beautiful build! really like the effort you have put into this (kind of reminds me of my mk1 build) I'm intrigued to know why its had 3 resprays..

Cheers ,ate, the reason it went through 3 resprays was simply it just wasn't good enough, with runs, dirt inclusion, filler etc. it wasn't good, it is now though :D

The second half to 2015 has been a slow one in terms of progress. With a new girlfriend and a first house purchase in the sausage machine both spare time and money has diminished some what. As you will see from the images below all is not lost and we are now in the most exciting final few months of the build, the main remaining items going into 2016 will be: Coolant, Wiring, Fuel Lines, Exhaust, Mapping, Interior / Exterior trim and last but not least the wheel choice! 

I hope you like the progress finishing off for 2015...

Just discovered this build mainly because i prefer mk2s, BUT this is absolutely fantastic! a proper build, rust sorted properly, everything new and that engine set up will be a screamer. very envious those AT Power itbs are so much nicer than the ugly old jenvies.

Are these there universal DTH as i cant see them on there website?

Cheers

Adam


Hi buddy, glad you like it, it's all slowly coming together now! With regards to the AT Power throttle bodies they were a direct order for an ABF engine meaning no addition inlet needed to be purchased as it is in essence one unit. Hope this helps! 😎

Cheers,
Matt

Tonight a good friend and I began re-trimming the rear seats starting with the bench cushion with my design...

What are people thoughts as i'm unsure whether to re-trim front seat same as below or to invest in a nice set of buckets?

A few pictures of what was involved.

Looking awesome mate! When you hoping to have it on the road?


Hi Andy! Timing is such a hard thing as I'm going on the basis it'll be done when it's done, it's now three years in but at most will hopefully be a four year build providing I keep throwing money into the pit!
