Finally took the plunge in putting a coating on top of the paint work whilst it still looks good. I chose Gtechnic products . CSL and Evo4 and spent the day cleaning, degreasing, applying, wiping, buffing x2. Long day..
The icing on the cake was fitting the Vw roof trims that were remade. I've had them since Heritage could get this part and as they are genuine, the fit was perfect. Took 5 mins each side at a vast cost. And I fitted the side repeaters. Small steps but all in the right direction. Day off tomorrow so I may fit the side mouldings and look what condition the outer door window seals are like... I feel I am putting off getting the windscreen fitted, hmmmm
