Welcome to TLF Chris. :welcome:

I think there will probably be people near you that would give advice. Wait and see.

Any other questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)

Welcome to the forums Chris.

Plenty of folk on here with G esprits who have done or are doing restorations from rolling to all out crazy ocd restorations.:)

They are also very friendly and have a lot of knowledge build up between them and always keen to help out on advice on fellow restorers.:)

Start a project thread in the G projects section and get some pictures up.!

Hi Welcome to the forum.

I done this on my 1985 Turbo. I think Giorgio67 started his S2 resto about the same time I did. Mine took about 6 years which was finished about 3 years ago...Giorgio is still going! 

Plenty of help and advice to be found on this forum but ultimately you will be alone in the dark and cold under your car for hours on end when friends and family are up the pub or watching tv! Thats not to say its not worth the sacrifice though.

Good luck

Get stuck in and ask any questions in the G Section as you go. I've had my S2 for nearly 20 years and I'm still getting answers from the bottomless pool of knowledge on this awesome forum!
