    Hi welcome to the Forum.
    Nice looking G60 course white is the new silver so you are very "in" this year
    Is that an ominous RAC van lurking in the background to one of the pics
    or just a look alike

    Re: new to forum

    to reply to a previous post yes that is a rac van. i used to work for RAC Auto windscreens
    Thought it was time to update my gallery post a few pics of my car.

    After an incident bout a year ago with my bonnet deciding to open at 70 it all kick started a bit of a restoration.

    After a long arguement with insurance managed to get it all fixed and got a full respray as well, all tho that did involve me stripping the car for him and putting it back together. i thought i might as well try and find a new door to replace a rusty one i had on while i was at it and kinda ended up buying other whole corrado LOL

    Well that was it b4 i knew it i was swopping all sorts over "might as well do that while am at, that ones better nick than this one " you know how it starts!?

    So far swopped from early grey interior to a mint late black interior, fitted the late bonnet and wings, late rear bumper, rad support, headlights, new clutch and passat td gearbox, 68mm pulley n chip, replaced wishbones, steering rod ends,anti roll bar bushes, new calipers, new exhaust soon to be de catted, thats about it i think!

    and still got these to fit
    borbet as.jpg
    and these on the way
    coilovers.jpg
    and before anyone says it yes i know, i should have had the arches rolled when i had it sprayed. hindsights a wonderful thing.

    Might well see it at some meets at some point soon!

    All red or dark tinted OE lights would look sweet on a nice clean white G60 like that! Nice looking motor
