Update - 13/04/2017
Been a while since this has been updated so thought I would take a few photos yesterday.
One of the many niggly bits on my to do list was the fuel flap being stuck open. This was down to the fuel flap solenoid that is tucked away behind the headlining area in the boot area of the car.
Sounds silly but now having a locked fuel flap with a switch that works, helps me on the way to feel like I'm not shedding this golf.
Next on my to do list. Tie Rods, Track Rod Ends & Drop Links.
I need to get some anti roll bar bushes but I will be going poly for these.
My silent coat sound deadening, hopefully more than enough for the front doors ready for the speakers to go in, along with my ebay roller special. I've had this sitting around for way too long, being very lazy.
Photo of the car itself. Not that it looks great by any means but pictures, especially edited, is hard to see defects. Unfortunately for me I see these every day. Now the weather is improving and before it gets to hot outdoors I am going to give the car a clean and decon and get my DA out finally.
Need some external trims, oh and a windscreen.
The wheels in all their glory.
This N/S/F wheel is pitted with brake dust still. Just one of those things I've not attacked since I lost a bit of love for the car.
I'm sure with this bodywork I will be able to get some nice 50/50's.
Any advice on this roof dent and hows best to get this repaired please let me know.
I believe this is some sort of glue on the door?
One of many scratches on the car.
Dirt inside both of the headlights. Going to source some anniversary lights.
Still need some work on the interior but it's coming along.
Will source a second 3 spoke and send it off for trimming I think. This wheel has seen better days.
This tank is going to be replaced when I change the thermostat and housing along with a new coolant temp sensor.
Then I will have to follow suit and replace the windscreen wash bottle also.
The longer I own the car, the more I find I need to spend and I don't want it to feel like a money pit. I have been considering selling due to the size but I don't want to spend to much on a car. But most cars in this price region, especially petrol turbo is going to need money spent.
I will carry on repairing and hopefully improve the body of the car and see how I feel.
