  1. Euan's Mk2 Gti 8v

    Hi Guys, I've read a lot of readers rides threads on here before and attended the show a few times and the time has finally come when I have my own ride to document! It's a 1989 8v GTI that me and my old man picked up last year in Edinburgh. It's done 100k miles and been in storage for the past 11 years. My old man was always into the mk2 GTI's when he was younger and so when I finished uni we decided to go halfers on one. By chance we got one almost the exact same spec as his favourite he used to own (only one letter difference in the number plate!). I'm blessed to have a good mate Ross who is super skilled when it comes to paintwork and am fairly mechanically minded myself, my dad has worked on a lot of rally cars over the years so between us we hope to do all the work on the car ourselves. For now the plan is as follows: Strip the car back to a bare shell and complete a full respray (pearl grey .. maybe?) rebuild with new subframe assembly, coilovers, polybush etc Restore some BBS RM's we picked up cheap in pretty bad nick modernise interior with some mk5 GTI seats, a dash re-trim and audio upgrades The car has come to us with a new brake assembly and exhaust and appears to be in good condition. We're also going to film some videos for youtube of the restoration so I'll post some links to that in here once we get going properly. For now here are some pictures of the mk2 and the wheels we've got. Thanks for taking a look! Euan
  2. So ive decided to make a build thread on my other golf. (my long term project is a white 20vt, haven't touched it in ages) but anyway, this is my royal blue mk2 golf, i originally brought it to 20v instead but as its a 1 owner full service history car so ive been fighting that thought. For now, its staying a 1.6 driver as hard as that is. im just planning on cleaning it up outside and doing a few bits to make it a nice car to drive as i use is daily. I drove it completely standard for about a week, worst week of my life, it felt like a boat. I have all my spares from my white project so i used the already used budgets on this one, not ideal but i plan on getting better coilovers when they become a priority. I also had the g60's sitting around, so it would have been a shame to leave them off the car and they would do until i got my rs's sorted out. The body work of the car isn't to clean, there is peel on the roof, top of the door and wing but i honestly dont mind, it will be sorted out when it can, but for now its more than good enough. its not a show car but it will be clean one day.
  3. Hello all that are interested in the wonderful machine I have which is a mk2 caddy sdi with a whopping 63bhp standard so more likely around 30bhp now, I'm actually sure I could push it faster then it accelerates haha. I bought this van in October 2017 as a cheap run around as I have 2 other cars(well technically 1 and a half at the min) being an audi a3 tfsi which was my daily till I bought the van and a mk3 golf which is stripped down to not a lot and in the very slow process of being sorted but anyway thought I'd share some of the bits I have done and will do in the future to the caddy so far haven't done all that much to the old girl just a machine Polish fitted a new front splitter and a new steering wheel but will have some more plans for the old girl in the near future. Here is a few pics for now though
  4. Hi all, I know this is a common subject, but I just wanted to confirm a few things. Ive a mk2 golf driver with manual steering and the engine will be coming out soon, so I thought I'd upgrade the steering to a power rack while I'm at it. Now I could obviously obtain all the mk2 parts (rack, track rod ends, uj, pump, brackets etc) from a power assisted car and fit those. However, the parts are a bit tricky to get hold of in a bulk deal. So I was thinking, presumably I could use a mk3 golf power rack with the mk3 uj and then if I got a mk3 alternator with brackets and the pump etc, I could just bolt all that to my block and run a mk3 set up with a serpentine belt? I guess I'd have to change the pulleys too, like the water pump, balancer. Any help would be great! cheers
  5. 1987 mk2 golf, AGU, K300 running on emerald. Im a newbie (first post after lurking for some time) so please try help a brother out. Don't even know if i have put this in the right place? Anyway, Issues around the dash/ignition/earthing, help would be very much appreciated. Very occasionally the car wont start. I believe the fuel pump starts to prime but when you turn the key, nothing happens. The blue main beam light on the dash will sometimes light up instead of the car starting when you turn the key. When the car is started it drives perfect every time but i have intermittent problems with warning lights. I get the coolant temp light flashing/on/flickering, oil light flashing/on/flickering, main beam light flashing/on/flickering and the rev counter goes crazy up and down even with the car in gear at a steady speed. This has been happening for about a month now but it doesn't happen every time i drive the car. One day it will all be happening, and the next i will have no problems whatsoever. When the fan kicks in the revs drop dramatically and the car wants to stall itself. Or when i use main beams, wipers, headlights, radio, windows, fog lights together (larger electrical load) the car also struggles with this. This has been happening since just before christmas when i had the map done for my k300 upgrades. Could this all be related to one single earthing issue or a couple of different issues? If this is an earthing issue, which earths and where should be checked? or is it just a case of checking all of them? Thanks to anybody able to give any suggestions.
  6. I'm re-writing this thread from the beginning due fraudobucket. I've been putting this off for months haha. I bought this car in April 2016. It is my third Mk2 but my first GTI. My first was a 1.8 auto which i adored and is what made me fall in love with mk2's. I have always been into older cars as far back as i can remember, The youngest car i've ever owned was '94 Mk3 Golf. After searching the usual places (ebay, gumtree etc) i noticed many 8 valves for sale but not many 16 valves and the valver was the one i wanted so when one came up close by I had to take a look, and it was hiding a secret. ca191754c16c65335f61ec815e492494 by Philip Coakley, on Flickr cc8f3d11fc9bbdd10b8b5586aca9c2fb by Philip Coakley, on Flickr Looks ok from a far distance.. no hang on it doesn't due to them AWFUL black L.E.D indicators, the P.O also had a name for her (Ellen) obvious to see why and the name stuck. 8a0a805618b597b99d5a7a22109c155d by Philip Coakley, on Flickr 0dcbf297ec13dfc9f77a4ed23f336c04 by Philip Coakley, on Flickr c8fca313b1fcec119d6ca46672930177 by Philip Coakley, on Flickr Other issues also include a very rhythmic rattle from the engine once you hit 5000 revs, which for the 16v engine (KR) is where you hit your power really. The steering wheel is wayyy too big, I found out from the mk2 owners club that its actually a mk1 golf campaign. It was a struggle to find the brake pedal sometimes as your lower thighs rub against the bottom of the wheel. Also it's got a manual rack which makes it even harder to drive safely in. Not good at all. a059c79f471735e99b588d0d3cc5258d by Philip Coakley, on Flickr When I bought the car it had a rattle at the top end, and then eventually it heard a knock at the bottom end and then several knocks until it had more knocks than a van full of jehova's witnesses. I've covered 3500 miles in 6 months. Its now on 151,000 miles. I got it for £900 with an mot would you believe. Did manage to have some fun though. Camping in the summer. Didn't do much apart from fit period correct small bumpers as when I bought it it had a big bumper conversion which were held on with cable ties! And also give it a complete service. Much better. Had a very scary moment on the M6 on the way upto the lakes for a weekend with the girlfriend. Heater matrix blew up whilst doing around 80, ass was twitching like a rabbits nose, extremely hot water just peppered us both through the vents. Managed to pull over without crashing.... Just. What hurt more was forking out £140 to the RAC since i didnt have breakdown cover. Only needed a basic set of tools and a length of hose and i could of avoided all that, ah well. Getting to more recently. Started looking for places to restore her which is something I had planned from the beginning, planned on doing some of the work myself but lack of time, space and general expertise on such a build made me realise that I was delusional. Took her to Deutsch Doctors down in Stoke (I'm in St Helens) who were very good and nice guys too. They had a hoard of mk1's and mk2's It was the daily until October and in that time the only breakdown was the heater matrix, one thing i did replace: I spy a crack! I used heat resistant table top protector, was a bit fiddly but it did the job with some spray on adhesive. I didnt know much about Deutche Doctors apart they were on Car S.O.S. The only issue i found was distance. I looked for somewhere local and i found a small company called Quest Auto Body limited and was quite blown away by there work. Here are some examples. They had space for one more car, very good set of guys who love what they do. That was it, Mind made up. Work will commence beginning of December so can't wait to see the first steps. Meanwhile I originally wanted the current KR to be rebuilt but something came up in the form of this... An ABF from a car who's owner i've followed for some time on CGTI. rye1991 is his username on there i'm unsure if he's got a thread on here. I followed his build long before he removed the abf to make way for a vr6 so i've seen the car running and know its been looked after, also detailed remarkably well too with plenty of polished and painted bits as well as samco hoses. I am retaining the original k-jet system which is essential for me as i want it to look OEM and retain her original character. I did want to rebuild the KR but cost to benefit proved that it just wasn't worth it, it was a slightly bitter sweet pill to swallow but i doubt i'll complain when i feel that extra torque which the KR lacks low down in the rev range. This is us taking delivery of the ABF and dropping it at Quest. And also a rare early 7 slat grill with an even rarer early 16v badge so i was made up with that. Oh yes the hidden secret and the sole reason why i bought such a half dissolved lemon... the eagle eyed of you might have spotted the original colour. Monza Blue which just happened to be my favourite colour on a mk2. Didnt even know it was hiding it under that abysmal respray. Which brings me more or less up-to-date. Work has commenced and i will be going up in a week to see whats been happening. They've took plenty of pictures of every process so i'm looking forward to seeing them more than christmas morning.
  7. Hi im Luke, people call me Pezz or Pezzer, im 19 years old and i have just bought my first mk2 golf as a restoration project, this is also my first post on e38 I havnt yet decided how far or how much extensive work i will be putting into the car but i look forward to the journey ahead of me.
  8. Alright guys, I have had this car for a few years and its also been a project since that time. As most of us, i thought id have this done within a year but I'm still no where near. Main reason is i keep changing my mind. So its a mk2 scala, bought it off a friend of a friend. He previous used it as a track car, i'll be using it for both. This is my 5th or 6th mk2 scirocco. I currently have a corrado g60 (my 6th corrado) so i am a coupe guy! Anyway the build. Plan originally was to just put mk1 golf arches on and a few other bits. I completed both rear arches with matching inner. However it looked a bit normal and not the overall impact I wanted. So here comes phase 2!, bolt on arches Starting to make the plug out of metal. Making the final bit to the arch Then offered it up to the car again And the final measurement is an added 10 cm. This isn't the only mod going on, The rear end has been cut out and smoothed. This is to give it a full smooth back similar to a few old porches, I won't be running bumpers. There will be roof smoothing, bay, cage and other bits along the way. I'll show this at a future update. Liam
  9. Mk 2 Wash/Wipe problem

    I have a Mk2 Golf. Every time I use the windscreen washer it blows the fuse. The wipers themselves work OK, it is just the washer that has an issue. The last garage I used have bodged up the earth which I don't think has helped, but does anyone have any experience or ideas about where to look for the fault? Thanks in advance Jesse Konstam
  10. Hello people, Got an issue with the one of the bolts on my Mk2 VR: It looks as if the thread has given way causing the crossmember to drop on one side. The car has a full Corrado 2.9 VR6 conversion. I was wondering whether where that bolt goes into is a part of the frame of the car or a part of the sub frame and replaceable? If not, and it is a part of the body, what would be the best course of action to fix it and solve the issue? Here's another picture: Thanks in advance. Gurpal
  11. Drum to disc conversion - mk2

    Lads, I've an '89 mk2 GL that I'm looking to overhaul the rear brakes on over the summer before done some mods'. From reading up I understand that I can just swap the rear beam from a mk3 to get the the more reliable calipers and that the only change will be a +12.5mm gain in rear track width (no bad thing for some later mods'. I think i can always upgrade from here to mk4 calipers by purchasing a mk3 > mk4 kit - i could do with the wider track from my bigger plan. Hence; the new beam. My question is; does this beam need to come from a GTI or VR6 to have the brake compensator valve required to stop the rears locking before the fronts meaning i just need to find and raid a breaker? Also, would a beam from a GTI come with a rear anti roll bar? Lastly I assume that If i order some new poly' bushes for a mk3 beam they'll fit onto the MK2 (from what I've read they can be different diameters). Cheers,
  12. I will be looking to get my Mk2 golf on the road within the next few weeks. It was 1.6 ryder and has had a 1.8 16v KR engine put on, with a set of bike carbs. Is this something that could be insure by HIC? Thanks

  14. Golf MK1/2 engine swap

    Hi, I'm prepared to be shot down, but here goes.. I have very little car mechanical experience bar the general maintenance side of things. I happen to be a qualified mechanical engineer with honours in applied science with 9 years within he aerospce industry working with rolls royce jet engines. This makes me feel like a div due to the questions i want to seek advice on. In summary, i want to buy a mk2 or 1 golf and put a less economical, thirsty beast of an engine in it. Now, i first of all would like to know what the restrictions are here. For instance, i work away in Wiltshire a lot and nearby in Melksham there is a 3.7 V8 quattro audi for sale @ £700. Its an auto, but i imagine i could source a manual box. Or could I? if i bought a golf MK2 and this car a s a donor, is it even possible to fit the engine and whatever else needs transplanting? That was probably the silly part. Any advice on something decent as a project would be greatly appreciated. As a note, i'm also very lucky to be married to a lass whos brother is a very good mechanic so i would be paying him to carry out most of the work. I don't see him often so can't really ask his opinion but i'd leave the car with him to work on in his leisure. Just want some sound advice on where to start Cheers!
  15. I've put a KR block on GSXR bike carbs in my 1.6 ryder. So am using everything from the 1.6 except the ignition controller loom (16v). Its turning over (quite slowly) on the starter. But not producing a spark, there is power getting to the coil and to the distributer. Are these the only wires that need to be in the coil? I have a spare red wire on the controller loom and black wire of the 1.6 look like they should be connected. Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Is it that the battery/starter isn't producing enough power to the 16v block? Battery was bought new around 1month before I took it off the road. Any help would be great, Thanks!
  16. Been a while since I've done a build thread on any of my cars so heres a little update First of there was passat b5 Then my b5.5 Got written off twice in one year Then my pimp violet vento My 3.5 cabby on Lincoln town car wheels Swapped it for a lupo on air Sold that to buy my most favourite car I've ever owned. My mk2 golf, 1.9tdi conversion and only 45k on the shell and in the only colour I wanted. So here it is when I got her
  17. MK2 Golf Ryder

    Hi So i've owned a few mk2's now but never seem to keep them long enough to need a build thread. Since i've had this a few months now I thought i'd start one. The car was a low miles 1.6 Ryder with 2 previous owners, it was bought with the intention of just cleaning it up and keeping it all original. (with the exception of lowering it) Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr However after giving it a service and what seemed to be its first cambelt, I split the carb flange and that opened up many more problems which led it to not running right. So long story short it was doing like 14mpg and I was bored of trying to find the solution. So I have decided if its going to bankrupt me when I drive it, I may as well have fun with it. So I purchased a KR and some GSXR750 carbs to put in over the Christmas break. Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Where it has been the last few weeks Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Now just waiting for the fuel pump that managed to get lost in the post Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Untitled by Mike Brisbourne, on Flickr Thats where I am up to just waiting for a fuel pump to arrive, then it will be time to see if this thing will start.
  18. Here's a few pics of my mk2 polo bready, owned the car 1 year now & I love it, done some necessary mods (lowered 90ish front 60mm back) on refurbed snowflakes painted gold, it's a 1.0 with 69k
  19. My First Mk2 Golf

    So last week I picked up my first Mk2 Golf 1.3 as a little project car Few things to do on it, first things first it will need a good clean and polish
  20. 085 gearbox bracket.

    Hello! Currently im in the process of swapping my 4 speedgear box, to a five speed gearbox, in my 1.3 golf. I know that you need to change the mount at the back of the gear box, but i cannot find what to, does anyone know the part number or have a picture of one?
  21. k-Jet fuel system

    i know this question has probably been asked 100 times but it kills my brain going through every forum post i find. i have a 1.8 8v gti engine sitting at home but it didnt come with any of the fuel pump assembily. was wondering what else you could use for example a differnt fuel pump and run a fuel pressure regulator or wouldnt this be effective? any help would be highly appreciated.
  22. Hi guys, Just got my first mk2 16v gti. It's a 1989 with a KR, all standard under the hood. It was kind of a barn find-not used for 5 years or so. It had been running by the previous owner each month till about a year ago when it stopped starting. I got a really good price for her and bought it with this in mind. The starting is really puzzling me and I wonder if it is fuel pump related: When ever the battery is connected the pump at the back of the car runs all the time the battery is connected, regardless of key on. Pulling the pump relay has no effect and the only way to stop it is to pull its fuse. I would have thought that the pump should never run without a key and even if it did it would only to build pressure before it tripped? Has anyone got any ideas or tips on this? All help appreciated
  23. Pearl Grey B*****D

    Easy now Picked this up a few weeks ago and I've been debating weather to start a build thread. Sat here bored out my mind so thought sod it lets get involved. Here's a bit of a back story Previous job required me to do a lot of miles so I had a mk5 gt170 which I had the guys at plush automotive deck out with some serious air ride goodies from accuair, namely elevel with performance struts twin compressors and all the extras you could want. Looked like this Had it for a few years and even though it drove really nice and never gave me any bother it was boring as hell. Fast forward to the present and I have a new job which is near enough on my doorstep, within a week of starting I was on the lookout for something a bit more interesting. Was after something pre 90s leaning more towards a mk1. Little did I know since I last owned one the prices have gone up quite a bit. So I narrowed my sights on a mk2 gti 16v. Many an hour spent on the toilet, during break times, in bed or being shouted at by the Mrs looking for something I liked the look of. Well this appeared on gumtree local to me, now I'm not a huge fan of gumtree as it's just full of tat or scams. Had a few sentences about the car nothing exciting other than the fact it said 1989 grey mk2 gti 16v with a 20vt. So I though hello cheeky what's your name, put in a call to the owner who gave me a bit more info and I liked the sound of it so popped over that evening and had a look. Spec is as follows 1989 gti 16v Pearl grey Electric mirrors and windows Recaros from mk3 gti Agu with a ko3s Fmic Remap to around 210 (no paperwork) Standard clocks Standard ecu Hydrolic clutch Came with quite a bit of history including original purchase order Here's how she looked when I saw her Well I got all excited as we took her out for a drive, it was a real nice drive and pulled really well. After a bit of haggling we agreed on a price and I picked it up the following week. For that entire week leading up to picking it up I was like a kid waiting to see Santa, instantly checking parts for sale threads and eBay for choice bits and the usual mods people make. The day rolled round to pick it up I rushed home from work and badgered my mrs to drop me round, after handing over the money, signing the v5 and receiving the keys from the now previous owner I got to finally drive my latest car. The drive home was amazing grinned like the Cheshire Cat all the way home, filled her up with vpower on the way back. Few more snaps Took her out again that same day maybe 2 hours after buying her on the way to the gym she just cut out on an island, wouldn't turn over at all, completely dead. Needless to say I was severely pissed off, after some help from 2 of Staffordshire polices finest officers I got it off the island and into a lay by. tried again to start it up and nothing. Well I got on the phone to the previous owner who was shocked at the situation as it was driving fine when we went out in it and offered any assistance he could give. In the end I got it towed home to where it still sits. A few friends have had a look and with a lot of help from rubjonny on here and clubgti it's an issue revolving around the fuel pump fuel pump relay. Spoke to vagtronics who's loom it was and they were kind enough to send me over their wiring diagrams for the conversion loom. So I've been collecting parts to see if replacing the inline pump would help. Here's what I've got so far Bosch 044 pump and carrier Mk3 fuel filter and carrier Mk1 cabby swirl pot New fuel lines and fittings Planning to fit all this when it stops raining sometime this week, justified it by realising is have to replace the 16v fuel pump if I went ko4 anyway so fingers crossed it works. As the mk5 is now provisionally sold I need this on the road as it will be my daily for a while, at least until we move house. If there's anything you could think it would be let me know Cheers for looking
  24. Hi Guys, Due to my commute being cut to a 2 minute drive, I saw no need for the fuel economy of the Fabia Vrs anymore and wanted something to work on as an ongoing project. I sold the Fabia and started looking for something a bit more 'old school', I wanted to stay in the VAG family as I've always had them and parts are always easily available and they're not exactly over complicated, especially the older cars. I decided on a MK2 Golf as parts are cheap, plentiful and depreciation seems to have curbed on them which is always good. I initially saw a black MK2 which looked great but was like a sieve underneath, I could see why he wanted rid of it before the MOT was due. I then came across a MK2 16v in Oak Green that was fairly local to me, it was advertised as having a fault with fuelling. After a thorough check and some negotiating I came away with a car and a boot full of spares. After ploughing all the gravel up the drive I gave it a thorough look over and made a detailed list of what needs doing, it's a bit excessive as you can see: When searching through the car's history I found a receipt for an engine rebuild for £3k in 2004 so it's had some love in the past. Saves me a job as it's quite a detailed rebuild. The engine bay looks reasonably tidy after a quick clean up but it will be a work in progress: First things first though, I need to lose the wheels as they are awful, so I have some Calibre Dub wheels to go on it this weekend. Not the most expensive wheel out there but they look a dam site better than the 14" painted steels. The more I drive it the more small problems I find, half the reason I bought it to be honest. The front engine hydro mount is totally gone, not a massive job but there's loads of engine movement. Next was an intermittent starting issue: The KR 16v engine has a fuel accumulator which holds fuel pressure constant in the fuel lines to stop it evaporating in the lines. I presumed this as faulty so had a look under the car to find it had been bodged with around 20 cable ties. At the same time I noticed the rubber fuel lines that connect the fuel pump to the main feed lines were badly perished and one had started to split. Definitely not a good thing if they start leaking petrol under your car next to a hot exhaust I had some spare fuel hose so changed them whilst fixing the accumulator into place without the aid of cable ties! Changed the fuel filter whilst I was there too. I have two major problems that have now been bumped up the priority list: One of my wheels is buckled/out of balance. Rear passenger coilover has popped a seal therefore no damping at all.
  25. 1.3 Powerrrrrr

    Hi guys! My name's Murray, and I though I'd share my first car with you! As you may have guessed it's a 1.3 Mk2 golf, but not just any 1.3 mk2 golf might I add. Bar most of the mechanics, not a whole lot is original, so without further ado, here is a list and some poor quality photos: It had, when I bought it: G60 arches, tinted windows, big bumpers, GTI spec front window with the slight green tint, new side windows, GTI spec seats, home made door cards( which look all right to be honest but I'll change them one day) Black hand painted bonnet, and hand painted wheels, Finned front fender, new headliner, de-badged grill, PECO after market exhaust ( despite first impressions, probably my favourite bit ) Smoothed rear with no panel gaps on the sides,no badge, no way to open the boot from the outside and a rear wiper delete, which is more annoying than anything else to be honest. Chrome door handles which, despite being cheap from Ebay, I quite like, and aftermarket dash and front speakers, I believe that's it, ill inform you some more if I think of anything else, enough reading, here are some photos! Day one: ( early october 2014 ) You'll be glad to know the window tints were swiftly removed with the help of a steam cleaner and no social life for a weekend Then these arrived: Do wish I went for the 16 inch ones but being 100 pounds cheaper, and on a budget, I thought these would look all right! Transformed the look of the car in my opinion, but they needed to be bigger or have a thinner profile tire, and have a greater offset (please excuse my terminology if it's wrong ) And the really tacky halfords seatbelt pad.... comfy though! And here's the money shot: Woahhhhhh 56 horses of pure adrenaline. That said i love the look of this style of engine it just needs a complete revamp.And the lunch box was my solution to a severe design flaw/leak which led to a soggy carpet and a puddle in the foam bit under the passengers side dash. Oh i forgot to mention, really weird electronics on the car, some switches have been placed under the dash which are connected to nothing, my horn doesn't work, window washer switch was moved to a new location, but now doesn't work at all, dodgy radio connection when some CD's are played, a radio that doesn't work unless you want to listen to Lincs FM, and the cabin light likes to turn on by itself. But anyway, more photos! Some random loose and dodgy connections to illustrate the above, there's more where they came from to :/ Batman was soon placed in: Retrimmed the A and B pillars in budget material, as they were originally white. Had to redo this recently as i did such a poor job the first time. But hopefully you get the idea: Christmas soon came along, so as did a momo steering wheel, and some slightly tacky sparco interior spruce ups, i have plans for these, don't doubt my tastes just yet! As did a blue grill stripe, in the form of a sticker. Which I didn't particularly care for, but i do like the blue..... I went on it's first photo shoot this day, so here are the rest: Now some of you may be thinking: woah, that's quite the arch gap. Which would be true, you could probably fit your face through it, so i brought some coilovers: AP ones to be precise. It then went on its second photo shoot, and despite it being cut slightly short by a rather scary and angry homless guy, some decent photos were made, so here they are: OOooh a new grill: And yeah I'm missing the bottom trim :/ And that's how it stands at the moment! I'm going to get some painting done when the weather brightens up a bit, and hopefully get rid of that bonnet, blue pinstripe around the grill, and some other touch ups. Updates might not be to quick for this, unless it breaks, however some wheel spacers would be nice, and some cross hair lights..mmmm! So yeah! There's my golf!
