Sorry haven't got round to pictures yet laptop done an update last week now my phone won't sync to it :headbanging anyway got all the interior stripped out over the weekend because it was really damp inside and I'm pleased to say the floors are perfect it looks like as far as I can tell other than it's had a small accident repair behind the passenger door which hasn't been done to the best standard it's in excellent condition. will try again to get pictures sorted tonight

Bit of deja-vu there - ISTR you rocked up to Trent's Rugby yard for some zed rear suspension parts while a bunch of us were stripping an identical GTi!
You seem to have options!

Not in bad shape considering how long it's been off road.

Did you find any money whilst stripping out the interior :laughing2
