My Mk1 build
« on: 02 October 2016, 18:43 »
Hey guys this is my build, I will let the picture do the talking. (some pics are not in order but you get the idea)

Pick up the car, it has been sitting near my dad work for ages so my dad ask if the owner would like to sale it.*He said YES!!!!!:cool:


A friend picked it up and took it to our work.


Started stripping it down and having a good look whats needed.






Had the car on ramp and see how bad it was underneath, Amazing not much!!!





Wings off two holes on OSF side




Cut bit of the rot see the inner sill.




Order boot full of parts from Classic VW, VW heritage and Ebay.


Took the paint of front and rear panel to see what *the mater was like under it.

Took the paint off the sills.





Heritage Wings Prep and hole welded up.








Cut the rot out time*:lol:Mark out the rot area and cut








Not as bad as I thought




Brushed rust treatment, and sheet it up over night (Doors and tailgate off)




See it working sort off:)


Tailgate checked.



Had to get a drivers door, one I got was from Spain rust free but loads of small dents!!! Paint all off then with use of Evercoat Ultra light skim.


thanks guys more of this week progress

Door was all finished and applied Slick Sand



last bit of welding on both arch's


move the car across the workshop



Attacked the back panel







rather change the whole panel just the area that was rotten.

With all the welding done and light filer work so time for some slick sand on the body!








All the Slick sand blocked down time for tinted primer.







Time to block the primer down.
