Well I have secured a shared unit and should be taking the old girl off the road in the next couple of weeks. Just got to make a few adjustments in the unit, then I can park it up and the long task ahead of me shall begin.

The first tough choice is what to get to run around in for a year?

I want to say nut and bolt restoration but don't know if I have it in me for that. I will however be doing:
Full respray with necessary repair to rear arches and passenger door etc
Refresh engine; lighten/balance bottom end, possibly new valves and seats
Then there are a lot of little jobs such as slow electric windows, heater fan etc

With regards to a run around ive budgeted 6K so tempted for a pickup truck or an estate car.

Wouldn't spend 6k on a run about, 2k & under buys you a lot in the used car market in the UK if you put in the leg work. Buy something useful or economical pending on what mileage you do.
Whats wrong with you passenger door pete ! if tin worm get a better replacement.

Hope it all runs smoothly Pete !
Have you a place in mind for the respray and body work etc ?
This is something i have had in mind for years and will be saving bits n bobs when i can to eventually do mine so always on the look out for the resto jobs - see what people get done and rough cost / experience of said places...
Keep the updates coming mate.

Cheers for the input guys, I do fancy another pickup truck hence a 6k budget but I should be sensible and buy something cheap.

Mr B I'm replacing the passenger door as it has a dent right at the top. Its been like that since I bought it but the paint wasn't damaged, but now its developing a big patch of rust on the lower front corner. Already have a replacement along with hinges thank to Mr Bob.

Yeah Johnny that's me, got a few ideas to add to the paintwork just to make it a bit different from all the other grey R's, but not decided on what exactly so may have a trial of a few ideas on the bonnet.

Al a friend of my brothers who builds custom beetles/hot rods has a unit so im sharing it with him and my brother. I too have also saved many parts over the years which I cant find half of now; 2 front brake conversions, twin plate clutch, nismo rally flaps, illuminated key surround, wind deflectors the list goes on!

Have considered the diesel Passat estate as a potential run around
