Scrap it, buy a new one, easy life.

Some people just like to make life difficult.

Ha ha!

Trust me, 83 is tough enough. Struggling to find a good condition petrol tank which isn't an inferior copy!

So is a tank your first priority?

I've just scored some bits at a VW show today. I'm there again tomorrow, so will ask around for MK1 bits for ya. I know a few guys in the 'scene' so if you send me a pm of what you're after,I'll try and sort you out.

Original yes, but as they say, in the beginning God made the Mk1 and the world was good, but then he made it better and created the Mk2 :) then he hit middle age and got fat and lazy just like the Mk3 ....... :)

Enjoy your pint have one or two for me :)
