  3. Busted budget Mk1

    Right, ive been meaning to put a build up on here for a while now. i bought this car of someone on here for a reasonable 350 sheets. not to bad So she started life off looking a bit like this Rusty wasnt the word really. she was full of holes and rust got it home on the road. she looked a bit sorry for her self so i started looking for holes. found a few Filled the holes in and hey presto. Then started sanding down and primering Decided to smooth out my rear wiper hole, i didnt want a rubber bung so out comes the filler after that i went a bit crazy!!! Some idiot decided to reverse into my wing!!! it needed replacing anyway so i said call it 50 quid an i wont report ya. After struggling with the wing my jack decided to give up an drop just after i replaced the wing, the tips of my steelies got caught in there Filling more holes in How she stands at the moment!! Doing this on a budget but seriously contemplating giving up. Ive had enough of everything going wrong with it!!!

  11. mk2 valver exhaust

    vw want 550+ brand new and i mean the box on the end of the downpipe, as you have the 2 pipes, they would need to be put into one and then onto the mid section

  13. VR6

    has he checked all the iginition over, i know its kinda stupid question to ask, could be something to do with the iginition or fueling, has your friend maybe knocked the coil pack or leads. i will have to speak to my mate tomorrow as he had a problem with his vr,
  14. Very strange problem on my 1300 mk2 golf

    check the rubber hosing that goes from the carb to the back of the airbox, i think thats right. there is usually a hose thats about 10mm thick that is prone to splitting, you might want to check them, if not i might be able to come up next weekend and have a look for you if you want, just pm me if you want me to pop up, ill give you a contact number.
