On Saturday I was at the Grotto. I had to wear a MIG welding mask with a No.11 glass to look at this awesome Scirocco as the finish was so shiny. Fantastic work as always Ant.

An earlyish train up to the Grotto today to pick up the results of Ant's incredible efforts.

A great blast back home down the A1/A14/M11 - car was always a joy to drive - it now looks the part.

Got to fit a NOS front bumper and tidy up the rear one plus the interior and engine bay crying out for a deep clean 'xtra style.
AP coilies and something 7 x 15 in the wheel department soon.

You all know he's one of my best mates but the boy can seriously paint and you should check out his next update from the Grotto too.
