I spent a few hours yesterday on the old Girl put the rear wheels back on and dropped it off the jack. At this point I suddenly realised that there maybe some room to rent under the rear arch’s I thought I’d get away with no spacers but it’s not looking like it but over all I’m happy with how it’s looking.

The arch`s are not finished yet as we have a lip of sealer to run round the outside before we start painting. I hope to have it painted in the next two weeks.

Well its been a long time since i updated this not much has happened with the Golf as time just got away from me and some issue`s with my health has stopped progress for abit. I have managed to get back out to the garage and make some progress lately I also booked it in for Paint next week as well so im hoping come the end of July I will have a fully painted Golf at long last. I reckon Im about 6 months behind where I wanted to be but sure its getting there..

I have found a Local guy do to a alot of carbon work for me so the black extended arch`s will be getting made in Carbon plus a one off customer front spoiler....so tonight my plan is to removed all the black arch`s and sealer so they can be sent off and done in Carbon. I also have a Carbon rear diffuser that is 50% made but the company making it are beating about the bush I paid for it three years ago and still dont have it they done the same with my spoiler it was paid for a year in advance and turned up a year later.

I have been chatting with Tillet as well about seats as I cant bring myself to fit my R32 seats as they look better in my bedroom than they do my car. So after chatting with both Pete @Brookfab and Tillet Im going to be getting these once I get one to test fit to make sure they will fit the car and me. lol

Hope you’re feeling better (y).
Thanks alot :grinning:. I am in with the Cardiac investigation unit tomorrow so Im hoping they might have some answer`s for me. I have been suffering from Severe Hypertension but the scary thing is my BP is to high when Im sleeping so it puts me at risk of having a heart attack when I sleep. I am now on 12 tablets a day to keep me right and they are helping but the Fast Pulse to Slow Pulse is taking it out of me.

Been a few months since I updated this and to be fair things haven’t really moved on since the last time but I have wheeled it outside to see what it looks like in daylight and also it’s off for paint this evening.

The rear bumper is sitting wonky as I only put it on to see what it looks like it does need a little adjustment on the right but it will be done once all is painted.

Also Pete @brookfab has the starting point of the jigsaw puzzle I am now going with a sidewinder manifold as it will be nice to show off the turbo plus it allows more room at the back of the engine for the exhaust pipe to run.

@greyfloppyhat yes once its back from Paint its a matter of building it all back up finding out what seats i want as im still undecided and then wiring it all. I have no clue on the wiring end of things so im leaving that to a good friend todo. I even got him a loom thats fully labelled so it should make life easier.
