madmanluke's supercharged mk2 VR
« on: 31 March 2010, 17:06 »
Thought Id put a post up here. - I get lots of PM's regarding my car so i thought the advice is best spread about publicly rather than privatley!
My build thread so far is here http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=132647.0

If you have any questions about it feel free to ask away in here. Il start updating this thread more and leave the build thread alone for more major updates.

How it used to stand just over 5 months or so ago:




And how it now sits:




There is a lot covered in my other thread about how to get the standard clocks working with the vr, shallow sumping, hocky pucking, flocking, banging, breaking, abusing and a whole load of other 'ing's but if you have any specific questions about any of it shoot away

This sound lovely driving around Bromley.
Golf MK3 1.8 auto and I didn't pay a grand for the "priveledge" :grin:, auto windows all round and a AC. Oh and I've got a luggage net you pricks!

Does that make my willy look bigger?

Oh yeah it's called Helda or something....

Cheers for the comments guys. I hadnt checked back as i thought I had clicked the notify new replies button. obviously not!

A few little updates. Im trying to save the large stuff for my other build thread.

Passed a milestone about a week ago. Have done another 500 since....


I also got a set of magnacor leads. Ive been having a tiny issue where sometimes on start up once its warm, the car wont give out any power at all and then kick back into life again. I done these as my first step to cure the problem. It doesnt seem to have done much so I am assuming its going to be the legendary blue temp sender that needs replacing.
 


I then got a little fruity with some wrinkle paint :D Going to re-do them. It was majorly rushed it its my daily. I have since found out it needs at least 48 hours to dry and wrinkle properly, so maybe some time in the summer il give it another go and do it properly .It just looks a little messy at the moment.





Wheels are on their way also :) Not Th Lines unfortunately. I need the funds for other stuff.
