Saw this for sale just the other day! Shame about those rolled out rear arches. Never been a fan of fat, cambered wheels personally - would as been just as smart a ride with the right sized wheels and a bit more clearance I feel.

 

Not many of this shape about as far as I can tell - look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Not got heaps of experience myself but from one of the closeups of the arch in the classified it looked like they had been - the corrosion and the lack of a nice square crease seemed a giveaway!

Nice looking car and great colour, I'd seen on the bay too, love the look of it. Think the GT arches will look the part alright. Nice set of scirocco seats maybe 😉

 

Keep the updates coming dude 😎

Those exhaust rubbers can be a pain to fit, have cabletied 1 side before as a temporary measure!

New ones were £3 or so posted to the door with Clubpolo GSF discount😉

Can’t oost after it says file too big 

 

but basically I took the disturbingly unsafe rear washers out to reduce camber and they still fit under arches which is ok
