  1. A4 B6 salvage

    whats the instant garage like with the mk2 in it? does is condensate? just wondering if there any good as I've been thinking of getting one.
  2. Time for an update I shall keep it short and sweet with minimal text as lets face it, everyone just looks at the pictures, Graphics where finished, wheels were fitted, votex splitter was fitted, cage was made and fitted, bucket seats were fitted along with some harnesses. Made it to edition38 and low collective shows. Im off to live in france for the winter. The cars going into storage (along with all the others) I will work on it next year or maybe 2018 if i go travelling after. Who knows. Future plans as follows. VR6 swap while I build a forged 600bhp r32 lump Carbon skinned votex kit Cage extended and welded in to tie in with struts etc Tubular front end Turbo fans Pictures Thanks for the pictures taken by all them people with them proper cameras.

  3. Mk2's golf 1.8t looms

    So far I have removed the following Complete engine with gearbox Downpipe with lamba sensors Ecu and 2 looms that plug into the ecu Fuel pump Throttle pedal and it wiring to the engine bay loom Gear linkage and cables etc Intercooler Air box Clutch pedal and master cylinder with hose to the slave cylinder I've also go the clocks and key but il be running standard mk2's clocks so am I correct in thinking they won't be needed once I've got a in my opinion defeat done on the ecu? Would I need anything else or can the car be crushed now? Thanks
  4. Mk2's golf 1.8t looms

    Just picked up a 1.8t dbw engine from a vrs Octavia skoda with box etc. I have the ecu and the 2 looms that plug into the ecu but will I also need any of the loom from under the dash that controls the fans and runs to the battery and has the diagnostic port on? I'm running standard mk2's clocks with in my opinion defeat.
  5. il just leave this here. some of you know. Its been a long time coming, these ideas and plans were hatched way back in july 2015 and I'm now finally making them happen. really need to get the trim shine out. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr
  6. MkTwo-Tone Jetta

    painted the roof yet?
  7. Fair bit has happened to this, slowly over the last year. Taken it out for storage and got it ready for its mot which should happen next week, got just a few little bits to do. I found some period strato 15x7 4x100 alloys thats are from west germany which i had powder coated and fitted with new 165-50 tyres and also purchased some raised digit number plates and fitted some small bumpers. Just need to raise the front a few mm and fit the inner arch liners. After the mot its back to the bodyshop for a few little bits to be corrected. Also had the standard steel wheels powder coated just need to fit tyres then i may put those on and put it back to standard, just wish I didn't have the littlerear bumper bracket holes welded up when it was sprayed so i could put the plastic bumpers back on. Few pictures from yesterday. Im also considering selling it for some reason so i may make a for sale advert and see what interest i get.

  8. Well its not ugly in my opinion, Ive always loved the shape of a MK1 Jetta. Its just like as child would draw, a generic box. Ive owned a couple of MK1 Jetta's previously but sold them on, I've regretted selling the last one ever since, which was some 4-5 years ago now. Anyway I spotted one for sale fairly local but it was missing an engine, its listed on here in fact, but a quick browse of eBay to see if any others were available threw this up. Newly listed and at what seemed a bargain price even if the shel was rotten i could have made my money back in parts. A few emails and text were send back and forth and a price was agreed, last saturday i set of to collect it. 1983 MK1 Jetta GL 1.5 4 speed manual 4dr with the full brown interior and described as running but been sat off the road since 2012 but starts and runs. Here are a few pictures from the advert. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Looks awful but I noticed the wings and front valance seemed solid, seems the previous owner has fitted new wings and the front valance is solid, its also has some rear arches and filler neck panel by the looks of it, not the best job but its solid. It runs but idle's at around 2000rpm. Best part was it came with the original wheels and wheel trims, original Metal Porsche centre caps, spare grill and grill badge, indicators, weber carb fitted, series 1 steering wheels, original stereo and all the trim and bumpers which is great as i thought i would need to source all those again. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Ive since got it home and had a good look about, it seems solid enough, the floor plan especially which is good, the interior is in very good condition too just dirty, generally a very good car by the looks of it. At home on the drive way and a nice find in the ash tray. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Spent a few hours on it once i got it home. Fitted the front bumper again and fitted bumper brackets that where missing, changed the awful dice door pins to standard ones and took all the stickers off, gave it a quick hoover and gave the engine a few vital checks, I've ordered new plugs,coil and leads too, dizzy cap and rotor arm look like they have recently been replaced. Dropped the fuse box as found the headlight wiring butchered, wipers not working and the dash lights not working either and found heap of electrical tape and crimps with wiring for atleast 2 radios. Thats all bee removed now and I'm slowly tracing wires and repairing there so its like factory again. Need to find a rare bumper iron as the old one is rusted away but the plastic bumper its self isn't to bad. Plans are to just get it on the road then begin prepping to paint it back its original colour which is golfd and then refurbish the wheels as they seem to suit it, the engine will be removed after and then the bay painted and a td lump or ti lump of some sort fitted. Few pics of the progress. Looking a lot better in my opinion. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr
  9. Mk1 golf gti.

    Looking forward to this. I know it's going to be good. Well the paint work will be for sure
  10. Air is on Swapped the front 205-45 tyres for 195-40 tyres. Fitted some air ducts and black indicators. Trial fitted the votex front splitter. Picked up some seats, started building up the wheels too.

  11. Spent a few hours on it at the weekend and striped the interior and fitted the air ride management all neatly under the carpets and made a temp wooden floor in the boot. this will all change once the rear seats are removed and I'm running the new seats etc but for a temp job its nice and tidy and functional. Unfortunately i couldn't fit the struts as I have 3/8 fittings on the struts and i ordered a 1/4 management by accident so waiting to get some new fittings. fingers crossed tomorrow at the local hydraulic place. Here are a few pics. Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr and the finished boot. Its nothing special by the standard of some cars but im pleased with it and its only temp so next build will have a lot more effort put in but think I need another tank and compressor.

  12. Also if anyone ever finds any 3dr brown door cards point them in my direction is pretty much the only thing i need and i have all the parts i need.
  13. Just so this thread doesn't die like the car currently is I promise to work on it one day Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr
  14. As a few have asked a rear end shot plus a few others. Keep meaning to give it a good clean and get the dslr out, maybe some time this week. I think the rear tyres are 225/40's and the fronts are 205/45's but there to big I think il be getting some 205/40's for the front soon but not for a while as I've purchased some seats plus i also have the other wheels Planning to try make a start on the air install this week then fingers crossed I can run the wheels spaced out the same or less if there have a small strut body, as it sits to high on the coilers due to the spring seat fouling the rim if i lower is anymore. I need some more smoked indicators too as i broke the clips on mine Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr Untitled by max mummery, on Flickr
