      If you dont want rust you should get something with a galvanized body, not another mk3. You could have kept the other as a flintstone mobile.

      that sucks that you lost your mk3 to rust. but good things always come from bad things right?

      I wish I had a detached garage. Then no one could hear me swear and throw tools

      I'm in the same boat as you, my car is on a battle with rust and losing quickly. But I've got some plans

      90% of the mk3s around are in a battle with rust and losing quickly haha, mine also being one of them .

      looks like your project is coming along nicely bluntman, looking forward to see the final product

      actually it is i was scared ****-less when i striped my car and questioned my sanity on building up this shell..iam no mechanic..but iam handy with the tools , and have amazed myself at how quick and trouble free everything is going together(removing the auto pedal cluster was a bastard and putting in the manual one was even more so) but iam loving every minute of it now and learning the intimate secrets of the MK3 make-up lol

      cheers everyon and thx for the positive comments

      Good luck
