Hello Folks and welcome to my progress thread.. I have been reading this forum for some years now and thought it was time to join in with you guys
I come from a background in Renault 5 GT Turbos and Clio Williams but having spent the last 8 years in the Renault scene it all got abit boring. All my mates are hardcore Veedub nuts so it was only time before i gave in and got a dub lol I broke my current Renault 5 for spares and went on the hunt for a nice Mk1 Scirocco project.
I was straight on ebay but was a fool and bought the first Mk1 Scirocco i could lay my hands on.. It was a Red 1979 GLi & it was in need of quite abit of resto work to get it up to full scratch and also needed quite a few more parts to complete it.. I then bought another Blue 1978 GLS to donor the 1979 GLi... but having picked up the 78 GLS it was just to good to break.. So i was stuck with 2x Sciroccos that both needed resto work. I was torn because I only really need one Mk1 in my life and didn't have the heart to break one.
I was browsing the classified and stumbled across Oli's 79 Scirocco GLS for sale and fell in love... I worked out if i sold both my sciroccos projects and the parts. I could afford to buy Oli's which was a much more soild base to work from and only needed minor niggles to finish it off... Lucky for me a regiester forum member bought both cars and most my parts.

So here is the car as she stands now, Ive just got to fit the Mk1 Golf dash or the full GLi Loom and Original Black dash and tidy up a few odds and sods and it will be ready for the road.. I will update this thread as it progresses.
Thanks for reading and big shout Oli and all the other build threads that have inspired me
