  1. Yes wires eill be broke inside the rubber between the door & car,very common fault in the 6n2. Its prob been repaired before at some stage and wires have broke again.
  2. Try the anti-roll brackets and bushes. Was a common enough fault on mk4 Golfs.
  3. The owner of the mk6 is on Reallymeansounds forum.
  4. Hi people, Ive a thread up on my Mk5 GTI & Polo TDI but thought this deserved its own thread! Ive been on the lookout for a project car for me and the ole man to do when we get the free time in work so started looking a while back but didnt find many VW's that caught my eye. Then by chance we stumbled upon this,its an original 1986 Polo Coupe S. Its totally standard and never been messed with and bonus is it only has 66k miles on it. It needs a drivers wing and bonnet and roof painted but the chassis etc is like new! It had been sitting for afew years so needs a good tidy but the car is unreal for being 30years old! It has a mighty 1.3 with a 4 speed box and a huge 55bhp!!!! Afew photos of the day it arrived!
  5. The cleaning/polishing has started to get the Coupe ready for Titanic Dubs. Looking forward to it as itll only be the 3rd show ive had the Polo at this year. It will be going into hibernation at end of next week once i get my car cover sorted!
  6. With the weather being so good i got the Polo out of the garage to give it a quick clean then took it for a nice drive. Took the dog with me and went for a walk so got afew photos as its first time ive had it out since getting my plate on! Have to say the wee car is some craic lol..
  7. The plate is not exactly to the month for my car but the price i got the plate for i had to take it! The number is LJI 9876. Have to say it suits the car so well and im over the moon with it! Just need to make it to another few shows/meets as i missed castlewellan because we were in Kinsale at a wedding. So all my spending is done for this year,just fueling it and try use it as much as possible!
  8. Finally got a period number for it and got it made up in the right font! The DVLA messed me about so much with trying to get my original plate back on that i just went and bought a plate. Will hopefully get the car cleaned today after work and il upload some photos up! Also got a set of "1986" show plates made up the way VW displayed some cars back in the day!
  9. Im sure il see you at a show over the summer! Need to get a wee nosey at your VR anyway!!
  10. Jim i got the hubcaps from TPS. But i went for the hubcaps off a caddy van as they come with the nut covers as part of the cap instead of being seperate. I just think it makes it a little bit neater. I can get you the part number if needed. Or i can even get them ordered for you and you could pick them up from TPS.
  11. Ended up giving the Coupe a good cleaning yesterday. It got two coats of polish and a coat of wax! Pretty happy with how its looking at the minute!
  12. Cheers dude.. its no show car but it puts a smile on my face everytime i drive it lol
  13. Yes Jim got Marty from Mike Wylie's to make the plates up for me. Normally i get the bigger metro style plate for my car but because it was for the Coupe i had to keep it original so went for the proper lettering.
  14. Cheers Jim, It took me afew months to gather up the bits i needed but now ive everything that it was missing. So thats it totally standard,only OEM+ part is a genuine VW/Kamei golf ball style gearknob thats in fitting with the year. I will either buy a period plate or try get the original number back on as i cant warm to the modern number. I had to get the old style lettering plate made up to try make it fit in. Car will get more paint work done over the winter but for this summer il be using it as much as possible lol. Done over 100mile in it since last Friday and it never gets boring
  15. Got afew photos from the Titanic show, not the best ones as it had rain. Will get better pics this weekend. Ive been using the Coupe daily since last Friday and its some craic.
  16. Col i was actually thinking about doing that you know. But there is something about a old IXI or JXI plate that is making me want to buy one. Will maybe see what happens in this next auction and if nothing tickles my fancy then il look into the retention. Cheers for the help tho.
  17. I rang the DVA when i first got the coupe and told them the car is over in N.I now and i want to register it on a period N.I plate as i had a friend that done the same thing just before they moved over to Wales. I was told on TWO seperate occasions that this was possible (rang twice as wanted to be sure) So i sent away all the info along with a letter and still ended up with a stupid 2016 reg I was so annoyed as i would have kept the original reg if i knew it wasnt possible but i was told it could be done!!! Now the next purchase for the S is a period reg and drive away at it for the summer & enjoy!
  18. Tell me about it! The DVA were meant to give me an age related N.I plate but it was like talking to a brick wall so ive gave up. So on the lookout now for a old skool N.I plate.
  19. Yes that would have been me! I was down at the Ford show at the titanic. Picked up a wee trophy so it was a good day lol.. What is the reg you have? Im on the lookout for a plate as the DVA in Swansea dont have a clue and they messed up so im stuck with this new plate in the meantime! PM me the details asap please,cheers!
  20. Yes ive got it on the road!
  21. Gutted i missed this but i didnt get the polo back in time! Will be at the next one!!!!
  22. Im having a blast with it! Just got my seats back from being re stitched so itll be getting cleaned after work and use it this weekend then its booked in for some paint work on monday.
  23. until

    Will try and take a run up to this in the polo..
  24. yes i took it up to dubshed but just parked it out in the general car park as havnt got the bonnet or roof painted yet! Also went to the Circuit on friday night and then up to a RMS meet on sunday so clocked up over 100mile in the Coupe over the weekend! So happy with the wee car and can not wait to get it painted! Just sent off my form for the Kilbroney show in June! Itll not win any shows but il be using it as much as possible!
  25. Cheers bai... All is going well with the wee coupe,just need the dentman out to sort the passenger door then get it booked in for paint! Will hopefully have it outthis weekend to follow afew stages of the Circuit of Ireland!
