sorry for the late reply i should really keep on top of this. heres an update of whats to come.

should have the set of Porsche D90s on my car by the end of this week (2x7j 2x8j) with 195/45/16's on

there has also been a lot of cutting/welding/filling on the car to sort various rust patches out. but the worst culperate, the dreaded "wing of rust" still lives until i can think of the best way to weld it.

Ive also got a vento front end to go on (after i get it sprayed) and have smoothed out the washer jets and am going to relocate them to somewhere more hidden. the colour ive decided on doing my car is, drumroll please....

POW!
my new mk3 100_0225



and last but not least, this month ive splashed out almost 300 on sounds so il get some pics up when they get here. also its double din in a mk3 time Wink

i still need the discount for the head unit. ive ended up getting two 12" shallow sitting subs, 4x2 inch tweeters and 4x 6 1/2 inch component speakers

because theres no uk distribution for it. but its not as bad as it sounds its only the colour its self, not the base and everything else
