Looks great and quick turnaround once it got in. I like the colour- is that black magic? Looks amazing in the Sun.

Cheers guys a lot of hard work paid off. It’s funny as many people say corrados never seem to win awards so there is now hope for all us owners lol

I have to say the whole trip was around 500 miles and she never missed a beat. It may be on 242k but I can honestly say it drove better than my daily

When I took my Golf R to a show, a tdi with an R kit got a prize and it was said that he had made an effort where as mine was just a golf R with some wheels and lowered

I build a car with a few subtle mods, take that to shows and get nothing, where as a rusty polo with a pen on the roof so people can write on it gets a trophy

I think there may be some truth in the Corrado's never win, you did well 

 

P.S. yes, I am a bitter old man 🙂

That's a really nice, neat job. Something I really need to do. Every time I open the bonnet the old stuff is shedding itself all over the engine. 

What did you use to remove the glue of the old stuff?
