So far ive managed to gather together a Corrado Rad / Fan setup G60 brakes and hubs. Im gonna stick with the Mk2 4 Stud setup to keep the 1 of 50 appearence as id like to keep it looking that little bit different (and the cars worth more with the original set up so ketp everything). Because shes a pre 90s car im gonna swap the whole loom over

lots of work there fella but a good doner car and i bet you can recoup most of your 300 if not more! It will certainly confuse many with the sound of the V
