Looking good Andy. Like your wheels, nearly bought the same for a build, wish I had. Look forward to seeing your car in colour soon.

all the interior is mk1 it dose fit well fit a bit of work and for me is worth the pain for the look. even the guy at the paint shop asked what year car it was and did not believe the reg plate. that's a tribute forgive the pun

first day back off holiday car out in the sunshine what could be better. I did buy viper stripes but I think it would spoil it. I need a tribute badge or I am on the lookout for a GTO badge and some head light covers.

I agree black is hard to paint that's why its British racing green catches the light really well...LOL

If it looks black, that means you've picked the correct BRG!!

Wow that looks great Andy. Could I please use your pics on our website/Facebook/eBay etc?

I have another batch of headlight covers arriving next week.

Are you adding a grille?

Andy - Your car looks great.

Especially given all the hassle you had with scrapping the first donor.

Enjoy, Paul.

PS
I've added a couple of your photos to the "Useful Info" thread.

Great job Andy, and I love the colour.
What make/size wheels are they, they really suit it.
