Mk2 GTi 8v

31 posts in this topic

Thought it was about time I got some pics up of my recently acquired mk2. Some of you no doubt already know the car. As soon as I seen ad for it I knew I had to have the car lol, a car I've always wanted to own.

Was really impressed at the condition of the car and my plans were really just to get it on the road again. It needed a few bits and pieces done but as the list was getting longer I decided to bite the bullet and really do it properly lol. Its had shed load of work done on the running gear, basically new suspension all round, new brakes with mk3 calipers, had gear selector kit fitted, a bit of welding and lots of other wee bits and pieces.

I've been using the car as a daily driver and it drives beautifully, people can't believe how old the car is when in it. It loves the back roads lol.

 

Have had to put it into garage though, water has been getting in round the windscreen and round the electrics and fusebox, so back in the mk4 for now til get some funds built up for repairs.

 

No doubt there will be more done over winter in preparation for next year, will keep this updated.

Thought it was time I updated this thread lol, not that a whole lot has been done.

 

It was left into Blairs to get the bootlid and windscreen scuttle rust sorted out. There was more work involved than originally thought, but Andrew done an amazing job on it.

 

Wheels were also refurbed having the lips polished,
