    Got the machine polisher out today and gave these a good polish. Mk1 has a 1.8T conversion for all those interested.

    Thanks for all the kind words people. Feels like the elbow grease paid off!

    Yeah the 20VT conversion is pretty special. The thing absoultely shifts, and because of its lightweight and rickety-ness (if that makes sense) it makes it feel even more so.

    Thanks again.

    No, no, the Mk1 isn't mine! It's my cousin's car. He just bought it last month. He's got it up and running, but is sourcing a new gearbox and possibly a new ECU. Drives fine for now but is only running 0.5 bar boost at the moment.
