    B7 A4. MK2 GTI. 16v Coupe
  1. MK2 GTI Restoration

    Thanks ger16v & Oldskoolfool ( good luck with mot). Im after something that’ll keep the car on the road for another 10 years or so. The plan would be to keep indoors if got restored. 8k a serious number Oldskoolfool... but appreciate your point. I know the car inside out, but I’m not that handy mechanically or welding etc. Had always read that body work folks like to do their own prep. Suppose what I’m hoping for is some workshop / restorer to come see the motor and we can talk numbers. Thanks for the encouragement. Like us all, I just want to keep old cars on the road.
  2. Hello. I have an ‘89 8v MK2 golf GTI I’d like to restore. Currently various shades of red/pink/white. Few rust spots in usual places, but car runs and was through mot in past 3/4 years after some mechanical restoration. I’ve had the car for 18 years so it’s make my mind up time. Outdoor storage isn’t helping. Has anyone any advice / tips / indicative costing (appreciate this can vary widely) for a decent restoration. I'm in Antrim/ Ballymena area. Thanks. Enjoyed Titanic Dubs, but noted not too many MK2’s around these days.....
  3. Paul - Thanks Great price and in stock. Hoping to start fitting this weekend Thanks again to you & Conor
