I shall tell them nothing Doc! Meanwhile I`m just up and it`s as frosty as fook round here but no snow. Not fair I want snow and I want plenty of it.

Yeah, coz then I can p*ss past people in my Frontender and laugh when my mates phone me up to come and rescue them in my truck :lol:

Part two of operation clean up on the GTi starts as soon as I can be arsed to go outside. Leave it in the sun to hopefully remove the frost before giving it a final polish and clean the interior whilst I`m there.
Incidentally Phil are you still running the GTi register? Just wondered how many are estimated to survive in this format (series two, phase one I think) in the UK?
Cheers,

Due to lack of interest the register is on the back burner, but I do intend a 'relaunch' at the CCC National... with a distribution of flyers etc... :D

You don't really want to sell this GTi do you, Billy. Be honest :wink:

Fancy joining the register?! :D

No, I don`t! Especially after giving the interior a bit of a clean and generally being suprised all round just how clean this car is. Most of the usual suspects (glove box hinges, door hinges, doors, sills etc) are very good/excellent and now the boot floor`s been welded and a new rear box exhaust it`s pretty much there.
Heater control cable seized (big suprise) and some minor areas of attention required here and there but I`d suggest way above average, especially for the age.
However the TZD estate will be my main car and I have the Frontender to have a laugh in and I cannot afford to keep 3 cars in tax, MOT and repairs so it has to go.
In fact I`m so confident of the car I`m going to ask winning bidder for a £25 deposit when it goes on eBay and if they come up and look at it and it`s not as good as described I`ll relist it and they don`t have to purchase it.

When it's all cleaned up and 'prepped' are you going to do some stunning photography? (Go on I'll need something for the 2008 calendar, affter all :lol: )

I must say I'm tempted - although I don't necessarily ever want to buy back something I've already sold on!
