      Welcome to the madness. Car looks pretty busted, you have an arduous (and expensive) road ahead of you. Arm yourself with much patience, you will need it at many points along the way.

      That's a hell of a transformation (in a very good way)

      Only thing I don't like is the MK3-style clear fogs/turns and InPro's but each to his own
      Besides that, nice wheels, paint looks awesome and interior is really good (love the DDI steering wheel )

      Very nice work!
      I do not understand why some coupes make the grade and others do not. Everyone knows, for instance, that the Corrado was as tasty as an East End prize fighter with the looks of a Benetti super-yacht. The four-cylinder was good, but the VR6 was about as close as you could get to Ferraridom without buying a Ferrari. And what happened? You all went to the pub instead. -Jeremy Clarkson-
