Heat it up in a microwave, sit on it and slide off the front and back and it'll be a Sirocco

cool. like the split rim wheels.

my golf has failed its mot. needs another bit of welding and the stretched tyres are deemed too much.

Yeah, they're nice. Proper split rims too, problem is that the polished lip is corroded and they really need splitting and refinishing.

Splits are a PITA. The last set I had needed refinishing after one winter :roll:

Oh no, its turned into the VW owners club :shock: :wink:

All change here. Looks like the Alfa is sold and the Jensen is going the same way.

I now have a space in the workshop. I bought this and now I'm going to build a car around it :lol:
