only pic i have at the mo, it had been left in a garage for 2 years, but only had an indicated 54k.

looks like quite an honest car paint needs attention in places, small amount of rust on the rear panel underneath the bumper, bits and bats but not too bad, and it needs a a small patch on the drivers side sill. floors and the bulkhead are spotless.

standard cl trim, just taking the seats and the steering wheel out of mine.

engine is kaput when i started it it sounded like bottom end has had it, but its going in the skip anyway.

the wheels are oz saturns but they are going! suppose they dont look too bad but not my thing!

more updates soon. :smiley:

we had to replace a few brakelines and bits but it actually went in easy! apart from 1 bolt on the subframe which we had to get an m12 tap for it was sweet.

loom was ok as well hardly any differences with it it went straight in. (not tried to start it yet though)!

things to do tomorrow:

clocks

exhaust

coolant (whenever)

strip the gti and get it ready for the scrappers

bleed brakes

oil

steering collom needs connecting

oh and i have to take the gti badge off!

so its a busy day for me! :smiley: :smiley:

more updates soon!

Woh!.... welll youve done shed loads.... keep up the good work, shame you didnt take many pics even if it was just for yourself... ive done it a couple of times though, got carried away!...  sometimes just getting stuff done is more important.
