Just a few more pics of porn  :grin:



your subframe retaining bolts were present then....

mine werent  :shocked:

if i'd have removed the front bumper on its own, the subframe would have dropped out!  :laugh:


Chris I would love to drop a VR into a MK2 mate, just couldn't find funds to do it. I'm jealous of yours fella!
My Goal was to get back behind a nice OEM 16ver, nothing fancy just rock solid and back to basics.


best way, it's less hassle, although it seems the fusebox fairys have attacked yours too...  :lipsrsealed:


I don't think a semi will give the same results

Haa yeah just abit I had various electrical items removed the most annoying one was the screen heated washers due to the chalk bonnet they ripped out the pipes and electrics luckily I managed to get a whole new loom to the fuse box. also rewire the central locking the wires were shocking..... I don't mind the CE2 its pretty mapped out.
Well the subframe on mine was ok, but some bolts were not right the history of the car was the PAS rack had been changed out in 2006 got the paper work and I think the nuts holding the sub frame were pretty rounded.
They have been changed, but I've got polybushes to go into the new wishbones.
I'm not doing that untill I've dropped all brake and suspension out for complete overhalin.

Yeah if I leave it long enough it will piss me off enough to fix it!  :grin:

Haaaa an't that the truth!

Haven't done much parts still coming and will crack on with the wheel arch that was broken!

Pipes all nice and cleaned!

I'm just not sure about the zorst its like a cannon ready to shoot would love a Remus twin

You can see the RAD its not very clean did acid clean it up before this picture but want a £200 Alu twin core one!

The fan shroud needs stripping but I though get it through the MOT first then cosmetically sort the odd bits.
This is the replacement Starter motor on exchange £50 not bad as its very very clean and new compared to my old one!

Yeah my rad was the same...... due to constraints I couldn't go for some fancy alu thing but standard replacements are cheap as chips... got mine for about £40 delivered... already managed to give it a couple of dings though.   :angry:

Ah yes, that exhaust is a bit cannon like if you you don't like that sort of thing, mind you I can't talk!....  See if someone wants to do a swap maybe?
