Welcome to the forum, enjoy the ride.
As you've heard there is a lot of love for the Mk1 here, just don't post pictures including headlights and noone seems to mind. Me and my MK1 feel like we are still just getting to know each other a year on.
Love the "ride it like I stole it!" Jonster
Curious about powder coating as mine also has plenty rust at the welds, whats a ballpark cost for that?
