What I wouldn't give to have a nice garage to work in! Mine is stuck outside at the moment, would love somewhere proper and dry to keep it.

 

Got a MK5 on the go at the moment. Don't think there's actually any pictures on here actually. Will put a progress thread up sometime, should be pretty special when it's done I hope.
