Been a while since i have been on here, Thought i should post some updates. Owned the phase 2 GSI for over 3 years now and decided to get it mint and how i want the car to be. I stripped the car to a shell a few months ago bearing in mind, its never had a brake pipe, never being welded and on it's original rear arches. The paint was just a bit tired, the car was still presentable but i hated cleaning it as the bodywork wasn't up to my standards. Anyway i took the plunge and had the whole car repainted. Delighted with how it turned out and collect it next week to start the process of putting it back together!20210130_160950.jpg20210130_152610.jpg20210130_152726.jpg20210130_152712.jpg20210130_152643.jpg20210130_152628.jpg

Awesome finish mate! Can't wait to see the rebuild. Keep us updated.

I think even on a mint car, u can't beat modern paints for the finish and a thick clearcoat

Thanks lads, really happy with the paint finish. Painter done a top job. New genuine window rubbers put in and new fuel flap seal. Slowly building the car back up. Need to source some screws and clips but otherwise its coming together nicely.
