So a few months back a few of you may have seen a restored mk2 golf shell on eBay, well i was the winner of this shell and have started working on it. ill put some pictures up below of what i bought and what i know about the shell.
As you can see the underside is completly undersealed so if this rusts i give up lol
Along with the shell i bought a vr6 donor car! this cost me £300 and has holes in the chassis leg so thats my excuse to break it and use the engine and interior as its very clean
Where im at
So far the inside of the shell has been primed and painted in the Bright blue metalic LP5U
The paint being applied to the inside.
After this i started to strip apart my 91 8v
which sadly has come to an end, i found holes in the floor the sills, the back strut towers are ready to poke through and there is even a crease and a crack on the inside of the driver side piller.
into the new shell went the rear wiring loom from the fusebox back and the central locking pipes (which im struggling to piece back together), the electric window loom is also in (roughly), the headlining was a straight move from one car to another and we managed it without breaking it so the hard part is done. i also welded in the mk3 rear seat brackets in order to mount my mk3 rear bench and those were painted with the inside. te back of the interior is almost built however i do need a tail gate as my current is rusted pretty badly. i will get some current work photos up soon.
the next thing on my list is to get the engine bay painted and get in about the vr6 and get the pedal box removed and fitted in the new car and get ready
