    Sounds like the lighter grey is the way to go. Whilst we work on sorting that out, we took the old girl for a local club run last week. We missed the starting time and had to play catch up on the highway. I was well impressed with our first decent run in her, I think she was happy to have the wind in her hair again. Was able to get up to 110k's easily with a bit more in her if we wanted and kept up with the modern cars. Handled like a dream and caught the club run within about 20 mins. The only issue we had was we threw a hubcap but found it on the way back home

    Good to hear that everything is running well:). You are lucky to find hubcap again I've seen a few go by and never to be seen again :eek:or they get clean up by passing traffic:eek:

    Took about 10 mins of a man look for me and about 2 mins for Theresa to spot it safely sitting in a paddock. Luckily we had the window down and I heard it come off so knew roughly where it was. Always good to try and find them, especially seeing they are originals, better than the repo ones apparently.
    I've got a spare one at home too, just in case. It was a good reminder to check the wheel nuts as well :)

    Definitely better chrome than the cheap replacements.
    (Genuine vw brasil ? )

    Not sure but they seem old and polish up nice. Here's my spare one as reference. Glad we found it though, just looked up the prices, the cheap ones are $50 plus

    So we've sourced a lighter grey vinyl flooring. I wasn't too convinced of it to begin with but I think it fits in well now with the overall look.

    Until I can get hold of a piece of the creamy vinyl on the cards I used some of the excess to run up the kick panel to finish it off for now.

    And a floor mat that we picked up cheap from Ishka that we'll use as an outdoor carpet

    Lack of rust would make that an original one
