    I'll get the car home on Saturday morning and take a look them. I'm in Sydney for work right now which is slowing me down a bit right now.

    The shouldn't bee too much I can't source here.

    There's rust in all the usual MK1 places up front but the back seems pretty clean so far.

    I will potentially need......
    A better tailgate if one appears magically.
    Fuel tank
    Fuel filler and cap
    Floor sections for the bed.
    hood liner bows and clips (although I should be able to adapt sedan ones if I need to.

    Up front I was planning on buying new repair sections for
    pillars
    sills floor pans
    etc if I need them.

    I've got a few US contacts too and I'll start reaching out once I've worked up the shopping list.

    Got it home OK.

    There's a lot of rust up front, I think I'll just buy in the rust repair panels from heritage and replace as much as I can.



    The bed is wavy but not rusty.



    Bonus doors in the back.



    Uncracked dash! It's one of the hard plastic ones.

    No door on glovebox.

    Just be aware Pete that the inner guards are double skinned similar to the convertable. Could be a real PITA to get at all the rot...
    Lots of MK 1 Scirocco's...

    If it aint a MK 1 then it must be a donor car ??

    Cheers,
    Grant...

    Yep, I'm pricing out repairs panels for everything forward of the windscreen.. I think I'll have to pull it all apart.

    VW Heritage, but they're a bit pricey for a wall decoration.
