    Pearl Grey MK2 GTI 20v OEM+

    i know! i couldn't even see it on google! its a g60 front one, its the correct part number. i have a feeling that the gearbox might have had a hairline fracture in it and its just been exposed by a non standard bolt, perhaps over tightened...and then driving on it

    Golf mk2 R36

    Second and last fitment for I let paint the front, inner rear fenders and the bottom. For now I want making fit the downpipe/frontpipe and some things like the radiator Color is still ugly, but it's an very good basic and wont't rust until the car will go to the paintshop

    Pearl Grey MK2 GTI 20v OEM+

    New bearing arrived for the alternator and i have replaced that, just waiting on some fresh screws to secure the housing together as the old ones had soft ends. New Aux belt pulley arrived and put on the car so that should not make noise like it used to. Refurbished metal coolant pipe added back onto the car with new silicon o-ring New upper (head) coolant outlet added with new seal Then i saw this: looks like the gearbox is 100% coming out .. time to replace and get one painted up

    T5 Day/Surf/Festival van

    Today was dry and not cold. (Not warm... but not cold), so i thought it about time to have a crack at fitting the fridge. From a bit of online research i found that to fit my CRX50 the panel at the back of the cabinet would need cut out. Original door off.

Plans now are to get the graffiti artist back to spray the skull from the door over the top of the fridge.

    Vag Com - ABS & Airbag Query

    Ok cheers, will give it a bash when I can.
  14. Typical mugly car - looks like it's on air when it's not! Don't know what it was with those 90's alpine units. They always sounded miles better than any other brand.
  15. hope to see this at early edition buddy

    Danz - Black mk4 GT TDi

    Good man. Likewise, I sold it to a younger boy who had it as his first car.. Did a reg check a while back and its SORN so I think that spells the end. Shame. You tried that? Reading through our buildthreads makes me feel all nostalgic! That's a cracking E92.. bet it has bags of torque too. I've had a couple since the MK4 days, I went to a MK5 R32, then C63, then a Gen 2 Porsche Panamera 4S, and now I'm in a new E63s which is here to stay. changing cars is an expensive hobby! I don't attend meets and things anymore but when I remember I get over to the pistonheads southwales meets on the last sunday of every month over in Swansea.. some cracking local cars there. Theres usually a good run or two that goes with it which is nice to blow the cobwebs out, especially nice in the summer when the route is through Brecon/Builth Wells etc. You should clear a sunday morn and come down to one.
  18. Paintwork looked terrible under street light so busted out the DA and went over most of the panels. Came out well but just a shame there’s other defects in every panel which can’t be fixed by the machine polisher Also recently bagged a fully working vintage Alpine CD player circa 1994/95. Love the clean look of these from that era

    Danz - Black mk4 GT TDi

    How’s it going man, of course I remember you dude. I moved on from Treforest a while back. Always regretted selling the mk4, didn’t have time to maintain it or take it to shows. Wish I’d stored it for a while. I’ve gone through a good few cars since and currently have a BMW E92 325d M-Sport with a few changes and a nice map. It goes well. I’ll try and post a pic. How’s things with you? What you driving these days?

    Mk2 2.1 TSR ABF Track Toy

    I whipped the rear coilovers off the weekend just gone for a tidy up. They looked quite bad and I was fully prepared to replace them but they tidied up a treat and with a bit of heat from a blow torch the locking collars span off no bother. Fronts are coming off next weekend for the same treatment, I'll have to raise the car slightly too for track use as it's currently in poser mode. The handbrake and brake conversion is all done, I just need to take delivery of some 15mm spacers then I'll be able to put the wheels back on and adjust the handbrake tension. I really want it to be strong enough to hold the car still while I spin the front wheels up prior to a track run. Hopefully the Mk4's will do the job.

    Pearl Grey MK2 GTI 20v OEM+

    well i want some work done like getting the engine bay painted up and looking fresh, so it might be a good time to change engine. might still be a 1.8t but i'd like to have the engine and box out to get fully stripped, dipped, painted and built back up again
