Well as some of you may already know im buying Rich's (Savage16v) GSi, and finally the wait is over, Rich is kindly dropping the GSi off to me on Sunday.

Here are a couple of pics of my current car (well how it looked before i put it back to standard)

Rich's build thread / diary can be seen here : http://www.mk3oc.com/forum/showthread.php?74730-My-Phase1-GSi and hopefully this thread will live up to the last and i can put my own touch on the car.

I though i would start a thread ready for when i get the car as i have quite a lot planned for it over the winter, through next year and onto next winter but i will come to that later ;)

Here are some pics i took of the car at billing, Im a bit of an amature photographer so there will always be plenty of pictures :)
This is how the car will look when it comes to me on sunday, and then the fun begins as the car is going to be off the road until March next year, one so it doesnt have a hard winter and secondly so i can put my own touch on it, onto the pics:

Great pics mate, this is truly one of the best mk3 gsi's left..
It is indeed, there are a couple of bits of tidying that I want to do, but I am striving for as near perfect GSI as a i can, to say im a perfectionist is an understatement lol

Good luck with it :) can't wait to see what happens with it next.
There will be plenty of updates soon and through the winter i wont keep u waiting long ;)

Well today I've been having a bit of a play with a spare plug cover and some paint, not sure myself was just something I want to try

From this

To this

Primered

And the colour I'm trying ;)

Also bought this which needs a re-polish

And a boot panel I bough at billing, debating having it carbon skinned :)
