Congratulations on finishing it off and getting it to a show, I would love to see it in the flesh any other shows planed or are you going to the Scirocco register meet in August?

What is it with old AA badges, there seems to be loads of them appearing on VW's?

Thanks mate in really chuffed with how it came out and the comments at the show made it all worth while.

I'm looking forward to the national meet so as long as the weather is ok and I've got a few more miles under my belt as it's a long way then I'll be there :)

Haha not sure about the AA badge trend

Haven't updated this for a while...

Still on the stock wheels and I haven't got round to getting either set of caps painted to match yet :(

Anyway some pics...

Few pictures from today and always nice to go home with an award.

Been a little while since I updated this.

I had been offered an indoor spot at Ultimate Dubs this year, unfortunately I couldn't make it this weekend :(

Image

Been looking for a Nissan to replace my current every day car and finally found the one.

Image

Anyway back to the Scirocco, I've replaced the rear washer jet, repeaters and a couple of other small bits just to improve the overall look. Mainly been concentrating on the front end. Replaced the indicators with NOS items, got myself a red stripe grille, some original style plates, swapped the AA badge and finally not to every ones taste fitted fogs which I am going to use with Hella covers. I also replaced the number plate trim which I had freshly painted in satin black.

Image

Because I am using a NOS bumper on the car it didn't have fog brackets so I stripped the plastic today, had the fog brackets powder coated, coated the metal frame in underseal and rebuilt.

Image

Finally with parts been hard to come across for the Mk2 I met forum member Zac a few weeks ago who was breaking his car, I've got a few spare parts now for the car and quickly running out of space so had to be creative with storage.

Took the Scirocco to the first show of the year, got inside at Elsecar and also managed to get an award which was nice considering the quality of cars on display.
