i think my head has damn near spun off....
Ok, I'm behind schedule with updates again, but I think this is life with building a car!
I've mocked up some trim and suspension to get some shots of the car, so rest assured, the fit and finish of the final product will obviously be at another level.
Plus I'm still waiting on loads more carbon trim and engine parts from Germany - customs is being a bitch to me lately and they're never any help over the phone!! Really starting to **** me!...
But anyway... Here are some pics

I'm keen for some feedback on the red centres: or ? I don't mind honesty, so if you hate them, feel free to say so It was just a random thing I thought I'd try. They were gloss black, but I felt this 'hid' them away too much...
I've also tried white centres, but with the untinted white on the rest of the car, it looked a bit too overboard

"Exactly! You should have to wear that badge of dishonor like a scarlet letter. A big 'A' for adulterating this forum with your mk4 filth lol."
Nope, no spacers, they're bolted straight on. I'm waiting on some camber plates for the rear axle, though, as this will tuck the rear wheels under properly. I mocked the rear setup together with washers and removed the springs to check the tyre clearance and it was all good, so you can fit 16x9s under the rear of a Mk1 with a some arch work and about -3deg of camber
I wasn't so sure about the big wheels when they arrived, but I'm sold now
