Christ it’s a long time since I updated on this car. Well it’s still in hibernation, I’ve seen it about four times in 18 months. Our house sale is finally going through after 24 months on the market and I am looking for opportunities to work back in the North West. Beginning of last month I went down to see Bic and picked up a few bits related to the car.

Interior 3/4 door cards now paired up. They’re still a bit dirty and have some gaffer tape residue on them. They also seem to be special lightweight ones and thinner than those to be had through the Streamline Carbon shop which gives them more flexibility to fit to the shell:

Fitted – interior needs a clean and a respray 😉

Also picked up few other bits, which you’ll have all seen before like carbon foglight/air intake surrounds for the front bumper. These hub caps however are custom for the Image wheels:

Not much else to report. I’m looking at 180 GTIs as donors for a new engine and I’ll put an EW back in once I get a workshop up and running with the car in it. I am toying with another 106 for a road car too as long as we have the space for one on the drive, plenty of nice bits to bolt on…
