Yet another thread ruined by photobucket and their feckin decision to block hosting of images on third party sites unless you pay a large ransom each year to them. They have quite literally destroyed countless threads on thousands of forums!!!

I'm interested in seeing the GPvR but all the photos don't seem to work. Is there another way to view it?

They should work now?

Its been a while lads but the work on the car never stops. Ive been quite busy after registering the company but still time to time i was fixing the fto rust issues here and there
Ive replaced both sides sills and all rust i could find inside them, part of the floor drivers side and repaired both chassis legs where the short dog bone are. Atm im painting the rear part of the chassis that ive cleaned to bare metal with epoxy primer and enamel top coat.

Next im upgrading the engine to 16v and turbo to td04 and will respray the front end.

A few recent pics
