Nice. I have bought the clear lens and side indicators to change out the amber ones on mine. Much prefer that look. Are there any ‘big’ jobs that need done or is it an overall spruce up?

Is that a “matching” hardtop?!

Nice one. Gotta love an S1. Even a broken one.

Cracking on with the clams, a lot of prep required and a section cut out and replaced due to an error in the mould. Plan was to have them off to the body shop soon but will need to wait til I’m back from my next trip at this rate.

It’s a what I’ve always wanted, nice to be able to make it happen. Wish I had made it slightly bigger but hey ho.

Did consider an upstairs but may get a car lift in the future
