Long time no updates, car was held in the garage for the winter period. Undergone good few minor fixes and last things were prepared before I will take the car for a honeymoon trip around Europe in August :)

 

I got few bits and bobs, I am very happy to find this new central locking remote and receiver

I Got this by looking at one of the online parts store. It was listed as 405 unit but they nearly all the same. Part number is on the picture ;)

Nothing major Nikica. All usual space problems when fitting gti6 under the bonnet. This engine is the nightmare for every mechanic who need to fix anything on it because of lack of space.

;)

 

I manage to find "Gutmann" badge, I'm not really sure what to do with it, this car had few original Gutmann extras on it when I bought it but I wouldn't consider it 205 Gutmann

 

This might go on sale

Guys, the carpets which are in my car are exact copies of the original ones first installed in our cars. The guy who is producing them for us is able to make the copies for RHD cars. Anyone who would be interested please let me know, price would be around 50 pounds delivered.

Thanks, I really can't wait to pick up the car. Soon after the spray job I will be taking the car for a honeymoon trip around Europe ;) I will definitely upload few pics from time to time. After the trip car will be moved to Ireland where I'm working at the moment.

This is how the car looks straight after collecting it back from the spray guy. In next few days we have plans to put Zymol Concourso & Gtechniq on the car. As you can see on the picture front bumper need to be lifted or preferably changed as it's marked on one of the edges. Other then that it's a Happy day today !!!! :)
