    Unhappy The reason i'm not wasting any more time when it comes to the Mk1......

    Some of you may already know from my build thread but after being in a crash at a show on a parade lap where our beloved sapph got written off, and still recovering from the injuries i just decided to get someone else to finish the conversion for me.

    Here's the sapph...

    Before....








    2 hours later...


    After.....






    Absolutely broke my heart

    Yeah so i decided i wasnt going to waste any more time with the Golf and just get it done so I can use and enjoy it. (Plus, i cant actually work on it anyway at the moment because of my back grrrr!!)

    So, this time next month Elvis will be at SCP (Staffordshire Car Painters on Newstead) to have all his bodywork done, all new panels etc and then from there its going to PSI Tuning to get them to finish the conversion so I can get him on the road and enjoy using it, after what happened to the Sapph I decided life's too short!

    Thanks guys. Yeah the Sapph was a beauty. Karl had spent 8 years and 30k+ getting it to how he wanted it. He finally got it perfect about 4 months before it got written off.

    George..... if you look carefully at the impact pic, you can see the guy who hit us has something in his hand, he was filming himself going round the track and booted it one just before he hit us.
