Well not too much to tell about the golf at the moment as the immobiliser is still stuck on and the car is going nowhere. After talking to a few companies i have decided to have the current alarm/immobiliser reemoved and a brand new top spec Toad fitted. this should hopefuly finally cure the problem of the thing not starting!!

other than that i have fitted the Carbon DTM Cup mirrors although they might be coming off again as i am not sure about them.  i have also fitted a Mountney steering wheel which is a big improvement over the origional!! Also got some Sparco 3 point harnesses for my seats from ebay for ?40 which i thought was a bargain. The interior is soon to be stripped in readiness for my ICE install.I will be making some fibreglass kickwell speaker builds this weekend which will be good fun.

I will post some pictures of all this at the weekend when i get some time.

ok well quite a lot has gone on with the beast since i last posted. ive been busy installing the ice and various new parts. here are a load of pics to show exactly what ive been up to.

ok well this isnt exactly anything great but it shows just how much dust the golf has on it  :grin:



these are of the mdf baffles i made for my fibreglass kickwell builds which i need to finish  :smiley:



heres me stripping the interior and making a start on mdf`in the rear, as there are no seats i can get a lot of ICE in  :laugh: and yes i know that the floor pan id red :( you can blame the previous owner for only doing half the spray job. at least its hidden  :grin:

and here is the ICE thats going in and some shots of my car cos i was bored :)



will post some more pics (hopefully better ones) when i get the chance to take some.

thanks for looking. bunter

wheeled the golf out for the first time in 2 years today and cleaned off all the sh!t that was on it and i think its scrubbed up well. got a few more bits to do to it before its complete but they should all be done by next weekend so il be able to go cruisin \o/

(the suspension doesnt normally sit that high its just that i changed the wheels over and it has to settle again)
