Check the rear light on the offside, it should have a space for the fog lamp, you can connect that up and ditch the bolt on one.

Cracking work Carl as always.

What are you doing with the wheels?
Changing them or painting them (which colour?)

Thank you. Changing the wheels but bloody hard to find any decent ones for sale. After some merc AMG wheels but anything that looks nice and fits would be a bonus

Paint them first Carl, maybe using two colours like the old beetle wheels, or solid colour with a contrast pinstripe just in from the tyre. That way you can spend a bit more time looking for something special.
