think garage is big enough , will get the mk2 done to match the colour of the mk1 , picked up a set off15 inch bbs for the mk1 same style as the mk2 .
but might let them go as a set , the wife is after a s-line q5 , and 6 vehicles with only 2 drivers is to much

didnt want to leave them out james , i found out long time back when i had a set of koni's built for my ldv ( mazda 323 2l 16v turbo ) they did not have the helpers and when you hit sort of a big bump the coils would become loose and float around a bit and sometimes did not seat again , would have to jack it up and put them back in place, bit nerve racking at times
i removed 1 coil and it sat nicely with the 17's

pulling my hair out , and do not have much , trying to get the parts shipped back this side , when you say windscreen they turn their noses up , have now spoken to the guys at pilks this side and see if they will get me one , but they will only buy out from the agents ( but dont know if they still sell them )
the rest i will just get posted as per normal post ( lights / raintray / dash / door cards )

chris - i am getting the ecu and bits and bobs together for you , new 1 was launched and is the bees knees , even comes with a 2 inch lcd display for everything on the motor.

james - i will get new prices on the clutch kits and see what they will cost to chris's place

thx to chris getting bits and bobs sorted to post out ( dash / door cards / lights front and rear / raintrays from joost )
gave up trying to ship the windscreen , so got hold of pilks and they are sending 1 airfreight ( bronze tint ) 570 quid which i can live with
rocco going in for paint next week , jumped the gun a bit on covering the seats with a brown leather and when the carpet pitched from newtons i am not happy with the colour combo , so going to change seats and the rest to a cream colour leather with suede inserts , so there will be a full set of covers in brown up for grabs. ( pics somewhere on this topic )
gotta lay low for a while as hobbling on crutches as ankle got dislocated on site not watching where i was walking. stupid bugger at 48 years old these things are not good for the body
and to top it off the deal with the mk1 fell through as the guy kept pushing the price up , he was eventually up to 85k ( over 5000 quid )
