    GTI Stage 3
  1. Back in a Mk3 Golf!

    Set about getting the MOT sorted this week but needed to sort a few things. Headlights wernt coming on so had to go to a spark to sort it. My tailgate never came with bulb holders so took some from a vento I have for bits and used the ones from it and although they look ok they don't quite fit perfect so il be on the lookout for some from the states. The airbag light was on but it just cleared no issues I then needed a few more wheel bolts as I didn't have enough from when I did the 4 stud to 5 stud conversion. Finally the exhaust was split from the cat to the midbox but all good now. Brought it to MOT yesterday morning and FAILED no big issue as it was only a brake hose and the rear hub was lose. Got bored so only armed with 2 jacks and 1 axle stand as I'd left them at my house I got the coilovers in! I didn't even have wd40 at hand but it went relatively smoothly but trying to set the car down using just a jack was deadly when I had all for corners done. It's starting to take shape now To do list: Fit red GTI badges and red pin stripe. Fit red seat belts. Get MOT retest sorted. The tailgate button isn't great so need to fit a boot popper switch. Wire in 3rd brake light in spoiler. Sort out height after MOT and get wheel alignment done. Split the front US indicators and swap clear lense for orange. Get a new exhaust. Bond side skirts on as they are just screwed on atm. New fuel tank straps as they look horendous. Service. Sort central locking out as it's faulty. Radio only works through one dash speaker. Still a good bit of work to be done before I can daily it over the summer but il get there. I recently acquired some anniversary seat material and I plan to retrim the centres of my CC seats in it. Want them to look something like this:

    Thanks Bob, I already have a set of your all reds just need to get it through MOT before I stick them on

    It's been a long long time coming and now she's home! Really chuffed with how it turned out definitely worth the wait! Still alot more changes to come. Dual chambers are in and CL taillights so I can get it through MOT. Need to order new clips for the door mouldings too so I can get them on. The plan is to get it MOTd next week then I'm going to get the coilovers and wheels on. The boot lock needs attention and number plate bulbs wired in too. I want to run amber indicators in the front bumper but the Euro ones don't fit in the US bumper so I'm going to try and split the lense and get the orange ones in. Lower bumper ducts don't fit either so OEM grills it is. Interior had 18 months of dust and crap in it so it got a good scrub and I also changed the pedals.

    Some pics of the front end....grill is only set on and car still needs polished etc but you get the idea it's starting to come together

    Some more pics, front end pretty much ready to bolt on

    He's not a bad lad and I've been throwing him loads of other stuff to paint (I'm a car dealer) so it's my own fault too lol
  8. Back in a Mk3 Golf!

    Been a while from I updated this but finally have progress on the paint! Shell has been primed and painted now just waiting on the bootlid bumpers bonnet and grill and it's time to get it on the road! Wheels refurbished diamond cut and laquered... Shell and wings painted:
  9. Back in a Mk3 Golf!

    No updates my painter promises he will do it during the Christmas period but I'm not holding my breath! Only it's in 100 pieces in his place I'd have taken it away already it's been there almost a year!
  10. My NewHolland... Blue MK3 Golf Concept

    The mk3 habit is hard to kick, love a jazz blue one too! Is the previous owner selling the air setup? I might be tempted

  13. MK1 leon and A3 double din set up

    Expect to pay an absolute fortune for what it is....its about £400-500 just for the centre console setup and then you need an actual headunit lol they came in toledo V5s with sat nav i know of a guy selling a whole car for £700 it has nav leather and years mot.....better to buy it and strip the console and sell on IMO or if you get lucky and find one in a breakers yard. Heres a link for one on ebay and trust me its the right price always wanted one in my Cupra R but the price put me right off lol
  14. Mk3 Golf Cab #nohomo

    This makes me want a cabby but i only like them with the top down and then that makes ya look a bit of a beirut lol
  15. Back in a Mk3 Golf!

    Still no update on the paint but more purchases as always! Originally had wanted to run the keskins but i wanted something a bit less common (well here in N. Ireland) so when stefan was talking about selling his corvette wheels and i just had to buy them, should tie in well with the whole US theme. Just have to get some adapters sorted now and sell the Merc ones that came with it. Also made a buy for the future incase i plan to do anything with the interior for a retrim, some colour concept seats bolsters are probably the best ive seen to be original and the yellow would be getting changed anyway, or a friend might swap his black CC seats for them wel see what happens lol
