Cheers guys

Good news though, the car is booked into the body shop for thursday the 1st of october 2009

I have parts going to the powdercoaters next tuesday so i can rebuild the front end.

The engine bay is fully stripped of wax and most seam sealer, and has a fresh coat of acid8 etch primer.

Picked up more bits from VW too, word of warning, if anyone is thinking of changing the gearbox end crank seal you will be shocked. over 85 from the stealers. so i bought one

Completely stripped the starter motor down and prepped the metal work for paint, renewed the brushes, painted the metal work, left to dry, re assembled. and it looks amazing. pics soon.

Need help too

any idea where i can get a mk2 bonded windscreen from

cheers y'all

Not a good evening

found this



but managed to finish the engine bay



also picked these up from the blasters





and my home recon'd starter motor



Also had the guy thats painting the car round to have a proper look at the motor, pretty sure he can blow my socks off with the end result, sounds reassuring.

off to VW agian tomorrow to pick up VR6 sachs clutch, brand new door seals, HT lead guide tube, and all manner of parts to rebuild the gear selector tower. think i need therepy.

thanks for looking

cheers everyone

Well i had a good day yesterday.

Before my car came off the road to be stripped down a problem developed with the ABS system, like it wern't working.

I stripped it down to find the cable feeding the motor on the pump had become broken from the terminal of the motor. Some solder and a test across the terminals from a battery and it worked. yeehaa

next i saved myself a few quid by rebuilding the clutch master cylinder, found nothing wrong at all, so painted, lubed and rebuilt. all ok.

I managed to deliver all the parts i had sandblasted to the powdercoaters about 11am. Then to my surprise the guy called me at 5pm to say all my stuff was ready to pick up, said its because he new i only had one day off, sweet.





Front chassis rebuild on the cards soon.

not to fussed about the dirt, i love cleaning motors

its more the 250+bhp in the wet im worried about lol

Thanks guys

this is not what you want your crank pulley to look like.



had to grind down the pulley bolt to get the crank off, i hate working on 20 year old engines.

but it did come off



got the powersteering rack refurbed and put back on the car, stripped the sound deadening and stuff from the bonnet, put the panels on the front of the car and bolted some wheels on. then......




and cut my windscreen out, it took me over and hour and a half.



After i got it back in the garage i jacked the back up and chucked some axle stands under it, unbolted the rear bumper and started to cry, why why why did i decide it would be a good idea to poke my car

this sucks





guess more welding will take place

on another note, dont forget to prop the fuel tank before unbolting the straps

bump on the head

cheers for looking

just a small progress update

The damage to the sill and rear end, definately had some previous accident damage in the faterland.





found some wiring issues between the body and boot lid



I also decided what i will trim the roof lining and A,B,C pillars in, and this is a comparison shot.



After shots of fully trimmed trim parts.





Stripped down the rad fan and painted, cleaned and assembled. Bolted together with stainless nyloc nuts and washers.





O and the car put back on all four wheels







And then........................











she's gone to paint

should have her back in a couple of months

till next time peeps
