So I picked up a mk2 from my friend Al last week, since he is leaving to the Netherlands! It came with a heap of spares and stuff which I will list below! Basic Spec: Mk2 Golf GTI 16V Oak Green Widetrack 2.0l ABF fitted with hydro clutch Mk3 Shifter Mk3 fuel tank Fully polybushed. Mk4 rear brakes Spare ABF (will be selling) BBS RX2 Anni wheels (will be selling) Full stainless milltek Spare clean UV interior So based on the spec, you would think we would be winning! But no . The car hasnt been on the road for at least 10 years. Although the engine once ran, it hasnt ran in about 6 years. A rat made its home in it (cue me wearing a mask and gloves to clear out). The boot was where it lived and it was filled with **** :huh. Paint has randomly split from one side if the car (guessing a previous paint job). As it arrived last week: Crying as it left Alz. So this weekend, I spent all day Sunday on it! And I'm chuffed . I stripped the interior or all the rat chewed/**** mk3 interior and carpets and all the spares. Which gave me a nice, clean, rust free floor and boot Continuing on the bodywork theme: Floors - good Sills - good Fuel filler area - rust free Scuttle - rust free Inner scuttle - rust free Battery tray - rust free Rear arches - rust free The worst part is the rear quarter on the driver side. I have ground it back so its nice and silver (although some pitting) and etch primed it for now. Plan/timeline is as follows: From now to New Year - tidy engine bay, service engine with new timing belt etc, new brakes, coilovers New year to March, seal all the arches, clean underside (although it looks super clean as is). March to June - get it painted (full exterior), refit the interior, find nice wheels and drive to the Netherlands to see Al Sorry for the long post, I hope you enjoyed the read.
