    Well, got a deposit down on a red mk1B. It has 84000 miles, black interior, cloth seats, sunroof. The bodywork looks good with no rust. Slight brown coming through the paint on the underside of the floor so that'll be getting cleaned up and undercoated. Valve cover needs repainting. Will probably go for a red wrinkle finish as it looks awesome.

    Looking forward to picking it up. Got plenty of time to think up a name ��

    Welcome to the forums!

    Great news on putting a deposit down! Do you have to travel far for it?

    Looking forward to hearing more.

    Not too far. Any ideas on good basic modifications? I'm thinking 'Jimi throttle bracket' to declutter the engine bay, some mk3 wheels and a short throw shifter. Nothing too crazy as I don't want a rice box but subtle things.

    First - Recommended (for the obvious reason ) just don't buy it from ebay !
    Second - Recommended I've had them fitted for years and still like them also being 15" they increase your tyre choice
    Third - Can't comment as I don't have one (never felt the need)
    Black is not a colour ! .... Its the absence of colour

    Ah so you're Jimi! You still making them? I'd love to buy one from you if possible. I read the page on how it came about, good idea.
