pretty much done and dusted! engines sat on a trolley waiting to be stripped and rebuilt,unbolted the subframe and lifted shell over the top! (dont think the garage the last bloke used wanted to take the inlet system off to change the rocker gasket theres oil everywhere even in the spark plug recesses!) all the loom is in a box on me racking and the shell minus the front chassis legs is sat on my trailer awaiting the scrap man!

flipped her onto the roof to take off the pump lines and rear beam! wont be able to do that to swap em over to gbh! and will have to get new disks and pads for it too! got the 16v master cylinder and 256's to fit so should see some better stopping distances! mind you the 239's work really well so must be the goodridge hoses helping out!

When I had GBH I put the braided hoses on, the front got new discs, pads and reconditioned calipers. The back got new hubs, shoes and I'm pretty sure new wheel cylinders. Missing the old car now but glad you have plans for it. Good to see it in good hands again!!

close up of the professional upholstery!

re glued sunroof panel as it was a bit loose and re attached roof sound deadening and clips for interior light

all in but can you spot the mishap? got the gti courtesy ligt in there aswell with the timer delay! i've got a smoked one somewhere but its just finding it!

and re did the shelf as it squeaks on the c pillars! also fitted a baton from left to right and cut a few extra holes in for if and when i put a sub in there!

and finally a nice space saver spec carpet in the boot! flatness!

it really is a pain in the arse job but its worth it i think! if your going to change your headlining i reccomend you get it down somwhere flat firs an duct tape all the weak areas before you even try to fit it in the car! gives you a bit more room for mistakes! oh and dump the front seats so you can move around easier!
