Just seen what happened to the car! Sorry to hear what happened but well done with perservering and getting her to where she is now. Looking good Raj!

Thanks bro. Took about 3 months to sort out and luckily with the help of mates with empty garages it took the headache out of storing the car somewhere. :happy2:

Finally got round to doing my inner handles. £43 from TPS. 





Some gloss detailing to the inner handle area. 



Couple of recent snaps.







And finally swapped the rear Valance for a genuine edition 30 one.  :grin: :grin:

Upgraded to the Mk6 flat bottom steering wheel, all fully functional thanks to @Pashka and @shoaybmakda. Cheers for the help lads.





Love the chunky feel. Well worth it.

Removed the ugly top vent and added storage. Also swapped out my Hazard switch due to the original one fading.



And some winter shots with a mates iPhone Xs
