  2. MT Cars Bangor

    mt cars was on the clandyboye road in bangor also was a ford dealership owned by two guys named Mellon and Thompson , think they lost vw in the early 80's and carried on selling ford into the 90's the only archive pictures you might come by would be the bangor spectator

  5. Lowering caddy van

    no problem will do, im a little old and my teeth are falling out naturally and i dont want to help them along hence the springs
  6. Lowering caddy van

    i would say another 20 mm at the back i will know soon enough, to be honest sitting on the slope on my driveway doesn't do it any favors and i never have anything heavy in the back

  12. Mk2 golf sunroof seal

    you would be amazed at how much water gets through the door membrane and if your looking a dry water tight car i would suggest you change them , any heavy duty plastic will do some spray glue and away you go shouldn't take anymore than half hour per side
  13. Mk2 golf sunroof seal

    It's not hard to do once the panel is out, but just make sure when removing the panel that the adjusting screws dont move what makes you think that's where your water leak is coming from? Where is your carpet wet? things to look at for water ingress in a mk2 sunroof drain holes are clear and outside the body of the car, had one once the rear tubes had shrunk and all the water was pouring into the quarter panels door membranes are in good shape tail light seals lastly holes in scuttle panel under the windscreen rubber
