These are standard 9 inch mini headlights bought of Ebay, they came with the chrome but there seems to be two types, clip on or screw on, mine are the latter, so I had to make a hole undernieth the kit to access the screw, they are also showing early signs of pitting, better quality clip on ones are on ebay for around 20, I only spent a bit more an the whole units, but you get what you pay for. I will change mine for th better ones at some point.

Only two small spots of rust found on body, only surface rust and now treated, was worried about sills incase of filler, but when taken back to bare metal they are as solid as if the car was new not 20 years old,

Thwarted by the rain this morning, just about dry enough tonight to prime the other door, looks longer and wider now.

Keeping the original brown mats for now, quite like the 70's look of them, but to cover up the Eunos Vspec badges will use chrome plates.

I got up yesterday to find a card from Volksman on my kit, they are local to me for restoration of VW's and others but I have a sprayer in mind for the kit but was alerady looking at the Merc campervan, I think it could have been listed better as there were no other bidders, (I did my research and I am happy with my buy) Volksman is on facebook and his work looks good.
