    Massive fail.

    Sorry this is for my mk2 golf but you guys have had a fair few things trimmed in the past. VW Heritage replica OE vinyl headlining material combined with a new fibre glass back board - pictures below to illustrate the products. Very disappointed took the car to a trimmer as I know its a tricky job to glue the material on to the back board so sourced out a professional trimmer in Walsall. Looked brilliant once fitted but only after 8 weeks the glue has failed or the VW material has shrunk beyond the tolerance of glue (we had some hot days this summer). Picture below to show where it has failed on the rear corners. I saw the trimmer using a heat gun and not sure what glue he used - any advice if anyone else has used the same combination of a fibre glass board and Heritage material and had the same issues before I raise my complaint with the trimmer. Has anyone had this set up for a few years and no failure and if so what glue did they use so I can ask the trimmer to use it. Thanks bit disappointed right now as had to strip a crap load of the car to get the headliner out and spent a fair bit of money - went to a lot of effort to keep the stock look. 😐 Thank You.

    More needed items

    Watching always at least one goes missing ! Aftermarket would be great so you could buy a few spares. The inner door card trim is actually part of the inner window scraper. .
  3. My advice chap is call them direct and ask them a distributor that has one for sale ot indeed they can sell you one direct- also a chance to see there other Cat 1 packages- they also own scorpion. http://toadalarm.com/product-category/car-security/ Also try that ceds alarm In Brum he has a fair few in stock- he dont do mobile fitting though.
  4. To be fair this is only £40 more then what I paid for mine. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOAD-Ai606-THATCHAM-CAT-1-CAR-ALARM-the-Lateset-Toad-Digital-Tilt-Sensor-T-TS1/290482159852?hash=item43a21600ec:g:ovsAAOSw0e9UtZos Ceds in Brum fit them for £120.00
  5. Mate you can still get an AI606 off ebay but the price has doubled in the last 9 months by the looks of it.
  6. Yeah I've seen that one used before 😂 But seriously chaps if you have a well sorted car and spent a lot of time and money on her don't be daft if your selling and give it away for a song. Also to add to the negatives the shiny red decal is a fake MK3 one Sorry Im a f....er but cant help it 😂
  7. Its a hard one as my car was advertised with a Schrick VGi a few years back with less mileage and I knocked some serious figures off (rubbing of the chin and sighing helped ) knowing what money-time-effort goes into a restoration. However I wouldn't be surprised if you purchased this car that you could enjoy it for a couple of years and sell it on for the same price- although that rust could get a hell of a lot worse over the next couple of years. Maybe we need to put ourselves in a present day buyer's shoes to be realistic what 6K can get these days. The car plays a few tricks by having the a newish VR6 red decal- new grill and the fogs which could be a mess covered by yellow protection decal - also has black leather so it can easily catch as seller out with buyer envy - the car photographs well from the front. Would I buy it for 6K - no absolutely not would have to be half that price - but maybe that is not possible anymore unless you had a bit of luck. These cars are been propped up by restored cars no doubt about it.
  8. If you ever needed evidence the prices are rising- at over 6K all ready at auction- advertised as great file of work but looks barely touched to me compared to other members cars on here and also no evidence of engine work or chains- the only thing they have is a clutch 5 years ago ha so scratching the barrel there ! Also high miler with 200K and no rare parts on it. Has a flipping golf gear knob and a kilt as a gaiter- none original sunroof- missing OE air box -riced out parcel shelf- rust on the arches and underbody- sills- tailgate - doors- elephant trunk hanging inside the front grill- bonnet foam dropping off- prehistoric bronze age petrol tanks straps that have been registered with national treasure committee- and that is just what I can see. Ends 15 July. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/auctions/1995-volkswagen-corrado-vr6-w8eQ8x
  9. His a top fitter chap and also expert in soft tops- if you google his phone number you'll see his on many classic car forums .
  10. Hi Dox- His name is Joe and travelled to North Birmingham for me so would have no issues travelling to neighbouring counties. 07711 767972.
  11. The clear versions look alot better
  12. Mate I know a chap in Stoke in trent he is the dog bloox been in the game 40 years and is mobile- all the top body shops use him - fair price as well.
  13. Hi chap can we see some better pictures of your recaro I think they may be the same cloth pattern that came on a MK2 16V golf - I love them ones ! The plastidip has worked a treat on the windscreen trims 😃
  14. All the relays looked pretty good in my Corrado and Golf bar relay 109 and 67 (167) ecu + fuel pump - they were quite burnt on the pins and ran pretty hot so I guess they would of failed sooner or especially been the original. These were the best quality ones I could find from Hella and also been bit geeky numbered them like OE. relay 109 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hella-Fuel-Pump-Relay-109-Golf-Polo-Beetle-Corrado-Caddy-Transporter-TDi-VR6-1-8/233261501681?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 67 (167) relay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Genuine-HELLA-Fuel-Pump-Relay-4RP-008-189-151-Top-German-Quality/202989683466?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Decal numbers 10mm https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10mm-Self-Adhesive-Vinyl-Numbers-Numerals-5-sets-0-9-Just-Peel-Stick/391162093185?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=660499019404&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  15. For sure that is the right thing to do- I will wait in till the economy picks up. Missed off the list its worth using creocote on the bases of the poles.
