far including the fitting of the roof bars, the side repeaters and the springs and here's how it's looking after a good polish and clean :



Plenty more to come over the next few months so I will keep you all updated.

In the final stages of the wheel refurb now......here's a sneak preview of how they're going to look. Not bad for a first time effort.
