      Oh, sorry, yessir, I'm here. Yes, with some trimming and welding, Mk1 brackets can be fitted to the back of Mk2 brackets so that it all screws into the stock mounting holes, and...

      While we tend to other things Ive been a bit sloppy on this thread, so here's clean-up:

      1) The bumpers are painted with satin black, and if it doesn't hold up (it has), I'll blast them to the base...

      An appropriate distinction was made in that Mk2 Scirocco, while it is an A1 chassis, has the smaller spare tire well, and therefore it is more akin to a Cabriolet up to 1993 than it is to an early...

      It's OEM/original material but it's the best I could accumulate from 3 cars worth of seats. The seats are modular so they're easy to build up from individual bits.

      I don't have a spare around to test. Even if I did, it'd be a hassle to install it.
