Bit of a coincidence that we have the same name and come from the same place! :lol: Great looking car!

Re: MK1 Wheel Trims on Stag Rims

That's very clever. I've always loved the original wheel trim and chrome nave plates with the enamel badges. (Even nicer when they were real enamel, not just coloured paint) Has anyone else ever noticed that the cut-outs in the inner edge of the trim don't quite match the positions of the bulges in...

That is very effective - the black paint does give the appearance of them being 13" rims. Your Mk1 looks very tidy, and so does your garage! Can't say the same about my garage.... :roll:
Thanks Johnny, I've just finished the 2000's revival, pleased with how it turned out :D

Gearbox Mount

Edit: Just realised the photos aren't loading and are in the wrong order, I'm sure you get the right idea though. :cry: Hi all, Sticking to my schoolboy budget, I decided to rebuild the ruined gearbox mount rather than forking £70 out for a new one.

Re: Boot Trim Panels Mk1 2000
