I just love the vans. Had a good look at it and just thought it was very tasty. Seats were lovely what were they out of? Chrome strips suit the colour very well. Did you have a lot of work to do to it?


cheers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif) seats were reupholstered by a neighbour of mine and were originally out of mk2 gti as far as I know. There was a fair bit of work on her alright. drivers pillar was rotten and someone had
had lifted it off a truck with a strap across the roof which took a bit of work. needed new door and wing and both rear and front panels were pushed in. the worst part was in around the heater where a family
of mice had set up home but arches and boot floor were just about perfect so was just the usual respray work after that and then all the mechanical stuff. yea like the chrome with the orange but im not to sure about
the wheels so might change them at some stage

I reckon I'll just cut out the rust n weld up/patch it up - needs both door pillars, but its not a bad shell all up; sills n arches are rock solid; Tdi conversion is the plan...
