Finally found the pictures of moving day and some progress at the grotto earlier this year...

After the move very little has happened due to family life, international travels and the every expanding Trimsport! However have kept gathering parts and had some fresh inspiration at edition38 a few weeks ago, so see what the next few months bring! :)

Glad it's getting back on track.
Just do it, do it, do it, do it, you will love it......
Using my Mk1 Scirocco as a daily drive for the last month as working on my daily and loving driving it and the amount of people coming up and talking about the car at petrol stations, supermarkets, any where you stop and get out.

Yeah its time to dust the project down again!
Need to do a bit of juggling as we're building another car as well, but be great to get the Mk1 out in 2016! :)

Sadly hasn't been much progress due to being so busy with the business... might be time to get that G60 engine test fitted! Engine Mounts ahoy! ;)

In shocking news, the car was dipped at Enviro Dip in Nottingham last year and is currently at the paint shop being preped for new paint! :-o
