24 hours in and it looks a different beast altogether. Had a few hours to spare today so refitted the original front bumper. Bought a second hand rear bumper in silver as well as a bonnet so they went on too:cool:

till a long way to go and a lot of money to spend but at least its not as embarasing now

Jobs still to do

Sort rust
replace exhaust manifold
possibly replace camshaft and followers
replace intercooler
service

Going to be a long haul!!

Out of curiosity, how good was the paint match on the s/h panels?

Having to condider a couple of doors replacement and reflex is a notoriously difficult paint to match.

Incidentally, mines also a silver 07 4mo do you realise how few were made before 2010 theyre quite rare.

They look pretty good. Mine has had a respray but not sure how long ago. The paint match is certainly good enough T:

Mine too, had a blow over at ome point, better than average missed it buying the van. Trouble is could make paint match on s/h panels worse.

Considering a reaspray in the future though possibly colour change to VW Fjord blue.

Pay a tenner a year to become a 'paid up member' then you get to edit your own posts ,more photo storage i believe and post in the classified section.

Failing that facebook marketplace is good (and free) .

Trouble with facebook is that a few days after you post something it has sunk without trace. At least by posting on a forum someone else can find information years after it was posted.

Forums used to be a mix of social and technical information. With facbook taking much of the social (and antisocial :D ) away, it has reduced the footfall on forums. Hopefully, they will survive with the enthusiasm of the likes of the OP and all the old hands on here.

and anyway.....facebook isn’t free - it takes a piece of your soul every time you use it....leave it to the narcissists and sycophants.

Great progress on the van!
