Mk6 College blue , refurb time !

New seats fitted, old news but still proud of em, they are from a 1990 minibus, got a squeezey thing for lumbar :lol: , i took them out to fit the tourneo carpet & re-sprayed the seat framework , looks a lot smarter.

Gonna do it same colour, because my mate ( who's the one doing the lions share of the paint) doesn't like doing colour changes, but roof will be black ala Nitroman

Found a hole under the corner trim !

Front of the rear arches welded up nice but Some delays as sill on n/s was too rusty, ordered a new one ...

Found some tourneo rear doors at 200 locally so gonna check em out , i wanted glass in rears anyway and a glass kit is 130 and my doors need new rubbers and have a few dents here and there plus the tourneo doors look better with wiper and heating ! :)
