Hi all thought id share how I'm spending my winter months.
A few years ago I bought 3dr r8 that someone had modified, less than 2 weeks later a transit connect decided to use it as his brakes and wrote it off.
Whilst looking for something to spend the insurance money on, I found a 216GTi 3dr on ebay, and after a brief chat with the seller I was off to Gatwick to collect it.

The first pre crash (and my montego turbo hiding at the side of the picture)


and the GTi when I first bought it


The green one was stripped of its complete interior, some of the glass, turbo bonnet, spoiler, and suspension, and it all went onto the GTi along with a turbo front bumper.



And that's how it stayed until January 2016 when I sold it.
So when I saw it sitting in a mates yard a couple of months ago, there was only going to be 1 outcome.
And home she came...


After a wash I decided id respray her and freshen her up a little.
So ive stripped most of the exterior, and undersealed the front end.



Got a few small areas of rust to deal with, but nothing to bad
N/S window


And 2 plates needed on the N/S sill

Rear

Nice one just got a R8 to replace my ZR with to go racing with. You don't have a spare GTI high level spoiler do you?

Unfortunately not I'm afraid. I did have at one point but I have no idea what I done with it. sorry.
I had to rescue it. my 6 year old daughter loves the car and hasn't forgiven me for selling it the first time. I promised her I'd get it back one day so I left myself little choice ?
