Default IGeL's Mk2 Golf Gti 16V From Portugal

Well I'm going to start my story here from the biggining till now.

My dad used to have 2 MkI Golf's
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..





















url=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/198/dsc3372x.jpg/][/url]









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..














Mutch sanding!!



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.










Dry P1200



Watter sanding P1200



Tamiya Coarse..





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..

Even if it's damaged and stuff, you just don't find untouched 16V MKs that easyly anymore, even in Germany. So it's great to see that one coming back to life!
Hopfeully you'll have more luck than the previous owner

Thanks man
Not every 16V comes with a digifiz, most of the cars that came with a digifiz are special edt's
Like, High Tech.. and a couple more that i dont remember the names..
I wish my one came with a digifiz, its now obsolete and rare...

I love it.
Now a little bit of Portuguese :
Pá, admiro-te por estares a restaurar um carro cujo custo de manutenção não seja o melhor, mas sinceramente, o que conta é a sensação a conduzir e o gosto pessoal. Não desistas!

Don't Give up in this Plz!

Im Not Giving Up my friend
And Thanks for the comment !!
Portuguese: Eu adoro o carro, e sempre quiz ter um desde muito novo agora que o consegui é dar o devido valor e cuidados claro que o custo de manutenção com toda a certeza não é o mais agradável de todo, a maioria das peças são todas mais caras para este modelo em particular bolas
Um abraço.

Thanks guys

G535..
Well i really wanted to reach the 200bhp it will not be possible with out a turbo, but i really want to have it with no help of a turbo, i guess with the Cams and all of the fine tune could reach the 180 or 190bhp MAX.
My other goal agter having the engine complete and dyno'd i'll start looking for a ABF Block to rebore to 2.2L or 2.1L

Today i got this from carbonMods
Very good quality !!

Thanks man, Lowtecs are awesome man it gives a really good handling, its not that harsh on confort as Raceland or Roccor and the Quality is a bit better, still it can be a bit bumpy on highways at highspeed's, I really like them, I'll soon change to H&R or LowTec's 9.3 Race.

Well got some more updates on the mirrors, its a really slow process and exhausting, everything done by hand (my fingers hurt) but still is rewarding at the end.
One is done next one still needing the same process









Need's more polish/wax i don't know if i'll be giving it a clear coat of varnish still need to decide.
Thats it for now

And this was the result after a week of bench work for this, i'll say it got on a 97.5% of product satisfaction.
Still i managed to get a new pair to make some new ones later on.







While waiting for the new parts to arrive so the car could run..
This is it for now.
Thanks for watching.
