Well I'm going to start my story here from the biggining till now.
My dad used to have 2 MkI Golf
5 Door LS
3 Door GTI 8V
Allways had a special peculiar interest for VW's or VAG autos.
Since my 14 i dreamed with a car, at my 16 i got a XR2 Ford
i unsembled it in a try of egine overhaul
till now i still have parts do build up and the engine doesnt start.. Ignition problems.. anyway
I allways been in a persuit of a MkII Golf
GTI 16V i couldnt find a decent one for 4 years till i got the money to buy a decent one i was 21.
Story of the car till now:
The car suffered the attempet of theft (Tried to take the car 3 Times) and since they couldnt take the car because the car had a fuel pump failure the car wouldn´t start.
What where their conclusion? Vandalize the car, took the stereo, the unit, pulled the headliner down, scratched the paint, fk#d up the boot lock, fk#d up the lower section of the dash, since they tryed to hotwire it.
And i was lucky still, that they didnt took the car on a trailer, they do that or they did before on that zone. The previous owner repainted, and fixed the car, and they did it again, this more 3 times till the previous owner quit on the car and just left it stopped for a year till he sold it to me..
(Pictures sent to me during the negotiation process)
Day 2 of the mounth Jully 2011
I was receiving the car at my garage, and some more parts arrived aswell.
Still looking for most of the parts to fit my "Digifiz" on the car
Started the Clean up (interior)
Fabricating the blank part for the radion slot, since i hadnt the money to buy one..
Then i moved to the dash, took the cluster off, cause it had no Lights working NON !!
No e-brake light, no no lights at all.
After that i had a major problem that cost me 600€ and the risk of the car incinerate it self.
The Fuel Pump that was suppose to be new, was leaking like a shower on summer, plus that the car wont start when its cold, the intake gasket is fkd the valve cover gasket is also fkd, the iginition lead are also fkd, the gearbox selector i dont know the name in english for the parts i bought, but i bought new stuff for it cause the reverse was not working and the exhaust holding rubbers didnt exist exept 1, it was being held by the headers and 1 almost breaking. 600€ after i got it fixed and got a new Bosh highpressure pump.
Then i found this Raid Steering wheel that was inserted on a wood frame, made by my dad, that was used on one of his MkI's
Needs some restauration also.
Then after i got a bit afraid of the fuel liking problem and the risk of get fire on my ass, i bought an extinguisher
And started for the first time on body restauration..
Started the rear quarter panel from the right side..
1St time doing this ever !
Bought some more goodies on the way..
Primmer on the suker..
BAck Pain !!!
Goin for the roof as well baby steps
Red tint on the tailights..
Tryed to get the bumper a bit more straight very dificult, im buying a new one anytime soon for both ends.
Mounted the new ones with the old ones frame, here people love to nick the stereo..
(I dont like the speakers on the parcel tray totally **** it, but the holes where already there
Then everything was ok not alright only ok for 2 days..
Till i do something again.
Watter sanding P1200
The best paint work on the car
Still need to polish this..
Well there are still some things to be improved yet being resolved..
All of this was made in 2 weeks time.. kinda slow but yeah, the car was on the shop to fix the other stuff during one week, and since i received the car i was with no problems during 1 week, then was the chaos, and now moving towards the good direction.
And with a Student Budget things move really slow
This is how it rests now
Thanks for watching..
