    Damn right. I'm itching to get in it for a drive. I used to go to north Lancs club GTI years gone by and have lost touch with regional meets. Any worth a look ?

    Not into the car meeting scene as such, so no idea I'm afraid.

    Great to see this in the hands of a dedicated and enthusiatic owner. Keep the faith re the leather, sh1t happens and often worse than this!

    Best of luck with the restoration and look forward to seeing this in the flesh some time- never seen a Campaign

    i dyed some seats about 2 years ago, and trust me they are still 100% perfect on the leather parts, its just vinyl you have problems with.

    utmost respect for doing all this very good work.
    need another corrado in my life, much less hassle than a woman.

    Great to see a Campaign getting the love. I think the thing to do with the leather would probably be the pick a new hide in a very close color match and restore the full interior. The original will be aging now anyway, I just had my Recaros retrimmed and they look better than factory fresh.
    I helped set up the North Lancs meet many years ago and stayed involved for a number of years but it pretty much dwindled away when Dave Freeman stepped down as host. This meet has been taken over by the NWVag meet at the Leaa Gate, Preston and the Unplased H2O meet at the Boatmans, Riley Green

    Campaign isnt my cup of tea but big respect for getting it back on its feet and pointing in the right direction ......wish more people kept their corrados nearer standard like you are, it really would have been criminal if you 'messed' with a campagin....... .........the interior should be worth the wait by the sounds of it.

    Considered it for a moment but to be fair under all the dirt,hand grease and detritus the leather once I'd Gliptoned the leather all the interior an was in excellent condition with very little signs of wear so seems pointless having the whole car done. I'd also like to try and keep it as near to original as possible.

    The main bits that need a look at with the dash are: Handbrake handle/Gear knob/door handles and if I was being picky the seat bolster as well.

    I'll have a look at the Preston meets so thanks for that as well.

    Lights on buzzer fitted and operational

    Fitted a lights on buzzer today. £1.36 for the buzzer from Maplins. Wired it into the interior light and headlight loom and it works a treat.

    Re: James' tired Campaign is re-born thread

    Went to the dealers (Corkills Wigan) and got the following:

    [strike:2rxshkvc]Wing mirror gaskets
    Battery jacket
    Badge clips
    Rear washer cover
    Oil cap[/strike:2rxshkvc]

    Other parts are in the Wanted section as they are either stupidly priced or obsolete:

    [strike:2rxshkvc]Rear number plate plinth[/strike:2rxshkvc]
    Rear spoiler support sleeve
    Engine cover - VR6 DOHC
    LH + RH under trays
    Scuttle tray water deflector
    Headlight lenses
    Indicators (both)
    Fogs (both inc housing)
    Rear qtr glass (both sides) if I can't get them out in one piece.
    Clear headlight protectors

    Getting a price for the paintjob on Wednesday.
