I also finally did this which I had been wanting to do for a long time (don't laugh) but I had the OG plate from many years ago when the car was in CA. This picture from the second post in the thread is 10-11 years old.
Picked up another frame (I get them at a local thrift store for like $4) and mounted it up finally. Perfect for the shop. Recently talked to the owner from 2003 again and he is hopefully going to send me some pictures of when the car was rally crossed in CA. I can only hope...
NOS all black OEM Cabrio carpet and matching all black OEM mats from Europe. very fortunate I got my hands on this stuff for the build. Still have another set of mats on the way. Not sure if those are as black as these are. This carpet is not your standard grayish MK3 carpet.
