I hope you have labeled everything very carefully. Modern cars are so much hard to strip and rebuild compared to simpler older cars. So many things with clips that snap, items glued on etc.

 

Over the weekend I took a peak under the door frame rubber on the drivers side on my GTI. Under the thick glue/sealer found some of the 'roof to door-frame' joint that the rubber clips onto rotted away. Luckily not too bad as it would be a pain to stitch in new metal.

bought this the other day .. another single wiper conversion .. bought mainly for the scuttle panel which has had the drivers side wiper hole (which goes unused after the conversion) smoothed and looks a cracking job and cant hurt to have a spare single wiper conversion i suppose .. the collection of parts is evergrowing

You didn't mention the new mudflaps ;) Have you found a set for the front that fit correctly around the skirts? Have you got a set of headlight protectors? I was offered some, genuine Ford, but couldn't see the point...for the price I could buy several good s/h headlights !

They fit great had a set on before but wanted new for when I put her back together and headlight protectors would be useless for my morettes
