Coming along nicely - my own black car has a similar homebrew throttle cable guide and the Phrim solved the servo/bottle issue with a just about fitted nicely reservoir from a mk3 polo (the updated breadvan era ones) if you look at my A16GTX thread.

Good luck with the final stages!

Been working on these for about 10 years, im assuming they had to make a new copper arrangement for the compensators?

As it happens i should have a spare polo master cylinder and res. I have got a scirocco one now so would like to keep it as simple as possible at the mo

Also noticed this, the engine has sat for along time and diesnt turn that often so its posible its condensation but ill keep an eye on it as it seems to be thicker than what ive seen in the past

The other didnt come out so well, sanded it back a few times but the paint always moved away from spots

I may also tint the black stripes on the rear lights with it

Armour door plates look good, how did you prep them for the paint?
I’ve a set of door plates that need painting.

They were keyed and zinc primered and then painted black ages ago so cleaned and keyed then fresh black, flip laquer and normal laquer

Ill probably go over them with a light tinting spray to darken them for a black car
