  1. Cheers for the help and comments all 👍👍 When i receive them I'll probably test fit anyway so I'll make a judgement on what they look like on the car. I'd like them to look reasonably standard fit, hence the black paint comment, in my head they would stand out a mile.....
  2. Cheers, thats a fair point and makes more sense. Do you know if its the 70 litre tank or 55 for a late rado? Seems to be 2 versions available. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vr6-GOLF-CORRADO-MIRROR-STAINLESS-STEEL-GOLF-TANK-STRAPS-70-litre/233515822387?hash=item365ea0ad33:g:srIAAOxy9tpSA0~7 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK2-MK3-GOLF-CORRADO-MIRROR-STAINLESS-STEEL-GOLF-TANK-STRAPS-55-litre/233545576683?hash=item366066b0eb:g:fk0AAOxy7S5SA0~-
  3. Any VR6 fuel tank experts here? Herritage are offering this at £22 + free delivery which really isn't bad! https://www.heritagepartscentre.com/uk/1H0201650-fuel-tank-strap-kit.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw95D0BRBFEiwAcO1KDJxlb3rPb4MTBadayBZUXa6wYcmQmlHF2u-E4XZo5XaCjBeBsItyPRoCAfAQAvD_BwE But whilst the description states this: To fit Mk2 Golf 84-92 Excluding Syncro model Mk2 Jetta 84-92 Mk3 Golf 92-98 Excluding estate Corrado 89-91 with a 55 Litre Tank Lower down the page it states: FOR VEHICLES Product Vehicle Years Jetta 1984 - 1992 Golf Mk2 1984 - 1992 Golf Mk3 1992 - 1998 Corrado 1989 - 1995 Vento 1992 - 1998 So i'm a bit confused! I know ebay offer stainless ones but i'm not sure how i feel about having something blingy on show, think i'd rather they be black.
  4. Never heard of it, might give it a go now 😀😀😀
  5. One of my favourite wheels on a rado, looks perfect
  6. Just up the road here too 👍 from hednesford so not far away at all.
  7. I went for every year as it's just up the road but I probably haven't been for 5 years. I got really fed up with the show tbh as it turned into who can get the biggest Bentley rims on an old dub. I'd probably give it another go next year though if it's got a better balance of cars.
  8. Does anyone know what standard size vr rear discs are? Looking at these which state to fit 226x10mm but I have no clue if that's what I have? https://www.vwheritage.com/corrado/corrado-brakes/rear-brake-calipers-discs-pads/rear-discs/backing-plates#page=1&top=934&
  9. Cheers mate, Greg seemed to think my car was a lot easier than most because it was flat black rather than metallic so I assume this will play in your favour too!
  10. Don't know how far you are away from here mate but this is where I got mine resprayed last year: http://greghowell.co.uk/ Although he's a Porsche specialist he's knows his way around a Rado and they were recommended to me by Vince at Stealth. You saw my car recently so at least you've seen an example of his work and I paid less than what you've been quoted!
  11. Can't believe I keep missing this thread, I'll take a set for a late VR if you have one.
  12. Great to see! I don't understand some of the hate the corrado gets sometimes though, even from VW guys. No one is saying the corrado is the best car ever made but some people seem determined to knock it back
  13. Have you tried gtechniq c4 permanent trim restorer? Cracking stuff!
